There are times when you are traveling that, on rare occasions, you arrive at a destination to a welcome that is warm and friendly - and you feel immediately at 'home' and relaxed. You meet your hosts, immediately connect, and feel like you are visiting long-lost friends. I guess the commercial reality is that this does not happen by accident... More

I was impressed by the quality of the self-catering unit, and the little touches included in the daily servicing. High quality accommodation at a good price, a short drive outside of Plett. I will definitely stay again if in the area.

The cottages are set in lovely grounds with wonderful views. Unfortunately we didn't have v good weather (apparently it was unusually cold and warmed up again the day we left!) so lit the fires in the evening and Brain cooked us delicious meals. The swimming pool area looked fabulous but unfortunately we didn't get to use it!

Don't be misled by the word studio. The apartment is huge, with great views. Only slight drawback was the private outside area, not very welcoming. But there were plenty of other outdoor places to sit. Grounds are extensive' and attractive. Outdoor furniture a little jaded and will need replacing soon. There are two friendly pet pigs, and a dog.

Wonderful property and grounds, loved playing with the dogs and Ruby and Raleigh the pet porkers were amusing and cheeky characters. Our travel agent did not make it clear there were various animals and whilst we loved them I know people who would not have been comfortable, especially with the piggies.

Fynbos Ridge is a hidden gem just outside the village of Plettenberg. I was not so impressed by Plettenberg, it is just a seaside town with a long sandy beach with not a lot of swimming to be done because of the waves (and the water is rather cold, even here) However, off the main through road, there is this...

we had fabulous two night stay at Fynbos Ridge. We had a two bedroom cottage which was ideal for my family. Lovely bathrooms and products. The owners brought down dinner in the evenings for us as we were staying with our four year old. The piggies wandering the estate were a highlight together with the great views. Breakfast is superb.... More

Stayed for four nights in feb/march with husband and baby daughter. A lovely friendly welcome. Cottage: The cottage was amazing, really nicely decorated, spacious, great views and secure. The cot provided for our baby was brilliant - a proper wooden cot with drop down side and thick mattress. We were in the furthest cottage so wifi coverage was patchy but... More

We had come over a very long mountain pass so were grubby and our car muddy. This oasis of calm was very welcome. We stayed in the big house in a superb room that was huge, with a bed seven feet wide and everything else you could expect. There's somewhere to sit outside (or rather a huge patio), a massive...

We have stayed several times in one of the cottages and once in the house. Everything is welcoming ,comfortable and with lovely views. The owners and staff do all they can to make your stay as memorable as possible. We will be back.
