Stayed here in July with husband and two daughters in family suite that had two bedrooms with bathroom. Rooms were ideal for the family and nice and warm with underfloor heating and electric blankets. Adrienne and Bernie were so welcoming and helpful. They had great suggestions for filling our couple of days in Plett and also where to stop on... More

Adrienne and Bernie have years of experience running lodges in Botswana, which is plainly evident in the manner in which they look after their guests in Plett. Very comfortable rooms, lovely jacuzzi in some, attentive and helpful staff, delicious breakfast menu and the lodge is a stones throw away from the beach. Bernie and Adrienne eagerly share their wealth of... More

Thanks very much for your kind words - you really enjoyed being tourists in your own country! Congrats on the bungy jump and so glad to hear how much better the Tenikwa sunset cheetah walk is compared to other venues. Daisy loved all the attention and we hope you will visit again soon! More

This is an extremely well set up guest house, with Adrienne and Bernie being excellent hosts. The rooms were big and airy, but well heated for South African Winter, and the breakfast choice was excellent as well. Adrienne was very helpful about which restaurants to visit in town, and arranged for me and my wife to get a I'd recommend... More

The stay at Bayside Lodge was just for one night on a "stop-over" to do the bungee-jump at "Blou-Crane Bridge". The hospitality and attention of Adrienne and Bernie was outstanding and we wondered that including the top service the Lodge is only rated 4 Star. If we had more time to spare we would have stayed longer just because of... More

The reception when we arrived was warm and inviting, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bayside Lodge. The room was excellent, not to mention the enjoyable spa bath in our bathroom, and the complimentary sparkling wine, to celebrate our anniversary was a lovely, thoughtful touch. It was most definitely excellent service we received, from the time we arrived,... More

Really enjoyed staying here. Rooms and facilities excellent. Owners very friendly and willing to assist with any queries. Stayed here twice in one month and both times was very impressed. The cottage is nice and private and the rooms inside the house are very spacious and comfortable.

Bayside is a lovely guesthouse in a quiet neighbourhood within easy walking distance to the beach and the shops. Bernie and Adrienne make you feel completely at home in every way. The rooms are stylishly decorated, very spacious, light and airy. Oh, and the breakfasts are awesome too!
