If you can stay a bit longer, you have to:)we just stayed one night but could be definitely more. The people are so friendly and they gave you a few informations about the place and around this place. Breakfast was really good and i liked the place so much.

We were offered a room inside with a jacuzzi but we opted for the room outside and... More

We stayed the night here whilst travelling the garden route. The hospitality was absolutely first class. Every travellor's need considered. Comfortable beds, roomy bathroom and first class breakfast - what more could you ask for. Hosts knowledgeable and helpful, even got me an immediate doctor appointment to help me get over travellers tummy!

Thank you so much for this review Sean - we enjoyed having you and your family to stay. Glad you liked the eggs benedict and Daisy loved all the attention! We are putting a range extender upstairs for the wifi which should improve the signal. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in South Africa! More

what a delight to be met by Bernie and Adrienne after a long extremely hot drive. Their secret is the attention to detail which makes the stay so special. Its comfortable yet luxurious, warm yet secluded. The staff are delightful and the breakfast was out of this world. I'll be back.

We had a very brief but enjoyable stay at the Bayside. Very welcoming and thoughtful hosts, so much so, that, as we visited just before Christmas, they had taken the trouble to book restaurants for both our evenings in Plettenberg ! Without this attention to detail, we would never have been able to dine at the two most picturesque and... More
