My husband and I stayed in On the Spot guesthouse whilst we were building our home nearby. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast of high quality. The hospitality of the owners made us come back every time and we will certainly recommend anyone to make a booking... You will not be disappointed!

Cute little pool. Nice big shower with great water pressure and stayed warm even after 1 person went first. Fan in... More

The small pool is... More

Super room in a lovely house. Excellent facilities. Friendly welcome, and great breakfast. St Francis Bay is without doubt one of the prettiest places we have visited, and well worth a detour, if not a stay.

Inge pays a lot of attention to detail. We were a party of five and she learnt and remembered all our names. The rooms were very elegant, clean and spacious. The breakfast was first class and nothing was to much trouble. The pool was sea water and the temperature inviting,
