We arrived late so were extremely happy/grateful to find they had a vacancy. We were checked in by Ryszard (one half of the husband and wife team/owners). He was hugely hospitable and not only gave us a great rate but also sorted out a local chap to bring us a couple of surfboards the next morning. The room was extremely... More

Easy walk to beach even with surf boards - was up early every morning to enjoy a long walk and a swim. Weather was perfect too.... More

Thanks for your lovely words. Means a lot to me, and all our staff who do an amazing job in a very busy season! Our Wagtail family who brought their 2 chicks out on Christmas day provided so much joy to all. Yes it was wonderful to have all our guests share this endearing experience! Life is great in Africa!

Sorry about the plumbing which we hope to rectify. Was so hard with full house to get this sorted out and most businesses were still on holiday. But happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in St Francis and enjoyed our facillities as well. Outdoor showers in our garden rooms excite most of our guests! Please come back for another... More

Yes we pre-book all the best restaurants for all our guests over a 30 day period as town so very busy! That was our pleasure...we all need to eat and on holiday even more so!
