My daughter and I stayed here as part of a side trip en route to safari, and were absolutely delighted with this comfortable, luxurious guest house and the amazing hospitality of Kim, Garth and the entire staff. Almost like staying in your own home, only on the bach along the Indian Ocean. Our room was comfortable and very well appointed,... More

One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at. Great people, very accommodating and the rooms are just beautiful....The super short walk to the beach (basically their back yard) was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

cowrie cove is simply amazing, it is a five star establishment with the benefit of a home away from home feel. my husband and I felt like we were on a second honeymoon, with a deluxe sweet and a spa bath and a massive walk in shower in a beautifully decorated room. the breakfast buffet is also five star with...

What a great place to stay, very high level of service offered by Kim, Garth and their team. The rooms are superb offering a very at least 4 star level of comfort. The breakfast offering has to be one off the best I've come across. There isn't much more to say other than I can't wait for my next visit.

The suite was beautifully decorated, 100% clean, top class linen. The breakfast was better than at any 5 star hotel. I loved every minute and wanted... More

This was my third visit at Cowrie Cove Guest House, and every time is better. Garth & Kim Thank very much for going out of your way to make me feel right at home. This is by far the best place next to the coast. I will see you soon. THANKS AGAIN. André
