My friend and I had the most wonderful stay at this home away from home. The 2 Dutch ladies go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are into details. All was perfect. The beds were the best ever at a hotel/B&B. We will certainly go back.

This was one of our favorite accommodations during our vacation in South Africa. Kate and Nathalie are very welcoming! They totally rebuilt this B&B about five years ago, and so the accommodations are new and first class. The shower and bathroom were spacious and modern, the beds are very comfortable, and the decor is beautiful. The B&B has a lovely... More

The Double Dutch was one of the highlights of our trip! It is a luxurious BnB with two great hosts! The view from the breakfast area and the pool deck is breathtaking. Breakfast is very good and you can easily walk to the city center of Kmysna and the Waterfront within 10 minutes.

Five of us stayed in Double Dutch in January this year. Kate and Nathalie are wonderful hosts! They run a spotless B&B with a beautiful view over the lagoon. The beds in the generous sized rooms are super comfortable and we all had great sleeps which we very much needed after our long drive and the en-suites had nice big... More

My husband and I were delighted with DD. Nathalie and Kate were so attentive and helpful - booking excellent restaurants and arranging a taxi for us. Our room was superb and attention to detail was excellent. The whole area and gardens are beautifully designed with great style. We would love to have stayed longer.

Very welcoming hosts made for a fantastic start to our stay at Double Dutch. We soon had meals booked at restaurants (all of which were excellent) and suggestions for places to visit the following day. We will certainly return if we visit this area again and recommend Double Dutch unreservedly.

The Double Dutch was the best guesthouse we ever had. Kate and Nathalie are so friendly, we enjoyed our stay with them very much. Great breakfast! We had the "Eagle" room - very comfortable. We hope to come back! Highly recommended! Thank you Kate + Nathalie!
