This lovely guest house is within 2 minute walk of a fabulous beach. One day I shared the huge expanse with 2 fishermen the next I walked up the river with the birds, just beautiful. The hosts are extremely helpful and booked us trips to the local game reserve, just fabulous and shark diving, amazing. The rooms are comfortable with... More

We stayed for one night. Location is just off the N2 east of Mossel bay. About 10 minute drive to town. The owner is very kind and helpful. We felt welcome here. Our room had a good standard, but the wifi signals were unfortunately not very good - but our room was at the end of the corridor, so other... More

Clean, comfortable and spacious room. This is one of the few locations I experienced during my trips with enough furniture to allow you to remove all your stuff from your baggage and put it in a wardrobe (if you wish). Just two minor notes: breakfast is a bit limited with few options and location really requires you to have a... More

Rude email stating that we had not confirmed or paid a deposit therefore cancelled room despite us emailing confirmation - rang to discuss and reconfirm. Peter tried to put us off by listing disadvantages of place. Then rang back saying we could not wait at the place on check out for bus to pick us up. Clear he did not... More

Very clean and spacious room and bathroom - very helpful owners - well equipped kitchen with a nice community living room. Without doubt a nice place to stay. The beach in walking distance is inviting and the restaurant nearby is really worth a visit!

We just came back from South Africa and we stayed for 2 nights in the Little Brak Beach House. The rooms and the bathrooms are very spacious and clean. There is a great garden where you can use the grill for a wonderful braai, great included breakfast and wifi, well equipped kitchen and the house is located only a few... More

Fantastic place. Got there late, around 10.00pm, but Phillip was very accommodating. The room was big with a lovely shower room and the communal breakfast area and garden space were divine. Julia gave us some helpful travel trips and we wish we could have stayed longer. The beach was five minutes away, full of jellyfish and mussel shells. Picturesque and... More

This is a great location if you want a nice quiet time to chill out and take in the beautiful beach scenery. A bit out of the way (Mosselbay town is about 150 rand taxi ride away) but a very quiet and relaxed place. We saw whales very close to the beach and even a penguin that looked a bit... More

This is a perfect location if your just looking to chill and do nothing. We stayed here for 4 nights in early July which is winter time here. Thankfully the weather was lovely in the day so we went for really long walks along the beach and spotted a couple of whales not far from the shore which was fantastic.... More

We really enjoyed staying in this homely, peaceful hostel. It's really close to the beach, and has all the facilities you would need. As we visited in off-season, we had the whole apartment to ourselves! The staff were incredibly helpful, as they advised us on lots of places to visit along the Garden Route. The free breakfast was lovely as... More
