A home away from home!!! We couldn’t have picked a better place to spend our last evening along the garden route. The breakfast we give an extra 6th star, ABSOLUTELY EXQUISITE! Susan made us feel right at home from the word go and she has a keen eye for detail. You will definitely be seeing us again. Thank you for... More

The most beautiful place, wonderful interior, crashing waves, best breakfast ever! Top all that with the kindest hospitality from Susan and Fred and you have a small insight insight into Air Del Mar. We made the mistake of booking only one night there ( big mistake...huge!) and rearranged our trip to spend more time. We are now booking to go... More

We stayed in Mossel Bay for one night on a stop over from Hermanus to Plettenburg and we were disappointed when we arrived as we wished we had booked to stay for longer. The house is beautifully decorated with stunning views of the beach and sea. The host Susan was so welcoming and obviously takes great pride in her guesthouse... More

This guesthouse is absolutely beautiful, with breaktaking views of the ocean, as it is, of course very close to the beach. The rooms are well appointed with luxurious linen and lovely bathrooms. Good WIFI. But the highlight must be the scrumptuous breakfasts Susan cooks every morning. It was an adventure to see the different place settings every day, with the... More
