With good size, clean rooms with access to... More

This place was so welcoming that we spent many hours lingering at the stunning pool, enjoying the view over the bay and soaking up the sun in the lush garden. Breakfast is very lekker and Kirsten & Sven went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. Our room lead out to the garden and was well equipped. We are... More

The owner Kirsten was very friendly and helped us with tips for hikes, activities and dinner (the Kitchen Window restaurant right at the beach was fantastic!). We had the Africa Suite at the Ocean Bay which came with... More

The guesthouse is owned by a German couple, therefore I wasn't surprised to find a very clean, nicely designed and modern room. I was surprised though how pretty and spacious the room was for that price. Great bathroom, kitchenette and the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. I mean it! The amazing breakfast was served on the terrace.... More

Totally impressed with this B&B - we stayed in the Shell self-catering apartment which was as advertised: small, self contained apartment with basic kitchen facilities. The decor was modern and homely, bathroom clean and kitchen small with all necessary facilities, DStv and a small safe were also available for use. The B&B is situated a little out of the main...
