What a beautifully fitted, well organized, sparkling clean self-catering apartment situated on a pristine bay! Well worth the drive from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town. Luc and Sue take care of all your needs with a smile, despite it being a self catering set-up. Will definitely be back and would recommend it to any family member or friend!

What can we say. Probably the ultimate best stay in the area. Excellent rooms and phenomenal views. The owners are just too fabulous. Fantastic breakfast as well. It's also excellent value for money. Very private and absolutely just beautiful.

Luc and Sue are the perfect host and hostess. This is the third time we have been to stay with them, and, once again, everything was very good indeed. Other B&B owners should visit this establishment to see how it should be done.

Not only is the positioning of this hotel (directly on the beach only a few steps to the ocean) breathtaking but the entire experience of being pampered by the Owners Luc and Sue in this superbly fitted out luxury lodge is equaly so. Rooms are stunning, luxuriously furnished with finest Egyptian cotton bed linens and great bathrooms with invigorating showers... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way down the west coast. It's on a private estate so no through traffic which makes it lovely and quiet except for the sound of the waves on the shore. Everything about Oystercatcher says quality and that the owners know what they are doing. We were greeted by Sue as though we... More

Great weekend break. We stayed one night wished we had stayed longer. We stayed in the honeymoon suite room 4. Stunning views. super comfortable bed and what great pillows. Loved the netting over the bed - so romantic. Great to have both bath and shower and a big plus are the white soft fluffy towels. Spotlessly clean. The pool overlooks... More

This guesthouse is truly beautiful with the most gorgeous view. The rooms are spacious clean and comfortable. There is not much to do in the area so its the kind of place you would go to escape, walk on the beach, relax and read a good book. The breakfasts are lovely and the owners (Sue and Luc) are welcoming, accomodating... More
