This must be the only house in Stilbaai that is built in this style.Makes you think a little bit of an elaborate movie set.The first adventure is finding the reception,which does not exist as far as I could see.On entering the house you wonder if you are still outside, a pathway through the middle of the house passes 2 fishing boauts filled with surfboards etc. The stairs lead up to Mishell and Jack that get you settled in your surreal room with smiles. The unit that we were in is large. Eerything that you need for self-catering is available but breakfast is not available. The unit has been decorated in a style that nothing matches andf this includes crockery,furniture,etc. The overall effect works though.
The views of the bay are beautiful from your bed.The property adjoins a nature reserve with direct access to hiking trials.
Peaceful and relaxing.

How is Charlotte House no 3??? We stayed here in November on our way to Cape Town along the Garden Route - Whilst the surrounding area is just as it intimates - still - it was a perfect stopover on our journey. The house is beautifully decorated and the apartment we had was so spacious - we ate in to make the most of it. Our hosts were great and we left Charlotte house relaxed after a lovely night, fabulous breakfast and two chinese lanterns which we are saving for a special occasion! Thank you!

Beautifully designed and decorated. It is in a very quite area and with some nice views all round. The units are very spacious and the kitchen well equipped. No TV, but then again we did not go there to watch TV. 2 months later and my 6 year old daughter still talked about it.

The Charlotte House is really beautiful - designed and decorated to create a peaceful and relaxed environment. A great and spacious break-away from the daily grind. We felt very welcome, small kids included.
We were the only visitors, but it could be that the kitchen area in our apartment is not so sound proof if there are lots of visitors. That is not proven though and just a minor thing that could bother visitors. The bedroom is very quiet.

If u are on your way to the Garden Route to visit all the National Parks and explore the beautiful East Coast of S.A. u definitely have to come thru Stilbaai, which is a wonderful little village right on the indian ocean with an estuary, river mouth and a little harbor. There u´ll find the Charlotte House, which is exactly what u need after a long drive thru the beautiful landscape of S.A.
The Charlotte House with their lovely, very helpful hosts Meshell and Jack Andrew and it´s big, wonderful decorated apartments creates a very warm and familiar atmosphere, where u are able to come down, relax and enjoy your time with your family or friends while u are watching one of S.A.´s beautiful sunsets on your terrace in front of your apartment.
I must really say that the Charlotte house is one of the most beautiful and peaceful guesthouses I´ve ever been and it´s definitely worth it to stay there just for short or long periods. I promise u that once u have been there u´ll want to come back!

I fell in love with Charlotte House well before I saw it in the flesh. Just from its website and the look and feel of the accommodation, I knew I'd like this special property. So I earmarked it and when the occasion arose for me to finally escape from my busy business, I booked Charlotte House. Not having been Stilbaai since I was a child, I was greatly looking forward to enjoying this beautiful coastal town and sharing it with my daughter.

It was with such delight that Charlotte House not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. Jack and Me'shell were super welcoming and helpful, giving us good advice on where to go and what to do, and just providing an air of total "mi casa es su casa" - my home is your home.

At the same time, the suites themselves were private and generously sized, providing the luxury of ample space and charming, tasteful interiors. Jack & Me'shell are gifted in their ability to create such delectable accommodation which is so endearing, and just embodies a relaxing, memorable holiday experience.

I was much in need of a battery recharge, and Charlotte House definitely achieved the required result! This had much to do with the accommodation itself - which invites you to put your feet up, grab a book and enjoy gazing at the ocean from your patio - and also because of its fabulous location bordering pristine nature reserve. Waking up to bird call as the sun peeped through the shutters was an every morning experience. Bliss!

Charlotte House is one of those places that stays in your heart and whispers in your ear to come back again, and again... It was everything I'd hoped for and more!
