“A quiet and pleasant retreat, beautiful hosts and a wonderful time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had such a splendid time at Masescha... the property is breathtaking and the facilities beyond adequate. Our hosts, Ray and Angie, added that personal touch to our stay and went out of their way to cater to our needs. The breakfast is a definite must, and if you have good weather the Estate is situated in close proximity to a number of tourist hot spots. We would definitely return... it is simply idyllic for two lovers escaping the bustle of the city.

Room Tip: We stayed in a catered room, which was perfect for us. But if you are looking to cook, then you shou...

We really enjoyed our stay with so much to do in the surrounding area , yet returning after a busy day to the peace and tranquillity of Masescha to chill out and relax .It was so friendly even the dog Jasper only wanted his tummy tickling all the time and in the morning a Mallard duck kept arriving for breakfast!.Our unit waswell equipped and very clean while the breakfast was very varied including some of Angies home made muffins and jams.A lovely pleasant stay.

This is one the nicest places we stayed in while in South Africa! The room was up to par with midrange hotels. The owners are more than friendly, location excellent (very near Plett Bay and Knysna), and the estate overall is beautiful. There are presumably a lot of nice places to stay at the Garden Route that are a great value for money, and this is definitely one of those places.

Masescha Country Estate is a great place to relax just off the busy N2 road on the Garden Route yet completely quiet and with great dark skies to star gaze. There are many places to visit nearby and Angie and Ray will be only too glad to help. We booked for dinner, bed and breakfast and had a really great evening meal provided by Angie and her son Joshua. Our accomodation, Sunbird Cottage was very comfortable with kitchenette and separate bedroom. Satellite TV was also provided with a good choice of channels, something that was missing from most of the other places we stayed in SA. We only wished we could have stayed there longer and had time to enjoy a really nice place with friendly company. The next time we are back in SA we will definitely stop here.

Wonderful setting and super accommodation. Angie and Ray perfect hosts with plenty of knowlege of surrounding area. Please book the evening meal as Angie is a super cook and the presentation was great. We had a lovely time with them and both us and our friends would certainly visit them again should we go back to South Africa.
