We booked this place for one night over the phone, same day as arrival and then ended up staying 3 nights as we loved it so much. We had an amazing double room on the top floor, which had an en-suite. Iv got to mention the step up and in bath, where you can look out onto the whole valley and dam. A definite highlight of the lodge and room. We loved it. The owner Matt recommended we set our alarm and get up for the sunrise one day as apparently our bedroom balcony was the best place to see it. So we did and were not disappointed. The hosts Matt and Vicky were warm and hospitable and gave us lots of advice and handy tips for things to do and see around the area. The best day we had was the peninsula trek, which Matt dubbed as the best day hike in South Africa. I can honestly say after 5 weeks here and lots of day hikes....Matt you were not wrong! :) The house is an amazing property overlooking a dam, lots of wildlife around, and amazong views. The garden hasdecks on different levels, a braai area and lots of seating for sundowners. We loved our three nights here. Thanks to Vicky and Matt (and the entertaining and sweet children) for a great stay, we have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone travelling to Plett. (If you dont have a car, it might be hard to get too and from the town....we had one so it was not a problem)
