“Extremely good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

When we booked this from UK it is always difficult when you know nothing about the place. We hit the jackpot, the whole experience was just wonderful, the owners, helpful and nice, we would recommend this B & B as a must!

We really enjoyed our time. Having a sea view room with balcony it was wonderful to enjoy a glass of wine between our day trips and going out for dinner.

We got lots of great ideas for trips and activities and excellent dinner suggestions and reservations.

If back to Plettenberg Bay we would stay in Thanda Vista again. No doubt.

We found the Thanda Vista to be very welcoming and comfortable. Althougho ur bedroom was quite small it was comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent with a lovely view overlooking the bay. We enjoyed our interesting chats with JP and Petro, the very friendly owners.

JP the host made us feel extremely welcome and at home. He helped us to book 2 excellent restaurants, the Lemon Grass just down the road is definitely worth a visit. Excellent breakfast overlooking the view of the bay. Rooms were well equipped with balconies and towels were provided for use on the beach.

Comfortable B & B (and more). Seven themed rooms were comfortable. Warm welcome from owners that continued for the three night stay. Great breakfast, served with great thought and care. Super views from dining room. Internet wifi in public areas. Excellent advice on local attractions and restaurants.

Local town has several very good restaurants. The beach is a short walk from Thanda Vista.

One of the most best hosts I have come across. The place is clean. Rooms are mid-sized but comfortable. Small details have been taken care of.

The old couple running the place were very gracious. During the (hearty) breakfast one can really feel the warmth, they put in a lot of effort themselves. I highly recommend the place!

Very friendly and welcoming couple running this place. Full of good advice on places to go and obviously very proud of where they live. The arrival is a little formal - owner wanted to know where we'd been and where we were going before we could check in! Could be done at the same time. But very chatty and couldn't be more helpful - allowed me to use washing line, pegs and iron so we didn't look too bedraggled on our onward journey!!
