Very positive surprise to find this stately yet homely overnight accomodation on our way from Cape Town via Plett to Joburg. We definitely want to come again - next time with better weather and more time.

Fantastic property and hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the house. Superb location set high upon the ridge with views over the sweeping valley below- lovely secluded swimming pool and outside terrace. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts made us feel very welcome.Only down side was that we felt for the price of the room air conditioning should have been available.

Thank you for the review, and we hope that the rest of your honeymoon was wonderful. We do not have air-conditioners in order to comply with Eco-friendly grading of companies we have membership with.
We do not normally need air-conditioners, as the weather is usually pleasant and mild, but we must admit that the heatwave in January this year was very hot. Hottest weather that we have experienced since moving here!
We would love to have you visit us one day again, perhaps on an anniversary?

Very pleasant stay at Fynbos ridge. Relaxing, staff very very kind (everybody), food excellent (wonderful breakfast), rooms very clean and beautiful surroundings. Close to Plettenberg beaches. All this area is great to visit.

Wonderful hospitality, breathtaking views and so peaceful yet just 10 minute drive into Plattenberg Bay. Food was outstanding, dinner wasn't offered every night, but we ate there every time it was, it was so good! The children were disappointed that the swimming pool was very small and rather too green, they didn't really go in it, not that it mattered. No hesitation in recommending a stay there.

Thank you for the great review. We are so sorry about the pool, the pump broke over the public holiday period, and we were only able to get parts when the pool business re-opened. Needless to say the pool is back in sparkling condition. We hope that you visit us again, and to the little piano player - keep it up, you are very talented!

Was a great stay in a great resort - wished we could have stayed for longer. Price in relation to five star rating can be perhaps reviewed, especially for families. Could look at extra incentives in the price.

Our hosts were warm and welcoming and so accommodating! Very comfortable beds with well furnished and equally comfortable serviced cottages. Beautiful peaceful surrounds; all in all - I'll be going back!

Excellent service, great position and superb accommodation make for an all round great stay. We particularly enjoyed the great food served up by Brian, although we probably ate too much. Any advice or recommendations we needed we welcomed with a smile and prompt response. The cottage was very peaceful for us as a family, it felt really quite private. Note the wifi access is not available at the cottages, really good for some to help get away from things. Fynbos Ridge is well positioned just a few kms outside Plettenberg Bay. Thanks for a great stay.

Thank you for the lovely review! We appreciate it. We are planning to extend the WiFi coverage (it is only the cottages that are currently out of range), so within a short while the boosters should allow access to the internet from all our units. (Not sure if this is a good or bad thing if you want to get away from it all). Hope that 2014 is a good year for you!
