This was one of the nicest places we stayed on our trip. Very comfortable and clean! If this town were not so incredible I could have stayed in the big king bed all day because it was so comfortable! Cute little pool. Nice big shower with great water pressure and stayed warm even after 1 person went first. Fan in the room and satellite tv. The owners were really great and we enjoyed chatting with them while we checked in and ate a cooked to order breakfast. Food was excellent! Parking was in an enclosed safe area. You can walk less than a block to see Bruce's beauty's famous surf spot. The little town was great with lots of good food options and shopping. The people in this town were what really sets this area apart. Wish we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be back!

The B&B is about 1 km away from the centre of the village and just a little further from the "Canal area" at St Francis Bay. Inge made us feel most welcome throughout the stay, with good local advice, good breakfasts, and good service. The room is very well equipped and practical, and cleanliness was exceptional. The small pool is good for cooling off on a hot day.

Super room in a lovely house. Excellent facilities. Friendly welcome, and great breakfast. St Francis Bay is without doubt one of the prettiest places we have visited, and well worth a detour, if not a stay.

I recently had the pleasure of spending two nights here at the end of January. My room was one of the nicest and cleanest that I have been in ages !!. Great shower !! & great pressure !!. I am always disappointed with a weak shower !!. Inge & Stephen are really great hosts, and would have no trouble recommending " On the spot B/B "
