We booked this lodge last minute, called up the owners (so sorry can't remember names) and they secured the booking straight away, didn't even require a deposit. We arrived the next day, the lodge is on the edge of town, up an avenue right at the end. WHAT A LOCATION!!! Mountains in the garden and we had an awesome balcony overlooking the ocean, I was watching wales breaching from the balcony, unforgettable. We had a new room, The Francolin Room, massive room, massive bed, great bathroom - everything was fantastic. As with most guest houses in SOuth Africa, the breakfast was fantastic, the honesty bar was cheap and the staff fantastic. If you are looking for a quiet lodge with fantastic views thats only a very short Tuk Tuk ride to town then stay here!
