We stayed here for 6 days and we adored everything about it. The guest rooms are all en-suite with spacious bathrooms and are spotlessly clean. The beds are very comfortable with fluffy pillows. Waking up to the amazing river view in the morning with the birds singing outside just made everyday that much more special.
The guesthouse is perfectly located by the lagoon with peaceful views of mountain & river. A short walk away is the farmers' market which sells fresh oysters, bread and other local produce at the weekend.
The communal area at the guesthouse is spacious with an amazing front garden that the hosts sometimes have braais for the guests. There is also a front porch area that is great to sip tea in a glorious afternoon and watch the sun go down.
We very much enjoyed our time there and would recommend this to anyone travelling on the garden route.
