“Beyond all expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We booked a chalet for one night at the rest camp to break up a long journey back to Cape Town whilst taking in the sights of Cape Agulhas.....It was incredible and way beyond any expectations we had.
The location is incredible, natural wild rugged beauty and you feel like the only people there.
The chalets are wonderfully equipped, super comfy beds, good lighting (I always notice!) .... could not fault it at all.
The worst part was that we had to leave...... cannot wait to go back!
I hope that they don't add more accommodation, as mentioned in the review below, but simply leave it as beautiful untouched lagoons, sweeping beaches to be explored.

Also to add, although it did not apply to us, our chalet was fully equipped to house wheel chair guests with spacious bathrooms, doorways and boardwalks providing easy access. I have not noticed this anywhere else in South Africa.

Room Tip: All fantastic.

and more wow!

We had booked this as a fallback and would have cancelled our one night here had we been able to stay on at our previous hotel but thank goodness we couldn't. SANparks have excelled themselves here. Not only a prime position in a staggeringly beautiful location but great accommodation too.

The camp is relatively new and looks set to be expanded from the current eight units plus one larger guest house that sits apart from the other units. All are well equipped, comfortable and set well apart and in a stunning, peaceful location. Views from your own private deck across the fynbos to the ocean with nothing and no-one in between. A wonderful lagoon right on the doorstep and a twitchers paradise. A real sanctuary. Did not feel like the type of place we normal folk have any right to be in - felt too exclusive but in a lovely natural way. Not really sure want to encourage anyone else to go here - we want it all for ourselves. Perfect isolated bliss.

Had an amazing evening sitting on the deck (wrapped in blankets!) watching the sun set across the blue blue waters with white sand setting off the water and vegetation colours in an unimaginably beautiful way. Then lit the log fire and waited for the moon to rise across the ocean and added some amazing moon lit pictures to the earlier sunset ones. Reluctantly left the next morning. An unexpected delight and one to be repeated as soon as possible.
