A very rustic beach house. Many of our appliances are older than us, but work perfectly! - so if you want luxury it's not for you- but very functional, with everything you need in a self catering. Position is everything. Fantastic river frontage, out of the wind, relaxing and peaceful. A haven for the outdoor person. 7 minutes walk to the beach if you prefer the sea. Good fishing in front of the house. A real Garden Route experience. Excellent springboard to 9 top class golf courses, as well as many Garden Route towns like Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Oudtshoorn and Mossel Bay. The perfect place to kick back and relax on the verandah with a cold one, whilst the barbeque fire is blazing in front of the river.

Very nice owners who are willing to help out in any way they can. The house is basic, not fancy, but has lots of space and you will rarely be inside anyway because there is so much to do in the area and the beach is so close. Large lawn for playing, sunning or grilling your dinner. Nice place to... more

My title of this review says it all. "The Place to Chill" I have stayed at Joan's place on two separate occasions and going back again in November. I will not stay anywhere else on the Garden Route, it's home from home for me. I live in Cape Town, with beauty all around me yet I feel the need to... more

Ample & comfortable accomodation in a beautiful and versatile setting. The patio/deck is huge & overlooks the Great Brak river. It is the most peaceful experience just sitting overlooking the magnificent scenery, swimming in the river, having a braai at the water's edge, or walking a few minutes around to the beautiful beach - one does not need to leave... more

How to get there
Airport: George International Airport: 12.4 mi

Take the Great Brak River turnoff off the N2 (Groot Brakrivier) From the George side you will go to the left and then immediately left again – from the Mossel Bay side you will take the offramp left and then RIGHT at the Stop sign. You will then come to another Stop at a T-junction. Here, turn to the left and go past “ De Dekke “, followed by a bridge over the river. Directly after this bridge, turn sharply to the right, going over a railway line. Follow the road for a few hundred metres, just past the Transkaroo Restaurant, until you see a sign saying “ The Island” or “ Die Eiland”. Turn to the right at the sign and then go over the narrow bridge, taking the second turnoff to the left (at the phone booth). Joan's Place is DIRECTLY opposite the tennis court, wit...
