Lovely view and rustic charm. Great food and friendly hosts. My favourite place to stay in East London whether for work or holiday. Animal lovers get ready for cat cuddles and cute playful dogs. Have a drink in the pool and relax.

We stopped over for the night on our way up to Transkei. Such a Gem, wonderful hosts. Spacious lovely rooms . Kids loved the pool and watching animals passing by. Enjoyed the Braai and Breakfast 😀 Such a devine setting to relax and unwind

The rooms are all well appointed, with lots of touches of the "bush" from the breakfast eggs from their own chickens, the quaint shower heads from reclaimed metal, to the photos on the walls done from a door frame

Santa Paloma was my base during the Sardine Run this year. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this guest house. After being on the water for nine straight ours there is nothing better than sitting on the porch relaxing, listening to nature and watching wildebeest, zebra, and antelope. A truly amazing way to unwind. The owner Jacques and his daughter Nadia were fantastic. They make sure you have everything you need. Food was great every night and they truly accommodated to there guests (catered to my allergies with no problems). The rooms were great. Had everything you need. The coolest thing about the guest house is that it is completely self-sustainable. They really do their best to take care of the land they are on. When I come back for the Sardine Run, Santa Paloma will definitely once again be my home base. Cheers!

We stayed for one night in March during our annual road trip - this year 40 nights in 11 properties, so this review is relatively objective. Relatively easily found, with some of the approach track needing a little care, but no major problem. Well - where to start ? Brilliant location on a rise overlooking a pond, fields and woods, complete with various game. Accommodation ranging from our 'family' en suite room to I think a bunkhouse. The communal area was very 'hostely' but full of warmth and character, with dining and recreational areas in what had presumably previously been a barn as evidenced by feeding troughs and various items of farm machinery/equipment on display. Our room was comfortable, with a bunk bed supplementing our double bed. Did the job without being in any way luxurious, which is something that's not claimed anyway ! Our need for dinner was confirmed on the cellphone during the afternoon and consisted of a simple well cooked meal. The honesty bar provided cold beer and wine. The owner and his staff are obviously in love with the place and their lifestyle, which makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. Great to sit outside in the evening with a beer watching the world and the game go by ! Breakfast was simple, but adequate. Amazing value for money. It's not the style of place that we normally stay in - more perhaps for 'genuine' travellers - but would return if in the area again - it's brilliant and we sincerely hope that the owners' aspirations for his property materialise - LOVED IT ! Highly Recommended
