We stayed here for one night during our drive along the garden route and I only wish we had planned to stay longer. Aquavit is an absolutely gorgeous property, every detail has been thought out and Linda and Ole made us feel as if we were being welcomed into the home of long time friends. The rooms are spacious, beautifully... More

We stayed a couple of nights. Linda and Ole made us feel comfortable like at home. Rooms are very nicely designed and furnished. Each room shows different and accurate decoration. We felt very sorry to leave his fantastic place. Highly recommended.

Have a breakfast in a wonderful landscape tasting craft dishes and very good muffins and french croissants. We have received great help in chosing the place to visit and the restaurants.

We had the most wonderful stay at the Aquavit B&B in Plettenburg in April. Their hospitality really was second to none and the accommodation itself will make this one of the most memorable places we'll have stayed. Truly beautiful surroundings, wonderful food and very comfortable, clean and most beautifully decorated room. We were made to feel very much at home... More

The art of traveling well is to feel at home. From the moment we arrived, Linda and Ole welcomed us warmly into their wonderful home. It feels very much as though you are staying with friends.

My husband and I stayed at Aquavit whilst on honeymoon. We were welcomed by Linda and Ole who instantly made us feel at home and gave us lots of information about activities and restaurants which helped us plan our trip. You can also purchase wine from an extensive list from their cellar which made for a nice evening treat. Our... More

We have stayed in many B and Bs around the world, and would honestly relate Aquavit as one on the best ever. More like going to a luxury boutique hotel, but with the added benefit of really caring and charming owners, Linda and Ole. Rooms amazing, breakfasts perfect, and 2 cuddly retrievers to welcome you. And amazing views of the... More

First impressions are either downers or appetizers. In the case of Aquavit the first impression sets ones expectations on to a pedestal. Go in, and you are blown away. The decor, architecture, furniture and fittings are to be experienced. Cast your eye out over the unrivaled view of the Keurbooms River, the ocean and the mountain backdrop, and like Chief... More
