Lovely hosts which made the visit even more enjoyable. Great location too: Within walking distance to the main street and also only 700m away from the main beach yet quiet and safe. Beautiful rooms and super views of the mountain ranges and beaches.

We only stayed one night but if we had more time we would have come back to this guest house for longer. It's a beautiful house in a great location, 2-3 mins from the beach and restaurants. Fabulous views of the beach. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. The guest house manager, Maryke, and her husband were lovely and... More

Maryke and Anton must be the sweetest hosts we've come across on our SA trip, always friendly and willing to help with anything! The B&B is top of the line; clean, cosy, amazing views (we saw a whale from the terrace!) and great location; close to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. We booked 1 night but stayed for 3 eventually...

The view from the deck is just breathtaking! Thanks to Maryke, we had a wonderful stay in Plett, she made us feel at home. This small B&B is tastefully decorated, beds are comfy and the breakfast delicious. It's very close to the beach and the town centre, so you can walk everywhere easily. Would have liked to stay a little... More

We stayed in the sea view room & the room with the balcony- both were wonderful. There is a lovely deck you can have a sundowner on before you head out for dinner. The... More

Once I was sorted out in my room Maryke told me about all the nice restaurants on the sea front. In the morning I had a healthy breakfast which was... More
