The only thing that we regret about this beautiful place is the fact that we stayed here for 1 night only!!! Veronica, the manager, has great taste and recommended a fabulous place for dinner (Emily Moon) and decorated the house with candles to make us feel right at home. We felt very take care of. There are only 4 rooms...

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and also that the restaurant choice was to your liking. Actually, the guesthouse has four rooms but 2 are upstairs and tucked away so you didn't notice them. We would love to have you visit for longer next time. Fond regards Veronica

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip along the garden route and what a find! The guest house is stylish and the staff fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they suggested and organised lots of bookings for us. We will definitely be back here it was just so lovely.

Located on a hill facing the ocean, it has a great view of Plattenberg Bay and Robberg peninsula. There is a tiny pool in front of the room for guests to relax while enjoying the views of the bay. The room and bed were huge. I had the impression that the double bed was the equivalent of two queen-size beds...
