The house is high above Plettenberg Bay with a great view down to the beach. The rooms are well appointed and very clean, breakfast is tasty and sumptuous. Veronica has been very helpful with bookings for dinner and golf T-times, both restaurants she booked for us where really great.

Our room which opened out on to the pool terrace was very comfortable. Veronica, who manages the property, is an extremely good host and very helpful with... More
