My wife and I recently stayed at Thanda Vista B&B in Plettenberg Bay and we found the location perfect in that we could take morning walks at the beautiful lagoon and were a 4 minute drive from the awesome Lookout beach and a 5 minute drive to the town center, shops and restaurants. The rooms and adjoining bathrooms are modern and very clean and have coffee / tea facilities and a bar fridge plus all the little extras that come in handy e.g. a beach bag and towels, block out blind, a TV, heat/aircon, extra blankets, good reading lamps. The food was all well above some restaurant quality. Ben Moolman, the owner, is the consummate host and also has great information when it comes to advising guests wrt tourist activities and restaurants. Thunda vista is also pretty eco friendly with solar and rainwater being used to supplement normal supplies. The website photos do not do justice to the fantastic 270 degree views of the sea and mountains from the lounge and breakfast area. You will be hard pressed to find a better B&B anywhere – we will definitely be going back.

The location is excellent being close to the sea and also within walking distance of a couple of shopping centers. The bedroom was compact which with our 2 large suitcases and 2 small suitcases made the accommodation a bit cramped. Ben the owners a really good guy and provided a lot of useful information. Excellent breakfast
