From the moment you step foot inside Thanda Vista till the moment you leave, J.P.(as he likes to be known) his wife and very capable staff tend to your every need. Beautiful fresh fruit salad and various juice, cut meats cheeses, cereals the list just goes on, but the crème de le crème are the choices for an English cooked...

Have stayed with JP and Petro many times during my adventures around SA and have always found them to be the most wonderful hosts. The accommodation is top notch and breakfast served looking out over a breath taking view can't be beaten . JP's local knowledge about places to eat and things to do is a great help to ensure...

A nice stay located in the subarea of Plettenberg Bay town center. The service was good but the size of the room a little to small for 2 person with lagguage. The view of the bay from the guest house roof was fantastic. As well as the breakfast.

Many thanks for your review and we are pleased to learn that you had a nice stay. We have noted your remarks about the size of the extra room and that is why we have provided space for luggage in one of the cupboards. I probably did not point this out you. My apology! Kind regards JP

Thanda Vista is a great place to stay and JP is a welcoming host. When we arrived he asked us where we'd been already and suggested places we may also like to visit. At one point there was an issue with water supply to the whole area, completely out of JP's control but he did everything he could to ensure...

It is impossible to fully convey just how special this B&B is. I have not experienced this kind of attention to detail combined with such a personal level of service in any other establishment. Everything was perfect, if you try to think what would make your stay more comfortable J.P and Petro have already implemented it. The best accommodation we...

Tanda Visa was one of a few places we stayed at while on holiday along the garden route in January 2015. The host JP is very friendly,helpful and efficient in all he does. Breakfast each morning is good and the rooms have everything you need. Tanda Vista has a hotel feel about it and I would recommend anytime.

The owners were so incredibly sweet, we would have loved to stay longer. Despite our late arrival (we accidentally arrived an hour late) and the owners need to attend a function, he took the time to walk us through all the details of the area we would need to know. In the morning they served a fantastic breakfast in the...
