We stayed for two nights on a tour of the garden route. The cottages are well placed for things in Plettenberg. We stayed in Clivia cottage which is spacious and has everything you could need. The owners are friendly, helpful and brilliant hosts. We had breakfasts on both days and it was fantastic (thank you Brian). All freshly made and... More

We recently stayed at this stunning venue for a far too brief couple of days. The natural beauty of the whole area and immediate surroundings at Fynbos is extraordinary. The entire experience is punctuated by constant song from the 87 species of birds that frequent the area,possibly attracted by the amazing variety of plant life as well as the myriad... More

Words are not enough to describe this jewel, you need to experience it with all your senses. Aristea cottage was perfect for our family of five, it is perfectly catered with every last detail taken care of. Top drawer bedding, sumptuous bath towels, cosy fireplaces and oodles of tea and yummy biscuits. The bird life and gardens are abundant with... More

Fynbos Ridge is a wonderful place to stay if it is your first trip to the area. The location was great, surrounded by nature and also a short drive to Plettenburg Bay. Our hosts were absolutely amazing, truly going above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I will most certainly be returning!!

A complete oasis and a birds' paradise We adored the place! We stayed in the Blue Lily room - excellent choice - Having direct access to the terrace was a bonus. The bird life was out of this world. We could have easily stayed there a week! Our hosts and staff were delightful and so helpful. I was however sorry... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for us. Glad to report that Brian is feeling much better! The Loeries have been very busy feeding on the forest grapes growing on the veranda, but yes, they are camera shy....but so beautiful! More

We stayed in the Clivia cottage on the magnificent estate of Fynbos Ridge and were subjected to a weekend of opulence and extreme comfort. The kitchen was well equipped for all your culinary needs, bathrooms oozed with refinement and the bedrooms were draped in luxury. Comfort is the word of the day here, enveloped by pristine local vegetation, birds and... More

The house is beautiful as well as the gardens. Just a very short drive to Plettenberg and Robberg. Perfect breakfast. We stayed only for one night but would have loved to stay for at least a week. A little tip on Robberg: the long walk is really long and difficult and exausting, take a lot of water and a picknik... More

We absolutely loved our time at Fynbos Ridge. We wanted peace & quiet and that's what we got. The cottages were perfect and the views were superb. A very comfortable stay. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our garden route trip. Although just off the N2 arterial road it feels as if it's in the middle of nowhere (in a good way). We were in the main building in the ground floor Plumbago room which was very large, well furnished and nicely appointed. Our friends were in the... More

Thank you for the comprehensive review, and we are happy that you enjoyed Fynbos Ridge and Brian's breakfast offering! So sorry about the wifi, we had installed boosters recently, which worked very well until the local telephone provider (not the ISP) started replacing the cables in the area and due to the line "dropping" it affected the wifi quality -...
