What a beautiful home, rooms are gorgeous, view is amazing and the breakfast was delicious. Lulama was incredible, such a friendly woman and made amazing food, she also did some of our washing so she was a saving grace. The manager is also such a lovely person. Access to beach is very convenient. The owners didn't introduce themselves, I could... More

We stayed at the Southern Cross Beach house for 3 nights. The photos online are exactly as the guest house appears and the place has a wonderful colonial feel to it, with white wooden balustrades and decks, with the palest of pink walls and lovely pale pink bougainvillea winding its way up to the second balcony. We were greeted by... More

What a cute colonial style house! The whole house and the rooms have such a beautiful and warm design, everything is decorated with such a taste. In the evening you can enjoy a fantastic view from the patio or take a walk on a beach. Breakfast was also great, served on a terrace. Staff is very nice and helpful. Such... More

We arrived in the late afternoon/early evening after a good 6.5 hour drive from Cape town, but when you park the car and enter the main guest house through the little white picket fence, you are welcomed by the most beautiful colonial white wooden beach house situated literally above the beach, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore...

With a stunning view, this guest house boasts a fabulous view of Beacon Isle and the surrounding waters. It has a decidedly light and airy cottage feel, with white walls, plenty of windows, gingham fabric, wicker furniture, and the like. Free wifi, friendly staff. All around a lovely place to stay.

This is a lovely guest house, but it is let down by poor service from the owners and confused service from the staff. The owner, a very nice lady called Andrea, greeted us politely, saw us to our room and we scarcely saw her again over three days. The breakfast staff struggled, particularly when there were more than two couples... More
