We loved staying at Dune Ridge! The service is first class and their attention to detail is amazing - they go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and at home. We stayed in a garden cottage. It was big and spacious and the bathroom had underfloor heating. We loved our time there!

Definitely one of the best stays during our honeymoon. A tranquil, farm environment, we were able to relax completely. All the staff went out of their way to help. The food was great, most amazing platters and a outstanding breakfast

Great service, good food and attention to detail. Exceeded all expectation. Underfloor heating in the bathroom along with a fireplace was fantastic. Lovely, peaceful venue, very clean and well maintained. Friendly staff went out of the way to assist and make the stay extra special.

After we had some difficulties to find the place during the hours of darkness late in the evening and after a long day of driving, we felt like having ended up in the middle of nowhere.

Sarah and her team run a superb establishment. I love the attention to detail, fresh flowers in the room, beds turned down if you pop out, hot water bottle in the bed! My favorite breakfast - fresh, healthy and topped with herbs. I just love it at Dune Ridge, being in the bush and always come away feeling like I... More

Sarah provided an amazing service during our trip! Lovely place, very very tidy, excellent food (breakfast and diner), cosy rooms and beautiful panorama 10/10 for our first trip to cape st francis. Sarah also explained the history of cape st francis, places where to rent surf boards and having good diner in town.
