Definitely catering to the discerning international traveller this B&S is very conveniently located. Excellent freshly cooked breakfasts in addition to a healthy buffet. Rooms are clean and well equipped (for a seaside B&B). The owners are friendly, well travelled and take great pride in their little bit of ocean island feel on the South African coast. Easy walk to the...

We spent 2 nights at Sandals and were taken with the quirky nature of the rooms - plenty of room with balcony/terrace and outside enclosed showers. The service was excellent and we were really impressed with their offer to find us places to eat at a particularly busy time of year in the area. We had done quite a bit...

Wonderful review and we do appreciate the feedback. Dec/Jan always a very busy time and we want our guests to appreciate and enjoy the various local dining establishments so we do make provisional bookings for all our guests long before the "rush". To "chill" by the pool in the late afternoons in the privacy of the peaceful garden, glass wine...

This guest house is very quietly located with a nice garden. You feel secure and welcomed, the outdoor shower is a nice add-on. The staff is charming and a good full English breakfast is included as well.

We stayed here on our last night in South Africa. The thatched guesthouse is looking a bit tired now. The breakfast is nice and the pool and garden very nice and secluded. Unfortunately St Francis Bay itself was disappointing and appeared "closed". Area may be good for hikers but the beaches were very small especially the one near this guesthouse...

We loved the place and the host. We were family of five. Great breakfast and general hospitality. Got all the help we needed heading Tsitsikamma. Unfortunately winds didn't allow us to use the pool and the great garden but it looks very inviting.

When our travel agent booked a 'Guest House' I immediately thought of the typical B & B found at most UK sae side resorts. How wrong can you be? Sandals is a lovely thatched building with additional accommodation across the lawn. We had two rooms, one very large with sofa, shower and separate bath. the other was smaller but still...

Good service in well appointed room. The staff are pleasant and friendly. The dinning area over looks the swimming pools. Our room had a private garden, a nice touch. The en-suite bath room has a shower and bath, nice for the wife and I.

Only stayed one night on our way to Addo. Wish we had stayed longer. Our room was wonderful and we had so much space. We loved the outdoor shower and patio area. Breakfast was very good and I loved the pancakes. Couldn't fault a single thing and highly rrecommend this guest house.
