"Location perfect, host Michael perfect, room Seaside 1 perfect, breakfast perfect. Ibitshi is a great place to spend some time. Great outings on the beach, which you have almost to yourself. Room Seaside 1 is super spacious and very luxurious and gives you the impression you are living on the beach due to the huge windows. Michael is the ideal...

Words can't really describe just how amazing this place is. The location is great - just a few meters from the unspoiled Wilderness beach & a short drive from the lagoon - you couldn't ask for more. The accommodations themselves are beautiful, with every detail thought through. But to top it off - owner & host Michael simply cannot be...

Our friendly and attentive host Michael made our short stay of 3 days really special. The house itself is just a stunner, the rooms are very spacious, well furnished and the view is great.

It was our first visit to Ibitshi, a lovely place to forget the rest of the world. Michael made our stay an unforgettable time in Pasadise - a Paradise with a beautiful view to the Ocean. We are planning to come again in December 2016.

Myself and friends have just spent a wonderful night in Ibitshi being looked after by Michael, one of the friendliest most hospitable hosts you could meet. Nothing was to much trouble and I only wish we could have stayed longer. I had one of the sea facing rooms, it was huge, with an incredibly comfortable bed and so many lovely...

My husband and I stayed at Ibitshi for two nights in February as part of our honeymoon along the garden route. From the photos that we had seen online we were expecting the guest house to be beautiful, but our expectations were far surpassed. The house itself is stunning, gorgeous architecture and décor, with amazing views along the beach in...
