Placid Waters Timeshare resort pleasantly surprised us! The one bedroom unit (16) was comfortably furnished and equipped and offered beautiful views of the lake and the hundreds of birds which call it home. We had a large balcony where we could have meals and use the gas Weber. We were really impressed by the way the resort was managed - everything neat and tidy and a really good pool area considering the small size of the resort. They also offer a much better than usual TV bundle and free WiFi.

I can find no fault with this lovely place overlooking the estuary. The fittings in the units are of a quality not usually found in a time share resort . The staff we have encountered have all been friendly and helpful. A well equipped supermarket and bottle store are within easy walking distance as are several food outlets. We stopped here for a weekend en route from KZN to Cape Town and are very pleased that we did. Sedgefield is known a a slow town, very quiet and peaceful and an ideal place to come and relax and it has lived up to that reputation.

Have to say that the unit look well overhauled and looked modern, friendly staff at reception and also the cleaning staff, nice and central to everything and towns around you. Some not so nice things: You only receive a limited amount of WIFI in today's modern life surly the resort can offer unlimited WIFI to their guest, YOU have to pay R 5 per day to use the gas to braai (BBQ) on their WEBER gas braai, this is not stated on their page or their booklet, surly we are paying our subs every year should be free.bin's lid were gone, extractor fans from plastic cover broken off, can opener does not work properly, shower had a leak, bulbs not working and not replaced. Overall a good stay.
