Reviewed August 6, 2013

I stayed with my 2 daughters for 2 nights and loved it. The owners are very friendly and extremely
helpful. The room was great, the lounges comfortable and relaxing and the views fantastic. Breakfast was delicious and we loved the packed lunch that was available - perfect for when you're in the forest or on the beach. It is in a perfect location for Tsitsikamma with short walks possible from the village, along with zip wiring and bike hire. We had great dinners at the local restaurant - Rafters. We wish we'd stayed longer.

We stayed 2 nights in this family run B&B and loved it. The large room was superbly equipped with cable TV, ceiling fan, tea & coffee, plus fresh milk in the fridge, lovely large bed with soft towels, room safe, and large en suite bathroom with the best power shower I have ever had. The location was perfect for tsitsikamma and the surrounding attractions. We really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely return. August is low season so we had the run of the place but the owners could not have been more helpful giving us tips on what to do & see. Thanks again. Dennis & Marion

Loved the rustic charm of this family-run guest house. Enjoyed reading the history of the building and seeing how it has been transformed by the owners into such a lovely and welcoming bed & breakfast. Our room was large, comfortable and well equipped - the walk-in shower was great and we had a lovely view from our balcony. Lovely common areas, breakfast was great. Easy walking distance to local restaurants.

A family-run house, it has been designed with the guests in mind with 2 common rooms for wifi, reading, listening to music, snacking, having a glass of wine. Choosing a room with a balcony was good for us, especially for sitting in the evening. The walk-in shower was the best of our trip. The day we used the pool was a little cool, but we couldn't resist because it was so inviting with comfortable lounge chairs. After riding in a car all day, it was a treat to be able to walk to a number of eating establishments within blocks of our quarters. The owner was not on the grounds when we arrived, but made sure that evening that she apologized when she introduced herself and asked us if our accommodations were to our satisfaction and if there was anything we needed that had not been provided. We were pleased with everything.

At the woods is a very nice guest house with several lovely rooms. A nice swiming pool and every thing is green all around. the Bath Room is lovely, with "walk in" shower and it feels great.
During the days that we were in the guest house, we hardly saw any owner there. We briefly saw the lady managing the place for 1 minute in one of the evenings and there was not practically anyone there to consult wtih.
With that, it a very recommended place to stay due to its nice rooms and location.

Thanks for your nice comments about our guest house.
I am sorry you felt that interaction with us was lacking - the person that you met on your first evening was me, the owner (if you recall I was busy changing a light bulb for other guests at the time), and my father, Bob, served you breakfast on both mornings of your stay . Bob has been a part of our team since we opened 8 years ago, and has a fantastic knowledge of the area. I apologize for not mentioning to you that Marco and I would be away for part of your stay, as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, but my father then stays on the property and is available to answer any questions at the ring of the bell.
Thanks for the recommendation, and for the feedback.
