Surrounded by the beauty of the crags you will find immediat peace. Not only by the nature, but certainly by the fantastic architecture and the passion of the owners. The staff too has the virus to make your stay an unforgettabel one. Perfection or close to it. Go and stay for a fiew nights, we realy regretted we had to leave. You can choose this place to see a lot of the garden route. Thanks to Owen, Hastings and the ladies.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Our stay at Tamodi was truly memorable. Our hosts went out of their way to ensure that we had an excellent stay. The breakfasts we were served were among the best of our trip; they kept us full until dinner!

We did not have the best weather when we stayed at Tamodi, yet we loved every minute of our stay. The views and the rooms were exceptional. In hot weather, lounging by the pool would have been incredible. I think it is the most beautiful pool I have ever seen.

My husband and I like good wine, and the cellar at Tamodi was heaven. The Pinot noir we tried, with the chocolate notes, was amazing, and very reasonably priced. If we had stayed longer (perhaps next time we will), I will make a point of sampling more!

Highly recommended!

We found this gem on the internet and am pleased to say it is even better than the pictures online. Owen (the owner) was there to greet us on arrival and what a magnificent property he has created, the attention to detail was superb and our every need was meticulously carried out. The wine cellar a favourite with the ‘boys’. The staff were happy and professional. The only bad comment is that we had to leave, two nights wasn’t enough to enjoy this outstanding property.

Room Tip: All rooms spectacular

What a stunning place. Its tucked down a gravel path and you should be prepared to drive to and from town but its worth it. The rooms, the views, the staff...all amazing. You can see the love thats gone in to building this place. The finish and the decor is spot on!

We stayed for three nights in the honeymoon suite but wish we could have stayed for longer. Sitting out on our terrace at night was an experience, being from London, we've never seen stars like it! And I dont think I've ever eaten breakfast over such fantastic views!

Owen has got this place absolutely right in every way!

Our first visit to Tamodi this year and the whole experience was fantastic.The property is beautiful, carefully designed and built, with stunning views and very peaceful
Owen is a brilliant host, and the rooms he has created are stunning. His wine cellar is worth a trip on its own! and his breakfast lovely!
We visited the Cheetah lodge and Elephants nearby , so there is plenty to do away from the beach!
This is highly recommended, hard to beat, impossible to fault

Room Tip: dont worry, all fab

It would be difficult to find a better place to stay than Tamodi Lodge. It is located in a most beautiful scenic setting and is very tranquil. The owners cater for every need and all the staff are very friendly and offer excellent service. Great breakfasts too. Highly recommended

Room Tip: All rooms seem to offer equal facilities

We kicked off our honeymoon with 2 nights at Tamodi Lodge and it was absolutely divine! Starting off with a glass of wine, a quick tour of our room and the facilities, and absolute bliss for the remainder of the stay. The quietness is so overwhelming and soothing, a MUST after months of wedding planning or simply for extreme relaxation! Simply exceptional all round!

Room Tip: Any room is a great room! :)
