“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Eighteen of us from Helderberg Sunrise Rotary Club stayed at Sandpiper Cottages during Oystercatcher Trail April 2014. We had a brilliant time on the Trail with our guides Willie and Chris.
We had the self catering option but had packed lunches provided as well as dining at their Reception/Leisure Centre. The packed lunches were very good and locally home cooked food in the evening was brilliant with great side dishes. Annemarie and her team could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The cottages we stayed in were very well equipped for our party, all were individual and we would all be happy to return to them.

Room Tip: We would thoroughly recommend the oystercatcher Trail especially if you go with a group of friends...

We stayed at Sandpiper cottages on three nights while doing Oystercatcher trail (slackpacking)
Cottages were well equipped and comfortable. Catering at the Sandpiper Centre was excellent, especially as we were a group containing some serious vegans. They did very well!!

We were there 4 days to do the Oystercatcher trail. The trail was magnificent, so amazing. The Sandpiper Cottages is such a nice place and the people are second to none. It's like visiting family, you just feel so welcome. We will definitely be back one day.

To tell the truth, this was really the best. Such good hospitality, food, people, accommodation - everything was the best. The guides - very good, and not to talk about our nice little lunch boxes that we received each morning for the day's walk. This is really an outing not to miss. If I ever have the opportunity again, I will visit again.

I had the pleasure of meeting Fred Orban at a trade show and he invited myself and a friend to visit his amazing town Boggomsbaai and spend a night in one of his oh so comfy cottages. We had the candles lit and fire going in the evening. In the morning he showed us the rest of his cottages and I can highly recommend his honeymoon suite for a romantic getaway. The beach is just magnificent and I would say this is the town to visit summer or winter it still stays remarkable. Thank you Fred.

We were known as the "Stoned Legg" group (Stan & Carolyn Stone, Bobby & Colleen Legg)
We started our trip in Mossel Bay, spending our first night at "Ana's Place" - wow what beautiful accommodation and the views overlooking the harbour were to die for!! The accommodation and views were so good that we opted for take aways rather than go out to eat!!!
The following morning we were met by our guide "Willie" and walked to the Fynbos Restaurant and gift shop for breakfast before starting our 15km walk from Cape St. Blaize to Dana Bay. The views were spectacular and lunch was enjoyed at Pinnacle Point Golf Estate. We were met at Dana Bay and transported to Boggomsbaai to our accommodation at Sandpiper Cottages, which was our "cottage" accommodation for the next 3 nights. The most wonderful snack platter awaited us on our arrival. We were given the cottage "Gone Fishing" which had 4 bedrooms and a lovely kitchen/lounge dining area as well as bath and showers and seperate toilet. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable.
As we had opted for the "catered option", dinners and breakfasts were at the Sports Centre. The Sports Centre boasted a wide selection of spirits, beers and wines.
The following day we were all given a packed lunch and transported back to DanaBay to continue our walk (+- 12km) back to Boggomsbaai. The walk was along the shore, with unspoilt beaches and nesting Oystercatchers.
The following day we walked from Boggomsbaai all the way to the Gouritz (+- 21 km)
Lunch was served "in style" on the beach in Fransmanshoek.
That evening we were given Oysters and Sparkling wine prize giving.
The breakfasts, lunches and especially the dinners were superb.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
Thanks Fred, Annemarie and the rest of the staff. We will be back!!! For sure..........
