“What a house! And what a view!”
Reviewed April 7, 2009

La Vista is a great place to stay in Plett. The owner is the perfect host, keen to provide the most excellent servive, the rooms are large and superbly furnished with large beds, bathrooms and minibars! One of the main selling points is the view over the bay. Stunning! The breakfast is on the terrace (with the view) and is excellent. And finally the small bar (where you can play barman if you so want) is well stocked. The two little dogs are great two. Location is good for heading into town or to the beach.

Friendly warm welcome. Massive suite with large balcony and amazing view.

Bright large breakfast area with balcony for those warmer mornings. Food was good.

3 mins drive to main town / beaches. Bit too far to walk.

Our party of six stayed with Michelle and team in January and had a fantastic time. The views, accommodation, Food and hospitality were fantastic. Plettenberg Bay is an outstanding area of natural beauty and one of the loveliest places in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and the La Vista only enhances anyones visit to the area. Bottoms up Michelle. Pete and the Gang, Coventry, England.

After two long weeks travelling throughout South Africa we felt blessed to find La Vista. It truely was a home away from home.

A big thank you to Michelle and her staff. After only one night I felt like I had known you a lifetime. Our only regret was leaving for Jeffery's Bay which was a big disappointment.

We spent two nights at La Vista in January 2008. It has great views, being high above the town but this does make it quite a long walk down to the restaurants ( we loved The Bistro on the Bay, on the corner of Church Street and Main Street), though you can take a taxi, of course. We did not like the style of breakfast, however, which was buffet style even for hot food (meaning therefore that it was not always hot). Hot drinks were also pour yourself style from vacuum flasks. This was not our idea of four star service. At our previous B & B, Gordons Beach Lodge in Gordons Bay, everything was freshly cooked and delicious.

Hello. You must have been with the UK group if you stated that the hot breakfast was served buffet style.....as that is the ONLY time we serve the Hot English breakfast as so......I most humbly apologize if you received a cool breakfast....Not usually so......I would have only been to happy to accommodate you if you would have stated that the breakfast was not to your liking.....It is now difficult to answer to this assessment ....... I apologize and hope that this will not inhibit your return to La VIsta Lodge ....
With Kind regards
