During a trip through South-Africa, we have stayed two nights in a spacious two bedroom two bathroom cottage at Coral Tree. It was the second time we have used this accommodation. The first time was in October 2004. We were received by Shirley and Gary Redman in a friendly style. The cottage was very spacious and had a private pool. Breakfast is optional at an extra charge. Entrance to Adventure Land was included in the rate. Coral Tree Cottages is situated between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna and is an excellent base to explore the surrounding area, Tsjitjikama Park included. There are no restaurants or pubs within walking distance and you have to take the car when you go out for dinner, but that wasn't a problem for us. Plettenberg Bay is within driving distance and has many facilities. Shirley and Gary did everything to make us welcome during our stay. It is clearly a family business and their three children (14, 8 and 5) seem to be very used to sharing the grounds with guests as well as the three dogs running around cheerfully. Many kids in South-Africa would be very pleased to grow up in such a beautiful area and wonderful climate. It will be another couple of years before I go back to South-Africa, because there are so many more countries to visit. But when, I return, Coral Tree is definitely worth a third visit. And after a conversation with Shirley, I am very interested whether the Redman's will still be running the place in a couple of years. Running a place like that is hard work, even when the kids grow up and get more involved in the business. But Shirley and Gary are doing a good job there.
