“So good we went back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I found Masescha in a booklet of places to stay. We called up and spoke to Angie, who offered us a room for R300/night. That was such a good price, we went straight there. When we arrived, we met Ray who was apologetic and said the room had been rented, but they would give us another room for the same price.
The room was wonderful and the view was incredible. Ray and Angie were so helpful in getting us some crockery and a microwave, and gave us a lot of advice about what to see and where to go.

The grounds are amazing, and we saw lots of birds. Tucking trousers in is advised, as there are a lot of ticks around.

We really enjoyed our stay and decided to stay there again on our way back along the Garden Route. Angie and Ray are perfect hosts and we will definitely return if we ever get back to South Africa.

Many thanks to Angie and Ray for all of the chat and help!

Room Tip: Just tell the hosts what you are after, and they'll find something to suit.

Masescha Country Estate is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. It is located just of the N2 between Plett and Knysna so ideal for exploring the Garden Route. The room was lovely and comfortable and had a deck to sit out on, it was lovely to sit and listen to all the amazing birds.
Ray and Angie are great hosts, and made me feel welcome the moment i arrived. Make sure you book for breakfast as Angie does an amazing cooked breakfast.
I will certainly return when i go back to South Africa.

Mascesha's location is superb, within the buzzing Plettenberg Bay yet so peaceful and relaxing.
A beatiful setting whether with spouse or with children. Ray and Angie's warmth and care demostrate the spirit of ubuntu (humanity), we felt welcome and really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect getaway for those school holidays (family time with no distractions)
.

Room Tip: Sunbird is suitable for a family with two kids (not older than 10 years).

We had such a splendid time at Masescha... the property is breathtaking and the facilities beyond adequate. Our hosts, Ray and Angie, added that personal touch to our stay and went out of their way to cater to our needs. The breakfast is a definite must, and if you have good weather the Estate is situated in close proximity to a number of tourist hot spots. We would definitely return... it is simply idyllic for two lovers escaping the bustle of the city.

Room Tip: We stayed in a catered room, which was perfect for us. But if you are looking to cook, then you shou...

We really enjoyed our stay with so much to do in the surrounding area , yet returning after a busy day to the peace and tranquillity of Masescha to chill out and relax .It was so friendly even the dog Jasper only wanted his tummy tickling all the time and in the morning a Mallard duck kept arriving for breakfast!.Our unit waswell equipped and very clean while the breakfast was very varied including some of Angies home made muffins and jams.A lovely pleasant stay.

This is one the nicest places we stayed in while in South Africa! The room was up to par with midrange hotels. The owners are more than friendly, location excellent (very near Plett Bay and Knysna), and the estate overall is beautiful. There are presumably a lot of nice places to stay at the Garden Route that are a great value for money, and this is definitely one of those places.

Masescha Country Estate is a great place to relax just off the busy N2 road on the Garden Route yet completely quiet and with great dark skies to star gaze. There are many places to visit nearby and Angie and Ray will be only too glad to help. We booked for dinner, bed and breakfast and had a really great evening meal provided by Angie and her son Joshua. Our accomodation, Sunbird Cottage was very comfortable with kitchenette and separate bedroom. Satellite TV was also provided with a good choice of channels, something that was missing from most of the other places we stayed in SA. We only wished we could have stayed there longer and had time to enjoy a really nice place with friendly company. The next time we are back in SA we will definitely stop here.
