We came upon this delightful spot as we arrived in Plettenberg Bay, and were immediately entranced by everything about it. The hosts, Al and Clo were warm, most welcoming wanted to do everything to make our stay memorable. We stayed a further two nights on the strength of this, and as a result, this was the highlight of our return from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town.
We had the larger of the two rooms, which was exquisitely furnished with Clo's delicate pieces and Al's hospitable inclusion of a cut-glass decanter charged with Marsalla - or something very similar!
Their breakfasts, here again, were superb; Clo's beautifully-presented food couldn't fail to get us off to a great start and we were able to spend as much time at table as we wanted, just watching the humming birds sip Al's sugar nectar whilst others of colourful plumage and song took advantage of Al's nuts or food put out just for them.
We all found areas we had in common, and thoroughly enjoyed chatting about everything and nothing, and reporting on the meals we had enjoyed the evenings before and which the pair had recommended. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we will remember them with great fondness and feel proud that we were the ones who taught Al to cuddle for the "goodbye" photograph.
