Abalone Beach House combines the relaxed atmosphere of a backpacker with higher standard and style. The rooms are clean and spacious, the upstairs floor with kitchen and lounge is well fournished and cosy, the sun deck is huge and facing west to enjoy both the sunset and braai. The kitchen is well equipped and really clean, in fact the hosts use it, as well. Grant and Elbi live on the first floor and are around whenever you need any information or just like to chat. The beach is literally round the corner and a pool is available, too. The presmises are in a safe area, parking in front of the house is available. As a consequence of the lovely surroundings, though, the house lies outside of Plettenberg Bay meaning that you definitely need a car to get here.
We liked it here a lot and would definitely recommend to stay here when in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Abalone Beach House is only 50 meters from Keurbooms beach, the best whale and dolphin watching beach on the Garden Route, in a private access controlled estate just ten minutes from the centre of Plettenberg Bay. If you need a break from the usual noisy, overcrowded backpacker scene then this Beach House is the perfect indulgent getaway. Kick back on the sun deck and marvel at the spectacular 360 degree views. With just four 'luxury' rooms at backpacker rates Abalone is a small boutique lodge with an intimate feel where you won't need to blow your budget to enjoy a little comfort. There are loads of things to do in the area as the location offers the option of a quiet relaxing retreat, an action packed adrenalin adventure, a real African safari experience or a combination of all three. ... more less
