“On top of the world”
Reviewed February 4, 2009

On our three week trip by car along the Garden Route we stayed in Plettenberg in the Bosavern. What a great experience. We have toured many places on this world and must have stayed in over 100 hotels and guesthouses. Bosavern clearly is in the top ten for us. Definately first price in South Africa. For all visitors to Plettenberg: stay in Bosavern, you will not regret it!

A beautiful, elegantly furnished guesthouse with a magnificent view and personal service. A family of three, we stayed two nights and enjoyed every minute. Our rooms overlooked the pool, the beds were comfortable and our hosts were eager to give us information on sights and things to do in the area as well as help us with reservations at restaurants etc.

we stayed 3 nights at Bosavern. Vivienne & Gerald were perfect hosts. Our room was lovely & we especially liked looking down over Plettenberg Bay from the pool deck. The guest house is about 10 minutes walk from town, an easy stroll during the day, we took taxi's at night which Vivienne & Gerald helped arrange. This worked really well, they also helped us choose where to eat each night. There is plenty to do in the area & I highly recommend a few days at Bosavern (great bread at breakfast too!)

We spent three nights at the Bosavern Guest House; from the moment we arrived to the time we left we felt we were in a top star hotel. Our room was spotlessly clean and attention to detail was unsurpassed throughout our stay in South Africa. The owners Gerald and Viv could not have been more helpful, suggestions for local restaurants (The Med and Ngana were both
excellent), and places to visit (Robberg Penisular and a boat trip up the Keurbooms River) were taken up and enjoyed. When we returned after a day out we were greeted with a warm welcome home and the offer of tea, coffee or something stronger. This is one place where the website does not lie, the views are stunning and the rooms are fantastic. It is the only place to stay
when visiting Plettenberg Bay.

This was one of the most beautiful places we've stayed in South Africa. The house is very clean, modern and has a beautiful view over the Plettenberg Bay. Our room was very nice, big, comfortable and direct acces to the pool. There are some nice restaurants on walking distance (The Med!) and host Gerald gives a lot of tips and information about activities. We certainly recommend this place to all Plett-visitors!

We have just spent 3 nights at this beautiful guest house overlooking Plettenberg Bay in South Africa. Our experience was made all the more memorable by our delightful hosts, Vivien and Gerald, both of whom were knowledgeable and helpful about their country and their local area. A delicious breakfast was served in a room with floor to ceiling windows, from which one could view the pool and then the beaches and bay beyond. All in all it was a wonderful experience!
