Stone Cottage
Ranked #39 of 82 Plettenberg Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Stone Cottage was a surprise find. We had not planned to stay over in Plettenberg Bay but had to make last minute adjustments to our itinerary. Annie and Felix were absolutely amazing and assisted us. Big bonus: we often travel with our beautiful dog and he was allowed to stay with us.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and well equipped. Annie is a very gifted artist and her style and beauty is visible throughout the Stone Cottage and the outside areas. We stayed in the absolutely gorgeous 'honeymoon' suite with panoramic views of the bay and a bug balcony from where you can enjoy cocktails, breakfast, whatever.

This is a green listing too - there's recycling and green initiatives.

Stone Cottage is an outstanding little place with nice owners, very different to all the fancy palaces of Plettenberg's millionaires around it. We even extended our stay and would definitely go there again. If you like it vintage with a touch of art, that's your place.

The pictures were alluring we got there and it was breath taking! the farmhouse, eco-friendly look made it so cozy it was happiness in one place. I loved the dog very random but even Pietie brought joy.. The Hilda suite was very private we loved every minute we spent there and the Jacuzzi really was a bonus. We cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Hilda Suite is very Private. If your going for the sea view Boetie Pierre is the room for you.

What a cute and cosy place. We recently stayed here for 1 night in the Hilda and Leonard suite and really enjoyed it.

This is not your usual backpackers, especially if you want to party. This is a place to chill out, relax and enjoy what Plett has to offer. The interior around the cottage is gorgeous shabby chic which follows through the rooms. They have free wifi facilities and also in our rooms got a mini breakfast. For example nice rusk type biscuits with muesli and milk. I'm not sure if this is in any of the other rooms or not.

I would highly recommend this place and if you go our for dinner, head to the food market. It's open most nights and you have a choice of really yummy food to try,

Thanks for a great stay :-)

Rustic & quiet, singing birds, outdoor jacuzzi on wooden deck, fire pits, friendly Malawian staff, clean stylishly decorated private room leading onto wooden balcony. Perfect for time out.
Will be back for sure, sooner than later - extending my stay as I type xxx

Incredible location which is close enough to both the town and the beach to walk. The staff are very attentive but also leave you be to enjoy your time there. The Pierre Boetie suite in particular is amazing with great views of Central Beach. We would highly recommend a stay at Stone Cottage and will most definitely return.
