“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had a enjoyable stay at the establishment. Friendly service; clean and comfortable room; excellent breakfast. The view from the terrace is beautiful.
Close to the beach and centre of town. Quiet suburb

Although the room was on the small size, it was outfitted with everything we could need and we had a great nights sleep. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We were close to amenities and had a lovely view of the bay from our room. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we weren't able to enjoy the balcony, but it was a nice feature to have.

Thanda Vista has not only nice bedrooms with good bathrooms, but also a homely lounge with comfortable seats, boodshelves and TV.
A good breakfast is served in the breakfast room, which has wonderful views over the countryside and the bay.

I stayed in Thanda Vista with my family in September 2013. We have been regular visitors of this area (we live in Cape Town) and have always had different accommodation. I can honestly say that Thanda Vista is the Best place to stay in Plett!

We had a golfing trip with friends and stayed at Thanda Vista for 2 nights in order to play at Goose Valley. The guest house was very well situated with beautiful views. The rooms were very good, the service excellent, the food very well presented and most of all the hospitality was great. We would certainly stay there again.

When we booked this from UK it is always difficult when you know nothing about the place. We hit the jackpot, the whole experience was just wonderful, the owners, helpful and nice, we would recommend this B & B as a must!

We really enjoyed our time. Having a sea view room with balcony it was wonderful to enjoy a glass of wine between our day trips and going out for dinner.

We got lots of great ideas for trips and activities and excellent dinner suggestions and reservations.

If back to Plettenberg Bay we would stay in Thanda Vista again. No doubt.
