“Stunning and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Our family stayed here for two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. It's such a beautiful place and our cottage was amazing. The owners were very welcoming and the staff was also very friendly. Breakfast was delicious and the location is also just perfect, very close to both Knysna and Plett. I wouldn't hesitate to go back!

What a stunning place. So close to the action in both Plettenberg and Kysna and yet so tranquil and peaceful. Our cottage was perfect for our family (2 adults and 2 children) with 2 good sized bedrooms and each with own bathroom. In between was a large lounge and well equipped kitchen. To the rear was a lovely terrace to relax, have a BBQ and take in the stunning view over the forest valley. The marked walks were great as was the pool and if you like animals there are plenty around to admire ( both wild and domestic!). And to cap it all, our hosts were tremendous serving great breakfasts and making us feel at home. And if you ask nicely Brian is a superb cook and serves great evening meals and we even had our roast lamb and trimmings brought to our cottage

....we could have stayed longer. Great location, great rooms, fanastic views, really, really beautiful place. Ideally located for Plet and Knysna, pool a bit small, but superb location for sundowners. Absolutely recommed it.

It was only by chance that we found this place (flight from PE to CT was cancelled so we had to drive it ) and all I can say is that this is beautiful - tucked away just outside Plett on a nature reserve - peace, tranquility and a top notch stay from us - just a pity we couldn't stay longer but we'll be back for our trip along the garden route

What a wonderful setting, and wonderful friendly, humane, first rate service. We only stayed 1 night, but I can see why people stay a full week or longer. Away from Plett's busier pace, but only 10 minutes drive if you want the big town. Pool with (great) view, huge rooms, eye for detail, gorgeous aesthetic in every room, world class indigenous gardens, talking-point pet pig, best breakfast we've had in many years of travel on SA's roads.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a tour round SA. Our cottage was just gorgeous, with every last detail though through carefully to make sure you have the most pleasant stay. The dinig here in the evening was excellent, with an honesty bar making you feel like you were really at home. The setting is positively bucolic, with gorgeous plantings and water features. The swimming pool is tucked away in a hidden niche and was a great place to cool down and watch the birds skimming overhead. This was real luxury but without any snob ones or pretension, just good, friendly, quality service.

We are a family with 2 little boys (2 & 4) and we were very happy with the cottage. The rooms are very nice, big and everything is very clean! Nice area and lovely pool. Very friendly owner and staff!
