“A fab stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Our hosts were warm and welcoming and so accommodating! Very comfortable beds with well furnished and equally comfortable serviced cottages. Beautiful peaceful surrounds; all in all - I'll be going back!

Excellent service, great position and superb accommodation make for an all round great stay. We particularly enjoyed the great food served up by Brian, although we probably ate too much. Any advice or recommendations we needed we welcomed with a smile and prompt response. The cottage was very peaceful for us as a family, it felt really quite private. Note the wifi access is not available at the cottages, really good for some to help get away from things. Fynbos Ridge is well positioned just a few kms outside Plettenberg Bay. Thanks for a great stay.

Thank you for the lovely review! We appreciate it. We are planning to extend the WiFi coverage (it is only the cottages that are currently out of range), so within a short while the boosters should allow access to the internet from all our units. (Not sure if this is a good or bad thing if you want to get away from it all). Hope that 2014 is a good year for you!

We stayed in one of the self catering cottages with our little daughter for three nights. The view from our veranda has been beautiful and we loved that we could do our own braai. The kitchen is well equiped with everything you need for cooking and we loved the open fireplace in the living room for cosy nights. Breakfast is delicious and we loved the cooked dinner Brian was doing for us on our last evening. We would love to come back in the future!

Very comfortable cottage with great views and peaceful outlook but still close to Plattenburg. After 2 weeks travelling it was a good chance to have some quiet private time.
A warm welcome, good restaurants booked for us by our hosts and great breakfasts.

Stayed in one of the cottages recently in October and found it so relaxing. Beautiful surrounds and cottages so well equipped and tidy. A haven for those moments when you just need to be close to nature but still enjoy all modern amenities. Wish I could have stayed for longer but will definitely do sometime in future. Brian, Liz and Mel made sure that we felt extremely welcome and at home. Everybody so friendly and accommodating. Have to go back! Marianne Strydom

A superb place to stay just outside of Plettenburg Bay, but close enough to enjoy all that was great. Our cottage was wonderful with every facility required to make it an ideal place to stay.
Our thanks to Liz, Brian and Mel
