We booked in on our way to cape town for easter and were so impressed that we booked in again on our return trip the following week. What a wonderful set up - clean, neat rooms with beautiful views and a fabulous breakfast in the warm sunny breakfast room.
We had our 6 year old with us and she stayed and ate breakfast free which was such a bonus!
The rooms were so beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need - including a packet of biscuits with the tea and coffee service and sweets and easter eggs for our daughter!

It was particularly wonderful after a tiring 6 hours on the road to have a glass of complimentary sherry in the room. What thoughtful hosts to even leave a couple of headache tablets and other emergency remedies in the room including a sewing kit.
Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a home away from home. We will be back!

Very comfortable, spacious rooms including bathroom with bath. Exceptionally clean with lots of attention to detail. Lovely outlook over garden and swimming pool. Welcoming team who were very informative and went out of their way to help. Great breakfast.

I stayed overnight in what the owners did not consider their "best room - no garden view", as the rest of the rooms were taken. It was a small room, but with many extras, including full tea tray, fridge, biscuits, sherry, mosquito machine,umbrella, beach towels, TV etc. Very clean and comfortable. Styling is more conservative, i.e. not modern, but the owner, I can see takes a personal interest in every room as she showed me all the items in, case I missed them. I slept well, but in the early morning there was a bit of movement above the room above. I suppose that is why I paid ZAR 395 for the room instead of the usual ZAR 500. I walked to the lagoon, but at high tide you are a bit cut off from the main beach. I suggest a 2 min. drive to the main beaches. Good setting close to amenities. The dining room had two retired couples who were repeat guests from the Netherlands. This tells me that the service is consistent. The breakfast was lovely, with fresh baked muffins, continental style and English style menu available and lovely friendly kitchen staff. This B&B will be around for a long time as they take personal care with their clients. I tried to get a repeat stay on my way back from Cape Town, but they were fully booked again ... need I say more.

Room Tip: The garden facing rooms onto the pool area looked very nice.

From the moment we arrived till we left 4 days later we could not have asked for better: we booked 2 rooms and they were beside each other and only a few steps to the very clean pool. The rooms were very clean, wonderful small touches which included a small first aid kit,sewing kit and each room had a fridge, microwave and plenty of glasses for the wonderful SA wine. The breakfasts were excellent and plentiful. Our host Gee was was very friendly, informative and willing to advise of places to visit, he even encouraged our 80yr mum to take a swim in the Indian Ocean :) which she enjoyed.

The team welcomed us and we were really happy to stay there. It's a lovely B&B. From the nice breakfast, to the attention to detail in the rooms, to the saltwater pool, I cannot complain. The whole place has a very "welcoming" feel to it and you feel settled very soon. Well done to the team, please keep up the great work. I'll be back!

Room Tip: Ask for the top room. It's nice up there.

The place has great rooms in the second floor with some view to the ocean and mostly to the back yard and the pool. Nights are 600-650 rand per room. Rooms are clean and nice and there is even some candies and shery for the coming guests.
