“You'd never know....”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

By looking at the building as we arrived at The Singing Kettle you would never know what a gem was waiting for you inside. Located above a popular restaurant in Keurboomstrand, this guesthouse is beautifully furnished and equipped with anything you might need. The views are amazing and at night all you hear is the sound of the waves. The restaurant below did not disturb us at all, all we hear d were a few cars departing from the car park behind, but that was it.
Bertha was a lovely host, always on hand if required yet allowing you space to relax and feel comfortable.
Overall we had a great stay here, it was perfect driving distance to Tsikama and all there is to offer there, and we enjoyed sunset dinners each evening on our private balcony! Who could ask for more!

Room Tip: We staying in room 6, situated on the side of the building so not directly above the restaurant. Was...

Perfect! My girlfriend booked this for us as a two day stop over for us to explore Plettenberg and the only bad thing I had to say was WHY didn't we book it for longer. Great view from the balcony, the sunsets are amazing. Enrico's restaurant underneath is fantastic and the beach was beautiful. You need to know that there is live music right under your window but it stopped early ( around 21:00 ) and was only a two man acoustic set playing great tunes. Clean, good value and a great location. I'll be going back some day for sure.

Imagine opening your eyes in the morning and the first thing you see is the Indian Ocean! Isn't that amazing? Yes, ofcourse it is, so GO check in in this guesthouse. The rooms are very nice, clean, spacious and very comfortable (we were there two times). They don't serve breakfast, but there is fruit, yoghurt, milk, juice and coffee as much as you like. Besides, there is this restaurant below. We want to recommend this place, it really is a definite gorgeous guesthouse on a toplocation!!

We have stayed here several times and will return many more. It is a very well run, clean, friendly lodge with gorgeous views of the beach and Robberg. There is a Weber on the main deck so that you can braai if you so wish and the functional kitchenette has everything you need to do that. Muesli, yoghurt, juice, milk and fresh fruit is supplied daily for breakfast giving you flexibility of mealtimes. Enricos Restaurant below is a great alternative for dinner with a sundowner patio overlooking the beach and beyond. Walking directly onto the beach, there are coastal walks both ways to hidden coves and fishing spots. It truly is unbeatable.

I spent 3 weeks at this heavenly B&B during December 2012 and returning to the Singing Kettle for December 2013. You cannot beat this perfect location on the Garden Route. Just a skip and a hop from your bed and you are on the safe, pristine and family friendly Keurbooms Beach. The stylish marine decor, warm welcoming and friendly service, cleanliness, secure parking, homely atmosphere and extra large wooden deck balconies all add to ease your way into total relaxation, harmony, peace and becoming one with nature. The sea-views from your bed, balcony and yes; even the toilet in room # 5 ... are simply breathtaking. The kitchenette is fully stocked and extreme detail has been given to your every comfort. Then there is the popular Enrico's Italian restaurant on the ground floor where you can chill big time and the accent is on fun, food and drink. The newly built 5km walk/run/cycle-way is safe and hugely popular. Who needs a pool when schools of dolphins beg your company ? Nothing is too much trouble for Bertha who will go the extra mile to please your every whim. Whether you are a solo traveler, on honeymoon or a family; the Singing Kettle will not disappoint. I'm hooked for life.

We loved the room and setting of this lodge. Rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable, with gorgeous views of the sea and delicious aromas coming from the restaurant below. It is not completely private being above the restaurant, but the uninterupted sea views make up for it.

Room Tip: All have lovely sea views

Travel Exclusively African arranged our self drive 5 week tour of Western Cape and Singing Kettle is a great example of the brilliant accommodation they organised for us. Approximately 10 minute drive from Plettenberg itself but I felt this was a bonus. We had room 6 which is large end room and could easily accommodate a family with a large comfortable bed and 2 settees that could be made up into beds. There is a small but very adequate kitchen area which is well equipped with everything you could need. The fruit juice and basket of fresh fruit every morning was very welcome. The veranda is large and great to sit out on watching people on the beach, dolphins swimming past and wonderful sunset. So comfortable that we decided one night to pick up Pizza from Enrico's restaurant downstairs and just sit and watch the sun go down from our balcony. We found Plettenberg and surrounding area had plenty to do and the 5 days here absolutely flew past. Would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone and will definitely return. Could very easily spend a 2 week holiday here.
