“Home from home with a sea view at your door”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Beautiful accommodation with amazing views. On a good day you can sit and watch the dolphins swim past. Robyn and the dogs are welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Close to PE but far enough away to feel secluded. A good location all round.

Room Tip: The cottage for 4 people or the oyster room for 2 people

We have stayed at Sea notes various times over the last years and always look forward to coming back. It is a great location by the sea (sip your coffee in bed and watch out for the dolphins in the waves),with a comfortable and cosy cottage that makes you feel at home and a very hospitable host. Robyn was always there to help when we had a question. In short - we came as clients and left as friends to return again.
So, if you are lookior to offer us various servicesng for a relaxed place to switch off and unwind, look nor further.

I returned to Seanotes in january 2013, as I had wonderful memories from by previous visit. Everything I recalled was exceeded, by the great welcome and hospitality which Robyn exudes. She was so helpful in suggesting areas of interest in the region.I loved the Oyster room, where I had stayed previously, and the stress free time sitting on the deck. It was such a delight to see the dolphins swim by in their natural world. I have recommended this accommodation to my friends. Thanks Robyn and her lovely welcoming dogs. Lucy Dublin, Ireland

We have been twice to this wonderful little cottage and both times have been absolutely wonderful. The host, Ms Evans, is very friendly and helpful and the place is nice, cosy and very clean. The first time we visited was in 2007. We longed to go back and this was made possible in March 2013. This time we took an extra long trip by car from Johannesburg to be able to spend days at Sea Notes!
We sat on the terrass watching the dolphins diving through the huge waves close to the shore and the whales blowing further out on the sea.
We walked down to the natural pools and swam, well protected from the waves in the warm water. Lovely!
In the evening we enjoyed a great barbecue.
We have already decided to come back 2014 to our favourite place to stay. Plans are weaved at this very moment.
Birgitta and Ove from Sweden

Room Tip: If you want to have a bit of space and a nice terrass, then you should rent the cottage.

As a newly married couple we wanted a weekend away, somewhere where our dogs would be welcome and close to the sea. Sea Notes offered that and MORE. The room and view were out of this world and our dogs enjoyed being on the beach so much. The friendly and accommodating service we received from Robyn, the owner, was amazing and so welcoming!! Nothing was too much trouble. This is definately a home away from home and we look forward to many more visits to Sea Notes. Thanks Robyn for an outstanding and very memorable weekend!! :-) Jaco, Tracy and our girls

We have visited Sea Notes twice in the past 8 months, latest over Christmas 2013 for 10 days. Stayed in "Oyster" then in "Seaweed". What an amazing spot - the host, Robyn is the most accommodating person we have ever come across. Always willing to go the extra mile to make our stay extra special. A more friendly atmosphere would be difficult to find. We will certainly be back. Highly recommended. Pete & Caroline.
