“Just wonderful”
Reviewed August 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Difficult to know where to start really. Maybe with the three (minor) bad things. A: No orange juice squeezer; B: corkscrew was broken; C: plates were stacked so high it was a challenge to stop them falling out of the cupboards.
Er... that's it.
Everything else was just awesome. This is just the most lovely house, directly overlooking the sea. Whales came past two a penny, breaching away almost to order, and every morning and evening we were treated to dolphins mucking around in the breakers.
The place is immaculately clean, and immaculately cleaned by the attentive staff. You can take your pick of three separate fire based cooking locations, and my son and I rekindled our caveman relationship with meat.
Very comfortable beds, and we didn't even use the upstairs apartment.
The house is owned by a part-English family, so there were some odd pictures of Glenn Hoddle (you had to be a Spurs fan no doubt); Martin Johnson (not great if you're Irish) and Judas Owen (not great if you are Scouse) all saved by the cricket honorifics to Botham, Flintoff and various others (put Eoin Morgan up as well!)

Seriously this is one of the most wonderful places we have ever stayed in. So restful. Glorious pool. Amazingly well situated to enjoy PE without actually being in it. Would go back in a heartbeat. And all this in the middle of winter!! Lord knows what it's like in summer.

Thank you so much.

“Brilliant location”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Tanya and her entourage of staff was utterly amazing! I can't fault anything! I would definitely come again to summerstrand! Every morning we were blessed to see dolphins! There were lots of things to do with the kids! There were board games and swimming parafinalia. The house was well stocked up with spices and such! I would highly recommend this place!

“Lovely house with stunning views and first class service”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Waterhouse. Tanya was very responsive answering all of our questions and we found every little detail was taken care of. The house was very well furnished with all kitchen appliances 2 big fridges ideal for a group. The pool was heated and sparkling clean. The house is right on the ocean so the views from all of the rooms, pool and firepit are stunning and we saw dolphins and whales daily. The staff were friendly and daily maid service and pool cleaning was well received. We will definitely come back and stay again. The house is really great value for money.

“Spectacular views from a beautiful villa.”

From the moment of our arrival Tanya welcomed us and was incredibly helpful all through our stay. The house and facilities were perfect, and the views were spectacular. An added bonus was watching the dolphins swim past every day. Could not rate this villa highly enough and will definitely be returning! Thanks Tanya for making our trip perfect.

Large property with an amazing view. Selected for its closeness to Addo and the game reserves

Area safe
Property is large with many bedrooms overlooking the ocean.
