We stayed 3 nights at the cottage on the hill in Saint Francis Bay. We felt right at home. Anne and Rob are great hosts and delivered wonderful breakfasts prepared with great care. We were lucky finding that place. The room was large and clean.

We couldn't have started our journey in a more pleasurable place. St Francis Bay itself is beautiful and perhaps underrated - while the consistent architecture of white buildings and thatched rooftops gives the location a distinct village appeal. The luxury rooms at The Cottage are fantastic - nice spaces and lovely attention to detail by the owners. Bed is super comfortable. The hosts are friendly, cheerful and helpful - and prepare a super breakfast. Nearby seafood restaurant has the best sushi we've had, and we've been comparing all other meals to it since! Highly recommended.

This B&B is in the lovely beach town of St Francis Bay with sandy beaches and a great coastal path starting just near the cottage. It's a great place to stay we had our own lovely cottage, clean and well equipped for self-catering and friendly kind hosts. The breakfast was the best we had in South Africa, fantastic smoked salmon and scrambled egg!
