We stayed for two nights at Serendipity during late September, which stay turned into one of the highlights of our travels in the entire Garden Route. While we came in on the spur of the moment, we were taken care of exceptionally well, and given the most gracious and respectful treatment. The reasonable prices requested for our stay at this season - prior to the high season - made our stay a real value for money. But there is more. We found our rooms, and the entire Guest House, the most well appointed rooms we had anywhere in all of S. Africa. Our children, who had their own room, were treated like the mature young people that they, at times like this, can be. We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely restaurant, which went to considerable lengths to split a meal portion between our kids, and made sure to cater to our special dietary requests. The owners were very attentive, and gave us considerable advice about the remainder of our itinerary for the remainder of the week, even taking the time to make calls for us to obtain reservations for the next few days. The owners spent time with us in conversations that made our stay personal and meaningful. Our breakfasts, personally prepared by our hostess, were a work of art - each plate set as though we were serious restaurant critics. Our hostess really knows hospitality, and found the right balance between the correct amount of personal attention and service, while also affording us a needed measure of privacy and family time. We planned to stay only one night, but just did not want to leave.
