“Love this place!”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

This is a fantastic place to stay! My husband and I traveled last December (2011) with our 2 teenage girls. The girls had the Garden suite and we had the mini suite. There was a full kitchen in the girls room that was fully equipped. Clean and comfortable all around. There was also internet access at no additional charge, something that is not the case in most of the places we stayed on our SA visit. Fabulous help and service from the managers.Parking is tight but that's not surprising considering the fantastic location for this property right on the beach. We walked just down the road to the Beejuice cafe- you've got to go there if you stay here. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!

Thank you Rita for your hospitality, and making us feel so incredibly welcome. Haus Am Strand is right on the beach, very professional and friendly atmosphere. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. I was surprised that it was so well priced for the location. It can easily compete with all the best holiday places on the planet, in terms of setting and view. Its right in the middle of the Garden Route, and a 5 minute walk to town. It was safe, beautiful, makes you want to stay forever. If you were wondering if you should go there, well, we were absolutely blown away. Being a world traveler, I can say this with all of my heart. Once again thank you Rita and Haus Am Strand. Breathtaking and soul reviving.

Things Tourists like. Genuine friendliness. Exceptional Character. Haus Am Strand is the place that we ourselves would always choose to return to on holidays.
Beautifully decorated with care and love.
Natural, unstuffy, humorous hosts, gardens, the artistic, the unusual. We just love this place. The host are doing her best and treat her guests like fellow human beings.
The sea is your big swimmingpool

Room Tip: All rooms have Sea View. Few steps to the beach. Higher floors with Wider Sea View.

The perfect accommodation! The perfect surroundings! The perfect hospitality! Haus am Strand is literally a 'stone's-throw-away' from the beautiful and tranquil Wilderness beach. The accommodation was clean, spacious, 'homely' and beyond-friendly hostess, Rita, was always willing to help. Haus am Strand is a MUST-STAY (and the price is ridiculously cheap!!!). Thank you Haus am Strand for an incredible honeymoon

Room Tip: The Garden Room opens up onto the beautiful lawn and breath-taking view of the sea!

We could not have found a more lovely, professional, clean and spectacular place to celebrate our honeymoon. Huis am Strand's owners really went the extra mile to make us (and all of there guests) comfortable, relaxed and at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, designed to meet your every need! The location is beautiful as the house sits directly on the beach- with the ocean views from your bed and a private direct access to the beach. The house itself is well maintained with manicured gardens and plenty of areas to sit and relax. With the peaceful sounds of waves crashing- this is the PERFECT getaway for couples, young and old.

Thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable! We will be back!
