“Best place even been”
Reviewed March 19, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Amazing place to hang out and leave all other things behind you. The view and the spirit of this home is impressive even when it is foggy(-:. Also many thanks again Sally and Henry for the Brai. We still talk about you in the first place when it comes to our South Africa trip. See you again in 1-2 years time- then of course been married(-: and you know Hamburg is also welcoming you.

“Unforgettable!”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Clifftop during July 2015 during the middle of winter and it was AMAZING!!!!

The cottage was warm and cozy and fully equipped and the views, oh the views....

We loved lying in the bath watching the ocean and sitting on deck enjoying a bottle of wine not knowing whether to look at the mountain behind us or the waves lapping the cliffs below.

Even though it's been a few months, my husband and I talk often about our stay and yearn to go back! Next time we will stay for longer.

We were a family of 5 and there was more than enough space for us all to have our own personal space and not get in each other's way.

To my mind the houses are even better than they appear in the pictures.

“This is where my soul breathes out!”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Ballots Bay, and Clifftop houses in particular, is simply the most beautiful place I know. I have stayed in all three houses at various times, and each offers something unique and wonderful. Having recently stayed at number 8 I am once again awed by the genius of Henry's design, and the incredible style of Sally's interior decorating. Floating above the ocean in bed or on the deck is a breathtaking experience, and I cannot recommend it enough. The houses are beautifully kitted out, the property is exquisite and the whole experience some real food for the soul.

“a luxurious adventure into the wildreness!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Cliff house left us speechless when we arrived as it was even more beautiful than we imagined. The children loved the adventure approach road and we loved gazing out to sea in the hope of seeing the whales. There is so much to see and do within an hour including prehistoric caves, mountains, nature reserves, superb beaches including world class surfing, wonderful markets,lakes...I could go on and on. There are beautiful walks and brai sites on the reserve, the kids couldn't believe it when they saw zebra and ostrich at the top of the hill! The house is stunning, comfortable, well equiped and secluded. Make sure you allow plenty of time to stay here as you will not want to leave. Thank you again Sally and Henry - what a beautiful gift you have made available
