We loved the tops so much at our first visit (February 2012) that we extended from 3 to 5 nights, and returned again this year.
Views are very important for my wife, and seeing the ocean from the bed was just what she wanted.
Breakfast at the terrace overlooking the town, the beach and the Indian Ocean is what you ask for
at the Garden Route.
We counted 8 different bird species while having breakfast, including two different kinds of sunbirds.
The owner, Dot, is very helpful with advice on restaurants, walking trips and providing umbrellas for the beach and more. If you stay long enough you can learn a lot about Afrikaans family history by listening to her stories.
Only problem for new arrivals: As the house is rather spread out with different levels and stairways through the flowering trees it might take some time to find the entrance.
The unique luggage lift is another nice thing to look out for.
