This bed & breakfast was the first stop on our tour of South Africa's garden route, and it got us off on a great start. Guenter greeted us up at the airport, and our first hour with him set us up for a relaxing two weeks in South Africa as he gave us some travel essentials. Don't roll your eyes at his tirade about traveling light and leaving non-essentials behind - not only did this keep us safe, it also made the vacation more about relaxing and enjoying, and less about looking over our shoulder.
The B&B is well appointed, with excellent rooms, clean showers, modern safes, free wifi, and a very substantial breakfast spread, both continental and cooked. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The pool is nice and cool for the mid-afternoon heat, and larger than it looks.
The best feature was Guenter's advice on what to visit and when, as well as doing the heavy lifting by booking tickets for us online, and printing confirmations for us. He also provided an excellent taxi service at the same bargain rate as the local taxis.
Guenter's thoughts about iPhones at the breakfast table is a little old fashioned, perhaps more telling about his German stubbornness. Whatever. Leave the email and Facebook updates behind - you're on vacation!
