“This was Holliday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We had such a great stay at makarios, Makarios is surely blessed as the name say! Everything was good, the only thing maybe for summer times in the room that is a need is a fan, it can even be a portable one, but still it is so safe in Heroldsbay we slept with an open door!

We stayed for 7 nights at this delightful beach side apartment. It is run by Antoinette and Louis who live on the top floor (of 3) and are the most perfect hosts - always willing to help, never bothersome. The accommodation is all self-catering with two superb rooms that overlook the Indian Ocean at Herold's Bay. If you've never been lulled to sleep by the continuous sound of the ocean, then you must try this. The beds are also huge and very comfortable. Herold's Bay is quiet and secure but not far from all the wonderful sights of the Garden Route. Next time we go we'll certainly pay that bit extra for one of the two front rooms.

Room Tip: The two side rooms do have a view of the ocean but not nearly as good as the front two. Get out earl...
