“Home away from home”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A cottage within a stone's throw of the ocean. Spotless with an attention to detail seldom encountered.

My boyfriend and I booked Snails' End Cottage for a weekend away as a birthday treat. From the moment of contacting Penny, she was nothing but helpful, going out of her way to answer questions that I had about the area.
The accommodation is excellent value for money and was perfect for us and our dog. It was clean, bright and welcoming, with fresh towels and linen and even chocolates on the pillows. The hostess even left a birthday gift, a very kind personal touch.
The kitchen offers everything that one would need, and there is a nice terrace area with braai facilities.
Although a very short drive outside of the main town of Hermans, it is ideally located being just a stone's throw from a beautiful beach walk. It is situated in a quiet area with nothing but the sound of the ocean and wildlife.
We would definitely return.
