First the good. Charlotte welcomes you so warmly and tries to make everything perfect. The breakfast was one of the best I've had, served to your table overlooking the long beach. For me what makes this guesthouse special are the large communal areas. We went to a supermarket and bought meat for a Braai, then cooked it on the lounge bbq, and ate ostrich burgers and corn with a great shiraz cabernet sauvignon sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea. Bliss.
The only downsides to this guesthouse are being charged extra for things that other places provide free; wifi (the first place so far in SA), beach towels, jacuzzi. And be aware it isn't actually in Mossel Bay but along a beach a few miles away.
I wasn't going to give 5 stars to this place, but in the end the great rooms, delicious breakfast and friendly service more than compensate for these minor annoyances.
