“Beautiful Cottage, Breathtaking Location, Great Stay”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at Barefoot Lodge for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. It is a typical beach home less than a minute away from the beach with an excellent view from the deck on the roof.

Although not beach FRONT, it is within a calm and quiet neighborhood with beachfront restaurants (with very good fish and chips!) at a 30 second walk away.

Marianne and Anandi were great hosts - helpful, available, and informative. They made us feel at home and gave us all the info we needed on what to expect and what to do.

So if we do plan another trip to Mossel Bay, the Barefoot Lodge would definitely be our top choice for a place to stay.

I would just like to say that my family and I had the most wonderful time at Barefoot Lodge. The place is furnished with everything you could possibly need, décor was out of this world and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! Totally splendid! I would recommend it to anyone! Thank you Anandi and Marriane

“Beach Heaven!!”
Reviewed January 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Firstly, booking was so easy, the owner communicated with me and answered all my queries promptly, she was lovely.
Finding the house was simple, on the beach and in a secure development, we received good directions.
The house was perfect, the decor, furniture and fittings were very apt for a beach house, fresh, crisp white linen and ample towels but house and beach (the owner must love her towels!!).
Our welcome host was very informative and lovely to chat with about what was on offer, inside and outside the house.
The house also had lots of fun kids beach items, nets for rock pooling, body boards for the water, all only a few steps from the front door.
The location of the house made it walking distance to the local cafes, restaurants, antique shops and retail/commercial area for all our daily needs.
We would definitely recommend this house for families, couples and groups, it's spacious enough for all.
We would be happy to return and relax in the comfort, cook on the brai and chill on the roof top terrace: with the magnificent views of the ocean.
Thank you Anandi and team.
Take care,
Janet

“A quiet, restful place for a perfect family holiday close to the ocean!”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had a wonderful time in Barefoot lodge-it is such a beautiful home we just wish we could have stayed for longer! We spent most of our time on the roof deck or swimming in the tidal pools at the Point and even managed to find a place to hire surf boards at Diaz beach so kids were thrilled! The house is spotless- it has everything you could possibly wish for as a family of 5 down to a washing machine and bucket and spades! With full wifi and tv even the teenagers were happy and it is so close to restaurants we could leave the car behind or even order 'take out'.
The owners mum met us and was very helpful with information and advice. We hope to return some time to South Africa but next time we will definitely book in to Barefoot lodge for a much longer stay!

“Fantastic place in a great location”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The first thing I would say is that the communication with the owners was great, they were most helpful and answered out questions via email very quickly. On our arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile!!
The house is spotless. The décor is beautiful and light and furnished to a high standard. The amenities are second to none, you have the use of a washing machine and tumble driver which is very helpful!
There are local restaurant a stones throw away, offering great food and a great atmosphere.
We were due to drive to Knysna on our second day, but the place is so lovely we decided to stay and enjoy the beach and sea.
There is a great roof top area with a Braai and seating, which was lovely to have breakfast on. There is also an indoor Braai, which we didn't use but both were spotlessly clean.
Would we stay there again, most definitely!

“BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN MOSSEL BAY”
Reviewed November 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I visited with my husband and two teenage children in August. We had a wonderful time and only wish we could have stayed longer. The house is beautifully decorated and in a great position by the sea. There are lots of options for eating out close by, and a lovely walkway around the seafront. We were met and looked after by the owner's mum, who was a really lovely lady and couldn't do enough for us. She even arranged a delicious chocolate cake with candles for my son, as it was his birthday when we arrived. I would highly recommend this vacation home. We spent 3 weeks in South Africa in lots of different guesthouses, but this was certainly one of the best as far as space, location and friendliness of the owner went.

“An absolute gem in Mossel Bay”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved our stay at Barefoot Lodge. The whole house is beautifully furnished in a beach theme throughout and the whole place oozes character. The rooms are spacious and two are en suite which is a bonus. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and starlight away noticed that the house had everything you could possible need for a stay. Loads of towels including beach towels, a fully and well equipped kitchen, even Tupperware if you need it as well as beach toys for the kids. I am very sensitive to noise at night but it was so quiet and the beds so comfortable that we slept really well here. The view from the deck is gorgeous and the house is literally a few steps from the beach. Great resteraunts nearby and some lovely coastal walks too. We will be staying here again!
