“Awesome Birthday weekend away”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Barefoot Lodge was really the best Birthday present that my daughters,sisters and friends
could give me,the house was clean and it had everything in it that a person could think of.It is a very cosy house with the builtin braai that heated the whole house seeing that we were
there in the heart of winter.It was really a fantastic, awesome time we had there.Best for all
its only a few steps away from the beach.
I really had the time of my life that weekend.i couldnt have asked for better.THANK YOU
BAREFOOT LODGE!!!!

“Wow”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Undoubtedly the best. Well positioned, lovely views form the deck, well stocked, very clean and comfortable. It felt like home away from home. Mariana with her welcoming smile, was the cherry on the top. Even a birthday card for my father's 90th birthday. Well done and you will definitely see us again.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed May 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We finished our South Africa trip at Barefoot Lodge and it was the perfect end to an amazing holiday. The lodge has everything you need from beach towels to washing machine and stunning BBQ terrace overlooking to sea. Marrianna was very helpful and was very accommodating to anything we need.

The lodge is a stone throw away from a lovely beach area, with a park and restaurant over the sea, it was not noisy and has a great atmosphere. Would recommend for couple and families with young children. We loved it so much we have booked again!

“Fantastic holiday rental.”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Great location overlooking the beach, spotless house, very spacious and beautifully decorated. Great communication from booking, though to being met at the property. Fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. We were travelling with a 2yr old and there were even beach toys for her to play with, along with beach chairs and umbrellas.
Highly recommended and I will definitely be returning on our next trip to SA.

“Awesome Child Friendly Property.”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Originally Diaz Beach Resort at Mossel Bay was booked from 7th.to 10th.Nov,2015 through Tripadvisor Vacation Rental, though i was very much there in South Africa on those days,but couldn't make my visit due to certain reason explained to the owner Ms. Anandi Griffin who obliged and booked Barefoot Lodge at Mossel Bay from 21st. to 24th. March 2016.
Firstly i would appreciate the honesty and sincerity of the owner in allowing me to adjust the proceeds in this property for our stay,and the hospitality shown was amazingly too good and the property is situated in the happening area or just walkable distance and beach is just 2 to 3 min.walk.
As regards property decor and amenities were far better than any 5* hotel or property or would say mind blowing awesome or complete holiday 4 bed room home with all electronic gadgets of highest standard and beautifully decor done with child friendly and my daughter's views are still better than me, who is actively practicing interior designer by profession.
Owner;s mother Ms. Marianne was superb as she guided about the surrounding and the hospitality was outstanding,seeing the honesty of the owners would again visit this property only in near future as my grandson is schooling in South Africa and i am residing in Mumbai in India.

“A home away from home!”
Reviewed February 9, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What an awesome experience. The owner was always available when we needed to communicate with her, from the time of booking to being received on arrival.
This really is a home away from home. It is spacious, well furnished, well equipped with everything. We were surprised to find kiddies boogie boards, fish nets and beach toys in the unit. Our kids were indeed entertained.
The linen and towels were clean. We never ran out of clean towels…lol. Upon arrival we shown around. Everything was provided, a map of Mossel Bay including the surrounding areas to even menus of popular restaurants. The other residents and holiday makers in the village we also super friendly. No disturbances, noise etc. Only the beautiful sound of the ocean which is literally a stone throw away. The view from top deck is specular. The tidal pool for the kids is also visible from the deck. We spent hours watching the kids collect shells on the beach. To get to and from town is also easy accessible and very close. Nights are patrolled by a security guard which offers security – not that we ever felt that it was needed – the village is very safe. I am a travel agent and have visited quite a few self-catering apartments/holiday homes, but Barefoot Lodge is indeed the best I have ever experienced. I recommend this establishment to anyone who is planning to do a holiday in Mossel Bay. My feedback back home has already spread like veld fire. They do deserve a 5 star rating!!! We will forever be grateful to Anandi and Mariaane. The welcome we received is unexplainable. We will indeed be back for a second visit – without a doubt!

“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.
