Tsitsikamma on Sea
Ranked #1 of 2 Witelsbos B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 13, 2008

We found ourselves in a bind when our scheduled booking was unexpectedly canceled, and this was the first place we found. I'm sure the suites pictured on their web site are lovely - through some misunderstanding (likely on our part) we wound up in a cottage (not pictured on the web site) that didn't quite meet my definition of 4 star accommodations.

The road to the establishment is heavily potholed, and our little rental sedan was nearly swallowed. The other sort of scary bit was the rather large bull behind what appeared to be a thin piece of twine, rather than something along the lines of an electric fence. Just a bit of a surprise.

I'd suggest booking a suite if staying here rather than a cottage.

This review is not of the 4-star rated Tsitsikamma on Sea Luxury Lodge, but of unrated cottages on the estate, a working farm, that were made available to these guests who had an emergency and who had chosen not to stay in the lodge but in the cottages, at a fraction of the price. Others have found the same cottages delightful.
