“absolutely fantastic accommodation with friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

I had a very enjoyable stay and found the accommodation way above what i was expecting as it was very clean and comfortable,and the owners are fantastic and very friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them and have a great knowledge of surrounding and nearby attractions,this beautiful guest house not only has a fantastic decor and warm homely comfortable atmosphere but has stunning views across the bay with amazing romantic sunsets and the breakfasts are fantastic too, but most of all i went there as a customer but left there feeling like a friend

Room Tip: no tip as the rooms are fantastic with stunning views across the bay.

Shalene and Gerhart made us very welcome to the Marebella. Situated in the most glorious coastal location, they obviously loved the home they had built themselves and were appreciative, as we were, of the natural wonders around them. The terrace on the first floor is equally a great place to have breakfast or to enjoy a glass of South African wine at sundown.
Shalene booked 2 restaurants for us during our 2 night stay - both very good in their different ways. The room finish and furniture was maybe a bit simple considering the price, but the bed was very comfortable. We look forward to our return visit!

We had a spectacular stay with Shalene and Gerhart who were charming hosts. They made us very welcome, were most helpful and informative. Shalene arranged two restaurants for us which were very good. We enjoyed the home particularly - a beautifully designed modern space full of wonderful art. The views from the terrace and the rooms were unbelieveably beautiful. We certainly hope to return in the future.

Shalene and Gerhart are wonderful hosts and welcomed us warmly. Shalene was able to arrange a shark dive with practically no notice and recommended a nice walk along the cliffs to the beach. Gerhart recommended a local restaurant where we had one of the best meals on our vacation. Since it was not whale season, this gives us a perfect excuse to come again, this time for a longer stay. We had a beautiful room facing the sea and we were cordially invited to sit at the upstairs terrace as well where the view is even better. Since we're very interested in perhaps being in South Africa long-term, Gerhard was very informative about the expat community there and property information.

Room Tip: Two rooms available, both facing the sea with great views. Quiet street.
