Staying at Neil's is like visiting the home of an old friend who just happens to also be a uniquely talented designer and cook. We came to Gaansbai to see the sharks, but talking late into the night in the living room and exploring the remarkable collection of books and magazines (including National Geographic copies dating back to 1934) at De Kelders was easily the highlight of the trip. This is a truly special place and proof of the soothing effect of thoughtful design. I very much hope to get the chance to visit again.
