I've stayed in countless self catering places on the South Coast and this has been the most modern and clean. Many places are tired and old and full of mildew, which I've become used to as a quaint South Coast thing. Not here. I stayed in Unit 9, upstairs with a view of the sea. Everything is newly built, the finishings are modern and new. Everything is clean and stylish. For the R650 I paid per night for a two bedroom, two bathroom unit with twin sleeper couch in the lounge it was a pleasure to stay here. Super hot water and completely modern bathroom fittings, granite kitchen tops and modern kitchen cupboards and appliances. There is direct access to the beach, and plenty of rock pools and a tidal pool for the kids to discover. The nearest swimming beach with lifeguards is St. Michaels, a 3km drive down the road.
The owners are a pleasure, they've clearly invested good money for great accommodation and they are a friendly couple who don't intrude on your spot if you choose not to pay for daily cleaning services, which I didn't. But they will leave cleaning products for you so you can get your kids to do the dishes every day, to pay for their holiday, like I did ;-)
