A very good alternative to staying in Port Agulhas, only 5km from the lighthouse and rocks etc and across the road from a beautiful beach. It was too windy to swim, but watching the kite surfers provided much enjoyment instead. The room was clean and well appointed and had its own bathroom. Helpful tips from the staff and the breakfast...

Charming guest house,with friendly staff. Attention to detail was top draw. Just a 200-meter walk from a lovely unspoiled beach. The rooms were beautiful and clean, and the hearty breakfast topped was first class. I would highly recommend Mermaid Guest House.

This is our second visit to Mermaids Guest House and once again we had a wonderful stay with them. The rooms are comfortable, have heating and blankets for those cold Autumn nights we experienced. The breakfast is fabulous and the attention to detail is perfect. This is also the cleanest guest house we have ever stayed in. Just fantastic!!!

Wonderful small guest house with excellent facilities in a great location. Lovely staff who were attentive without being intrusive and made for a really relaxing stay. Worth every penny and would undoubtedly come back if returning to this beautiful and unspoilt part of Africa.

During our garden route trip we stopped for a night at the mermaid guest house. It was an excellent guest house and surprised it us all! Spacious room with a great view from the first floor rooms. When we woke up next morning, the breakfast surprised us all again! Try the omelette! 5* was the least we could award.

We were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist. The room ('the second mate's quarters') and bed were fine with a big window and nice decor. Tea/coffee, fridge, wifi, AC. The only problem was the tiny cubby hole shower room. My husband could hardly fit in. But Stuisbaai is a small place - not much choice. The Mermaid is a couple...
