Our family of 7 had a wonderful experience with Linda and Ole. We occupied the three downstairs luxury, beautifully appointed bedrooms with our own lounge. Each room opened up on to the pool area where we could just relax and look at the amazing view. Ole and Linda and all of their wonderful staff could not have treated us any...

We truly enjoyed our first stay with Linda and Ole at Aquavit. Our room was large and comfortable, and opened on to the pool deck, with its wonderful view of Plett Bay. The breakfasts were something to look forward to, and the friendly staff made it all the more special. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating, with many recommendations...

What a fantastic place, with amazing views of Plett Bay. We arrived around 4pm to be greeted by the owners. We were shown to our room, and we were suitably impressed. The owners had even reserved us a table at a fab fish restaurant, as it was a Saturday evening and good restaurants get booked up quickly. We were NOT...

We have stayed at Aquavit with Linda and Ole six times now. It is simply the best guest house we've ever stayed in in South Africa. Room 1 is amazing. The view over the beach and river estuary make a spectacular backdrop to the delicious breakfasts that are so beautifully presented. The hosts really go the extra mile to make...

We have stayed in plettenberg bay before, but staying at Aquavit has been a completely different wonderful experience for us both. We were so lucky that we was able to spend two whole weeks there. Linda and Ole were so amazing, kind and knowledgable and nothing was too much for them, they were so welcoming. The guest house was outstanding...

A fantastic stay in one of the best boutique guest houses on the garden route. Ole and Linda are brilliant hosts and the house is very beautiful. Breakfast is so lovely with something different each day. Linda is a very talented lady. When in South Africa again we will always stay at Aquavit House.

We had a wonderful week at Aquavit. Linda and Ole are perfect hosts who pay a lot of attention to detail right down to multi plugs in the bedroom where all electrical plugs including USB can be powered. Brilliant breakfasts on the veranda are served by well trained staff. The colour, flavour and presentation of the beautiful home-made food on...
