Very nice , clean rooms. Breakfast is possible . Car can be parked safely. Not too far, by car , from the oceanside. Mathew is a cool manager. Nice restaurant by the oceanside is the Look Out Deck (good food , very relaxed).

We were the only two guests on a cold winter day and had the greatest time. Volunteer staff were amazing (Ava was so wonderful). Such a peaceful spot in Plett - the most beautiful views of any accommodation. Good clean facility. Would definitely go back.

About
Description
This one of a kind hostel and lodge is nestled between an array of Fynbos(Wild flowers)on a cliff with a 270 degree panoramic view overlooking a lake all the way to the warm Indian ocean and the Robberg Peninsula. We More believe we have the most fantastic view on the Garden Route and seeing is believing. A true hidden GEM.Relax with a book in the garden on one of the hammock under the trees or surf the net on our free WIFI. The building is a beautiful Villa with high ceilings and large windows so you never miss out on the view where ever you are in the Lodge. All our bedrooms have a fantastic view with lots of natural light at anytime of the day. The atmosphere is homely and we pride our self on giving our guest the VIP treatment at all times. Fancy catering for your self, our kitchen is well equipped and you will need nothing else to prepare any meal. If you feel like having a braai(BBQ) then we will light up the fire and provide you the spices. The beers is always cold and the fires always hot so why not spoil your self and pay us a visit. Less
