The guesthouse is nicely located near the beach, restaurants, and the beautiful- tranquility Robberg nature reserves. The upper rooms with a nice view of the beach. Exquisite service at a minimum cost.

We had the app with the private garden for 3 nights and it was absolutely perfect. Erika knows the area and all the things to do. The app was lovely and i liked the little details such as the flowers on the bed. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Oh yes! It was cold and the bed had a heater!!!... More

A bar ( with friendly bartender and wise lessons on the wall) with BBQ... More

It was just one day stay and we were very rushed. Other than that it was great value for money. The room has some issues. Bathroom makes a lot of noise after flushing and roof and walls have lost of mildew.

Lovely guest house situated within easy distance to the town centre and all beaches in Plettenberg Bay. Erika the host was amazing - made me feel right at home. Breakfasts were very tasty indeed. My room was lovely and private and the bed was very comfortable.

A very well-appointed double room with electric blanket, full DSTV, boiling hot power shower and comfy bed. Best part though was the welcoming hostess Erika and the delicious breakfast she cooked us including home made health bread - will definitely be back!
