I visited at the end of winter 2014. The apartment we had ticked all the boxes : beautiful decor, amazing view, huge balcony, lovely kitchen and a really wonderful bed. The jacuzzi in a storm is both beautiful and inadvisable (for fear of electrocution) but we did it anyway. The whole establishment makes huge efforts to be as eco as... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Stone Cottage. The place has a authentic, homely feeling with a bit of a hippie vibe. We stayer for 3 nights in the Jannie family suite, which offers lots of space, including a fully equiped kitchen. It's ideally situated, walking distance to both beach and restaurants.

We stayed here five nights and found it a delightful change for run of the mill accommodation. Dimi and Annie are great hosts and nothing us too much trouble. Yes there is some traffic noise in the day but it's hardly noticeable at night. The only 'complaint' is the pebble shower in Pierre, it hurts the feet!

Stone cottage, although cheapish in plett, was the most expensive b&b in a nearly 2000km coastal trip. Defiantly not good value. The room was clean with all essentials one could need. Dirty linen on the bed. No safe parking as parking is in the street. This was like living in a student commune.

We stayed overnight during our jaunt across the cape. Our room was in the lower level of the 100 year old stone cottage. The place is a bit “shabby chic” and eclectic, but comfortable and clean.

We stayed at Stone cottage for 3 nights and loved it. The whole place has a quirky feel. Echo friendly and lots of recycling.

Loved the Hilda Suite. Special touches such as home made rusks and muesli by Dimi on arrival as well as Xmas crackers were a lovely touch. Perfect location - walking distance to town and beach. Its on a very busy main road so beware if you are a light sleeper. Lovely for families and youngsters.

What a great place. So typically South African. Tasteful decor. Clean and detailed. They thought of everything. And the hot tub was a nice surprise! And don't get me started on the views.
