We returned to lovely Fynbos Ridge for a third visit this Christmas. Once again had a fabulous stay in one of the cottages, perfect for our family of five. The grounds, swimming pool & views are gorgeous. Mel, Liz & Brian are fab hosts. We love the location so close to bustling Plett, but so quiet & tranquil. We have...

We stayed in a cottage which was extremely well equipped and we had a delicious dinner delivered to the cottage one night and cooked our own braii on another evening. We also stayed in...

This was our second visit to Fynbos Ridge this time as a family. The cottage came up to our expectations and worked very well for 4 people. The cottage is well equipped. As ever the owners were extremely welcoming and friendly.

It was kind of weird. Stayed there twice in past three weeks and it was very pretty. Nice rooms, big garden, everyone very helpful and friendly. All fine until our last morning (Jan 8) when, after we mentioned news of the Paris attack, one of the hosts replied with one horrendous statement about Muslims. Always a shock when someone who...

Very Nice and elegant accomodation in Nature, distance too beach but reachable in 10 minutes by car. Good Service, distance to braches of Plettenberg and restaurants but reichbelohnte in 10 minutes by car. Undorzunately we were not alle to have pur Dinner there as the Cook (and Owner) was ill. What we disliked were the Pigs at breakfast .

We really enjoyed our stay at Fynbos Ridge and wished we had booked for longer (only 1 night unfortunately). Cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Walking trail and animals were nice for kids. Hosts and staff were really friendly and helpful - tip for stopping at Wilderness beach worked out brilliantly. Only issue was that pool looked dirty...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We appreciate it. All comments help us to improve. I think that the weather did affect the pool on that day, as our water is usually clear and inviting. Glad that we could help with suggestions for your trip!

This being my first visit to any guesthouse in Plettenberg Bay, I did not know what to expect. Driving through the thick forest to the place I had my reservations but when I got to the place I was delightfully surprised at this little oasis in the forest. The place was absolutely stunning and the management was awesome, they also...

We had an awesome time here. We were greeted by Mel and her mum and to our surprise they upgraded us to the Villa. Very secluded and peaceful. We had our own braai, 2 bedrooms and bathrooms.
