What a lovely place to stay - conveniently situated with lovely hosts and super breakfasts. Add to this the resident owls, short stroll to the beach, restaurants or shops and what more could you want? We have already booked for next year so what does this tell you?

Great hosts, excellent breakfasts, convenience to the town, golf course and beaches made this a perfect holiday destination. The room was charming and the only thing that was missing on some hot nights was a fan! New year in St Francis is an enjoyable, hectic experience.

We stayed for a couple of days during our visit to South Africa. I can recommend this lovely guest house - we felt very welcome and was impressed with our friendly hosts. Breakfasts could have a bigger variety. Rooms were neat and tidy.

Neat and very basic accommodation for our family weekend getaway. Small kitchenette came in handy although there was lack of privacy in our unit. The location is ideal though, across the road from the shops and local SuperSpar as well as the lovely Saturday morning market. Within walking distance to the local golf course and a 5 min drive from...
