Completely fantastic B&B. Our stay got off to a good start when their detailed directions meant we found the place with no trouble. Unfortunately we arrived on a rainy day and so Kate and Natalie kindly suggested that we change room - our original room had a balcony/veranda that we wouldn't have got much use out of in the weather....

We, two couples, stayed here for 5 nights in the middle of a 3 weeks journey through SA. We loved to be here since it was the most beautiful place within this 3 weeks. We can highly recommend D&D as a wonderful, familiar and lovely place to relax. Hope we will be able to come back again one day Again...

We (family of four) stayed here just after Christmas in the rooms above the main house with an amazing view of the Lagoon. Rooms, common areas including pool and breakfast were all excellent but what set Double Dutch apart for us was the warm and friendly welcome and helpful advice of Nathalie & Kate.

We stayed in the Albatross Suite, which was lovely and very quite. As all the reviews have said before, the Double Dutch is a perfect place to stay. It is very clean and modern, and Natalie and Kate couldn't be more helpful. We felt we were staying with friends rather then at a B&B. It was just lovely. The B&B...
