The guest house is a nice building, well decorated and a lot of wood which gives a very rustic feeling. The staff is friendly and we would have had a great stay here were it not for the other guests who were very loud starting 5:30 in the morning. Sure this is not the fault of the guest house but...

We had a fabulous family weekend together, a great location with everything at a walking distance. Highly recommended and owner Rene and staff were extremely friendly and went out of her way to assist with all the outings and bookings.

Stopped in for one night and the place was lovely. Very kid friendly and accommodating. Didn't have the breakfast as we got up and did the shark dive, but she had some fruit for us to take on the boat.

We had one night at the guesthouse. The guest house was very fine and very clean. We had booked for a shark tour but unfortunately the trip was cancelled as no sharks had been seen in area for a week. Rene was very, very helpful and arranged another shark tour in Mossel Bay, thanks a lot Rene!.

We were in the family appartment for the second time and really feel home. Rene is really nice and welcoming. The apartment is cosy, very quiet and confortable. From the house upstairs we have wonderful sea view. We love this place and probably go back soon.

Lovely owner and very helpful. Arrived late and the owner even booked a table, last minute, in a restaurant. Perfect spot for shark diving which is across the street. Very nice and clean rooms and common areas inside. Highly recommended.

Hospiable, accomodating, clean and friendly. What more could you want! She helped us plan and schedule our shark cage dive. She allowed us to check out late so that we could shower and take a nap after the 5:30 dive. Extremely helpful with good suggestions for onward travel.

“You can ask for the first room at the top of the stairs if you want a nice balcony and a beautiful view. But I would reserve in advance.”
