Took a lovely walk along a well worn path south to the next beach. That night ate at the Delicious Monster restaurant had had an absolutely fantastically cooked...

We stayed for two days. Its a little hard to find and the driveway could be better. The owner and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We liked the seafood. The accomodation consists of two ensuite roundavels and a upstairs loft. They share a spacious, well equipped kitchen and a living room. The wooden terasse offers awsome ocean views

We did not stay at Delicious Monster after reading the reviews with shared lounge and kitchen as that is more suited to backpackers.The restaurant was a total suprise with stunning sea views and excellent seafood.

It was the name that first captured us when we started looking for a place in Port St. John's...How could we resist somewhere called Delicious Monster? We were expecting quirky .It was. Artsy and very laid-back and perfect for what we were looking for. We were also fortunate enough to have all to ourselves for the night we were there....

We stopped here for breakfast during our overlanding tour of the Wild Coast, and what a different, interesting place! Very laid back, nice vibe, and a beautiful view of Second Beach! I had a lovely omelet, very tasty filling! A bit off the beaten track, but worth it.

This is a arty, funky and whimsical establishment and the owner, Juliet, spared no trouble to ensure our comfort and to provide for our needs. Breakfast was included in our rate, and the breakfasts were well presented, sumptuous and quite delicious. On the first evening we arrived well after 21h00 and the staff waited up and even prepared a la...

We booked this on Booking.com where it was described as self contained self catering accomodation. After a long drive down 5k of rough unmade roads and very difficult uphill approach to the property we found it to be a backpackers site. The booked accomodation turned out to be shared with 2 other rooms with shared lounge, small kitchen and was...

Friendly host, stunning view and beautiful surroundings. Lots of birds in the canopy around the balcony. A home away from home with equipped kitchen and creative, attractive decor and details. Kitchen, lounge and deck are communal areas. If you are a larger group, looking for privacy and can afford it, it may be well worth booking the entire house (three...
