Stone Cottage
Ranked #39 of 83 Plettenberg Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 September 2015

Dimi was an excellent host and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were like friends and the place had a very chilled atmosphere. We moved to a room with a log fire which was perfect for the chillier evenings of the dying days of winter and the bay view was lovely. There are Wifi issues the farther away from the router you are but if you have work to do, just ask Dimi and a solution will be found - it is a stone cottage with very thick, stone walls after all. The establishment will satisfy the best of recyclers and eco- friendlies and retains old world charm with modern concrete-cast features which are quite novel. The eatery recommendations given are very good. There is sufficient parking but if parking in the reserved spaces and have a low suspension vehicle - go to the right hand side - for goodness sake if you have a high suspension vehicle park on the left, you wont leave any bits of your vehicle behind. Lots of steps which you may need to bear in mind but, oh, that jacuzzi on the deck - heavenly.

Room Tip: State if wifi is essential to you if booking fairly early. Good wifi in shared lounge area, though...

We stayed for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We loved the bohemian decor and the lovely balcony as part of the Boetie Pierre accommodation. The area is very central and room is kept clean. Dimi was very helpful and we loved the homemade rusks. Good value for money...will definitely go again.

Loved this Boheme, alternative lodging. It has all that you need plus a warm and relaxed feel. Our only wish is that we could've stayed longer in Plett and Stone Cottage. With so much to do and enjoy we barely scratched the surface.
Dimi was a fantastic host too.
We will be back!

I visited at the end of winter 2014. The apartment we had ticked all the boxes : beautiful decor, amazing view, huge balcony, lovely kitchen and a really wonderful bed. The jacuzzi in a storm is both beautiful and inadvisable (for fear of electrocution) but we did it anyway. The whole establishment makes huge efforts to be as eco as is possible on the grid near the centre of a tourist town. They recycle, use organic waste for the garden, and time that jacuzzie so that it wastes less energy.
Admittedly, it is an urban stay, so one must be prepared for the creature comforts that come with urban - the gentle tide of traffic that starts early and street parking as opposed to offstreet parking. They do little to detract from the experience, and you can do yoga on the balcony looking at the sea, so if you're going to enjoy central Plett, its busy social life and its sandy beach, Stone Cottage will add a sense of the natural to your stay. And you can walk to 'town' in five minutes. Maybe less.

Room Tip: Ask for a view, or to be away from the Jacuzzi if you like peace and quiet.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Stone Cottage. The place has a authentic, homely feeling with a bit of a hippie vibe. We stayer for 3 nights in the Jannie family suite, which offers lots of space, including a fully equiped kitchen. It's ideally situated, walking distance to both beach and restaurants. Dimi is a sweet host and makers great rusks :-)
