“Awesome Child Friendly Property.”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Originally Diaz Beach Resort at Mossel Bay was booked from 7th.to 10th.Nov,2015 through Tripadvisor Vacation Rental, though i was very much there in South Africa on those days,but couldn't make my visit due to certain reason explained to the owner Ms. Anandi Griffin who obliged and booked Barefoot Lodge at Mossel Bay from 21st. to 24th. March 2016.
Firstly i would appreciate the honesty and sincerity of the owner in allowing me to adjust the proceeds in this property for our stay,and the hospitality shown was amazingly too good and the property is situated in the happening area or just walkable distance and beach is just 2 to 3 min.walk.
As regards property decor and amenities were far better than any 5* hotel or property or would say mind blowing awesome or complete holiday 4 bed room home with all electronic gadgets of highest standard and beautifully decor done with child friendly and my daughter's views are still better than me, who is actively practicing interior designer by profession.
Owner;s mother Ms. Marianne was superb as she guided about the surrounding and the hospitality was outstanding,seeing the honesty of the owners would again visit this property only in near future as my grandson is schooling in South Africa and i am residing in Mumbai in India.

“A home away from home!”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What an awesome experience. The owner was always available when we needed to communicate with her, from the time of booking to being received on arrival.
This really is a home away from home. It is spacious, well furnished, well equipped with everything. We were surprised to find kiddies boogie boards, fish nets and beach toys in the unit. Our kids were indeed entertained.
The linen and towels were clean. We never ran out of clean towels…lol. Upon arrival we shown around. Everything was provided, a map of Mossel Bay including the surrounding areas to even menus of popular restaurants. The other residents and holiday makers in the village we also super friendly. No disturbances, noise etc. Only the beautiful sound of the ocean which is literally a stone throw away. The view from top deck is specular. The tidal pool for the kids is also visible from the deck. We spent hours watching the kids collect shells on the beach. To get to and from town is also easy accessible and very close. Nights are patrolled by a security guard which offers security – not that we ever felt that it was needed – the village is very safe. I am a travel agent and have visited quite a few self-catering apartments/holiday homes, but Barefoot Lodge is indeed the best I have ever experienced. I recommend this establishment to anyone who is planning to do a holiday in Mossel Bay. My feedback back home has already spread like veld fire. They do deserve a 5 star rating!!! We will forever be grateful to Anandi and Mariaane. The welcome we received is unexplainable. We will indeed be back for a second visit – without a doubt!

“Beautiful Cottage, Breathtaking Location, Great Stay”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at Barefoot Lodge for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. It is a typical beach home less than a minute away from the beach with an excellent view from the deck on the roof.

Although not beach FRONT, it is within a calm and quiet neighborhood with beachfront restaurants (with very good fish and chips!) at a 30 second walk away.

Marianne and Anandi were great hosts - helpful, available, and informative. They made us feel at home and gave us all the info we needed on what to expect and what to do.

So if we do plan another trip to Mossel Bay, the Barefoot Lodge would definitely be our top choice for a place to stay.

Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I would just like to say that my family and I had the most wonderful time at Barefoot Lodge. The place is furnished with everything you could possibly need, décor was out of this world and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! Totally splendid! I would recommend it to anyone! Thank you Anandi and Marriane

“Beach Heaven!!”
Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Firstly, booking was so easy, the owner communicated with me and answered all my queries promptly, she was lovely.
Finding the house was simple, on the beach and in a secure development, we received good directions.
The house was perfect, the decor, furniture and fittings were very apt for a beach house, fresh, crisp white linen and ample towels but house and beach (the owner must love her towels!!).
Our welcome host was very informative and lovely to chat with about what was on offer, inside and outside the house.
The house also had lots of fun kids beach items, nets for rock pooling, body boards for the water, all only a few steps from the front door.
The location of the house made it walking distance to the local cafes, restaurants, antique shops and retail/commercial area for all our daily needs.
We would definitely recommend this house for families, couples and groups, it's spacious enough for all.
We would be happy to return and relax in the comfort, cook on the brai and chill on the roof top terrace: with the magnificent views of the ocean.
Thank you Anandi and team.
Take care,
Janet
