I stayed there with my boyfriend but we were given a cottage for 6 people to enjoy all for ourselves. Really nice structure with a perfect sea view! The place is a bit humid given the proximity with the ocean but we loved the peaceful and quiet atmosphere.. to do again!

The fridge is a bit small for the duration that we stayed there. Not enough cupboard space in the rooms. Boggomsbaai is very nice and the quite atmosphere appeals to us. We enjoyed the wildlife as we have seen many tortoises and even the duikers at night. We enjoyed the stay in Voorhuis

This is a review for Oyestercatcher trail and Sandpiper cottages combined, but I rank them rather differently. Firstly the trail: very nice hike. Excellent packed lunches, lovely food at breakfast and dinner. Chris was a lovely guide. Nice varied but fairly easy walk. We saw Dolphins, seal, many birds, swam in the river...I really advice this for a nice but...

One of my good friends got married in Boggomsbay so all the girls were booked into the sandpiper cottage, and what a sweet little cottage! As we were busy getter ready you could smell the sea, the wind was blowing a bit, but this gave a calm environment, hearing the ocean on the background. I was in charge of doing...

A group of girlfriends did the Oystercatcher hiking trail with me in Oct. We loved everything about the hike (slackpacking) and was pleasantly surprised about the warmth and friendliness of the staff who went out of their way to make our outing a fun experience. The hike was moderate, we had loads of time to spot whales & dolphins, took...

We loved the beautiful furniture in our clean and comfortable home for the one night stay. Everything looked to be so lovingly cared for, and yet homely. We relaxed next to a roaring fire, set in the large fireplace and found everything to be just perfect. Their visitor's book attests to the many satisfied guest that have stayed previously. After...

We loved the cottage which was great value but there's nothing around. We didn't have dinner and had to drive 15 mins to a gas station. However, if you come prepared for self catering it's lovely. Also note it's not in Mossel Bay. This is really great property for families.

Dear Einav, Thank you for your kind comment ,we are really sorry you arrived without food! All the booking websites that we use states clearly that there is no restaurants and shops in Boggomsbaai - I will follow up with this particular website . Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in South Africa Kind regards Annemarie

Actually a funny place, a sports club, guest house and restaurant in one. Educational on environment, owner very clued up on nature and wildlife! Went through a lot of trouble to ensure guests are cosy and warm on cold night.
