Wonderful Hostess and lovely Hospitality from the entire staff. We had a love room with a balcony and good beds. Not my favorite part-yet situationally very doable---the bathrooms were across a private hall. .AND we really enjoyed our room and LOVED the breakfast with fish, yogurt, many options for breads and pastries and great coffee and luscious fruits. Just a...

We just spent the past 6 nights at this wonderful guest house and enjoyed every minute of it. Hostesses, Judy and Caroline, were incredible! They paid attention to every detail, making us feel very welcome and comfortable. There was always an evening treat of chocolate, port, amarula and water. They gave great advice on things to do in the area...

This is a beautiful property, within easy walking distance of the beach. We stayed in the Kingfisher Suite. It was truly amazing. We had a beautiful ocean view from our bed and balcony, with a full sliding glass door/window that opened onto the front balcony. The attention to detail with furnishings, fixtures and the amenities added a nice touch. You...

Halycon House is situated a stones throw away from the beach where there are lifeguard s on duty and a short drive or taxi ride to Plett restaurants. Caroline and Judy have perfected the needs of their guests even to the extent of leaving out a nightcap, providing beach towels/bag/sun umbrellas, water, it has a small swimming pool and a...

From the moment we arrived, Caroline (the host), Gloria, Cleopatra and Lovemore were on the ball, and made our stay very pleasant. We can highly recommend Plett for a good holiday, and Halcyon House for an awesome overall experience.

We were welcomed by a friend of the owners as they were away. He showed us to our room and invited us to watch the rugby with him. The room took up most of the top,floor of the house and was very comfortable. Breakfast was served by Cleopatra and Gloria who prepared us the most delicious scrambled eggs. A special...

This place is really something, completely different to anywhere else I've stayed. Beautiful and restful building and location with excellent fresh and varied food. But the best thing about it is the warm welcome from owner Caroline, and Gloria, Cleo and Lovemore who made it such a pleasure to be there. You got the sense that everyone enjoys being there...

We stayed at Kingfisher Suite for 7 Nights. The best room during our 3 weeks in SA and the best breakfast. Ever day different. Caroline is such a nice owner with a big heart. Gloria, Cleo and Lovemore-thank you also so much! When we come back,only to this place. We loved the coffee we had every morning on the balcony....

A beautiful house in a residential area which makes it difficult to find without google maps or GPS. Near to the beach! We booked very late and got the Coral room. Not the best room in the house I suppose if reading other reviews correct. Very small with no AC but OK for one night. Caroline and her staff provide...

Halcyon House is a gracious residence oozing charm. The hostess and her staff could not have been more helpful and the breakfasts were of a high standard. Although it was not beach weather during our visit we did discover that it is only a short walk from the house. One does need transport to get into the centre of Plettenberg...
