High above the bay a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Breakfast served overlooking the view through large picture windows. A taxi ride from the centre but taxis are good when booked. Veronica the manager very helpful in knowing where to eat in the evening.

The pool as fantastically located if you are in a room downstairs and you don't sacrifice the view. All in all this was a fantastic experience. i can't...

The cleanliness and modernity of this guest house were very impressive. Despite the lack of completely effective soundproofing for top floor rooms, we loved the incredible views over Plettenberg Bay (and beyond) as we ate our delicious breakfasts in the mornings. The serving staff were brilliant and Veronica, our host, was in many ways more like a friend, extremely helpful...

Very nice location with good view over Plett; friendly service. Only missing an espresso-machine for breakfast-table. No longer commentaries previewed. It's not up to tripadviser to trouble guests with a minimum number of text

The guest house is located on a hill and you can see plettenberg from the top. The view and atmosphere you have during breakfast or in the evening with a glas of wine is just amazing! Breakfast is really good as well and rooms are nice but small. If you need more privacy than this might be the only thing...

Wonderful guest house - great view of the bay, very welcoming hosts and modern / well maintained facilities. A home away from home. Veronica was a wonderful host and organised a taxi / restaurant booking for us before we even arrived which was great given how busy the town was in early January. Highly recommended.

Veronica, the manager, made us very welcome and had even booked us in to 2 good restaurants for our stay as it was a busy period. She also took care of taxi reservations and recommended places to visit. We particularly enjoyed the Robberg peninsula for walking and Knynsa. The well appointed rooms looked out on to the pool & decking...

The only thing that we regret about this beautiful place is the fact that we stayed here for 1 night only!!! Veronica, the manager, has great taste and recommended a fabulous place for dinner (Emily Moon) and decorated the house with candles to make us feel right at home. We felt very take care of. There are only 4 rooms...

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and also that the restaurant choice was to your liking. Actually, the guesthouse has four rooms but 2 are upstairs and tucked away so you didn't notice them. We would love to have you visit for longer next time. Fond regards Veronica

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip along the garden route and what a find! The guest house is stylish and the staff fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they suggested and organised lots of bookings for us. We will definitely be back here it was just so lovely.
