If it is tranquility and rest, then look no further than Fynbos Ridge. Brian & great hosts, always there if you need them but allow you complete privacy when you want it. The place is situated just outside Plet, on the N2 which is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of the centre. The breakfast is a feast in...

This B&B is located in the beautiful countryside just outside of Plett. Unfortunately, the location is also in an area that had been recently hit by wildfires. They had suffered a fire that narrowly missed the main structures, but did damage the poolside. Brian and Liz were great hosts in spite of the situation. The room was large and well...

Thank you. The fire have been a very traumatic time for us. I am pleased to say that work on the pool has commenced and the landscaping should be complete by the end of the month. Looking forward to it!

Wow, thank you for the lovely review. We really do appreciate it. The pool repairs have been started and so has the landscaping and the reconstruction of the decking. Nearly back to normal! You will have to come and visit again to review the new pool area for us!

Returning to Heaven on Earth.. Recently on a business road trip to the West Coast, filming a documentary, the crew was looking for a peaceful retreat after a long day filming to rest, restore and replenish. I immediately convinced the crew that we needed to stay at Fynbos Ridge. Confident and excited to share my special luxury hideaway with them....

Lovely, friendly house very homely. Rooms were clean and the house has 2 spacious lounges. Pool was isolated and private and the breakfast was delicious. Short drive to plettenburg bay but lots of activities to do close by.

A really wonderful find, incredible views, beautiful setting and views, such helpful and generous staff/owners, super-comfortable and well-appointed rooms. The breakfast was farm-fresh and delicious (just way too much for 2 people to hope to get through :-)). Superb stay - I’ll definitely go back!
