The house is beautiful as well as the gardens. Just a very short drive to Plettenberg and Robberg. Perfect breakfast. We stayed only for one night but would have loved to stay for at least a week. A little tip on Robberg: the long walk is really long and difficult and exausting, take a lot of water and a picknik...

We absolutely loved our time at Fynbos Ridge. We wanted peace & quiet and that's what we got. The cottages were perfect and the views were superb. A very comfortable stay. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our garden route trip. Although just off the N2 arterial road it feels as if it's in the middle of nowhere (in a good way). We were in the main building in the ground floor Plumbago room which was very large, well furnished and nicely appointed. Our friends were in the...

Thank you for the comprehensive review, and we are happy that you enjoyed Fynbos Ridge and Brian's breakfast offering! So sorry about the wifi, we had installed boosters recently, which worked very well until the local telephone provider (not the ISP) started replacing the cables in the area and due to the line "dropping" it affected the wifi quality -...

Lovely spot with a warm and homely feel. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we loved the home cooked breakfast in the morning. They even babysat our 8 week old while we had a quick breakfast before heading back to the airport :)

All reviews are correct when it comes to the location and the nicely decorated accommodation. However, we felt that the quality of service was not adequate when things went wrong. I would have expected a place like Fynbos Ridge to go the extra mile and they did not.

A beautiful cottage very well equipped, spacious, fresh with a beautiful view on the mountains. A merely 10 min drive from the beach. Very pleasant owners. What can we say. Perfection. It is why they have 5 stars as a self catering cottage. There are also some rooms and, I was told, an excellent chef. You can also order breakfast....

Fynbos was by far our most favourite place that we've visited so far. The cottage we stayed in is decorated with taste and lots of love. We felt welcome and well rested when we left. Very peaceful area; everything you need under one roof! The only suggestion would be to make the parking bay of the cottages more convenient for...

Thank you! If you visit us again we will put you in one of the other cottages, which have a flatter driveway, as the end cottage does have quite a steep entry into the garage. We are happy that you enjoyed Fynbos Ridge.

The setting, away from the hustle and bustle, is lovely. A short drive gets you into Plett and to the beach or markets and other attractions in the area. The view of the mountains is captivating - I loved watching the colours change as the sun came up. The pool is amazing and watching the birds from the varanda was...

We spent two nights at Fynbos and wished we had stayed a week. The place is peacefully tucked away among fynbos--vegetation with small leaves for other Americans--where the mountains form the backdrop. At the same time, it is very easy to get into Plettenberg Bay and the surrounding attractions. There are a few cottages on the property, and the one...
