Stunning accommodation and setting. Rooms are beautiful and excellent and plentiful choice for breakfast. Lots of great tips on local attractions and places to eat from Amanda and Rika who made us feel right at home. We loved our stay here.

This was one of the best stay we had in South Africa. Amazing room with a stunning view on the ocean, particularly at sunrise. Everything clean and well furnished. Lovely breakfast outside - we had a great weather, so the staff moved everything under the sun. Go there and relax!
