This 6 night stay was the highlight of our trip of a lifetime to South Africa. The first three night we were in the Naughtilus suite and the second three we were upgraded to the Kingfisher. The Kingfisher would be able to hold its own and mostly beat with 5 star hotel accommodation. Judy and her two helpers spared no...

In a nutshell - Clean, safe, cheap for what you recieve. and the service is Excellent One thing to remember - bring a good map as the location is away from the town centre and there are no signs to guide you.. I stayed here for 2 nights in the Kingfisher suite. The suite is huge, and the house is...

We stayed here for 2 nights for our honeymoon in the Kingfisher room which is simply amazing. There is more than enough space here and it felt more like we were staying in our own apartment rather than a room since we had our own reception area, bedroom, balcony, and an enormous bathroom. Charles provided a warm welcome from the...

We booked at the Halcyon at the last minute and were booked into a tiny room, all that was left. Even so it was very clean and served our needs for a comfortable night. Charles welcomed us warmly and found us a great restaurant for dinner on the beach, even attending to detailed driving instructions as part of the road...

Thank you to Judy and Charles for a lovely stay. The Kingfisher room is five star with a great outlook. Charles is a great host and makes a great breakfast. Plettenberg Bay is a beautiful place, be sure to have lunch at Moby Dicks on the beach. Visit the Knysna elephant sanctuary, stay overnight if you really like elephants.

Upon arrival was met by Judy. She served us scones & Tea. Though we booked the Nautilius Rm we decided to stay in the Kingfisher Suite. The room has under floor heating, which keeps us warm in cold nights.We were the only guest there as it was low season, we had all the attention we wanted. Judy recommended some good...

We only spent two lovely days at Halcyon House, but we enjoyed every minute of them .. from our glass of wine upon our arrival to the tips for our route to the next location. The house is exquisite, the hosts very attentive and the surrounding area gorgeous. I especially enjoyed opening the curtains to that wonderful view in the...

We stayed for a week in Halcyon House in Feb 2009. The house is spacious and a real oasis of tranquility, with excellent comfortable accommodation and lovely views over plettenberg Bay. Judy and Charles were wonderful hosts and had thought of all the little details which set this guest house above the rest. ( Charles makes superb breakfasts too !...

What a beautiful house to stay in while visiting the Garden Route. Charles was the perfect host at all times, nothing too much trouble for him whatsoever. Breakfast was fantastic, everything you could want for (including the views). A 20 min walk down the beach will take you into town where there are a good few restaurants. You must go...
