earHaving been to many different guesthouses in SA both last- and this year there is none that can trump Aquavit. So what's their secret? Combine a good location, money, imagination, creativity, good taste, attention to detail and experience and you get a great place to stay, than add real hospitality and a well trained staff. If you want the best...

Recently had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful guest house for 3 nights. I have travelled the world and stayed at many small luxury guest houses. This one receives 10 stars. Linda and Ole together with their two dogs welcomed us into their stunning home. The breakfasts are a work of art and delicious. Every attention to detail is...

Not sure what we can add to all the other great reviews for the Aquavit except to say that they are all true. Linda & Ole are wonderful hosts, the accommodation and standards would put some 5 star hotels to shame. The breakfast and its presentation is probably one of the best we've had ( and we have'nt forgotten the...

It was our first time in a guesthouse accomodation and we definitely loved this experience. Linda and Ole were the most helpful and lovely hostesses that we could have....more than a concierge from a 5 star hotel! The bedroom was very confortable and spacious with every little detailed thinking for the guest. Very well decorated with a lot of very...

Super house, great room and a breakfast to remember. Hosted by a lovely American couple with great taste and extremely high standards. A real find and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. If you're looking for somewhere we'll located in the town then look no further.

Wow; just Wow! To start, let me just say that Aquavit is quite simply the most beautiful contemporary home that we have ever been in! Our family of five adults had booked three rooms here and all were simply stunning! Meeting Linda and Ole was like meeting old friends; so incredibly warm and welcoming; within minutes of our arrival we...

As a one night stop en-route down the garden route, this was a real highlight of our trip. Exquisite bedrooms and lounge areas, with tasteful and eye catching art and artefacts all around you, Aquavit was a real feast for the eyes and senses. Not to be outdone though, the staff and owners shone to make you feel at home...

We loved our stay at Aquavit. Friendly Linda & Ole made us very welcome and were very helpful in planning and advising our itineraries and booking our taxis and restaurants. We had the delightful honeymoon suite but the whole house was beautiful. The view over Plettenberg bay was beautiful and accompanied the freshly cooked and delicious breakfast. Linda also provided...
