Firstly, false advertising. Dodgy neighborhood. Cottage has 3 beds and one shower, no door separating the beds. Kitchen and bedroom in the same room. No kitchen sink. No space. Lounge in the same bedroom. I couldn't even sleep there, had to go around looking for alternatives at Six in the evening.

Hi Lebogang Firstly, you made the booking through Booking.com where it states we are 10km from North Beach. When you arrived you promptly started shouting at our manager that you had booked at the beach and we've lied to you etc etc, when she tried to ask you why you thought we were located at the beach you rudely told...

Excellent facilities, clean and neat, no issues at all. Staff were friendly and the view from the apartment was great. Although my stay was not overnight, we had a great sleep, beds are amazing, will gladly stay here again!

Family of five holiday. The rates were acceptable. Space was perfect for everyone. Hospitality was average. Cleanliness was fair. Linen & towels not changed daily. A bit noisy since rooms are close to each other.

The towels were not enough for 4 people having to shower in the evening and morning. The towels were worn with holes in it. Not enough cupboard space for 4 people. The bathroom is very small with only one small rail to hang the used towels. Furniture outside on the patio needs a good varnish.

Firstly, thank you for the owner who waited for us to arrive a little late that day. We felt safe in the area and the guesthouse is located in an area that is close to town etc. The guesthouse was neat and tidy, however, the linen did not look to clean.
