We were pleasantly surprised with our room with a view - super clean, well-equipped, classy finishes, very comfy, and a lovely view of the bay. The room was spacious and light and felt like a home away from home. Friendly, efficient service and privacy when we wanted it. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I were looking for a Self Catering Apartment as he was doing the Karoo to Coast Cycle challenge and needed a bicycle friendly unit. When we walked in we were in awe at how beautiful the room was and the view stunning overlooking the Lagoon, the Heads and the ocean! The staff are friendly and very helpful!...

Stayed for three nights. The room was spacious with all the modern amenities.The room offered excellent and beautiful view of the complete town and the lagoon.

“The more expensive rooms have the view over the estuary (lagoon) which is magical. But if you can't afford those then the other apartments are great too.”
