The title says it all. Cannot fault Glen / Henriette at all. From the time they introduce themselves till the next day we left - eveyrthing perfect. Only pity is that our stay was to short. Great view from the balcony / excellent facilities. We just loved it! I can honestly highly recommend to stay here.

The place actually outdid the photos on the internet. The host couple was charming and very welcoming. We were given a bigger cottage even though we were only two - we reached after a 4.5 hour drive from Gansbaai and were taken aback by the place. Since its not an out and out commercial place and there are only 2-3...

We spent a lovely weekend in this very nice and spotless accomodation with a sunset view of the terrace. Owners did their best to accommodate us and put in a brand new barbecue which we used having our private sunset dinner party on the terrace. Close to the centre of town with nice choice of shops and restaurants. We would...

Clean, tidy, lovely welcome as always. The owners have worked very hard over the past few years to improve and enhance Big Tree House and the Cottages. The gardens look fantastic too - with that tropical oasis feel about them. They are doing a fantastic job.

We were very happy to have found this place. Away from the busy Main Street with a breathtaking view over the lagoon itself. The sunset was the prettiest that I have seen during our trip.

We only stayed there one night but wish we're staying longer. The views we had were outstanding. The service was great and the owners very friendly and accommodating. The property was very well kept and had everything we needed.
