Great place with a stunning view. Hostages are very friendly, have many good hints about what to do or where to eat. Breakfast is incredible delicious and most of it homemade and not to forget the wine assortment! Thank you for some wonderful days during our jouney.

Crayfish Lodge was the perfect start to our Western Cape vacation. The house is an architectural treat - with spectacular views, great space and atmosphere. Sandra is bubbling with positive energy and ideas for nearby activities. The two Panorama Suites were the right solution for our group of 2 couples. We flew in to Capetown International and took the coastal...
