We absolutely loved our stay and did not want to leave but after two days we feel so relaxed and recharged. The views are breathtaking and the space is tranquil. Sue and Luc, the hosts are welcoming and accommodating. What more do you want? We will be back very soon. The Oystercatchers lodge has stolen my heart.

We stayed here three nights and it was faultless. We had a lovely room with double aspect windows . The room was tasteful with a good bathroom with bath and shower cubicle. The hosts Luc and Sue are perfect , attentive but not obtrusive. They stay on the premises, which is not always the case in South African Guest houses...

What a wonderful location right on the end of the peninsula with stunning sea views. From the breakfast area we saw a whale and whilst walking along the beach towards the lighthouse we came across a family of seals. Walk in the opposite direction and there is a very long sweeping beach with white sands and crystal clear waters. The...

We spent 3 days here in this beautiful setting by the sea. Our room was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. There is an honor bar if you'd like a cocktail while you watch the sunset from the patio. The hospitality shown by Sue and Luk was par excellence!

Thank you to Sue and Luc for their discreet professionalism. The room (and particularly the view of the beach and sea) were beautiful. Going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the sea was so relaxing. The breakfast was delicious, and freshly cooked to order.
