The ambiance at the guesthouse was tranquil and Luc & Sue was excellent hosts! Will definitely recommend it and will return for sure! Thank you for a very...

Definitely the number one place to relax and forget about your "real" life. Our room was private and modern with a great ocean view. Every time when you return to your room someone restocked all the supplies and placed some chockies on the pillows :) Friendly Reception ... No complaints!!!

Booked a room 4 months in advance and a day later my plans changed so I amended the booking to stay one night earlier than planned. The booking site sent me confirmation immediately and all was well (at the time). I turned up at the guesthouse on the day as per my amended booking to be told they don't have...

Dear Garhard As you know when you arrived we only had the back-up and notification for your arrival the next day. While you waited with refreshments that we offered you, we tried to sort out the problem. The only accommodation we could find in the area was at the Hotel situated close by. We do apologise that the accommodation at...

A fantastic B&B excellently run by Sue and Luc with a guaranteed warm welcome. Set in a private resort at the very tip of of the point and in a very quiet part only the sound of waves break the silence. The views are pretty amazing too. There is a long beach nearby for amazing romantic walks. Because the accommodation...

We stayed here for one night on our way back down to Cape Town. We had one of the ground floor rooms, with direct access to the beach. Beautiful room, beautiful guest house and the most amazing breakfast. And what made it extra special is that we got engaged right outside on the dunes! Will definitely go again! By far...
