“Wonderful”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Finding such a beautiful home above the Kleinemonde River was a real treat and we had a wonderful stay at Westend House. Anja and Anne were extremely helpful and we will be returning again. We loved the entire experience and the birding was great as well. Ten Stars

“Wonderful home, amazing views - don't look any further!”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stunning home, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Surrounded by lush vegetation, situated on the Kleinemonde with a distant ocean view from the porch. Great views, great vacation. Can spend my entire life living there!

“Stunning House”
Reviewed 17 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Westend. The house is very comfortable with the most stunning views from the Balcony. Bird lovers will be in their element. The views from the bathrooms are even beautiful and it is the perfect home to relax with optimum comfort for big families. The Entertainment area is works perfectly and there are 2 places to sit (front or back) to protect for unwanted weather. The maid Florrie is an absolute star and we can't wait for our next visit.

“Great house with lots of room”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here for a few days - and hosted a couple of family reunions here.
The house is large, spacious and very comfortable. There are 2 terraces (on different levels) overlooking the river (with sea views in the distance) and a large patio with barbeque and outside dining space. Opening up the large sliding doors links the patio to the house and to the terrace.
The only gripe was with the condition of some of the kitche fittings and utensils. A house this size really needs more plates, cups, bowls etc. and cooking pots etc. to suit large groups. Some of what there was quite elderly, battered or worn out.
Overall - a great experience. We would hesitate to recommend this house to others, especially for the larger group.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Westend House. I must sincerely apologise for the state of the kitchen utensils - these have all been replaced now. We replace them every year before Christmas, so you just missed the new sets, but we will do this more frequently from now on. I really wish you had let us know that you needed more crockery and kitchenware - we could have organised you whatever you needed in a flash. We would also have pointed out the extra sets in the small kitchen downstairs - and topped you up with all the spares in our store room. We take our guests comments very seriously, but as nobody has ever complained about this before we are very sorry it was not as you had wished. We have now added another set of crockery to the main kitchen.

Please could you clarify for the readers of your review if you would or would not hesitate to recommend us - I suspect a typo in your last sentence, as you gave us 4 stars, and say its a great experience. If you would indeed hesitate to recommend us then please do let us know what else we must improve.

We hope to host you again!

Kind Regards,

Anja and Etienne Albertyn

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The initial wow factor quickly evaporated at this house on the lagoon after we found it to be in serious need of a good clean. The fridge had residue of mouldy food and the ovens were full of grease as were the work survices. We had to wash all crockery,cutlery and cooking utensils before we could use them. As soon as we plugged in the kettle it blew the electrics,luckly the manager was there when this happened,iron was found in bits in the garage there was gheko dirt everywhere. We were a party of 4 mature adults and the only thing we could rave about was the view over the lagoon and the peaceful setting.

We are horrified to hear of your experience with a dirty kitchen. We take cleanliness very seriously, especially since we pay for and rely on professional cleaners. What bad luck that the iron and kettle had to blow almost at the same time, but I am glad our manager immediately replaced them both for you. We are really very sorry that this made you title your entire stay a disappointment, and hope you still managed to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the place as much as others.
