The hosts were very friendly and advised well when it came to dealing with the locals. Their customer service was amazing and we felt very welcome. The room was also nice and tidy and the breakfast was delicious.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night and I would have been happy to stay longer. Roger and Leonie were very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the family suite which met our requirements. The lodge is in easy walking distance to the beach.

We went for the old world charm of the antique/colonial style room which was very...

Thanks so much for making my stay unforgettable. From the minute I arrived, till the time I drove out the drive-way. This morning I woke at home and the first thing I missed was the awesome breakfast. I will definitely return !

The hosts were extremely warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Roger (1 of our hosts) even washed our windows before we left after travelling on all the dirt roads. They also gave us guidance on where to go in and around Coffee Bay and sent us detailed instructions on how to get there without damaging the car...

We travelled from Johannesburg to Coffee Bay and Roger sent us notes to explain road conditions, dos and don'ts and what to expect which turned out to be very very accurate. The property as such is basic and clean. We felt comfortable. Roger was extremely helpful and provided excellent information about the area, roads, attractions, eateries. Also Roger and his...

We stayed over for two nights and we wished we could stay longer. The owners were very nice and helpful. I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone traveling to Coffee Bay, the service was exceptional. It is value for money and we will definitely be going back.
