It's not a luxury resort but comfortable with big rooms, swimming pool, ... The only fault for me is the lack of Internet signal in...

I was there, one week ago. The staff at Agulhas House are very friendly and try to make your stay there as easy as posible. The house is very clean and tidy. Brett, Vegard, Búfalo, Michelle and all the people there help you to have a nice stay at Umkoomas and enjoying awsome dives with shaks.

Agulhas House made us feel right at home from the word go. The owners and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Boat skipper and dive masters are very capable and outgoing with good sense of humour. Aliwal Shoal also surprised us with ragged tooth sharks, turtles, huge potato bass, brindle bass and plenty of colourful fish. We also saw dolphins...

This is a great dive centre, near a great reef to dive, and a lovely guest house to stay at. I tend to travel alone, so it's important finding a place that foster a community spirit, and I really found that here when I came for the August long weekend. Aside from all of the things which you kind of...

Brett and Sonia makes this place a home away from home, and this is also reflected by their staff, from the dive team, to the boys and girls looking after the place. Everyone is friendly and made us feel very welcomed from the first time we came last year, and it is consistent for our second visit this year. The...

On my first visit to Africa ever i visited Agulhas House for several days of diving before heading down south to the sardine run. And because it was so nice i came back for some more days after the run. Again without regret.
