I would throughly recommend Aquavit, I have been visiting South Africa for most of my life and this was really a memorable experience, even though we only stayed one night (we had to move on for safari after!) Linda and Ole couldn't do more for us and have a beautiful house and we really appreciated the elegant decor and all...

This was our first trip to South Africa, and we stayed at Aquavit for one night on our way up the Garden Route. We soon realized we should have stayed longer, and kicked ourselves for spending the night before in a hotel in Cape Town when we could have enjoyed a second night at Linda and Ole's beautiful house. The...

Superb in every way - the view,breakfast on the terrace,our hosts Linda and Ole. Quality of the room excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The recommendations for where to eat were also most useful - our meals at Zinzi and Emily Moon were the best we experienced in South Africa. We left wishing we had stayed for more than...

We stayed with Ole & Linda for the 2nd time for 4 nights in February and once again the welcome was warm, the accommodation fantastic as are the breakfasts, the location great. We've stayed at quite a few guest houses in SA the three times we have been and I can honestly say Aquavit is the best. As a previous...

Linda and Ole were good hosts. Innocent was lovely as well. Friendly and attentive service. Beautiful and comfortable accommodation. Delicious breakfast. Five star standard for sure. We were only there for one night and loved it.

It is very difficult to say anything that hasn't already been said by other reviewers. I read some of these reviews before travelling to South Africa and thought to myself "things can't really be this good". Well I was wrong. The reality is even better. Although rated as 4 star, this feels like 6 star. Designed and built only 4...

This was our fourth stay at Aquavit. Linda, Ole and the staff always make us us so welcome. The breakfasts are a gourmet delight - to die for. The view of the ocean and river estuary is amazing. The rooms are very tastefully furnished, spotless and superbly maintained. Highly recommended base to explore all that the garden route has to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week holiday in South Africa recently and had an amazing time but the 3 nights we stayed at the Aquavit Guest House were something we won’t forget in a hurry. In the past we have preferred to stay in luxury hotels so this was a first for us to stay in a guest house but...

Linda and Ole really make you feel at home. They look after their guest from the first second until the last one! We spent 5 days at Aquavit and would have even liked to stay longer if our itinerary would have allowed. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated, the view to the beach amazing and the breakfast delicious. We got a...

Probably the finest Guest House experience we have ever had. As has previously been noted, the attention to detail is truly awesome. The building is a combination of great design, great decor, and art gallery. The view from the rooms and pool area is magnificent, and encourages the guest to remain 'at home' and enjoy the ambiance and the facilities....
