I stayed here for one night with two friends on a visit to Plettenberg Bay. Everything about this place was lovely. It's on a gated estate with its own beach - we spotted dolphins playing in the surf. The rooms are clean and amazingly comfortable, I had such a great night's sleep there. The top floor of the main house...

The place is spotless. It is like no other hostel I have ever stayed in. It so clean and beautiful - we...

Wonderful house on a very nice location. Rooms are perfectly clean and bright, with your own door to the garden. The top floor has a large communal area (in- and outdoor) and a very complete and neat kitchen.

It has been probably the most beautifull backpackers we stayed at. Wonderfull house, clean, perfect bed, beautifull surroundings and the beach just around the corner. But the owner of the house doesn't fit in this nice experience. Everywhere in South Africa people were so nice and friendly and unfortenately we experienced a very unplesant feeling during our stay. It really...

We too stopped by on the long drive from cpt east. The hosts were very friendly and recommended a great restaurant (enrico's) for dinner. The room was clean and supplied almost everything needed. However it was a fairly chilly night and also fairly chilly in the room, the heater only helped this somewhat. The only other negative is that a...

If you are with children (maybe even more baby), better not stopping there if you're looking for a friendly guest. Such a pity, as the location is beautiful, all clean and nice. Near by a quiet, clean beach (that's why we picked this one for our baby to play).

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Plett and loved it. The house is amazing and we had a super room with a balcony at each end! The kitchen, lounge and rooftop patio were beautifully furnished and equipped. The pool and area were a little tired but the beach was amazing. We found Grant a little offhand but don't...

Boutique Backpackers describes this place well. The kitchen, sitting and deck areas are very airy and stylish. The beach is nearby although it is not a great swimming beach and there is a pool to dip in. What really set this pace apart for me was the wonderful quality of the mattress and bed linen. It was really really really...

We only stayed briefly, late in and early out but we were so impressed by the standard of this backpackers. Far more like a beautiful guesthouse. Super clean, fresh as well as helpful and friendly owners. Highly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Abalone Beach House is only 50 meters from Keurbooms beach, the best whale and dolphin watching beach on the Garden Route, in a private access controlled estate just ten minutes from the centre of Plettenberg Bay. If you need a break from the usual noisy, overcrowded backpacker scene then this Beach House is the perfect indulgent getaway. Kick back on the sun deck and marvel at the spectacular 360 degree views. With just four 'luxury' rooms at backpacker rates Abalone is a small boutique lodge with an intimate feel where you won't need to blow your budget to enjoy a little comfort. There are loads of things to do in the area as the location offers the option of a quiet relaxing retreat, an action packed adrenalin adventure, a real African safari experience or a combination of all three. ... more   less

“Our room was the only one outside the main building with an ensuite bathroom. We liked it, it did not have a balcony or deck, though. If you would like to spend time outside on your private deck, make sure you get a room that has one.”
