A hidden gem in the heart of Plett with sweeping views of the lagoon and Lookout Beach! Very peaceful retreat with sparkling, clean pool and spotless house. My family and I enjoyed a great holiday with Gisela, our proud hostess, who serves us delicious breakfasts on the patio daily. A short walk to Lookout Beach and the lagoon, away from... More

We enjoyed our stay in Tanah Merah in april 2014. From the house you have a magnificent view over the bay. The car was parked safely next to the house within the secured surface. The rooms and lounge are very beautiful and you have everything you wish and need. Our host, mrs von Wedel, was always ready to inform us,... More

Arriving at TM after a horrendous flight, we were able to relax immediately. Our ground floor accommodation was wonderful - spacious and immaculate, and with immediate access to the excellent pool. Vivi and Gisela were everything good hosts should be - welcoming, helpful (especially re visits, eating out etc), charming etc etc. The TM was delightful and the garden and... More

After a fantastic stay in 2006 we decided to come back in 2007. And again we enjoyed the beautiful environment from Tanah Merah. The two larger rooms with sea view are spacious and tastefully decorated. Perfect with the en-suite bathrooms, a small fridge and large windows with direct access to the balcony and pool-area. The morning starts with a delicious... More

This was the fourth year that we stayed with Gisela and Vivi. They are wonderful hosts and Tanah Merah is a beautiful house overlooking the Lagoon at Plet. Vivi's garden will make your mouth water and the poolside an oasis on a hot day. We have travelled extensively and rarely had such an enjoyable holiday, even at top class hotels.... More

A great place to stay: allow at least 4 nights. It is a large modern upmarket house in a residential road of similar properties about 1 mile from centre of Plett.
