This guesthouse is very charming, has a nice pool with wonderful view on the Plettenberg Lagoon. We had a small room but there are rooms with a perfect view. Breakfast was great and the service very good. Safe area and very close to the centre....More

This place is faithful to its name. A great view of the ocean and the Plettenberg Bay. Very close to great restaurants and shops, and to the beach. You cannot miss the wave jumping (or surfing if you dare) on the beach a few steps...More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and had a good stay. The decor is beautiful and attention to detail impressive. The view from the balcony was stunning too. Whilst we enjoyed it the downside is that the rooms are small and quite noisy....More

Amazingly well located with great view of the coast. Comfortable rooms, good shower, and very welcoming common areas (including a deck and a pool). Breakfast was also good and really friendly staff. I wish i could stayed longer.
