I took my parents to stay at the Seaweed cottage (self-contained) from 12th-16th December. The most spectacular thing about this cottage is the magnificent panoramic view. Our best memories are sitting on the porch having breakfast/lunch/supper watching the ever-changing sea. We saw large pods of dolphins twice. Our hostess (Robyn) was excellent in terms of attentiveness and recommendations of where...

Stayed in Seaweed cottage, which overlooks a stunning rocky coastline. The cottage was perfect for a family of five, with shopping facilities close by. I can't decide which was more amazing: the sea views and the dolphins, or Robyn Evans, our hostess. A truly gracious, helpful and charming lady. Full of stories and recommendations, she was brilliant with our kids....

I needed some down time and being young woman on my own, i was in search of a secure place where i could spend some solo time without worrying about my safety. Not only was Sea Notes a secure place but its situation in Seaview, just above some rock pools, offered a breath taking view. I will never forget sitting...

We spent three nights at Seaweed cottage. It is well equipped and spacious with a magnificent view of the ocean from all rooms. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking up each morning to dolphins swimming past, really makes it the perfect getaway spot.

Sitting on the terass with the ocean waves tumbling in and watching the dolphines play is absolutly awesome. Seanotes is an outstanding place to be at, clean fresh and nice. Robyn, the hostess, does everything in her power to make you feel like home. Despite that I would like to have it as my personal secret heaven, I have to...

Stayed at Seanotes for 4 days while visiting South Africa. We were put in the Oyster Room, which consists of 1 large bedroom, plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space; bathroom & shower was spacious. Bath towels were supplied as well as tea, coffee, sugar and a bottle of wine. Robyn is a very friendly lady, she has 10 dogs who are just...

This idyllic guest house is one I really look forward getting to on my many tours with guests through South Africa. Robyn (and the dogs) are the most perfect hosts and the units are "like home"...everything you need, and a little extra! Home baked rusks are always put out for us. The view from the rooms is awesome...you sit on...

Spent another idyllic weekend at Sea Notes last weekend. Robyn and her offspring could not be more welcoming. Few places are as good for the soul as this. Thanks once again. Oyster Is so well kitted out and we had everything that we needed and more.

This is the most wonderful find in the Eastern cape. The view, the dolphins the rock pools and not forgetting the dogs, they made our holiday so special, I could just go on and on. Swimming in the rock pools with Mia and Sachmo, 2 of Robyn's dogs is an experience on its own. So special. Our room "The Oyster...
