Anneke upgraded us to Spindrift (family suite) which was spacious for the wheelchair and which we appreciated. If you like the beachyfide look then this place is for you. Good for summer holidays. Found the rooms cold in May. Basics are provided and very clean. No secure parking on the premises as the gates are left open. There are enough...

Anneke was so accommodating and even upgraded us to a bigger room (Sandspray) which for the two of us was more than big enough. Had everything we needed! I was slightly worried that it would be too much of a 'family' self catering but it felt private and chilled and perfect for a couple's spot. So close to beach, restaurants...

What a nice friendly place . Marc could not have been more helpful and relaxed even though we arrived early. Our room was charming although the bathroom door wouldn't close and we had to ask for the electricity to be switched on!

Have just had our 3rd trip to stay here with Marc and Anneke who are wonderful hosts. Stayed for 1 month self catering with the occasional breakfast (who can resist Anneke's cooking!!) Welcoming, comfortable, uncomplicated and in such a convenient position. We will certainly return - I would highly recommend Sandriver to one and all. I would describe their style...

We stopped at St Francis Bay on a garden route tour from PE to George and stayed at Sandriver Lodge for a night. The owners are super friendly, making us feel welcome and ensuring that we know our way around... The lodge nicely situated, only a few minutes walk to the beach and with shops around. The rooms were clean...

I wish we had stayed longer! We arrived in St Francis Bay for one night, after a very disappointing 2 nights in Mossel Bay. We immediately wished that we'd spent the whole time at Sandriver Lodge. The village itself is beautiful and peaceful, and the Lodge is a great welcome to the area. Mark welcomed us warmly and we spent...

Walk 200m to the beach, 100m to the golf course, across to the shops and restaurants, tennis and squash courts.We have a garden 'cafe' where delicious breakfasts are served, and dinners on request.Newly renovated with a tiled roof, we have gone back to the "beginning" of St Francis Bay with the rustic feel of fisherman cottages. Copper pipes are exposed against bagged white walls, with sea shells in the plaster, sand coloured tiled floors and the relaxed feel of St Francis Bay. Sandriver Lodge offers uniquely styled and set up accommodation to suit many different needs.
