“Home from home”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

That Place was our place to chill out and relax during our trip to South Africa. This comfortable self-catering house was a respite from timetables of lodges and more akin to a home-from-home where we immediately felt at ease, with a warm welcome from the owner who lives nearby.

The living, dining and kitchen areas are open plan. The property is very well-equipped, including a washing machine (though no tumble dryer). Our winter visit meant we made good use of the fireplace every evening, as well as the hot water bottles! A house-keeping service was provided daily (not Sundays).

Two bedrooms are readily accessible from the main living areas with a 3rd being reached via an external staircase. The 2nd bedroom deserves special mention as it is ideal for primary age children, with a multitude of toys, dressing up clothes, games, books etc. Our children described it as 'paradise'. These same children were happy to jump in the unheated pool on a sunny winter day! There are several outdoor sitting and dining areas which must be delightful in summer.

There are numerous filled bookcases with a variety of reading material, and a good selection of DVDs. The modern Sony TV has a USB port and will play mp4 formatted videos from a memory stick.

The owner has prepared a file of useful information and also provided some personal eating recommendations for the Bramon Wine Estate and Enrico's - both of which turned out to be excellent.

The property is only 20 mins drive from Plettenberg Bay and ideally located for exploring attractions in The Crags, as well as other places in the vicinity. Highly recommended.
