We are lucky enough to spend time every year at Fynbos Ridge. We stay in one of the beautiful cottages which now feels like a home from home. Most visitors spend a few days there " doing the Garden Route" fair enough, but there is much to see and do around and the owners are skilled in their suggestions. The eating out is great too and Brian is quite a chef if you want dinner in the country house or brought down to the cottage.
This property has everything, seclusion, beautiful surroundings, a small pool, bird life, pet pigs and dogs! And most of all exceptionally high standards set by the owners and maintained by the staff.
Thanks to Mel for all those reservations, thanks to the staff who service the cottage and a big fan thank you to Brian and Liz for running such a paradise.

We stayed in the apartment. It was really spacious, comfortable and well equipped for a self catering place. Friendly welcome and beautiful location, A good base for exploring Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.

Beautiful views, comfortable beds and fynbos trails brimming with birds. Friendly service, well maintained and very clean. A must visit and stay for more than a week because there is lots to see. They also have two pet pigs that are cute & naughty.
Highly recommend!!! :)

Fynbos Ridge exceeded our expectations. During our 4 night stay, hosts, Mel, Liz and Brian were so welcoming, friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived. The beautiful location, hidden away down a long drive was an unexpected surprise. Although initially allocated to one of the more isolated cottages, our hosts enabled us to transfer to the main house with two spacious adjoining bedrooms for myself and two daughters. There was a wonderful homely feel to the main house and a comfortable elegance to the rooms. We had leisurely delicious breakfasts individually prepared by our hosts. At the end of the day the tea and cake was a real treat which we had sitting on the wide verandah overlooking the beautiful gardens. Brian, Mel and Liz's hospitality at Fynbos Ridge and help with evening taxis and a winery visit made our stay in Plettenberg Bay the highpoint of our holiday in South Africa.

We returned to lovely Fynbos Ridge for a third visit this Christmas.
Once again had a fabulous stay in one of the cottages, perfect for our family of five.
The grounds, swimming pool & views are gorgeous. Mel, Liz & Brian are fab hosts.
We love the location so close to bustling Plett, but so quiet & tranquil.
We have already planned to return next December.
