Camped for 3 nights, very nice place, but because it is so close to the sea the winds are extremely strong and the tent does not want to stay up. There is no good spot to anchor your tent properly, as a result these winds keep pulling out the tent pens.

This backpacker left us with a bitter taste. First of all, it was the priciest backpacker we'd seen in ZA (200R per dorm, in low season). We didn't have a lot of options (the other backpacker was full) so we decided to take two beds.Apparently they had a nice "Pixie & Fairy Village/garden" accessible, but we had to pay an extra 30R to visit (which we did not want to pay). I would have expected it to be included in the price of the accommodation. But well…

We arrived in the middle of the afternoon and, right after paying, the reception closed and the staff was nowhere to be found.

At some point, we decided to start cooking our dinner (with another couple) and someone finally came to check on us. It seemed to be the owners. Great! The woman asked if everything was alright but didn't even care to listen to any of our answers. She preferred to strongly insist on the fact that the place was safe: when you don't initially feel threatened, this kind of behavior makes you wonder what is there to fear…

Once we finished eating, the lights in the courtyard never went on and we had to walk back to our room with our smartphones. Maybe we didn't pay the option "garden lightens at night"...

To finish on a positive note though, we had a room of 6 for ourselves and did sleep well.

My friend and I stayed in the stone house, which is a cozy room with a double and a single bed. The shared bathrooms are clean and in good condition, and the kitchen is very well equipped. We had the choice of several braai areas, some very communal and one more private. Trish and Marcel are so welcoming and friendly and we had a great time sharing a braai - Marcel even brought out his guitar. Animal lovers will adore the friends dogs. The pixie garden is beautifully crafted - a labour of love indeed.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and always being available. We are definitely coming back.

Coming there with no expectations and just happy about a place to stay, I was totally overwhelmed and surprised by this gorgeous little place, where you feel like far away from any negativity.
Not only the many private little areas, where you can braai, set up a hammock, have a fire, watch a movie etc. the people who run it (thanks again Trish) make it complete.

I can only recommend to stop by on your travel and experience the vibe yourself!!!

Give Willy a little pet from me :)

I spend the Easter weekend with my girlfriend at the backpackers and was pleasantly surprise with this little paradise on the West Coast. The staff were friendly, professional and very helpful. I can certainly recommend this awesome place to any traveler and definitely plan to go there again!
