Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Private, spacious, clean and well equipped house. Received friendly, good service.
Situated in a very quite nature area. Very central, ideal to use as a base to visit the whole of the Garden Route area.

Highly recommended. We were amazed to find this jewel on such a beautiful piece of coastline. The chalet was very clean. The host Marie was very friendly. The whole resort was magnificently kept and tidy. We will definitely visit again and spend more time exploring the hikes around the area. We walked down the many steps to the ocean and watched dolphins playing close to shore.
