As so many have said in their reviews, this guest house is an absolute gem.
1. The rooms are immaculate, as are the interior common areas and grounds
2. The food was excellent, on all counts. A guest house which serves dinner to order, and until 8pm at night, is unheard of. A big thumbs up and thank you for looking after all my needs (including a request for a glass at wine at 8 at night)
3. Each room has a balcony or patio which is a lovely extension of your room-space
4. The pool, lounging area and outside deck is amazing. Loved spending time there.
5. Even on the day where they were fully occupied, it didn't feel overcrowded at all. Impressive that you can find your own spot and get comfortable (they only have 7? rooms)
6. The staff are really exceptional in accommodating requests and deserve a good tip when you check out
7. Ample parking available without any stresses about finding a space when you return after a day out
8. There are so many small items which makes a stay comfortable (in-room fridge which is already prepared with cold drinks and water, large room, comfortable bed, many TV channels to choose from, dedicated smoking areas which includes your balcony or patio, aircon, safe, mosquito spray and so many more).
Some constructive comments (as I do in all reviews):
1. The afternoon sun is tough to handle if you use the loungers. Maybe some canvas rollers you can extend down to create some shade may be helpful?
2. Even with 1 pax in the room, it's unusual (and a bit uncomfortable) to have only 1 bath towel (bath sheet size) available. This could be a water-saving measure, which is why I didn't comment on it
3. Know that the beach is a 2 min drive or brisk 15 min walk away. It's a fantastic beach though and with the pool and quality of the guest house you're enjoying it's a non-issue
As far as guest houses go in South Africa, this must be one of the best I've seen.
Highly recommended - there is no way you'll be disappointed.
