We booked the Ah guesthouse as part of our month trip to SA, and the three nights we spent there ranked very high indeed. Arnold and Annalise have that knack of making people very welcome and relaxed, and having guests eat at the big table makes for some interesting conversations over breakfast. The meals produced by Arnold I would say...

Arnold and Annalise were very welcoming to their home and guest house. They both, clearly, have a natural gift for making people feel welcomed and at ease. The room which was in the eaves of the house and finished in thatch on the outside was cool and beautifully appointed with all the conveniences one could wish for. It lead onto...

Returned once again to stay with Arnold and Annalise. Their standards seem to get better. The rooms are traditional yet quirky and modern, beds supremely comfortable, bathrooms very modern and well equipped. It is a wonderful guest house, in a great location, with terrific hosts. Try and book when Arnold is cooking dinner. The "long table", where everyone sits together,...

We had the large room at the front which was perfect and very comfortable. Breakfast is an experience not to be missed and if you can have an evening meal - DO. Arnold is a superb chef and he and Annelize make every meal a special occasion. My friends had stayed there in 2013 and highly recommended it and I...

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated with lots of art. Our room had a king size bed and was also beautifully decorated, serviced every day. It is very peaceful and perfect for a good night sleep. We could not have diner at the guesthouse since they just returned home from a well deserved holiday the same day. This means we have...

Words failed us! Everything and more! Well deserved excellent ratings. The most wonderful hosts and private dining by Arnold is a MUST, probably the best meal we've ever had, the preparation and casual chat was all part of the experience. A real pleasure and many thanks, definitely returning. Many many thanks Miles & Jan x

Had three delightful nights here staying in the very pretty Aha room which is downstairs with irs own little patio. Arnold and Annelize are perfect hosts looking after your every need. As others say the breakfasts are amazing and I loved the French toasts with ice cream every morning. On Sunday we enjoyed one of Arnold's "long tables". A true...

In one word: PERFECT! Lovely decorated & furnished rooms (I recommend aaah-room, a king/twin upstairs with facing the terrace and the ocean), wonderful house and hosts and a really charming village with some cute shops and restaurants. Incredibly yummy breakfast (handmade icecream for dessert) and: if you have the opportunity to join an evening when Arnold is cooking for his...

This guest house is a must for everybody who loves a special breakfast. A big salute to the chef. The rooms very comfortable and clean, with a perfect view. A short distance walk towards the sea, for the early birds.
