I LOVED our cosy white bedroom and balcony! The view of the sea was incredible and the beach was within walking distance. Thank you to Barbara and Terry for their warm hospitality - I'm so happy we chose Gilcrest Place! Can't wait to return.

We stayed with Barbara and Terry for just one night in their Lookout Suite on our way south to Cape Town. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated in nautical blues and whites. From the outset, Barbara answered all my emails in a most prompt and helpful manner. That gave me great confidence that we would be well looked after...

We had a beautiful room with an excellent view of the coast. The room was tastefully decorated with a nautical theme- the arrangement of the room was very different but perfect. Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night but Barbara had contacted us before our arrival to ask if we required dinner booking. She booked us at the Die Gaatjie- this...

My husband and I stayed here in February for a friends' wedding and it was gorgeous. Beautiful views, charming hosts and a really lovely setting - great for walks on the beach and exploring the coast.

Barbara & Terry Gilpin are "naturals" in this business. Their warmth of welcome, attention to detail and the comfort afforded by their good taste in furnishing made our stay far too brief. Next year- much longer; thank you both.
