We had a very nice 2 nights stay. A wonderful room with the pool just outside our bedroom. The sea and the waves and the wind were our neighbors. The friendly and warm atmosphere also made our visit exceptional. Great breakfast in the morning.

Superb views right on the ocean, extremely well appointed, immaculately clean rooms, with attention to detail and sumptuous breakfast, with a friendly and welcoming hostess, made this a perfect stay. A quiet seaside town with a surprisingly great choice of restaurants.

House is very nicely decorated, offers very good breakfast, staff is very friendly, with a good restaurant nearby (The Cork), and we especially loved the nearby Kogelberg Biosphere reserve for a hike and swim in the Palmiet river

Lovely for couples. We booked a jacuzzi suite which was lovely but when we got there it was very windy and there was smoke from the wildfires which meant that we couldn’t open the doors. This made the room very stuffy and hot as there was no A/C which made it not nice to sleep in. It was a nice stay just disappointed about the A/C and no room fan.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Marine over Christmas. Our room, no.7, was most spacious and well appointed with a great sea view. I liked the generosity of towels and the toiletries supplied. Breakfasts were delicious and there is a great choice. I enjoyed the interesting artwork and even bought a painting to bring home!

I loved this property! Stayed in Room 3. I’m a writer so it was a perfect spot for some inspirational peace and quiet. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The breakfast is spot on. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all then this is it.

We had such a wonderful time at Villa Marine. The location of the property and the building itself is stunning. The staff took great care of us. The breakfast was definitely a highlight! We saw lots of flora and fauna just by being in Pringle Bay. We did several hikes and rented bikes from a shop in town. If you’re just up for relaxing, it’s the perfect place to do that too!!
