Tamodi Lodge & Stables, luxury guest accommodation in Plettenberg bay was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of a love for horses and the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Tsitsikamma coast. Joined by Chelsea, Owen’s daughter, and her husband, Scott, this family-run lodge encompasses everything that a family should ~ peace, relaxation, happiness and love. This passion is reflected in every aspect of the farm, from the carefully designed main house, two free-standing honeymoon suites, the two free-standing luxury suites and stable buildings, which blend with the bush and natural environment. The setting is peaceful and relaxing, offering 7 luxury suites to enjoy and unwind in, it is perfectly positioned for a holiday in the Garden Route. We provide a full breakfast, but suggest lunch and dinner at one of the fine Plett restaurants. Keurbooms beach is just 5 minutes away, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the bay.

What an amazing place is the Tamodi Lodge! We were totally surprised by the accommodations and blow away by the comfort and relaxation. I wish I had booked a longer stay this time but will definitely book several days next time we come to SA and use this as a great home base from which to enjoy so many wonderful things South Africa has to offer. Just perfect! And look at that sunrise!! Thank you Chelsea and family for building such a blessed place as the Tamodi Lodge at Plettenberg Bay.

We will definitely be back ! During our honeymoon we decided to spend three nights at one of the Lux honey moon suites in Tamodi Lodge. Only a few min highway drive away from downtown Plattenberg, we had one of our best experiences. The room is huge, the view just stunning (seeing the sun rise above the mountains every morning was magical) and your privacy wqs ensured during all the stay. Chelsea was reachable anytime through WhatsApp if we needed anything. Her wine recommandations were always good. The fire place makes the room so cosy and romantic. We even used the little un-heated pool on the balcony since the sun was getting really hot during the day ! The fridge was filled with a lot of very good food to make our own breakfast which we loved since we could just enjoy being lazy in the room in the morning. If we were running out of anything Chelsea would bring what we need and leave it in the lobby outside of the room to ensure not disturbing us. How thoughtful ! Did I forget to mention how comfy the bed was and how clean the place is maintained ? Definitely a place to experience : luxury, calm, amazing view, professionalism, kindness, good wine… do not miss it if you go to Plattenberg Bay !

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Tamodi so much. What’s not to love? Fantastic location, stunning view, lots of space and privacy. Very well equipped room. My only issue was getting up onto the bed. Being quite short, the bed is very high off the ground.

When you wake up, open the drapes and go back to bed, it will seem like you are floating above the trees. It really is an amazing feeling. The ladies who come in the morning to make sure your stay is without any problems and you don't have to wrry about picking up after yourself. Chelsea and Owen are only a call away of you need your help. It was absolutely a magnicifent stay.

Truly one of the best properties we have been to in South Africa. Chelsea maintained great communication, was very welcoming and helpful throughout our 4 night stay. On arrival we were led to a beautiful lodge with a stunning view. The accommodation was large with terrific amenities, very well furnished and tastefully decorated. The bumpy track off the main road to get here is well worth it.

The place was great with perfect views and connect to the nature. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a hide out to catch a breath and find peace. Very good service and friendly Chelsea, even while organizing she assisted and responded quickly to my enquiries. The room was very spaceous comfy, happy place. I was disappointed witb the tiny POOL, at least make it a hot bath. There're no facilities (stove) to make any food yet they don't cater.

Loved our stay here! Would definitely recommend a minimum of two nights 🤩 The rooms are lovely and big and to be honest I would have preferred to spend more time just chilling in our room. Can't wait to go again!

I can’t believe we’ve only discovered Tamodi now after all these years! It’s a jewel. Beautifully detailed very large rooms with en-suite lounges, decks and pools that look out over the most magnificent views back on to the mountains. At dusk you will see where Pierneef got his inspiration. The whole farm is impeccably maintained with fine attention to detail. And what’s more, Enrico’s restaurant is at the bottom of the hill, what a treat.

My husband and I stayed here in January 2019. So this is a little late. I'm sure it's every bit as wonderful though. First thing's first. We were only booked in for a one night's stay as a stop-over during our Garden Route road trip. Well, after one night we decided that we really ought to stay another to make sure that we didn't dream how spectacular it all was! The views outside of the adjacent valley were incredible, I felt like I was in a tree house. A plunge pool and an outdoor shower gave our stay added experiences we will not soon forget. This place is really special and the staff and owners are so welcoming that you feel a part of something. We have recommended Tamodi to all of our friends in South Africa and the UK.
