The room, the view, the breakfast, the professionalism and warmth of Mara & Anneline: everything was more than awesome!

Last but not least: the friendly hug on departure: shivers! On our next visit to Mossel Bay: no need to search for a place to stay.

What a wonderful experience - from check-in to when we left, you made us feel like long-lost friends. The attention to detail, high standards and all the extra touches you put in to the room and breakfast made this an exceptional stay. Look forward to staying with you again and will definitely recommend.

We very much enjoyed our stay here - overlooks a quiet bay ... we watched dolphins from our balcony, and enjoyed watching the sun go down with a glass of wine. Mara and Annaline were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. There is a convenient free shuttle to restaurants in the nearby main town of Mosel Bay.

Very pleasant guesthouse in quiet location, much further from Mossel Bay than expected. The house is built on a steep hill and has many levels and staircases. It would be helpful to people if the description mentioned this. The bedroom was comfortable although small. Gaby was charming and very helpful. The shuttle to restaurants was very welcome after along day in Oudtshoorn.

We were made to feel very welcome from the off, the room is comfortable and has everything you would need. The views out to the ocean and beach are wonderful and the beach is less than a 2 min drive.

Gaby our host was great and the added bonus was Google, Chutney and Max. Would definitely recommend staying at L & L it's close enough to Mossel bay but in a better area.

All you need at a reasonable price, highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Lilies and Leopards for 3 nights at the beginning of January this year, and cannot wait to go back!

The room was beautiful, and spotless, with a very comfortable bed. The view was exquisite. Our room was equipped with everything we needed - even down to a hairdryer and little box at back of dressing table holding Grandpa powders and Panado tablets:)

A highlight of our visit to Dana Bay was watching the sunset at the main beach and seeing the buck in the valley below the house.

The breakfast was a treat, the service was excellent, and Gabby was very helpful and a pleasure to chat to.

We would definitely not hesitate to visit Lilies and Leopards again, and this time hope to be able to stay longer.

Lynne and Peter Smith.

The 4 star rating of Lilies and Leopards is just not high enough! This is such a special place that you want to keep it a secret. Our one night stay ended up in two. We were welcomed by Nellie who was charming and most hospitable. We met Karin, the owner, a little later and she was as friendly and helpful with information of the area and excellent dinner recommendations. The guest house itself is spotless, comfortable with attention to detail - everything anyone could possibly need was available. Being chilly we appreciated the luxury of an electric blanket and the bathroom pamper goods were local. We particularly enjoyed the views over the Indian Ocean from our own small private balcony, we enjoyed quite time sipping some wine and enjoying early morning coffees while watching the wales in the distance, some dolphins played the surf and wild birds visited the indigenous garden. Being seasoned travelers breakfast is normally …. boring and predictable, but we were pleasantly surprised with the selection on offer, the quality cheeses, cold cuts, nuts, coffee and homemade condiments – it was superb. Although Dana Bay is about 10 minutes’ drive from the more tourist area of Mossel Bay we enjoyed the peace & tranquility, the guest house is set high with spectacular views in a quite area, although no direct access to the beach one can enjoy safe walks around the guest house. We will definitely recommend this lovely property and would like to re-visit soon. Thank you Karin & Nellie for making our stay perfect.
