In December 2020 we took our second trip to Oyster Bay Lodge, and it will not be our last ! My wife's eyes start to glitter when I make noises of going there and my children simply adore this charming place that feels like home from home. The quaint accommodation, absolutely divine food and hospitality of Hans and his team is outstanding. I love the 10 min walk to the beach through the bush, the resident fish eagles, bush buck, the horse riding, the Oyster Catchers and the unspoilt nature and private beach. My kids ride horses every day and other amenities (golf) is 20 min away. MTB tracks, walking trails, picnics (in secluded spots), fishing (river and see) makes this place one of the gems of our country. I am booking for December 2021 soon !
We loved our stay at Oyster Bay Lodge! Especially since it was also our venue for our wedding. Danielle and the team at Oyster Bay Lodge did an amazing job making sure that our wedding was perfect. The Food and Accommodation is top shelf! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway near the see.
The staff, the rooms and the food are all fine. We felt very comfortable. But surprises and disappointments too... The place is remote and dirt tracks are the only means of access. No problem but a bit disconcerting and unexpected.- it would have been good to have known The beach is quite a walk and very exposed (windy). The sea is cold and dangerous - I expected to be able to swim - no way!
We were here for the second time now, and again it was just wonderful! This beach! This nature! This silence! Just overwhelming! The owner, Hans, has a really great team with excellent team spirit and a strong focus on customers. Also, the discussions with Hans when we by chance met him on the trails were very nice and informative. We will definitely come back ASAP.
We only had 2 nights here at the start of our SA trip but it was well worth the drive along a very bumpy gravel road. The food was tasty and well presented, the staff (especially Bonita and Zenze) were superb as was our chalet. The beach is just amazing. Our stay here was just what we needed to relax and recover from our 24 hrs travelling from the UK. Be sure to get directions before setting out as our hire car GPS took us on a very tortuous route! Thank you Oyster Bay Lodge for a fabulous start to our holiday.
