Enjoy the atmosphere of Seebederfie, the guesthouse spoil of spoils, located in Suiderkruis, Groot-Brakrivier along the magnificent, famed Garden Route. With four beautifully decorated rooms facing the Indian Ocean and the Outeniqua Mountains creating a scenic backdrop, Seebederfie is the perfect place to relax, reset and unwind. Perfectly positioned, Seebederfie is a hidden gem along the picturesque stretch between Mossel Bay and George. Take in the sunset as you sit on your private terrace that overlooks a garden and watch the sun dip below the sea. With our prime location, we are the ideal choice when looking for accommodation near an airport. Almost right in between two towns, Seebederfie is only 16 km from Mossel Bay and 24 km from George, with George being the closet airport, a mere 15 km away!

The accommodation with no steps and walk in showers and decent height beds is ideal for the person who is physically challenged. The rooms with the en-suite bathrooms are well furnished and have huge sliding doors which open onto a sea view with Mossel Bay in the distance. As the rooms only have a coffee station it is not self catering but there is an excellent restaurant inside the Spar 2.3kms up the road and there is also an excellent restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner a short distance past Seebederfie. I will definitely return for another visit. The owner and host Johnny is very helpful and pleasant.

Excellent location with the sea almost on your doorstep. Absolute tranquility. The sound of waves crashing while sleeping or having a drink on the patio so relaxing. The rooms are modern, spacious and beautifully decorated. Showers are spacious and modern with ample hot water- solar energy- so loadshedding not a problem. Very close to various restaurants and amenities The host, Johnny, was attentive and friendly and went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would highly recommend Seebederfie for couples as a romantic getaway or just to relax and recharge.

Sadly I couldn’t stay longer. The room is beautifully designed and the bed is very comfortable. On top of that you feel like you have your own private beach. I can highly recommend Seebederfie for both business and holiday travelers

There are a few things that made me rate this only a one star. First of all, there was no upfront payment arrangement, but I am convinced that the owner trusted me. He accommodated us to book in a bit earlier to put down our luggage as we had to go for a 50th birthday celebration. On arrival late at night I found messages on my mobile confronting me about the payment which was not received although it was already made earlier the day. I am convinced that paying from one bank to another takes time but for the owner to rock up at my front door at 06h00 in the morning to come query about the payment made not received yet embarrassed me and I made the assumption that he thought I would leave without paying. This was a slap in my face, and I will never recommend this place to anybody. When we started with the booking process, my wife's daughter also enquired at the same place but they are to many for one room so they would need two rooms. The price given was R900.00 per room but the owner was not prepared to take the risk to take a19 year old child and younger sister into a room where there is no adult accompanying them, so they booked at another bigger place at a much lower rate. When I contacted the owner the morning to do the payment, the price was different from the price he gave me. Then I said it was not the price agreed on and the owner send me a message he sent me with the booking. After that message we discussed the rate, and he gave me another rate, but this was via telephone conversation, and I had no confirmation regarding the price he gave me as pensioner. A few days after I made my booking, I again enquired about another 2 days, but the place was fully booked, and we stayed at another venue.
I feel very much embarrassed as we have travelled about 25 countries over the world, and we visited several B&B's in SA, and I was never embarrassed like this. To put my good name at risk for a R1000.00 or for R1200.00 for that matter, I will never book at See Bederfie again for the above reasons and compared to what you get at other places, I also feel it is too expensive. I admit that it looks like a new development but not for me...........

My Mum and I stayed here for just two nights and were not disappointed. We were welcomed the moment we arrived in the car park and were very quickly shown to our room and given a place we could park the car nearby. We were attending a wedding the following day and were concerned about how we would get back and the host very kindly offered to collect us late in the evening. This was what made our stay 5 star. You could tell the host would do anything to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable and we felt very safe and cared for. The views were stunning! Only small thing is that it’s a shame the guesthouse doesn’t offer breakfast. However Seeplaas next door offers this - if you aren’t in a rush and are prepared for slow service! Thank you Jonny and family for a lovely stay.

The property is situate on a hill overlooking the ocean with magnificent 180 degree views from Great Brak to Mossel Bay. The rooms are modern but smallish with a lovely en suite bathroom with a walk in shower. The bed was large and very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean.. Whist there is a small fridge and tea making facility it would be useful if there was some rudimentary self catering items such as glasses, cutlery and crockery. There is a Weber barbecue available but without tongs. There are limited a number of restaurants in the area so some form of self catering would be useful. Notwithstanding, we enjoyed a brilliant few days and recommend this establishment without reservation.

My wife and I had to go down to the Mossel Bay Area because of illness in the family. We had to find accommodation at short notice and Seebederfie was recommended to us. At the last moment before departing our granddaughter of 13yrs old wanted to join us. Although we had booked a two pax room Johnny Peens went to extraordinary lengths to accommodate our request under trying circumstances for us. It was a pleasure staying in the spacious luxury accommodation and there were numerous coffee shops and restaurants in the near vicinity where we could enjoy breakfast. We will definitely use that accommodation again should we need to.
Just for additional information my wife and I are very keen birders and Seebederfie is surrounded by coastal dune vegetation and also close to the sea. The inland birding routes from Mossel Bay , Hartenbos, Grootbrak, Klein Brak and the proximity of the lakes and lagoons of Sedgefield are in close driving distance.
This greater coastal, wetlands and montane area is a birders paradise.

When arriving at any holiday destination, you expect to see what you paid for - and more. Seebederfie is definitely a guest house that I will definitely pay another visit to. The host, Johnny Peens, went out of his way to make me feel at home. The rooms are comfortably equipped in a simple, classy and tastefu style. Then - the view!!! I don't think there is a more beautiful view - with freshly cut green grass, a private little beach ideal for bon fires, a short walk to the beach and a beautiful, clean see to top it up! If U could rate the venue higher than 5, I would!

We spent one night at Seebederfie while on honeymoon, and would highly recommend a stay here! The rooms are beautifully furnished and the views are incredible - we watched whales and a pod of dolphins from the patio. Johnny and his daughters were wonderful hosts and gave great suggestions for places to eat in the area. We hope to be back soon, and to stay for longer next time!

From the very first moment we sat our feet on the property, to when we met our hosts, stepping foot into our room and waking up with the sound of the ocean and a unbelievable view, it was the best experience I have ever had. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and the room was more incredible than I could have ever imagined. It was like living in a dream!
