I really enjoyed my stay at Tidewaters. It has African style thatched roofs, and the rooms remind me of chalets in a game park. There are covered private patios overlooking rainforest like gardens with lots of trees, flowers, and birds. There’s a pool to cool off in, and kids can play in. It includes breakfast which was very nice. There is onsite attentive customer service. Other guests were respectful and did not play loud music or party at the b&b which I appreciated. It is a very tranquil, beautiful place, and I slept very well.

We did the Strandloper hike and stayed at Tidewater after the hike. It was the best decision ever. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the vibe super chilled and the rooms comfortable. Would recommend Tidewater to anyone.

The rooms are good, slightly tired but good value at the price. Nice tranquil setting. The biggest hindrance is the proximity of rooms to each other - basically walking out on the same stoep. I had to listen to my neighbour's music for hours!

This place is an absolute gem! The rooms have a real bushveld feel but with all the luxuries that you would expect from this certified 4-star establishment. We went canoeing (a facility provided by the guesthouse) and explored the pristine beach and natural beauty that Gonubie offers. Devon was an awsome host and checked in frequently to see that we were taken care of. The staff are exceptional, helpful, friendly and courteous, Tidewater River Lodge will definitely see us again!

We attended a wedding in the area and booked 4 rooms for the weekend. We liked everything about the place. The rooms were nicely decorated, the breakfast was excellent, secure parking available, and good service.
