Amazing place (room, pool and garden) and host (accommodating, charming, and helpful). Super close to the beach and hiking trail. It's a very cute part of town away from the busy centre. Highly recommend it!

Thank you to our hosts Jan & Erika for an amazing experience on our recent visit to Plett. For your warm welcome, friendliness, excellent accommodation which was so sparkling clean & comfortable. For all the info on what to do in the area, long chats and the picnic basket. We loved every moment and if possible we will be back 😊

We absolutely loved our stay! Jan & Erika went above and beyond to make our mini moon vacation so special. From petals in the room and bathroom to our wine from the vineyard we were married at. The rooms are extremely generous in space! The double head shower you could easily park a little car. We slept so well as the bed was extremely comfortable and the linen so soft! There is a stunning pool and amazing outdoor seating area with fire/braai we were treated to. Location wise is incredible as the broad walk to the beach is 2 mins from the house. We cannot wait to return next year for longer as 2 nights was nowhere near long enough!!!!!

My wife and I just spent a weekend here and had such an amazing time. A beautiful spot with the beach just a small stroll away. Warm and welcoming hosts made us feel right at home! Nothing better than going to bed at night and waking up in the morning to the sounds of the rolling waves nearby.

I have been coming to Plettenberg Bay for years. However, this is the first time I have found a comfortable accommodation that suits all my needs. The guest house is within walking distance to the most beautiful beach in Plett and has a very relaxed and quiet environment surrounding it. The shops are a 5 minute drive away which also makes it very convenient. I felt safe and relaxed every minute of being there. Thank you to Jan and Erika. Hope to be back soon!

Myself and a couple friends decided to stay in Sea Breeze BnB and had the most amazing time. Very friendly owners made the stay pleasant. The BnB is a short walk away from a stunning blue flag beach. Beautiful braai area to have a drink with friends. Highly recommend.

We love staying here and do so every year. Its close to Robberg beach. Rooms are quite small but ever so quaint and beautiful. Always clean too! Good beds and lovely linen. Each room has a microwave, fridge, a few plates and dishes, sink, kettle so you can get by with the basics. Not the place to make a meal though. Better to order in - and they provide this service too! Very friendly and helpful hosts, making us feel right at home. No fuss and easy from start to finish.

We spent ten days as a family in this beautiful setting, Erica and Jan were the perfect hosts. Capricorn Beach House is close the beach and in close proximity to the shops. The rooms are very comfortable with TV's and strong internet.

A family vocation for six of us across three generations was made perfect by this location and host. Beautifully laid out rooms and family area, location both immediate to the beach and within five minutes of the village ammenities. The beach is wide, clean, safe and disturbed only by frendly walkers passing by. Our host and hostess Jan and Erika were so understanding of our needs and could not do enough to help. Local shops were comprehensive and cheap. All in all it must be one of the best holidays we have had.

What a place to get away from our busy city life and take some time out. It was great to spend some time catching up on reading and being so close to the beach! The house has a classic beach feel and the hosts are incredibly warm and friendly. Plett can be busy at times, but this guest house is tucked away in the quiet area of Solar Beach which is right next to the reserve! Highly recommend this stay to any family that wants some time out
