My husband and I stayed in the main house during a trip of the Graden route in March 2022. It is perfecrly located, near Plettenberg but far enough from it to be peaceful. The house is beautiful but what makes it special are the owners who were so welcoming. I arrived with a slight illness and the owners, Liz and Brian , found me a doctor. Also Brian cooked us a lovely meal when we were too tired to find dinner one night. We hope to visit again one day.

After a Covid-enforced travel break, I was able to return to stay in Clivia Cottage . Everything was as it has been for many years on annual visits. Brian and Liz are charming hosts and the staff are delightful. The Cottage is brilliantly equipped and the pool area lovely. Cannot be too highly recommended!

This is a truly exceptional place to stay. Large luxury cottages in such a tranquil unspoilt setting. I have stayed many times as have my parents and I hope to stay many times again. Liz and Brian are the perfect hosts and couldn’t do more for you. I highly recommend staying here.

Perfectly located place with very spacious and comfortable cottages, each kept very private. Tremendous views and sense of tranquility - with Plett shops and beaches just 10 minutes away. Excellent and discreet service.

Liz and Brian made us feel at home right from the first time we chatted. There was nothing they would not do for us. Incredible service from grocery shopping, meal bookings , activity suggestions to arranging a driver service for our daughter. The setting is just incredible.

It was so good to be back at Fynbos Ridge after a difficult year. We really appreciated the chance to relax in our comfortable cottage with its amazing fynbos gardens which attract so many beautiful birds. We also always enjoy Brian's breakfasts and this time we were even treated to a homemade Italian evening meal. We always wish we could say longer - but we promise to be back in 2021. Thank you Liz and Brian for such a stunning stay.

Fynbos Ridge is a beautiful property situated in serene location with lovely mountain views. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and stylish and the owners are friendly and helpful. It is situated close enough to Plettenberg Bay to make it a good base for exploring.

We loved the fire in the bedroom and the monkeys playing around the main house. Such comfort and beautiful views. I love birds so we had a fabulous time lying next to the beautiful pool and walking around the property.

I booked my trip through an agent and when we arrived at Fynbos Ridge we were not disappointed. Such a lovely old colonial style house set in amazing grounds . Walking though to the pool area it is gorgeous to come and to such fantastic breathtaking views surround by the beautiful "Fynbos " which is where it gets its name from. They owners have thought of everything in the room which even had a ironic board and iron ( a great bonus when you are travelling and living out of a suitcase ) . Host very informative on trips and the local area, the breakfast was lovely the best fruit salad I've had in a long time and the food freshly cooked. I can see why people return here year after year and some for months at a time.
