Fran and Dermott could not have been more helpful and their friendliness and attention to detail was astounding. The 2 bedroom apartment was spotless and had everything you could need for a home from home experience. The view was awesome. Thank you for your hospitality we can't wait to return and stay with you again one day with our family from London!! Peter and Paddy Bakker

The owners and staff couldn't be more helpful . I felt they were more like family giving us advice on the best restaurants and best things to do in the area . My husband wasn't well while we were there so it was nice to be able to get a takeaway from the local restaurant and eat in our kitchen/dining area. It wouldn't have been the same stuck in a hotel room . It's a lovely place to relax and I thoroughly recommend a stay here .

Absolutely first class accommodation, well maintained and spotlessly clean. We had the 2 bedroom apartment and the website pictures doesn't do the property justice. Fran and Dermott are super hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and will return as soon as we can.

Booked this beach house whilst in Knysna last minute as I decided staying at a hostel wasn’t for me. From the moment we arrived, I knew I would love the house. Fran to my surprise had a map printed out for us and places to visit whilst in Plettenberg. Found this information very useful and insightful as locals always knows best and she and her husband did. Very knowledgeable couple. Gave us tips on where to eat, visit and driving at night. The guesthouse we stayed was very homely and she had homemade cookies waiting for us. The room was cosy and loved the little touches around the house. Our room could easily take 3 adults. Thanks to the team as well for keeping the place clean and tidy for us. Will definitely stay here and highly recommend it to anyone stopping at Plettenberg. Loved the welcome from arrival to departure. A hostess I won’t forget.
