Travellers' Choice
The Safari Guesthouse has exquisite views of the Indian Ocean and the world-famous Garden Route await visitors to the Safari Guesthouse. Here, we put comfort and hospitality at the top of the list for our guests. Safari Guesthouse is perched above the Robberg Vlei in Plettenberg Bay and just behind the Robberg Nature Reserve. The rooms and dining area boast breath-taking views of the ocean as it meets the coastline. In fact, these views stretch for miles ahead and, on a clear day, the mountains of the Tsitsikamma can be seen looming proudly over the beautiful valleys and forests of the Garden Route.

Peter and Sandra were the perfect hosts. Sandra's "haute cuisine" breakfasts will remain a stand out memory. Perfect location and bay view mixed with Swiss hospitality made for a memorable holiday. To be repeated.

Sandra and Peter are supreme hosts and make you welcome from the outset. The property itself has been designed and fitted out to the highest standards with few expenses spared. The rooms are very well appointed and offer peaceful, comfortable accommodation. Breakfasts when we were there were served indoors as the weather was somewhat changeable and offered a wide choice from the buffet in addition to Sandra's daily surprise. We enjoyed them immensely. It was ice to receive a pot of coffee for breakfast which was the first one we received after almost a month a travel in South Africa. Peter was extremely helpful in booking a taxi when we had to go to a wine estate out of town where we had lunch booked for us by our daughter. He recommended and ordered a taxi firm that he always uses and has faith in, which put our minds at ease. We really enjoyed our two days here and would return without hesitation. There is plenty of free guest parking at the property.

We stayed at the Safari Guesthouse on our honeymoon (they even gave us a small gift which was a lovely touch) and I have to say that the house is designed and decorated beautifully. Taking advantage of the gorgeous views of Plett Bay. Breakfasts were the best we had anywhere in SA and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend

On the garden route, we decided to stay 2 nights in Plettenberg Bay, to benefit from this beautiful spot. Safari guesthouse was an obvious choice considering its excellent rating The reality was even beyond our expectations. View is breathtaking, accomodations are modern, large, well equipped, perfectly clean. Decoration is amazing. Service was great: friendly, warm, informative. To make it short, this is a place where one cannot be disapointed Thank you to both Sandra and Peter! What you've achieved is remarkable

It clearly tells all our future guest that whatever our guests write about us on trip-advisor is true for us and other guesthouses and hopefully help to increase the level of trust in information guest can read on trip-advisor. Your review definitely helped this cause. Thank you very much for taking the time to write these kind word about us and ur house. Best regards and please sty healthy during these unprecedented times.
