I just want to thank Debora, Meagan and Jennifer for making us feel at home for the whole weekend.
We ended up using the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with the friendliness and hospitality given to us by all the staff at the venue.

Linda and Jane - thank you for an awesome experience, you will definitely see us again soon!

Even our doggies want to come visit again ;-)

We were looking for a place to overnight for 3 people. Vensterklip was clean neat and met our expectations and requirements for 3 people. The kitchen was equipped with a gas bottle in case of “load-shedding” which made our stay more enjoyable because life could still continue with a cup of coffee.

Although the 'Left Break' chalet is nice and spacious, our stay there started really badly as a result of the 'welcome' at reception. The lady in charge was outright rude, told us that the place wasn't ready yet (at quarter to three), and made us wait while she busied herself with obviously more favoured guests.
The location of the chalet is near a cross-roads, which is rather busy with heavy traffic - far more than you'd expect from the size of the road. Unsurprisingly, there is also an enormous amount of insects around, and it would be an idea if the chalet had fly screens on the windows. A can of insect repellent would have been a nice gesture too, or even just a note warning about the multitude of winged critters waiting to invade at dusk.
On the positive side, the beach at Eland's Bay is really nice, and the spectacular gannet colony at Lambert's Bay is only half an hour drive, so the location in a broader sense is OK.

We went as extended family and booked all the units. We had the whole place to ourselves. The kids could play in the sand and run around without a care. There is a lovely play area by the restaurant and on the Sunday with breakfast at the restaurant they put up a jumping castle for the kids. On Saturday the lady that services the bar came especially so our men could watch the rugby. Staff were always friendly and helpful. The units are beautiful with white bedding and luxurious extra guest amenities and white towels. I just loved the old thick walled house with wooden floors. The water pressure isn't great but it just ads to the rustic feel of the old farm house. More attention could be given to the cleaning of the rooms as it was quite dusty under beds and cupboards, but again, a minor flaw in an otherwise stunning home away from home.

My wife and I stopped by the restaurant following a visit to the nearby Verlorenvlei and, boy, were we glad we did! We opted for the mussel with the cream sauce and home-made bread for starters and the calamari for mains- both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. Meagan, our hostess, was very gracious and took time to explain to us all the surroundings areas had to offer. We also liked the old-timey vibe and vintage decor of the place. One to check out if you're ever in the area.

Without a doubt I'm already making plans to go back. There is soooo much history there that there was simply not enough time in the 2 days we stayed at Vensterklip to grasp it all. How privilege were we to have watched the program on DSTV Kyknet Channel 144 which were broadcasted one of the nights we actually stayed there, that shared some of it's history, introduced the owner, Jane Louw and her personnel and the renovations to their kitchen including a brand spanking new food menu. The staff is very friendly and I especially enjoyed the conversations with the head chef, Linda. Jane is such a lovely person and with her warm personality made our stay even more pleasant. Don't delay go ahead and book your stay! Warm regards from Morne, Yvonne, Kaylee and Kyle.

I thoroughly enjoyed camping at one of the private campsites with own ablution and built-in braai/kitchen area.
Good homemade food at the restaurant and the padstal has meat, wood, etc.
The hike to Vensterklip is also recommended on a clear day...the views are brilliant.

We stayed over at a chalet for two nights during December 2020. Loved the room and the surrounding area. However when we arrived there was a note in the chalet by the kitchen that we are expected to was our own dishes. Never cleaned our room and/or the dishes from our order at the restaurant from the previous day and we ordered seafood. The smell was really bad. This was also never removed. We complained but the owner never even answer our call, messages.

We arrived late and the security person on duty was friendly enough to open for us.
The room is good for one night sleep over, not long term. We wanted to stay for breakfast at the restaurant, but they only opened at 09:00 and we were already on our way.

What a great experience in my Fish Eagle Chalet. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed and the WiFi advertised was not existing. What a shame as it is considered as essential today for all travellers, business and leisure. Especially international guest who use the facility to contact family and business when visiting our beautiful country
