We could not have asked for a better place for our holiday. The service and breakfast meals were top notch. The on-site manager (Tersia) went out of her way to create a very special atmosphere and maintain a professional service. Hope to be back someday,

Very fine, 5 star stay at Paradise cove.
A very nice hidden gem in the mountains. The view, the food, the rooms, the service. Everything was 5 out 5. We loved the calmness, perfect breakfast and clean accomodation. Definitely a recommended place.

Rooms are spacious with everything you need. The views are spectacular. Tersia is a wonderful hostess and went above and beyond to accommodate our requests. Breakfast was super delicious! Loved the privacy of the rooms as well.

Booked by their website - not answered!!
Spoke to them - was told that they might have accommodation and they would confirm - have heard nothing!!
I guess they are either too busy or not bothered - I guess the later.
Disgruntled Capetonian. But have found other.

We stayed at Paradise Cove for 6 nights in October for the second time, we cannot fault the location and the service, the host/manager Tersia is a tribute to the Guesthouse and its cleanliness and the breakfast is without question one of the best we have had in any guesthouse, a true eye to detail with the important things that matter, hot well cooked and loving prepared food, any one can do a breakfast but the quality is the lasting impression of the host and the location, beautiful grounds and delightful pool area.

This place is a true gem. We will return time and time again. We cannot praise Tersia and the team highly enough, thank you so much for looking after us and making this stay quite special.

This is a really stunning place to stay! We were a family of six (two couples and two children 11 & 8) and we all enjoyed staying in Paradise Cove!

Tersia, our host is very helpful and welcoming. Felt like home from home straight away! This was helped by an e mail we received 2 weeks before our stay asking us regarding breakfast; wow, I have never received care like that before! All staff is friendly and eager to please. By the way, breakfast was excellent. The kids changed mind often but Tersia and the girls always managed to please them.

Now those stunning views! I could see the Wilderness beach from the balcony of my room. Absolutely breathtaking! I felt I didn't want to leave that balcony at all. Wonderful for some impressive pictures as well!

The room itself was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. Beds were quite comfortable (although I got up at dawn as I wanted to see those views at sunrise). The guesthouse was surrounded by beautiful gardens and had a relaxing atmosphere.

The location is perfect for those views, but also for accessing George town and the best part of Garden Route. We had a huge minivan for the holiday and driving that in the narrow road (one lane) up to the guesthouse was a bit of challenge but we didn't mind it after arriving.

We stayed only two nights in Paradise Cove but I would go back to South Africa just to stay there again (a bit longer next time!)

Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed!

I stayed one night at Paradise Cove, which I have to say was great. You'll find the rooms spacious and the views are to die for. I had room 4 which provided a view of the sea to my right and a valley lined with trees in front of me. I had no time to visit the pool but it looked tempting. After a great night sleep, a hot shower and amazing breakfast, I was ready for my day ahead.

Thanks to all the staff there, I will definitely be back, hopefully next time to share the experience.

Stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it very much. Roms are very clean and spacious, view towards wilderness beach is stunning.
Very relaxed place as it is situated well off George on the Mountain top.
