· Beautiful building with spacious garden. The room is small but all what we needed was there. The view is very beautiful and very quite. Big common space with TV and kitchen to share if needed and the terrace from there offers a stunning view. Internet was working very well. The host´s son, was very friendly and found a solution to all our needs. A place to go again. Disliked · The bathroom is a bit smelly, like there is not enough air circulation and damp even though there is a window on the roof, and the small clothes I had to wash for my daughter did not get dry.

I really enjoyed my stay at Swept Away, and will definitely stay there again. My host (Inge) went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable. The location and view over the ocean is beautiful. I also loved the 'old school' sailing décor.

We were the only ones in the house so we had full use of all areas to ourselves. I can imagine that this would be uncomfortable with other guests. The views were absolutely amazing! The room needs a little TLC. The bathroom towels were old and small, and the shower water pressure was not great. A little bit of effort would turn this into real 5 star accommodation!

The location & views are fabulous, we had an amazing sea view from our bedroom and watched the most spectacular sunset from my private space while sipping a wine. Our host Inge was very helpful and on call via cellphone for any needs.

We paid a deposit for 11-13 Feb under Venn / Hooper, due to COVID restrictions we had complications in travelling, We have sent emails and tried to call their number many times with no response trying to inform them that we need to change our booking to a later date. Hopefully they will see this message and contact us. ALTERNATIVELY if anyone has a contact for a reliable source in Yzerfontein that we can get this message through or who can go knock on their door, this would be appreciated. Tired of being manipulated by unprofessional agents / accommodation industry in S Africa!!!

The view from the room is the only redeeming factor about this place... The dirt was the worst part of our stay... From hair all over the bathroom, to gross stains and something that was messed all over the blanket we were given. I tried to use the pot in the kitchenette and nothing had been washed. The room looks like it hasn’t been cleaned properly in ages! I couldn’t imagine eating there if the rooms are that filthy. We were so grateful that we had brought our own towels to use, too. I should have taken pics from when we first arrived because it was revolting! The host, Inge, didn’t know which room I booked when I arrived and didn’t seem to know that we were even arriving on that day. We stayed at Swept Away from Nov 23-25 of this year (2020). It’s impossible to get hold of her, too, as not once did she answer on the number provided in the room. The WiFi is nonexistent... The shower gets clogged and you have to wait for the water to run out. If you wanted to use the braai facilities, it was an absolute mess. Everything was exactly as the previous guests had left it. Overall, the dirtiest place we’ve ever stayed at and the concept of sanitizing is of course non-existent... I’ve attached some pictures after it was supposed to be cleaned. The price of the one bedroom apartment with sea view we stayed in is laughable and I can’t believe the reviews I read before booking. Totally misleading!

My fiance and I had a fantastic quick getaway. The view from the guesthouse was absolutely amazing and gave a unique perspective of Yzerfontein. Inge's service was very friendly and supportive, plus she made a delicious breakfast. All the facilities were exactly what we needed for a comfortable stay. We can highly recommend a stay at Swept Away.
