The place is breathtaking and unique. The rooms are spacious with a king size bed that you may sleep like starfish. The view is impeccable and top that off the host is absolutely one of the best host I have ever encountered. Loaf will go out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We went as a group of couples and had the most amount of fun. A must do in Cintsa

The accommodation is very well appointed and quiet. It has great sea views, the owner is very friendly and helpful and the price is a bargain. Great beach in Chintsa, meals available within a short distance and the area has no security problem

Very happy with everything. Stunning views of the sea and surrounding area and beautiful rooms. Everything was very clean and the rooms are well thought out. Nice central location to visit areas in and around the east coast.

This was our second trip to Purple Haze, I organised everything from outside of the country with ease. We arrived late on a Sunday evening, but Loaf still managed to organise us drinks to enjoy on their beautiful sun deck. I would recommend Purple Haze to any adventurous soul, the rooms are pristinely clean and the views are to die for.

We had to cut our long journey in two between Mossel Bay and Ramsgate, so arrived at " The Haze" to a warm and friendly welcome by owner Loaf and his adorable dog, Mojo. it was like seeing old friends again ! Delighful rooms, all with stunning 180° sea views, spotlessly clean premises, and relaxing ambience. Chintza is one of South Africa's hidden gems, and this lodge is a 'diamond'. We booked in again for our return trip a couple of days later.
