The property is centrally located in Witsand. Very clean and well appointed. Extremely safe area in general. Great beaches and great walks . Even better if you’re into kite surfing and fishing. The market shop does a good breakfast and several good restaurants. Would return if we ever came back and recommend it thoroughly.

I stayed in the dorm, and it is a great place for backpackers. Spacious dorm and a large common room with a well equipped kitchen. It's located in a relatively quiet town, but with many things to do if you choose so. Otherwise it's a great place to relax and unwind. What I love about the town is that many businesses (among which Barry's Accomodation) accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. Try it out!

Very relaxed and a really safe place. A lot of contact to other travelers and everything ready if you’re doing Watersports. Cleaning washing and drying your stuff is perfect, too. Definitely would book it again. Chris

We really enjoyed our stay at Smitsand, it was really clean and it had everything you need when you are away from your home. It was a really great place to relax and recharge the batteries. Will definitely go back.

What an amazing weekend it was. The home was beautiful and accommodated for all our needs. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely family home to break away, in a lovely safe estate with breathtaking views. Such a lovely town as well and the people are so friendly. All in all a 10 out of 10!!!

People often enthuse regarding Stillbaai. I prefer Witsand, it's less developed and has a superb beach. The accommodation exceeded my expectations for a backpackers. I stayed in a large room which was spotlessly clean. Helen was particularly welcoming and helpful.

Beautiful 3 bedroom cottage in Witsand with spectacular view of the river. The 1st floor of the house is the living area with great vies and braai facilities. Really enjoyed my stay there and definitely coming back. Our host Owen really did a great job with this house.

What a beautiful place to stay when visiting Witsand. The views are amazing and it's within walking distance to a restaurant. The accommodation was perfect for my son and myself. Owen and Helen were very friendly. The unit had everything that we needed. Would definitely recommend that you spend time at this beautiful place
