Was very bad when we got there and saw we had to share the house with other guests. Was very bad when we went in and saw we did not have an indoor braai as advertised. Was very bad when we had to braai outside but the gutter runs into the braai area and we have to stand in the water and braai. There will have to be a lot of change to the ad.

Good Afternoon Edward Many thanks for taking the time to review us, however- we were very surprised at the content as when you left - you you told us how much you enjoyed your stay . . You had your own entrance, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 x bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, a games/DSTV lounge, Wifi facility, safe parking , Ocean/river views for the five of you - all for less than USD80. per night. which isn't too bad at all!! There is a totally separate unit upstairs which was occupied by two people during your stay. As for the braai area, it is undercover in a courtyard area, however we cannot stop the rain - most people choose not to braai in the rain!! Kind regards Helen

Very affordable, clean, comfortable, good location. It has all amenities needed, staff and owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The best hospitality offered. The best surprise was the electric blanket on our bed.

We are so surprised to get a poor review from you Neil, after all that we did to ensure that you could enjoy your stay : - first of all - you had booked for two people but arrived with two extra people. -secondly you had booked 2 x dormitory beds - which means you would of had to share the bedroom and bathrooms with other guests. However, we moved you to our private family room at no extra cost. - thirdly , your payment had been rejected with ERRORS - yet we still allowed you to stay with out payment, until we finally got paid the day before you were due to leave. - we lent your children a bag of toys to take to the beach, we provided you with free wifi and complimentary tea/coffe. I am really not sure what else we could of done to help you enjoy your holiday?

I much enjoyed staying at Barry's Poshbacking. I chose a double room, which had all the amenities and access to a huge kitchen, braai and garden. Most of all I liked the familiar environment and the hosts Owen and Helen, who made the stay special. We wen't kiting and biking together and had a jolly good time. I'll be back again next summer!
