Excellent stay, this was a surprise birthday present to my fiance'. She had a great time. Very nice, well equipped spacious accommodation. Friendly servie from Helen at Barry's guesthouse. Manificient view fromt he guesthouse of the river mouth. Could sit and watch it all day as it so very variable. Area very intersting with an excellent craft market. Three good restuarants in easy travelling distance.

Bedding was low quality and not suitable for winter. No towels were provided although one would expect that at the price charged. There was not enough toilet paper. We left some breakfast dishes unwashed and used extra duvets off the unused beds (because of the cold) but were penalized for that as the owners decided to subtract washing up and extra bedding off our 'breakage deposit'.

Good Day Gabi Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Pole Pole. The house is a self catering holiday home - not a lodger hotel which will explain why we only provide one loo roll per bathroom - and lack of towels. The rate charged was R233. (USD15) per person per night - which gave you a four bedroomed, three bathroomed, large fully equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor braai, enclosed garden, games room and TV lounge/dining area.....plus a late check out option your day of departure - we are not sure what more you were expecting? Furthermore - you booked and paid for 9 guests but all 11 beds were used. There is a large notice on the fridge that guests are requested to do their own washing up and that R100. would be charged if not done - the house has recently had a dishwasher fitted for guests convenience. We try and encourage sustainable tourism practises - so ask our guests to recycle bottles, cans, cardboard etc in the recycling bin provided - it was a shame that you were unable to do that.

The perfect overnight spot between our Breede River adventures. Jolly Jarman Cottage at Barry's Accommodation Witsand felt like a home away from home with neat, comfortable, freshly decorated and excellent hosting from its owner Helen. And what a sunset! Affordable, and well equipped for couples or friends. We'll definitely be back and thank you for accommodating us on such short notice! 🙏👍

Breede View is a stunning property with the most awe-inspiring view. We were well received and our every need was catered for by Barry's Holiday accommodation, Owen and Helen really are super hosts! This property is perfect for a large group or more than one family looking for the ultimate luxury base to explore Witsand from. We'll certainly be back and make use of Barry's Holiday Accommodation and their services again! Thank you, Owen and Helen!

Owen and Helen, our hosts, were very friendly and accommodating. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Clean towels and linen were supplied on request. If we were to go back to Witsand we would book in again. As far as safety goes, we felt secure which in turn led to a very enjoyable carefree holiday.
