Twelve of us stayed here as part of our Chokka walk. What a surprise and treat to walk around the corner after 18km hike to find out this was of home for the evening.
Sarah and her team were there to welcome us and offer us tea or coffee and one made biscuits.
Our bedrooms were beautiful every detail had been thought of. There was common agreement that the heated bathroom floors was super special. Life is all in the detail and this guest house ticks every box and more.
The evening meal was beautifully presented and delicious. We had a chicken curry.
The breakfast was also great.
We will definitely make a special effort to visit again.

Simply perfect, beutiful place, the cottage was super clean and comfortable, warm and cozy with plenty of space. We also enjoyed a very nice dinner with excellent food and wine. Highly recommended. Good value for money

I had an opportunity to stay over in St Francis Bay recently, and I chose Dune Ridge Country House for its comfort, warmth and reputation for delicious food. We weren't disappointed. Perectly comfortable, luxurious King Size bed was dreamy and the dinner and breakfast was mouth-watering. I'm going to book another weekend getaway to Dune Ridge!

If you are looking for a quiet weekend getaway where you will be utterly spoilt, then Dune Ridge is perfect for you.

My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at Dune Ridge. We were welcomed by Hein and received a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room, which we choose to have with our evening dinner. The staff were very attentive and we enjoyed dinner at a table for two in front of a cozy fire place (it was a very chilly weekend in St Francis). The 3 course meal was of exceptional quality and Brendon, the night manager, interacted well with us, sharing many Dune Ridge stories with us. While we were having dinner, the night staff, draw back our bed, placed hot water bottles at the end of our beds, fragrantly infused our room with smellies and left mugs of hot chocolate with marshmallows to end a perfect night. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom a pleasure with its underfloor heating!! The courtesy bar was well stocked with all the right goodies. Morning breakfast was delicious and the view out of the dinning room was filled with an array of beautiful birds. Thank you to Sarah and her incredible staff for making our stay so memorable!!

It was 5 star!

We will definitely be back.

Our third visit. Just as good as ever if not better.
Wonderful hospitality from Sarah and team.
In room 3 this year (Garden suite). Perfection. Large room/bathroom/shower. Charlotte Rhys toiletries. Mosquito nets over the four poster bed and a lovely large terrace for lazing.
Dinner is a must here. Certainly surpasses many good restaurants for quality food. The same applies at breakfast.
Attention to detail everywhere. Full super sport coverage (new since last we stayed).
Beautifully peaceful location.
Thoroughly deserves to be Trip Advisor No 1 in the area.
