“Fantastic secluded holiday home”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What a find! Amazing architect designed house with superb views. We spent 8 days of our honeymoon here and cannot wait to return. The house is light and airy with open plan main area ensuring views from every angle. It is well equipped and furnished, warm and comfortable with areas for relaxing inside and outside. There are plenty of places to explore with walks directly from the house as well as in other parts of Wilderness. The local beaches are both intimate and dramatic. The owners Sally and Henry are on hand to offer advice and help if needed. Don't miss out on this place!

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We spent a wonderful weekend at Ballots Bay where Henry and Sally were extremely welcoming and gracious hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The views from the lounge and deck were breathtaking. Great not to have television, internet or radios, which provided a wonderful opportunity to de-tech by being able to completely unplug from the stresses of modern living and reconnect not just as a couple but also with nature. Well situated along the Garden Route with easy access from both Port Elizabeth and George airports, the weekend market at Sedgefield is a must. We will definitely visit again.

“A little bit of paradise on the Western Cape coast”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I had a fabulous five nights staying at Sally and Henry's beautiful holiday home in Ballot Heights near Wildernesse in Western Cape. The house is in a fantastic location overlooking the bay amongst the woodland on the cliff slopes, with beautiful birds and other wildlife nearby. We went on some wonderful walks from the house - watched Ostriches and Zebra - from a safe distance - on the plains above house and were treated to an awe inspiring show from a school of Southern Right whales "frolicking" in the bay below one evening which had us hollering and whooping!

Henry and Sally were very welcoming hosts - and for us this is perhaps the most perfect location we could imagine spending a few days in. I am a bit nervous about reviewing it as in some ways we'd love to keep it a secret to ourselves....

We will be definitely get back as soon as we can.
