From the time that we rang the doorbell on arrival, we were given 5-star treatment by Luc & Sue in every respect. Our room was beautiful, with a view over the sea, and everything that we needed. As we were there in winter we spent most of our afternoon sitting around the fire in the lounge, and did the same on the morning of our departure when our check-in at our destination was later. The breakfast was delicious, and they also assisted us with recommendations for dinner, notifying us well in time that the opening of the Hussar Grill on the estate was delayed and then offering other options.

From the moment you open the patio doors and see the view, hear the sea and admire the best nature can offer you will know you have arrived somewhere truly special. This oasis of calm matched with excellent hospitality from hosts Sue and Luc really do recharge the batteries. If excellent views, spectacular nature, long walks on pristine powder sandy beaches and excellent accommodation float your boat this is for you. We can't wait to fit this into a return trip to SA in the future.

A fourth visit and still an exceptional guest house inmaculately run and maintained by Luc and Sue. Ideal for a quiet secluded break with sea views and beach. Always a friendly welcome with Sue and Luc recommending local restaurants based both on their experience and reports as well as arranging reservations. Luc's breakfasts, his omelettes particularly, are excellent. Sad to leave but look forward to future stays.

So pleased to stay in such a fantastically presented small hotel--just 6 rooms. All rooms very comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast is fantastic. The owners do a great job in making you feel you are on holiday. A MUST to return to.

This was a walk in as I was urgently looking for accommodation for the night and discovered this beautiful lodge by accident. I had the most friendly reception from the owners and immediately felt at home. They had one room left and was immediately available. The room was in prestine condition especially taking into account I had not booked in advanced.

All rooms have great views of the ocean and one can watch the whales and dolfins from the comfort of your room or the lounge area.

The property is in a secured area so there are kilometers of safe strolls on the beach.

In the mornings a great breakfast is prepared by the owners and was very tasty.

I was sad to leave and will definitely be back.
