Really, everything was excellent! We were made to feel very welcome, both by Memory, the owner, and Magda, her assistant . We only stayed one night as we were travelling, but Villa de Mer provided a perfect stop-over .

Not our first time at Villa de Mer and we will return again. This is a great place to stay with the room of very high quality and a superb breakfast. There are two excellent eating places within a very short car journey, one the highlander is a pub and restaurant with good beer and food, the other an excellent restaurant on the road into town. The beach is just the other side of the sand dunes in front of the Villa and when walking on this it is like a desert island as likely you will be on your own for some or all of the time. The attention to detail is the hallmark of this accommodation. The town is less than a 5 minute drive and has a range of eateries available. The golf course is 5 minutes around the corner and while sometimes a bit breezy is a very nice course to play.

We were welcomed and looked after really well. A great place to stay. Plenty of room in the communal areas and a deliscious breakfast. Opposite a lovely beach and near some outstanding restaurants. You can walk to the town where you will find plenty to see and do.

Memory was very helpful with accommodating our needs and assisted in booking activities.

we had to leave early one morning so we could make it to Addo elephant park, so they opened the breakfast room 1hour early so we could have breakfast before we left, just for us.

Wow! Villa De Mer far exceeded our expectations. We expected it to be nice, comfortable and convenient but what we got was exceptional service, wonderful breakfasts catered to each of our personal tastes and a real spoil. Nothing was too much trouble.

We were travelling with our kids, (4 and 6 years old) and booked the inter-leading double and twin room. It was very comfortable. There is a fridge in the room, TV and a tea/coffee making station. The rooms were serviced around our schedule - whether we were on the beach early or enjoying a lazy lie-in. There are also 2 lounges where you can sit and read/play board games with the kids etc.

Although the B&B does not offer any other meals than breakfast, we were welcome to make use of the kitchen to make snacks for the kids with the groceries that we had bought. There is also a braai (BBQ) area next to the pool which is available for use by the guests.

The B&B is immaculately kept, across the road from a beautiful beach and has a lovely pool. It's greatest asset however are the staff who take guest service to another level. I can't recommend this place enough. Thank you Memory, Magda and all your staff for helping to make our holiday so perfect.

A huge thanks for your very positive review. It was a pleasure to accommodate you and we were very sad when you left. It truly felt as if we had lost family. Please send us some photos of the little ones until we see them next year.
