Situated in an idyllic location in Port Alfred on the best part of the Kowie River, this establishment always lives up to expectations. The house is exceptionally well maintained, stylish and beautiful with all the amenities one could wish for. It was sometimes hard to leave the pool area to go to the beaches which are arguably amongst the best in the world. Advice about where to eat and to go is always readily available. And if for nothing else one has to have the famous delicious 'Dale' breakfast.

Room Tip: Everything is great.

Excellent, friendly loved every minute of it. Would definitely stay there again. Beautiful, relaxing made us feel at home. Liked how you could come and go. Loved waking up to the view of the river every morning. Thanks once again Leigh-Ann & Juan

We were here last year, came back this year, will come back next year. Great hospitality! The owners do a fantastic job, you really feel home. The pool, overlooking the KOWIE River is also a treat, Restaurants in food walking distance

Room first Rate, fittings top line and new. Ditte and her Husband take a personal interest and care. Each room has its own private patio, with a gas cooker and barbecue (braai) in case you don't want to use one of the local restaurants. Bathroom stunning. Wi-Fi has a code and it really works well. None of that Centrally registered Access point stuff. Breakfast personally prepared and has many small touches to make it unique.

Room Tip: I brought an extension lead to work with my laptop on the patio table. Ask Ditte for her special coffee!

Friendly welcome. Well appointed room with balcony overlooking the river and swimming pool. First class breakfast. Our second visit was as good as the first. The service is excellent and there are good facilities for self-catering if you so wish.

Room Tip: Any of the three fronting the river
