Finding such a beautiful home above the Kleinemonde River was a real treat and we had a wonderful stay at Westend House. Anja and Anne were extremely helpful and we will be returning again. We loved the entire experience and the birding was great as well. Ten Stars
Stunning home, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Surrounded by lush vegetation, situated on the Kleinemonde with a distant ocean view from the porch. Great views, great vacation. Can spend my entire life living there!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Westend. The house is very comfortable with the most stunning views from the Balcony. Bird lovers will be in their element. The views from the bathrooms are even beautiful and it is the perfect home to relax with optimum comfort for big families. The Entertainment area is works perfectly and there are 2 places to sit (front or back) to protect for unwanted weather. The maid Florrie is an absolute star and we can't wait for our next visit.
We stayed here for a few days - and hosted a couple of family reunions here.
The house is large, spacious and very comfortable. There are 2 terraces (on different levels) overlooking the river (with sea views in the distance) and a large patio with barbeque and outside dining space. Opening up the large sliding doors links the patio to the house and to the terrace.
The only gripe was with the condition of some of the kitche fittings and utensils. A house this size really needs more plates, cups, bowls etc. and cooking pots etc. to suit large groups. Some of what there was quite elderly, battered or worn out.
Overall - a great experience. We would hesitate to recommend this house to others, especially for the larger group.

The initial wow factor quickly evaporated at this house on the lagoon after we found it to be in serious need of a good clean. The fridge had residue of mouldy food and the ovens were full of grease as were the work survices. We had to wash all crockery,cutlery and cooking utensils before we could use them. As soon as we plugged in the kettle it blew the electrics,luckly the manager was there when this happened,iron was found in bits in the garage there was gheko dirt everywhere. We were a party of 4 mature adults and the only thing we could rave about was the view over the lagoon and the peaceful setting.
