The Chocolate Box was amazing, a beautiful Guest House. The Room was wonderful, an extremely comfortable bed and lots of great touches. Breakfast was wonderful and last but not least the hosts were fantastic and could not do enough for us, lots of great tips about where to go and what to see. Will definitely be back!!

We stayed for 3nights and could have stayed much longer. Nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail was fantastic. It was very stylish very comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was a real treat. The owners were always on hand to make sure everything was just right and offering help and advice. We will be back!

We've recently spent an amazing few days with friends, while all staying at the Chocolate Box. This was in fact not the first time we've stayed there, and we returned because our previous stays were just as memorable.

Nothing to bother, it was just what the pictures tell you: stylish, relaxing, easy going, gorgeous view, amazing breakfast and 2 very nice hosts. We recommend this Guest House to anybody (even that we shouldn't... in case of the risk that it will be booked out for our next stay 😜)

A gem of a find in Gordon's bay South Africa! Wish we'd had longer to stay as the views were amazing, the service impeccable and the location brilliant. I highly recommend a few nights at the chocolate box!

We spent two nights at this delightful Guest House! Excellent friendly service from Olaf and staff. Attention to detail outstanding in the decor, presentation of breakfast and it seems...all they put their hand to. The views from the deck/verandah are spectacular. A great place for a getaway!
