It's about time we share with other people how wonderful this place is as we stayed for the second time this summer. Beautiful gardens, it's the perfect place for relaxation and this is truly a unique hidden oasis away from the crowds. Attention to detail for a carefree stay and our wonderful hosts made our experience complete. We have fallen...

Outstanding guest house in beautiful surroundings. Colette and Johannes are very attentive and interesting hosts who made our stay all the more enjoyable. The room we stayed in is very spacious and very well designed, we loved the very high specs of the amenities and effort to run a sustainable house. The garden makes Meerlust a wonderful retreat away from...

How nice it is to enjoy your holiday in Meerlust, we had the pleasure to stay in both the suite and one of the other rooms, both very nicely decorated with an eye for detail, good beds and very spacious. We loved the garden and the breakfast everymorning, the ultimate place to get relaxed!

Meerlust is a great place to stay. The owner and staff are very friendly and kind, the garden is lovely and ao is the pool. The beds are very nice, the pillows not. Too thin if you ask me. It was a wonderfull experience to take a shower outside! The breakfast is very rich. But... Personally, i think charging €3...

Dear Eva, thank you for your feedback, I'm happy you liked your two-day-stay with us. Sorry you did not like the feather-pillows, had I known I could have proposed you other options, e.g. a thicker alergy-free or a Tempur pillow. As for the corn nachos and the coke, they are supplementary offers and clearly marked as such, just in case...

Where do you go on your honeymoon? A good question and obviously a very important one. We looked around and Meerlust seemed nice so we booked the Faro suite and...

Collette and Johannes have created a delightful oasis in pinewoods close to the Costa de la luz, surrounded by lavender, and shady wild gardens with hammocks ; with no time pressures, great food and delightful spacious rooms. We came back so laid back we were horizontal - thanks Collette!

Aloha from Hawaii, We stayed at Meerlust Las Ballenas during a family trip to Spain and really enjoyed the location, weather, quiet calm and, of course, the outstanding hospitality of owners Colette and Hans. The food and ambience were top notch, not what you can always expect from a country home off the beaten track. Next time we travel to...
