“Great energy and extreme beauty!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Love, love, love this place!! The state of the accommodation, communal kitchen and bathrooms are all pretty basic, but it's everything you need. The owners, Che and Sandrine, are wonderful people who make you feel as part of the family right from the start. The premises are very green, with monkeys, birds and giant rabbits always playing nearby. Their very long stretched beach is one of the most stunning beaches I have ever seen (and I've seen many). I've seen dolphins playing in the waves several times a day and that every day.
There's a cosy outside bar that serves drinks for friendly prices and which you can enjoy from your hammock overlooking the swimming pool. At night Che usually makes a fire and he's a great story teller. Sandrine can cook you dinner as well and it's always healthy and delicious.
There are beautiful short and long hikes to do, starting either from the backpackers or close by. Woody Cape is a little off the beaten track, but to me that's one of the things I enjoyed best. I can't stop talking about this place, I just wish I could live there!
I just wish I could live here.

Stayed here a night on the way from East London to Jeffreys Bay. Stunning location situated right nexto Addo Elephant Parks Costal Region, with great sand dunes situated between milk producing farmland (also stunning) and own several kilometers of beach only 2min walk away. Very rustic Accommodation. Good kitchen, eating room and open planned Bar (super cheap drinks). Free WiFi everywhere available. Basic absolution blocks. Great owner, who really makes an effort to make his guests feel welcome. Has a pool. Hosts Music Festival 4 Times a year. Well worth a stop off the beaten path. Good alternative to busy Port Elisabeth.
