“Our 3rd Stay”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We visit SA as often as we can and each time we do not miss an opportunity to stay with Karin & Jacques at Lilies & Leopards. It is an ideal stop over when driving the garden route, Mossell Bay centre is only 10 minutes away. The accomodation offers a very warm welcome to an impressive and tranquil setting, the rooms are very comfortable providing everything you could possibly need. We will definately be booking again. Thanks also to Nellie who is a credit to Karin & Jacques.

Room Tip: We especially like the Inca room.

Karin really enjoys her home, the location, and providing her guests with a wonderful stay. You can see that she truly loves what she does and it shows in the experience she provides her guests. We only stayed one night on February 15th, 2013, as we traveled between Port Elizabeth and Capetown but we really wished that we had stayed more nights. The view from our balcony was amazing and Mosselbai is a great city to explore. Karin was wonderful even when I ended up walking off with the room key and had to mail it back to her from Capetown, she was all 'no worries' about it.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a great view of the ocean.

The guesthouse has a breathtaking view. Every detail shows very much love. Karen is an extremly friendly host. Fantastic breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit. Karen helped us a lot with organizing a shuttle to a restaurant in Mossel Bay for the evening. Only thing you should consider: it is not possible to walk down to the beach you can see from your balcony- you have to take the car and drive 5 min to a public beach

Room Tip: we were in room stargaze

While traveling the country, I decided to sleep over at Mossel Bay. However, not knowing the place too well, I phoned a friend who advised me to travel a few kilometers further to Dana Bay, and to stay over at Lilies & Leopards. And I am so glad she did.

Dana Bay is a small town right at the sea and driving all the way down you will find this beautifully located guest house. Owner Karin is a very friendly and welcoming host. She showed my room, which was not big, but with the high ceiling gave a more spacious feel. It was spotlessly clean, with a double bed of very good sleeping quality, although in my case the bed could have been a few centimeters longer. The bathroom is not big either but they have created a nice spacious shower. There is a flat screen TV, but 'choice' of channels is with only five options very limited. They also offer WIFI, but when I was there it didn't work during the evening. A big asset is the sea view, which is truly endless.

Breakfast in the morning was great with fresh fruit and yoghurt, some meat and cheeses and eggs cooked to your order. To enjoy this breakfast even more, you can sit outside on the terrace and look down the slopes towards the sea, where even a couple of small bucks were grazing when I was there.

I would rate it with four stars for the room and five stars for the hospitality, breakfast and location.

Thank you Karin, for a lovely stay at your nice guest house.

Me and my family rented 2 rooms and had a perfect time at the B&B.
The owner Karin is one of the nicest person we meet and she was very helpful.
The view ower the ocean is wonderful and it´s nice and quiet.
You do need a car due to the location.
The room is spacios, large fridge and very clean and a nice balcony to relax.
Really nice breakfast.
The husband is doctor and helped me in a situation when i did not have Imodium :)

If weré going back we won´t look for another place
