The lodge is in a wonderful location, just a 3 minute walk to a beautiful beach. The area is very safe and has quite a bit to do.
The lodge itself was very relaxing and clean. It made you feel like staying forever! The rooms were spacious and well decorated. The common areas were well kept and comfortable and the balcony had a view of the ocean.
You will be hard pressed to find such a nice place to stay in the area for the great price that they are giving.

It's billed as a boutique backpackers lodge, but it's really a boutique Guest House. And a good one it is. The place only has a few rooms (6? maybe), but the one my wife and I were in on second floor was spotlessly clean and very simple yet tastefully decorated. It had a door leading to a balcony overlooking the mountains and a window overlooking the ocean. Open both up during the day and a wonder breeze comes through the room. Spectacular. The living room and kitchen you share with the owners, but they too are clean and tastefully done. Roof balcony has great view of ocean too.

The beach? Wow, what a beach! And it's a 4 minute walk from the guesthouse. And that is if you walk slow.

About a 10 minute drive away is an Italian joint called Enrico's - one of the best fish/pasta restaurants I ate at in my 25 days in South Africa.

Note this guest house is about 10-15 minute drive from the main area of Plett's Bay. But that is what we liked about it, it was calmer and more secluded than main street. But if you don't have a car, and your doing a taxi everywhere, this place might be too far for you.

Overall, an excellent place. And a GREAT value for the money. (We stayed two nights rather than one like we planned, but could have easily stayed more days)

Stayed on the first floor. Amazing views from the patios overlooking the ocean and hills behind the house. Nice big kitchen, sharing with the owners, but not a problem. Free wifi and can borrow body boards. If the ocean is too cold there is a nice pool close to the house. The local fish restaurant owned by an Italian is very nice and cozy in the evening. Free wifi.
