“Can't fault it here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

We stayed here for two nights whilst driving the Garden Route and wished we could have stayed longer. As others have said before, Viv and Gerald are excellent hosts, not just helpful in every way but good company too. The room we had was beautiful with wonderful views across the pool and patio and to the sea. Breakfast we good with a cold buffet and hot servings if wanted. The walk into town is only about 15 minutes and the town itself we found very pleasant and safe. Some lovely beaches around the area too. We really liked Plettenberg Bay, definitely one of the gems of our trip. Recommended restaurants and sites were all good. If you're in Plettenberg, stay here!

Room Tip: Room 3 has the best view.

After traveling for a few weeks throughout South Africa we always induldged back to the days at the Bosavern....
Not only that Viv and Gerald were great hosts, they informed us on all the sights in the area, told us how to make the best of our day and even made reservations at restaurants.
The house has a great view over Plett and the ocean. The rooms are spick and span and the beds the best we had during our whole trip.
We'll be back for sure!

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Lovely clean, light rooms, beautiful bathroom, exceptional standard, run by a local couple who have good tips for trips and restaurants. Large bed which was not always standard at other places.

Room Tip: Had room on living-room level with access to dining area and view.

My partner and I enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing 3 days in this delightful and stylish house overlooking Plett Bay. Viv and Gerald were perfect hosts, ever helpful and with loads of great suggestions for the area. Thoroughly recommended.

Nice and modern guest house, very stylish, good location and not far away from the city, great view, rooms very close to pool area, pleasant stay. Small problem is higher humidity in rooms due to lack of aircondition.

Visited the Bosavern on the recommendation of a friend who stayed there last year. We booked 3 nights B&B as we travelled along the Garden Route. Absolutely stunning with great attention to detail. Vivian runs this B&B Guest House which stands high above Plettenberg Bay. Along with her staff you are looked after royally. The rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable.
Vivian takes great pride in her hospitality and leaves nothing to chance. We were there for Valentines Night and Vivian took it upon herself to book 3 couples into a restaurant as we may have had difficulty getting a booking. We had the option to cancel, if we wished. Gladly we didn't because the restaurant, Nguni, was first class.
The only down side was that we had two days of rain, the first we had encountered in 3 weeks holiday.
If you head to this area you must stay here.

Room Tip: Just book it!!
