“Very charming”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We've had a very warm welcome in this lovely - ecofriendly place, situated 5 minutes walk from the beach and te centre of Plett. Our room Leonard with seaview has a nice terrace, next to the joint picknicktable and jacuzzi. The room is beautiful furnished, and is equipped with a kitchenette and private bathroom. Eliza and G were very helpfull and enthusiastic; they arranged some trips for us and gave the suggestion for a hike at Robberg. Robberg was one of the highlights of oud holiday; what an amazing hike this was... Thank you so much for your care.

Very nice, comfortable and large family room with kitchen, fireplace, big balcony with fantastic view over the sea. Access to jacuzzi in the common area. Well situated near the central beach, shops and restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff. We felt at home in the Stone Cottage. We would have loved to stay longer.

I have had the pleasure of staying here a few times,your host Anni Le Roux is an Artist whose family home she has turned into the most amazing visual feast of many years of creativity coming to fruition. Not only is the Stone cottage a beautiful , clean and relaxed environment it also has an epic view of Plettenberg bay. It is very central, one can literally experience plett on foot . I will most definitely come back time and time again.

Room Tip: Staying the Love Cave if you can

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in a private room in the backpackers. The decorations are beautiful and you can find intricate, lovely and creative details around the entire house and garden. The owner, Annie, was kind and sweet and even gave us a ride to a nearby grocery store, showing us secret spots around town for whale viewing. We did a great hike to in the Robberg park based on her suggestions. Also, this is the first place that we've stayed with a thorough recycling program; they even collect soft plastics that are used to create 'wish bricks' as part of a community recycled art program. We had a great time here!

We had such a great time staying in our Boetie Pierre Suite. The cottage is gorgeous, the location is perfect, and the view from the balcony is absolutely breath-taking. You will not be disappointed.

We can't wait to go back!

Very nice rooms on a perfect spot. Nice terrace and everything was there for breakfast in the kitchen. Pity the springs of the mattresses are really bad! For that price we suggest to change the mattresses of the big bed and of the 2 single beds.

Thank you very much for your review! Your input is greatly appreciated!
Sorry to hear the beds were "springy" - and hope your didn't walk away with a creaky back - but rather light, love, art, happy memories and inspiration! Please come back for more! Sending you positive energy and love
