Stone cottage ist really beautiful place, near to the beach and center. The garden with jacuzzi ist magic and the rooms comfortable and well designed. You can make braai ,have your peace and relax. If I had a backpackers it should look like stone cottage. Oh, the prices are also OK.

We spent 5 lovely nights at Stone Cottage and we are definitely going back! This is such a charming space, beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and run by exceptionally nice people too. We stayed in Pierre, which is great if you want a bit of privacy as it has its own braai area. It also has the best view from the balcony and I am sorry I didn't get more time to laze around there. There is plenty to do in Plett and surrounds so its a great spot for young children. Next time we are inviting friends and hiring all the units for a summer celebration!

In my years of traveling SA I have lodged in few places more wondrous! Stone Cottage has an excellent view and is centrally located in Plett. The space is beautiful and interesting at every glance. Some serious aesthetic eye-candy! An impressive testament to the owner, and her family's generations of artistic expression. There are all the comforts one could desire: dorms, private rooms for all sleeping arrangements; full kitchen, showers, and an inspirational toilet; WiFi, books galore and board games too; but best of all is the braai deck with hot tub! But you know, its the people that make a space into a home, and Annie really keeps that home-space with light hearted professionalism. It was a joy to stay at Stone Cottage. It really was a Home on the Road to me, and I sincerely recommend it to everyone. <3

The location and the view can not be beat. The house itself is incredible! It has been in the same family since it was built 4 generations ago and the character has built up over time. But don't take character to mean it's run down, it's not!! It's amazingly maintained. The views are incredible, especially from the hot tub on the downstairs deck. The owner is so sweet and so is everyone who works with her. The book shelves are stocked with amazing books and the place has everything you need. Prepare to stay in Plett longer than you planned.

Stumbled accross Stone Cottage by chance while searching for accommodation and decided to stay in the Boetie Pierre room which is perfect for a couple or a small family. The rooms were clean and we were able to come and go as we please after booking in and being told how the set-up works. Will def. be staying here again when visiting Plett!

Beautiful place smack bang in the middle of Plett, with a fantastic view over the bay, framed by big leafy trees. The suits are beautifully decorated with found objects, interesting books and quirky vintage bits and bobs, that looks stylish and effortlessly cool, yet still feels cosy and unpretentious. The Boetie Pierre is extremely spacious and has a long private balcony with a criminally comfortable daybed-type sofa... The owners are friendly and welcoming, but also very laid back - that makes for a great do-your-own-thing kind of stay without being checked-in on all the time. Only drawback was a bit of road noise (and a chatty little Scops Owl in the garden!!), but we gathered that from other reviews beforehand, and everything else more than makes up for it. Can't recommend it highly enough - will definitely visit again!

P.S. our Scops Owl seems to have found a new home to chatter.
