Thanda Vista is located in a quiet part of Plettenberg Bay with outstanding views of the ocean. We stayed here as part of a garden route/wine route holiday and can honestly say that it was one of the best guest houses we stayed at. The owner was extremely helpful in respect of suggesting places to visit and recommending local eating places and the breakfast served each morning was nothing short of outstanding! The small touches were always in evidence even down to the national flag of each table's country being placed on the table. A warm welcome, clean and tidy rooms and fabulous food make this a must if yu are visiting Plettenberg Bay. We will definitely return on our next trip to this wonderful country.

What a cool find. The elderly owners really go out of their way to make one feel just cozy and comfortable. He takes his time explaining the surroundings, makes great recommendations, is sweet and friendly. Brekkie is perfect, he even puts a flag our for each nationality that eats there. Rooms are meticulously clean, everything is perfectly taken care of. Even a beach bag sits readily in the closet, waiting to be taken to the strand. The place feels like a home away from home. A true gem.

Plettenberg is abound with good restaurants and shops. The beach.. well, the beach is miles and miles long.. perfect for hours and hours of barefoot walks.

Really great accom with warm hosts. We had the house to ourselves which made for an even more cosy stay. It was so close to the lagoon that we could take beautiful pics of it from our balcony.

Room Tip: All were fabulous

Four of us stayed here on our Garden Route tour and were delighted with the property and the service. When we arrived JP gave us a detailed briefing on the guest house and the area and recommended the best local restaurants. Breakfasts were cooked by Petro and were superb. The house is lovely and the views from the breakfast room and the roof terrace are to die for. Our twin bedded rooms, which were at the back of the house, could have been a bit bigger but were spotless and well fitted out. The guest lounge and facilities were very useful. Two nights was not long enough!

Room Tip: Best views from front bedrooms.
