Very stylish, but also cozy rooms with plenty of details to give each room with a special theme. Great hospitality, perfect service, the hosts are just great :) The breakfast is extraordinary "you can easily skip your lunch" fresh fruit of the season and most important: the cooked breakfast arrives H O T at your lovely set table (even with a little flag of your home country).
Good value for money and for us it was not the last visit for sure.

Room Tip: try to travel out of season and look for a room with sea views

What a wonderful place to stay! A home away from home. The hosts are the friendliest and helpful people I've come across. The location is such that you can enjoy the beautiful view of the surroundings. The breakfast is divine. The flavours and aromas of the coked breakfast are to die for. You are also centrally located so you can hop in the car drive to Keaurbooms,Tsitsikamma or Knysna. Definitely to be noted as one of the places to stay!

LOvely hosts who were very helpful during our trip and readily available. Peaqceful location with wonderful views from the dining room. Pleasant rooms (if a little small) and very clean. Access to internet in lounge at all times, which we found useful.

Room Tip: You rteally could see the sea from our balcony and rooms on the front were bright and sunny.

It must be one of the best places to stay along the Garden Route. Located on the edge of Plettenberg Bay, Thanda Vista is quiet and extremely comfortable. The breakfast is of very high quality and very substantial. The owner has many tips to enhance your stay with recommendations on where to eat and of places of interest locally. A thoroughly great place to stay.

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.
