Reviewed 1 November 2013

JP was the perfect host offering real attention to detail. The view from his rooftop terrace was most relaxing. Sumptuous breakfast cooked to order. Recommended the Lemon Grass restaurant for dinner, which proved to be a good choice.
Bedrooms were a bit on the small side, particularly if travelling with two large suitcases.
Ample parking. Ignore swimming pool rating.

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is so much more to do in the area than we actually had time for. JP the owner of Thanda Vista was an absolute gentlemen, upon arrival he gave us a personal welcome and took the time to give us an introduction to the area and with things to do in and around the bay. The view from our room and the breakfast area was superb, especially from the rooftop terrace. We would definitely recommend to others to stay and spend a few days here.

Close to the beach and centre of town. Quiet suburb

Although the room was on the small size, it was outfitted with everything we could need and we had a great nights sleep. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We were close to amenities and had a lovely view of the bay from our room. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we weren't able to enjoy the balcony, but it was a nice feature to have.

Thanda Vista has not only nice bedrooms with good bathrooms, but also a homely lounge with comfortable seats, boodshelves and TV.
A good breakfast is served in the breakfast room, which has wonderful views over the countryside and the bay.

I stayed in Thanda Vista with my family in September 2013. We have been regular visitors of this area (we live in Cape Town) and have always had different accommodation. I can honestly say that Thanda Vista is the Best place to stay in Plett!
