This is a large modern guest house tastefully designed to resemble the deck of a ship and overlooking the beach. It is about 40 minutes by foot along the beach from the centre of town, 10 minutes by car. Welcoming staff, substantial breakfasts under shades overlooking the sea, accurate advice on local restaurants and amenities. We spent hours on our balcony just watching the beach and both sunrise and sunset.
As others have commented, there are no staff from about 8pm; we had no problem but can see this might be a disadvantage. The rooms were modest but adequate as were the bathrooms. There are several steps from the car park to the lounge and the bedrooms which would not suit anyone with mobility problems.
It felt a genuine and individual lodging which we much prefer to the formality of a hotel. We would have no hesitation in staying at Periwinkle again, if we were to return to S Africa but sadly...
