Judy and Glen made us very wecome and were extremely helpful as were their staff. The house is quite beautiful as is the food and service. We took the Caribbean Room - fabulous! Views - magic! Nothing was too much trouble for Judy and Glen's guests - everything was done with a smile! A happy couple - a happy home!

My stay here was just fantastic. Glenn and Judy were proabably the best hosts one could ask for and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. The service was excellent, supported by stafff who were just delightful. This guest house had just the right balance of detail without being over bearing.

The views from the guest house were spectacular with a great swimming pool to relax in whilst soaking up the views across the bay.

The walk to the beach is about 10 minutes however, it is advisable to hire a car as the walk back is uphill - and a steep walk at that!. I went horse riding in the area over the course of a couple of days which was excellent.

Plettenberg Bay is a lovely, stylish seaside location on the Garden Route. We stayed at a guest house called 'Ocean Watch' which had (as the name suggests) fabulous views. Very friendly, comfortable and beautifully decorated accommodation near the town centre. One excellent oriental meal at a restaurant called 'Fushi' in the town and a lunch at 'The Lookout' watching dolphins frolicking in the sea (good food but bad service).
Plettenberg Bay is a great place from which to visit places like Knysna and Storms River Mouth and Nature Bay. These are all really worth visiting.

Have recently returned from our first visit to South Africa and this was by far the best bed and breakfast accommodation we had. Great friendliness and hospitality from the owners - nothing was too much trouble. Fabulous views over the ocean, spacious and beautifully furnished and breakfasts to die for - it doesn't get much better than this in a B&B.
