We rented the two bedroom apartment last week and were thoroughly impressed! Fran and Dermott are excellent hosts and cannot do enough to help! The location is awesome under 5 minutes walk to the beach. The apartment is tastefully decorated with its own unique contemporary style and feels like home. You can pay a small supplement and breakfast is set up on the balcony for you at the time you choose, lovely additional touch! Thanks for a great stay!
Try and get a reservation at the Fat Fish, great fish restaurant in town serving delicious sushi!

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment at Anlin House. Our apartment was decorated to a very high standard and we felt like it was home. The bed and rooms are very well sized and we had 2 balconies - one which we enjoyed our breakfast on and the other where we made dinner on the fire. The bathroom was gorgeous with a fantastic shower - enough space for two.

The beach is a very short walk away and it's on the quieter side of Plet so great for chilling out. It's a pity that Anlin doesn't have a sea view but they make up for it in bucket loads in other places. Shower facilities for when you get back from the beach and umbrellas, cooler bags and all sorts of other beach stuff for you to take with.

Amazing to go for a run and head straight for the water to cool off and then come back to a great spread for breakfast.

Fran and Dermott were incredibly welcoming and helpful - recommending and booking restaurants for us and suggesting activities in the area.
The Beach House (top floor apartment) is lovely - bright and airy and well equipped. Breakfast served on the balcony was a special treat.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed here in January 2014 for 2 nights on our 16 day tour of South Africa and it was not enough! Fran was the most gracious host and she hooked us up with great recommendations for dinner (we went to Off the Hook and Nguni and they were both some of our best meals in South Africa) and daily activities. Our garden suite was awesome: free wifi, a half kitchen, a king size bed and plenty of movies from the house's dvd collection. The beach is a 5 minute walk away and it is pretty chill, which is nice if you like to just hang out and not do too much at the beach. Overall, Anlin Beach House was the best place we stayed in South Africa!

We stayed at Anlin Beach House for a week in November, while on our Honeymoon and loved every minute of our stay! We stayed in Garden Suite 2 which had everything that you would ever need, including our own beautiful private garden.
The beach is only a 2 minute walk away, which we found perfect for early morning strolls.
Fran and Dermot were absolutely wonderful hosts, always making sure we had somewhere booked for dinner and offering advice on places to visit.
Zukie, Selena and Grace were fantastic, serving delicious breakfasts every morning, baking lovely biscuits and ensuring our stay was the most comfortable it could be :-)
We would definitely return!

Room Tip: Garden Suite 2 is very private and has a wonderful garden.

We stayed in the smaller room on the upper floor that can be separated from the big appartment. The room was decorated in a lovely contemporary style, yet very cosy and absolutely clean. Breakfast was served on the patio in front of the appartment (seaview). We felt spoilt like kings sitting up there and having breakfast brought up to us! Fran is a very friendly and open host who made us feel very welcome and who has a good knowledge of Plett's restaurant scene so we enjoyed two evenings with delicious food. We were sad to leave after only two days, because this is definitely the place where you could stay longer!

Anlin Beach House is a very comfortable place to stay just 100m from the huge Robberg beach. Nice big rooms and friendly hosts. They have body boards and chairs which you can take to the beach which is a nice touch. The self catering option was a godsend as I was alone and going to restaurants every evening after a few weeks travelling eventually becomes sad and boring although I did go to Longships (formerly Scotty's) which was pretty good and a short walk from ABH.
A very nice stay and I'd certainly book again next time I'm in Plett which I hope will be soon!!
