“Return visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Having visited last year we came back and rented a studio apartment this time.
As last year we had a great time, the apartment had everything we needed and we had a very secluded outdoor patio area for breakfast, lunch, evening drinks etc - and of course a bit of sun-bathing!
Fran, Dermot and their staff look after you so well and are always on hand to suggest things to do and make bookings for restaurants, taxis etc.
A great place to stay and so close to the wonderful Robberg Beach.

Room Tip: Book early otherwise you may be unlucky!

... and it was a great feeling staying at Anlin Beach House as well. Our Seaview room was wonderfull and ahd a good size. Having breakfast at our private sunny terrace was a perfect start. In 2 minutes we were at the beach nearby. Fran's suggestions for the restaurants and other activities were very helpful. We can recomand Anlin Beach House warmly to everyone staying in Plett.

We had 3 nights here as part of our little trip around South Africa. Fran and Dermot could not have been more welcoming or helpful with suggestions ( the table restaurant is a must). Breakfast was lovely , location great, all fab! Just wish the stay could have been longer

We arrived early from a morning Elephant ride, but we were happy to find out they were able to make up our rooms early. We were offered a choice of two rooms because the room we originally reuqested might have felt small with the amount of luggage we were carrying which was very accomdating. we stuck to the seas view room with a balcony which was a very nice room. We loved waking to breakfast on our balcony. Very good suggestions for dinner.

Stayed 3 nights B&B in the bedroom with a balcony on the front of the house. Very friendly welcoming hosts who offered advise on where to go and where to eat without feeling they were intrusive. Good location for exploring the area, enjoyed walking on the beach before breakfast.

Audley Travel selected this accommodation for us, whilst it was the smallest room of our stay in South Africa it was one of our favourites, everything was very clean and orderly and staff were helpful and friendly. I cannot fault this accommodation easy to see why Audley Travel use Anlin House.

We really enjoyed our 5 night stay in the Anlin Beach House. We were in a large apartment upstairs with 2 patiosand everything was very comfortable and clean. It is very convenient to the beach, where we enjoyed swimming every morning. A very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

We rented the garden apartment which had a bedroom, bathroom, and a living room/kitchenette equipped with all utensils and appliances. We enjoyed restaurants nearby, but could have easily cooked in this apartment. We had a lovely private garden that got lots of sunshine. Fran and Dermott gave great advise on where to explore/eat nearby and helped make reservations where needed. Easy 2 minute walk through the neighborhood from the beautiful beach- you can hear the waves from the apartment! They also provide beach towels, bags, umbrellas for your time on the beach to borrow.
