“"Home" - away from home!”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

Anlin Beach House is like going "home" for the December holidays. It has been our 3rd December holiday - 3 weeks long with hosts Dermot & Fran, also Grace, Zukie & Selina. The house and apartments are fully equipped. The beds have 100% cotton sheets & thick duvets. Clean towels, bath and swim every day. Lovely outside shower with Charlotte Rhys soaps and creams in bathrooms. Beach chairs, umbrellas, bags, beach games and bucket & spades are also there for your use. Fran even does a little shopping for you before you arrive. We will go back again and again! The hosts are special people and the staff are warm friendly girls. See you soon!

We stayed in Anlin Beach House in for 3 nights in November 2010. We had an excellent time. The quality of the accommodation is very good and contained everything you could possibly want. I would highly recommend the breakfast which is brought to your apartment each morning. We didn't have sea views from the apartment we stay in (as it says on the website, some apartment do some don't) but a beautiful beach is literally a minutes walk from the house.

We loved it here. The town of Plettenberg Bay is pretty and interesting. Due to our booking mistake, we didn't get to spend much time there, but Fran took excellent care of us. She even helped us find a place to stay the next night, since we'd made that error. We had the room downstairs with the lovely garden right outside our door. That evening, we had burgers on the braai, which was a nice change from all of the restaurants we'd been to. I can't say enough how Fran's helpfulness eased our troubled travelers' minds. We really hope to get back there soon.

We absolutely loved Anlin and hope to visit again soon. The rooms are immaculate; the attention to detail is perfect; our hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming and the setting by glorious Robberg beach is excellent. Fran made us feel at home straight away, and couldn’t have been more obliging, by reserving the best restaurants, loaning DVDs and generally making us feel like VIP guests, while totally respecting our privacy. On our next stay we will try to book the sea view rooms – though the garden rooms are charming, a view of the Indian Ocean would be even nicer.

My husband and I stayed at Anlin Beach House for three nights on our honeymoon and from the moment we arrived we experienced fantastic service. We felt incredibly safe and loved that we were so close to the beach! The beach house was contemporary and well appointed with special attention paid to the little details. You absolutely cannot beat falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to enjoy the beautiful sea view while dining on the patio.

My partner and I were traveling the Garden Route and booked this B&B the night before. We arrived late, exhausted after a 5-hour drive, and Fran could not have been more accommodating. Although it was 11pm she took the time to show us all the amenities of the apartment and took our breakfast order. The apartment was VERY comfortable with all the modern conveniences. It came with a fully-equipped kitchen and all the accessories necessary if one wanted to cook. The weather was a bit chilly so the towel warmers were a nice surprise. The shower was perfect and was stocked with full size toiletries that smelled great. The bed was comfortable and the sheets/linens were really soft and inviting. There was a fresh pin-cushion protea on the desk which was a nice touch. There was an in-room safe for valuables and even a beach bag for your use. The kitchen was stocked with illy coffee, tea, and delicious peanut butter biscuits, as well as a small pitcher of fresh milk. We ended up staying here 3 nights and used it as a base for exploring the area. The Bloukran's Bridge bungy is a short drive away (yes, we did it!) There is a vineyard close by and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon meal there while enjoying a bottle of their bubbly. Fran was a fantastic host...being a native South African she was a wealth of information. She made you feel like you were longtime friends. Her breakfast of fresh fruit, tea/coffee, orange juice, yogurt, homemade muesli, and fresh baked croissants and muffins were just what we needed to fuel ourselves for a day of adventure. We really enjoyed our stay at the Anlin House and would recommend it for anyone traveling the Garden Route looking for a little bit of home-away-from-home comfort. Fran, thanks for making our visit to South Africa so special.

Great accomodation. Super location. Very accessible, friendly and helpful owners who went out of their way to ensure our stay was successful. During our two weeks travelling around South Africa without doubt Anlin was the best accomodation we stayed in.
