“Wonderful Open Dining Area”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

We stayed one night and upon returning from a local trip found the same apartment available again and were anxious to book it! Cynthia is a very helpful and interesting hostess. We accidentally left a heavy jacket and sweater behind. Nothing to worry about, she had them laying out for us on the return. When my daughter's plans changed and left us in need of communication Cynthia offered to phone her on her personal cell. Amazingly kind and willing to make us comfortable. The property is well appointed and staff exceptionally friendly.

Room Tip: The apartment has no lift, steep staircase which my disabled mother found a bit challenging but for...

This place was a great surprise for us. it is located in a nice area, very close to the sea and with some restaurants in the surroundings.
The owner gave us a very walm and kind welcome and gave us all the needed information abour our short stay.
Wifi is free and very fast if compared to all the others in South Africa. Parking is included in the courtyard.

The apartment we booked was great, especially considering value for money.
Three well equipped rooms and a small lounge with kitchen. Cool.
However bathroom could be a little better and cleaning definitely needs a bit more attention.

Wonderful place, beautiful decor and a fabulous hostess, Cynthia. Room and bed were spacious and the bathroom was beautiful. Lovely dining room and swimming pool area and Fergie the golden retriever is adorable. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

When travelling for business everything is about comfort and smell. a few blocks form the beach, big rooms. Rooms had a nice smell which is essential for any accomodation. The rooms were also big and the beds was great. When I am travelling for business I am not there for scenic views I am there cause I need a good nights sleep in something that feel homley with soft pillows.
The price was also excellent

Room Tip: doesnt matter
