“A geat place to reconnect with memories”
Reviewed 13 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Wishing to reconnect after a long absence with the St Francis Bay we frequented for many years left us with a wide choice of possible accomodation. Fortunately we settled on St Franis e-scape. It was more than large enough for the two of us and cosy.It is well equipped and had everything we needed. The owner was helpful and accommodating, always mindful of our needs. We said goodbye to St Francis e-scape after two wonderful weeks with more than just a little bit of sadness. We fell in love with this gorgeous little house.

“Great place to escape”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Great location close to St Francis village, the beach and the links and is easy to find. The house is lovely, well appointed, quiet with a real african feel to it. There is a beautiful view from the top balcony and there was lots of space for the two of us.
We had a very restful and happy stay there.

“Stunningly Beautiful”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was truly a home away from home, the house had everything we needed if not more. Our pug dogs thoroughly enjoyed the big garden. It was so peaceful and quiet, just what we needed coming from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. The town of St Francis had everything we needed including many stunning pet friendly restaurants & spectacular beaches which were a big hit with the little dogs everyday, they slept like logs every night :) We got outstanding service from the owner and manager during our stay whom checked in on us regularly. The only problem we encountered here was that we stayed too SHORT, next time we book, we will stay at least 2 weeks!!! Thank you!!

“A delightful hideaway”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We loved our stay at this delightful spot. Very helpful owner, who sorted out miner problems, from afar via email, very quickly. The only comment I would make is that the access to the accommodation is via a quite steep walkway. We're both in our 70's and relatively fit, but I think the access should be mentioned when promoting the apartment, especially if a family with young children were using it or anyone who would find stairs difficult .
We didn't use the kitchen so can't comment on how well equipped it was.

Hi Elaine! Many thanks for your feedback. I will incorporate the mentioning of the stairs into our accommodation description. We have put it into our information email, but you're right - it should be noted sooner. best regards

“Two humans, two Bassets and a Yorkie e-scape”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

What a magnificent time we had e-scaping from the noise, traffic , hussle and bussle of Johannesburg.

Our trip down with our Fur babies was amazing. They do love galavanting on holidays and this vacation was the best ever. We arrived to a beautifully clean house. The garden was beautifull with lots of foliage. The weather this time of the year was great. A little windy on really hot days but warm enough to head to the beach and swim.

500 meters from the nearest golf course, was just the right thing for Hans. He has a couple of good rounds of golf. I ready lots of books, in the peace of the garden and the patio, and the fur babies had a ball playing around the garden.

The ambience is amazing. it is so quiet you can really hear yourself think. I absolutely loved this. To wake up to bird song was beautifull. Whilst sitting ont he patio we could see and hear and Owl. He sits on top of the neighbours roof and hoot hoots to let you know he is there. Just amazing.

We will definitely be back. to be able to take your fur babies with you and have a lovely holiday without the stress of worrying about them at home, is the best way to go on vacation. The bedroom is massive. The bathroom is lovely. You can stay in for a week without even popping down to the village.

Thanks Mireille for allowing us this peacefull place to share with our fur babies.
