Cape St Francis is a lovely spot, as is Cycads on Sea. Walking distance to the ocean, charming accommodating hosts, great breakfast. All of our needs were met and more so. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom with tub and shower. It was private, yet with a door right out to a lovely deck.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have the best view but downstairs in the front towards the sea is great also

It was my first time in St.Francis, which is a very romantic beautiful town! Cycads on Sea lived up to all my expectations. With very inviting, informative and pleasant owners who just wants you to have a good time. The rooms are bright, big and spacious with a nice area to stay outside. If you are looking for peace and quiet on your holiday, this is it:)

We stayed here for two nights during the summer and really enjoyed it. The rooms are bright and comfortable and you get your own terrace you can sit outside and enjoy some drinks. The beach is within walking distance and the owners are very friendly people who were helpful in giving us restaurant tips. The breakfast was really excellent - one of the best B&Bs we've stayed. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this place to others!

Room Tip: I can't remember if there was a price different, but if not, ask for an upstairs room with a better view of the sea. The downstairs rooms are very nice, but have less of a view.

Great location and the owners (now getting on a bit) couldn't be more pleasant or try harder. Shame that the rooms we saw are very dated, bathrooms even worse and in desperate need of replacement. The room was also a bit smelly. We only stayed one night, I'm afraid we won't be going back.

The hosts, Miemie and Gerhard,made us feel very welcome as this was our first visit to St Francis Bay, which turned out to be a quiet and nice town at the seaside. We spent two nights at the Cycads and would definitly return back. A nice, cooked breakfast is included. The beach easily reached by a short stroll from the guesthouse. The restaurants visited downtown were a big disappointment, however Gerhard made a reservation at the "Five Elements" which was absolutely outstanding and worth alone a visit to St Francis Bay.

Room Tip: we had a nice room with a large bathroom at the front, but would rather choose a room at the back next time as these rooms are cooler.
