“Great Easter Weekend”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Pirates Creek is a great get away place to go to. We were situated on the lake which was a great experience. Weather was a bit offish as it was more wet than dry but still great.
They could possibly consider parked paving for the residence at the lake too as well as maybe a paved pathway leading to the cabins. It was muddy and slippery having to offload your things and walking from the car to the cabin.
Something else comes to mind especially for cabins with a gas braai on the porch as we had. Maybe a small awning above the braai for shelter from the rain when barbecuing.(something to consider).
It was neat and well equipped which made traveling a pleasure not having to cart along lots of unnecessary things. It is situated close to a garage and shops.
A great place and great weekend, loved it. I would recommend it definitely! Thanks guys!

we stayed in the cottage for 2 nights , we had a good time there ..
the place was clean and quite ..
we went on a canoeing trip across the lake , new experience which we enjoyed and have fun (free of charges)
the other night we had a nice BBQ under the moon's light ..
it's a good choice for a weekend relaxing trip .
although i would prefer the Atlantic fabulous view on wilderness beach , but the lake view is nice quite and peacefull ..
i recommended visiting wilderness beach during your stay .

Wilderness being located very much on the National Road (N2) has a constant stream of cars and trucks passing through and VJ&TW were looking for a place that is peaceful and private. We had one night off in our hectic schedules and where in need of a short romantic getaway!

With this in mind we thought it was going to be impossible to find any accommodation that would be adequate, but Pirates Creek not only amazed us but enhanced our visit to this wonderland of birds, beaches and beauty.

The cottage and whole location gave us a very safe feeling. So much so that we forgot to lock our front door - never mind lock we forgot to even close it!

From our Cottage (number 13) we could have been on a remote island for the only sound besides our constant laughter was that of the local birds and the soft lapping the water in the lagoon outside our cottage made. The view over the lagoon from the upstairs balcony did a lot for our romantic night!

As it was self-catering with a restaurant with-in walking distance from us we knew our very bad eating habits will be covered. (Would have loved some ice in the freezer though)

The Cottage has a nice living room area with open plan kitchen and shower bathroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The one bedroom had 3 single beds the other a double bed! The beds and linen where exceptionally clean! The white linen and fluffy pillows and duvet, gave you the feel of being in an upmarket 5 star hotel!

The service Heidi gave us on booking and checking out was above reproach. We had to go look for assistance on check-in; this was partially our fault as there is a number on the office door that we could have phoned. The young lady in the Restaurant gave the receptionist on duty a call and she showed up with-in seconds and explained that the office was actually closed on a Sunday.

Even with small hick-ups we have nothing bad to say about our night at Pirates Creek except – when can we go again????
