My wife and I already stayed in Peters Guesthouse back in November 2013. Nevertheless we still remember our stay if it was just a couple of weeks ago and being at home already more than half a year we are still talking about our fantastic stay at Peters house. We have stayed in many guesthouses and hotels all over the world but the stay in Peter’s guesthouse was one of the most memorable stays for us ever.
As part of our 2-weeks roundtrip through South Africa (Garden Route) we stayed 2 nights in Peter’s awesome guesthouse. As many other reviewer already stated Peters house is just stunning. Being on top of the hill with fantastic views over the ocean and wilderness it is a first class location. The house itself has an amazing architecture with lots of glass. So you get the stunning views from almost everywhere inside and outside the house. Furthermore Peter has put art and personal and stylish things inside and outside the house. The overall experience is just WOW!
We stayed in the white room but Peter showed us also the other rooms. All rooms are stunning with lots of special features (like a massage chair in the white room, bio fires in the other two rooms).
But what made our stay really special was Peter himself. He is such a nice, warm, welcoming and fun host! He was very helpful already during the booking process, made dinner reservations for us before we arrived and he gave us lots of recommendations what to do. He convinced us to do a long daytrip over the Swartberg Pass to Prince Albert which was an absolutely worthy trip.
Thank you Peter for being such a great and welcoming host. We loved your yummy breakfasts and the nice chats with you. If we will ever come back to South Africa (and we will!) we will definitely stay again at your guesthouse. And we promise to stay a few days longer then!
Best regards from Germany/Eschborn
