“Absolutely beautiful, amazing place for a real break!”
Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The simple location of Cliff Top Houses is just perfect! But then once you are in the houses the beauty continues. Everything is thought of in this gorgeously decorated and designed home. The beds are comfy, towels soft and the view, breathtaking. We went of some lovely walks, and enjoyed lighting the fire once home. Sally and Henry are friendly and kind hosts. We can't wait to go back, next time with all our family!!

“Fantastic Location, stunning views, beautiful sorrounding”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had the privilege to enjoy house #8 for a couple of nights.
Smart & transparent architecture with unbeatable, breathtaking sea views from every (!) angle. Wales, dolphins, sea lions and leather-back turtles passing the balcony. Beautiful birds all around the house and further African wildlife very close by. Cliffs to climb, tracks to walk and spots to swim. A wonderful starry sky merging with the sea at night ..... etc. etc.
A perfect dream.

“A world on its own”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Sally and her husband have created a wonderful place in a very peaceful setting of a big natural estate. It is a bit difficult to reach the place, but the reward is unimaginable..... surrounded by nature with the most spectacular views from every corner of the house. Sleeping with the windows open to the sound of the waves......heaven.....
We stayed in house no.8 which has 2 bedrooms. It is an architechtural master piece and well furnished, not too big and very cosy.
I loved being able to hike through the vast estate on the small hiking trails.
We are certainly coming back.

“Paradise Found in the Garden of Eden”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just returned from the most fantastic stay at Cliff Top House.

The house and location are truly amazing and the views are spectacular and take your breath away.

The very personal and wonderful welcome by the Owners, Sally and Henry, was a treat and their enthusiasm for the house was totally infectious.

You could see the pride and love they both took in showing us around.

We enjoyed the best holiday ever at Cliff House and I cannot recommend the place highly enough.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway or retreat in idyllic countryside with the sound of the sea and the waves crashing ashore you could not find a better location.

With lovely walks for the athletic and some great local towns and attractions for the more adventurous there is plenty to do.

And for foodies the kitchen is excellent and there are lovely restaurants and shops located not far away.

I urge you guys and gals to try this place and promise you will not be disappointed.

And a massive thank you to Sally and Henry for their incredible and warm hospitality and for creating such a paradise.

Best wishes

Adam

A fantastic spot to come on holiday too. From booking to departure the owner Sally and her friend Elsie could not have made it easier for us to enjoy our stay.
A quiet house with no TV or WiFI but a view that money cannot buy. House was immaculate clean and every ammenity needed.
We enjoyed our trip so much that we look forward to our next stay in this house.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in Cliff Top house no 8 from 31 March 2016 to 4 April 2016. I was super impressed upon arrival to find everything squeaky clean and neat as a pin! The host, Sally, even took off her shoes to keep the house clean when she showed us around.

The house is just outside George located in a private nature reserve. There's just a few houses making it very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. There's a small bay - Ballots Bay and also walking trails with spectacular views of the ocean.

House number 8 is situated very high up creating the impression that you're in a ship's cabin. :) There's 360 degree views and lots of windows. Most of the windows can be opened allowing a fresh breeze and lots of sunshine. You can sit in the bath and it feels as if you're having a bath outside. The house has 2 spacious bedrooms, both with a double shower and the main bedroom with a huge bath. Both rooms have queen size beds with excellent quality, white linen and good quality mattresses. In each room there's a hair dryer, towels and soap.

It's also worth mentioning that the 2 bedrooms are far from each other so even if your're 2 couples you have privacy.

The kitchen is truly a dream. There's a Smeg oven, Breville espresso maker, sharp knives, Le Creuset pots, pans and stoneware and a Super silent Bosch dishwasher just to name a few. The quality of everything in the kitchen is impressive. There's also a washing machine should you need to do washing - we didn't need to use it.

In the living area there's a fire place which we used on 2 nights - very nice and cosy! There's also board games, books and puzzles. We enjoyed playing games. We never once went out to eat and cooked all our meals including breakfast at the house.

Also very impressed by the beautiful way the house has been decorated as well as the design. Wow. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Francelle, thank you for such a rave review. We feel you have captured the essence of no 8 perfectly and in ways that we perhaps have not - particularly in describing the quality of the furnishings and kitchen equipment. We hope to have you back to stay!
