I walked in the front door at sunset time..... ran through the place directly to terrace and there it was: the most stunning view I´ve seen. We´ve spent 11 days there and enjoyed it very much. However, the rooms and appartments are very different. The rooms with "ocean view" are really spectacular. The room I originally had, with "partial ocean view" was very dark. Yes, one could see the ocean, but only through a small window. And that was the only daylight, which was a little depressing. I was able to change rooms and enjoyed every moment of this great place. Service (housekeeping and breakfast servcice) was very friendly and helpful. Marnie´s assistant needs to show a bit more enthusiasm and empathy. Russell cooked for us on the first evening and we enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal. To make up for all the good food in South Africa I would have appreciated a gym or fitness room, which is not offered in this guest house. So thanks to Marnie and Russell for making us feel at home. I have already booked my next trip to the 52 de Wet in March!
