On an 18-day self-drive birdwatching trip around Western & Northern Cape, this was one of the very best B&Bs. Views from the terrace down towards the bay are superb (whales seen distantly from the bedroom!); breakfast was delicious; our room was large, spotlessly clean and well-equipped; and Mary and Jean's hospitality was superb. They welcomed us with tea and cake, and went on to book our dinner reservation in town for us!
For birdwatchers, various fynbos species (including sugarbirds) visit bird feeders in the garden, further adding to the appeal.
