We have spent a weekend at Maike and Martins beautiful guesthouse and liked it a lot. The very good breakfast, the nice hiking trail in front of the door and the very personal touch will make us come back... Best wishes from Rike and Flo

We spent 3 nights in this spectacular guesthouse and would certainly recommend it to other holiday makers. The rooms are beautiful and bright, the breakfasts were delicious and the hosts are extremely efficient and very friendly. It is also very good value for money well spent.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful and comfortable and spotlessly clean.

We spent 2 nights in Mossel Bay at Avenues Guesthouse. My friend and I were first impressed by the affordability, expecting a not-so-nice place for that price - we are so glad we were wrong!!

It was neat, clean and comfortable. The hosts Mieke and Martin( and their dog, Kimba) were so warm and welcoming. The rooms were well kept and couldnt get over how clean everything was, I'm usually picky about showers and toilets but I had nothing to worry about here!

The guesthouse is well decorated with cute, quirky items that made the place feel homely. The hosts were well organised with a map of the town and all their favourite restaurants clearly marked, this made things so easy for us as we only ate where they recommended and were not disappointed.

Overall thank you for taking care of my bed bug bites from the previous B&B and for following up on our failed Sharkdive visit!

Room Tip: If you are a smoker ask for one with a little private garden at the back!

When you leave a place wishing you were staying another night, that says it all. Mieke and Martin are great hosts and they've thought of it all. Our rooms were beautifully appointed and nothing was too much to get for us at breakfast. Avenues is highly recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

This is a great place to stay. The hosts Mieke and Martin are very warm & welcoming and are good at making you feel at home. We stayed in a room by the garden which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with en suite facilities. The breakfast was more than adequate and for value for money this is an excellent place to stay. Unfortunately being there early in the spring we didn't take advantage of the lovely pool area but I can imagine that in the summertime it would be lovely to soak up the sun there. A good thing is that there is a free taxi service that takes you door to door to certain restaurants and picks you up afterwards. This is a brilliant service as if like us you have driven from Cape Town the chance of a night without driving is great.If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Mossel Bay stay here, its great and very good value for money..

Our host Meike and Martin really made our stay warm and welcoming. They paid attention to the smallest of details from having original menus of the surrounding restaurants to pointing out that we had a flat tyre (which we hadn't noticed! Disaster in the making!) n pumping it up for us, definitely recommended for a home away from home :)

We stayed for only one night. The rooms are spacious and clean and had everything we could have asked for. The bathroom has a lovely walk in shower. The breakfast was also good. There really isnt anything bad to say about this facility or its owners. We will stay there again
