“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We stayed at Diaz 15 for 10 days and we so much miss the views and the sound of the ocean. The rooms and living areas are spacious and stylishly decorated with breathtaking sea views. Coenie and his staff runs a well organized setup and all the staff are very friendly even on New Years day the lady cleaned our apartment with a smile. Excellent location on the beach and a lovely swimming pool.

Had been booked in for 3 nights at a place just outside Plettenberg which had been highly recommended to us but we were very disappointed so researched the internet for an alternative for our last night.Thankfully we found and booked a suite at Diaz 15.We were warmly welcomed and orientated by out host and there was also a small bottle of complimetary champange-a great touch.The suite was furnished to an extremely high standardand was extremely clean and immaculately presented.The views from the balcony are fantastic and you can access the beach directly from the garden.The host had also booked us in at nearby restaurant as they were often fully booked-again great service.To top all this breakfast is suffered in your room with your eggs cooked to your liking by the wonderful staff.This is fabulous palce to stay and our only regret is that we could not stay longer

After booking on line the day before we arrived at Diaz15 and as it was a quiet time Coenie upgraded us to a large apartment facing the beach with wonderful views from a large balcony. The rooms were superb. Large lounge and bedroom, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. It really was immaculate and spotless. Coenie was a great host, full of chat and information about the area. We were given a complimentary bottle of champagne which was greatly appreciated. Everything about the accommodation was beyond what we expected - it was excellent in every aspect.
Brilliant location on the beach and minutes away from a great restaurant.
What more could you want!

Room Tip: Try a sea facing apartment

Although we have family in SA, we always enjoy a little treat, and Diaz 15 again did NOT disappoint. If anything, I think it has gotten even better. Coenie and his team of familiar faces greeted us as usual with quiet enthusiasm. The views, decor, attention to detail and the list goes on was beyond reproach. It is, as always the breakfast that gets cooked in the apartment that truly blows us away. Even though it was "too cold for the locals" to venture into the water, we enjoyed a couple of sunny balmy days and our return visit truly felt like coming home.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: No lifts - but porters do help, so ask for sea facing corner top unit - the best!

We only stayed for two nights before travelling off for a safari. The property is well situated on the beach front and close to town,restaurants and shops.As we arrived in late afternoon the owners made a reservation at the excellent Kitchen Windows Restaurant just 400 metres away. We had suite 3, a top flooor apartment, with sleeping for at least six people despite there only being the two of us. The accommodation is modern and well equiped, full kitchen,two bathrooms one with walk in shower, quality bath products etc, A/C .Comfortable seating in the lounge and DSTV. Breakfast was freshly prepared in the room by the staff. Secure parking, pleasant gardens and a small pool.The owners are extremely helpful and obliging (they even rang us in the UK to confirm our queries).

We stayed at Diaz 15 for 5 nights as the relaxing end of our 3 week trip through the southern part of South Africa. Our little son 4Y was travelling with us. Diaz 15 is a great, great guesthouse situated directly at the beach. Owners and staff are extraordinary friendly and helpful. For us this was the perfect end of the holiday and perfect relaxation before flying back to Europe.

Room - we had room #5 which was a two bedroom suite on the first floor. It was awesome!!! Very, very spacious with an open kitchen (fridge, cooking facilities, all dishes/cutlery/glasses, toaster, waterkettle, microwave, etc), big dining table in the living room, a 3-seater sofa, a 2-seater sofa, an armchiar, TV and all very tastefully decorated. Big glass windows allow a superb view to the ocean. One separate bathroom with shower, toilet. One smaller room with 2 single beds (ideal obviously for families with kids or a group). Master bedroom had a kingsize bed with comfy beds and also superb view on to the ocean. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with bathtub und toilet. All quite spacious. And then the apartment has an extremely huge balcony with chairs and a small table to sit outside and suck in the fresh breeze from the sea and enjoy a fantastic view on to the ocean and over the garden and pool. You even had a braaii on the balcony. All rooms had aircon. Great apartment, very tastefully decorated and spacious with all facilities you would need (also ideal for those who do not like to go to restaurants that much and do some home-cooking).

Breakfast - really nice as well. They ask you at what time you would like to have your breaklfast and then come to your room at that time next morning and make/bring you the breakfast into your apartment (as they do not have a common breakfast room for all guests). This was pure luxury and you can really hang in (our son enjoyed having breakfast in his pyjamas :-)), enjoy a lovely cooked or continental breakfast (up to your choice and you can change during the course of your stay with 1 day notice) in your apartment and enjoy the view on to the ocean. You have the choice between English breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, potato, tomato,etc) and Continental (which was mainly cold cuts and salad). Either one you choose will be accompanied by toast, jam, cereal and fruitsalad. Also you have juice, milk, coffee and/or tea. Really tasty and you can get a good variety by changing within the days you are there. The ladies preparing the breakfast are very nice and friendly.

Location - Diaz 15 is about 5-10min walk from the towncentre where you can find some restaurants, shopping, etc. There are a few supermarkets within 5-10min drive. The Billabong/Quicksilver surfing outlets are also a 5min drive away. The guesthouse itself is in a quiet street and offeres secured on-site parking. It is directly located at the beach and has direct beach access through an security protected wooden door. The garden is very well maintained and beautiful. The pool has a good size for a guesthouse and they had a few sunbeds with mattress which was very comfy. The beach is very nice...leaving the premises to the left, you can go for shelling easily, leaving to the right you can get to a part where it has - despite the waves - a shallow part where even kids can play in if they do not go far out. Our son loved splashing there. It is soft sand. There are colonies of dolphins that live in the bay and pass by a few times a day if you are lucky. From our balcony we could spot them and they are about 20-50m from the beach. Not talking about a few...we saw about 50-80! And at times there are even more we were told. Fantastic. We didn't believe these typical postcards where the dolphins are surfing with or in the waves...now that we saw it with our own eyes, we believe it and don't think anymore this is photoshop :-)

The owners are also very, very friendly and helpful and were very much concerned about us feeling good. They gave us ideas on what to do or where to go for dinner and pre-booked it for us which was very nice (we liked the "Walskipper" restaurant where you sit with your barefoot in the sand as well as the "Kitchen Windows" which is just 2min walks from Diaz 15 best!!). Upon booking when they heard we were travelling with our 4Y old son, they upgraded us into the 2-bedroom apartment as it was available rather than putting up a third bed in one of the other suites. Also and we believe this is not usual and we haven't experecienced this an awful lot during our global travelling, as our plane from PE was only leaving at 7pm but check-out is at 10am, we asked if we could perhaps stay a little longer till e.g.1pm to bridge the time against paying some fees...we were offered to stay even until 3pm or longer and they refused to take any money from us for this!!! This is absolutely great style and definitely cannot been taken for granted. Hence, a very very big thank you to the Diaz 15 team for making our stay extraordinary and we will definitely come back one day. This is a great place for relaxation and the prximity to the beach is awesome. Definitely recommended, good for families with children too!! Thank you for the great hospitality! Keep on going this way!!!

Room Tip: We had room #5 which was a two bedroom and ideal for families. Great balcony and awesome ocean view!

We stayed 3 nights at fabulous Diaz 15, and was upgraded to a larger apartment with seaside view, fantastic roof top terrace and 4 bedrooms. Taking a morning stroll along the beach in the early morning, a quick swim and then back to a great breakfast prepared by the staff in our apartment, was a bliss! The staff/owner was really friendly and service-minded and helped with restaurant bookings, etc. Will definitely come back to Diaz 15, when in J-bay the next time.
