We had such a wonderful time at Sedgies on the Water! The room I stayed in overlooked the water - such stunning views! - but the windows had lovely solid blinds making it shady and cool when we wanted to sleep in too. The whole apartment was beautifully clean, well-equipped, and certainly encouraged one to relax. I especially loved that everyone took off their shoes at the door. The hosts were very considerate and we were greeted with a fruit bowl, bottle of wine, chocolates on the pillows - even bug spray for balmy nights spent of the deck - small touches that really made us feel welcome. There is direct access to the lagoon and we swam, sunbathed and rowed out in the little boat provided - what a treat! Sedgefield is a lovely slow town with lovely beaches, a local market and even paragliding from the hill above. I can't wait to stay here again!
I stayed here with my wife and son for a week and we can’t wait to return again.
Following a very warm and informative welcome from the owners Gail and Dudley, you can’t help but be impressed by the wonderful view across the lagoon from the spacious property. You can enjoy the views from two terraces (one covered) or from two of the large bedrooms.
The owners keep everything very clean and well maintained and we slept very soundly on the big comfortable beds. Some of the other features that helped made our stay special was the option to use an outside (but private!) hot & cold shower, bird calls, a closed garage for our car and a big efficient fridge.
Down from the property is a small beach which, due to limited general access from the road, we had to ourselves. A short walk away at the mouth of the lagoon the main beach starts and I’m told it stretches for miles.
Sedgefield itself is a quiet place but it has a decent sized Pick N Pay supermarket and there are good restaurants in the area. On Saturdays there is a big local market selling a wide variety of things including fresh and cooked food.
No hesitation in giving Sedgies on the water a top rating.
What a wonderful place. Stunning views of the lagoon. Ocean waves and be heard. 5 minute walk to a stunning beach. The facilities at the accomodation was excellent. Everything we needed was on hand. It was clean, and well maintaned. There are canoes to be used so you can paddle around the lagoon. One could also go fishing. Really tranquil, peacfeful, nice for rest and relaxtion.
From the moment we entered Sedgies on the Water, we were enchanted by the elegance of the architecture which seemed to pull the outside natural beauty into the very heart of the inside space.... so tranquil, so absolutely what we needed!. And then we saw the writing on the verandah glass wall! Well appointed and blissfully comfortable - we could not have asked for more.
Luxurious accommodation at this B&B with the most equisite view. We felt so comfortable and at home and could have stayed for a month. There were so many sites to see and activities around the area that it was impossible to be bored, but at the same time just relaxing and reading one of the copious books at hand was just as pleasurable. With rowing boats and swims in the lagoon it's a place we'll definitely return to.
The views from the house and from the bedrooms are absolutely stunning. It's a wonderful place to spend a few restful days. Secluded but close to great beaches. My family has a great time here.
Sedgies is a household name in our home and brings with it nothing but the desire to return. The layout is perfect for young children, teens and extended family. There is the space to commune and places to retreat. Everything is neat, comfortable and convenient. We simply love it.
