absolutely beautiful, home away from home. The lodge is clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and the food is so well prepared and fresh. Their salmon is to die for.

The environment and the veiw from the lodge is amazing, a breeze of fresh air is my overall experience and will definitely be going back.

We stayed for two nights in this luxury 5 star lodge. Our room and bath room were spacious and fitted with all the ammenities you can wish. Manager and staff were very friendly and helpfull. Drinks offered on arrival. The sea views are stunning, day or night. All soft drinks are on the house. We had a lovely time, but are not sure if we would visit again for reasons below.

Access to 1st, 2nd and 3rd level are via a spiral stair case, not suitable for diabled or less able people. Neither was there a safety plan, fire extinguisher and emergency exots from the 2nd and 3rd floor. Wonder if theTourism Grading Council takes safety into account when grading facilities.

Having been to Sea Star before, when a suggestion to visit a friend for a birthday suprise came about, we knew exactly where to go. Not only does it have the most beautiful pictures on the net, it is exactly what you will find when you arrive there. They have the most amazing staff, that gives exceptional service. It makes the place a home away from home. The views are incredible and the serenity of the place is enough to make you come back. We definately enjoyed our stay and wished it could have been longer... Real value for money!!!

Sea Star Lodge is overlooking the beautiful ocean. We were looking tens of thousands of cormorants fishing below. Morning hikes to the Nature Reserve by the sea is great. Clarissa is perfect hostess, we got a lot of good advice from her about the restaurants, the city and the surroundings. The breakfast in the impressive lounge looking down to the sea was wonderful. The surrounding small towns are interesting and well worth a visit. The coastline is rough and interesting.

The views of the ocean are fantastic and the hospitality is more than great. But to be honest: it is Clarissa who makes this place. She is not only very charming but also the perfect hostess. We Will go back that is for sure an then we will stay longer tha just two days in this perfect B&B

I and my wife visited the guest house for 2 days and nights. The staff are professional and always courteous. The views of the sea are amazing. We were very fortunate to observe the whales frolicking in the bay, so close to shore, it is almost unheard of. We enjoyed the hospitality of all involved. Clarissa is a professional host who is always wanting to know your needs. they are a caring lot. On the point of the TV channels, the 5 channels are enough for those people that realize they are supposed to be on a breakaway from the hustle and bustle of city life AND the 154 useless channels on DSTV which you don't need when actually trying to have a break from everything. When I wanted to watch a bit of cricket on the sport channel that was arranged so options are available on request. Thanks for the visit Ardi. Keep up the good work. Mario & Annalene.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the sea !!!
