"Good for the Soul"

"The accommodation was ideal for what we were looking for..... quiet, chill time. The ever changing views of the sea and the sunsets were soul food. Being able to braai on our balcony was also a bonus. The room was spacious, excellent bed and everything spotlessly clean."

"Die eenheid bied die basiese benodigdhede. Teen die tarief wat gehef word voel ons dat die plekkie op 'n daaglikse basis skoongemaak kan word ( nie teen ekstra koste nie ). Om dieselfde rede glo ek kan toiletpapier meer gereeld as een rolletjie in ses da voorsien word!! Die dakwaaier is nie in instaat om vinniger as die stadige spoed te waai nie, wat in die dag en 'n half van bergwind toestande van geen nut was nie. Die mikrogolfoondjie is nie werkend nie. Maar oor die algemeen het ek en Lin 'n aangename tydjie gehad en saamgestem dat ons weer sal gaan."

"The stay was good, but that "dining table" is too unstable. We lost a couple of drinks, just cutting food!Also NO oven! All the food I bought for self catering needed to be baked, oven heated. I had to go and buy fish next door."

"Comfortable and well positioned, this accommodation is the perfect get away for solitude, rest, quietness and "chillaxing".With a kitchen stocked with all the utensils you need to cook a gourmet meal, one need never leave the accommodation. Lying in bed between quality linen and listening to the waves breaking against the rocks is heaven. A self service establishment so remember to take your own toiletries as the only guest amenity is hand soap.I will be returning and recommend this accommodation without reservation. Thanks Peter and Michelle"
