Wilderness Town of Western Cape

Maurice Pivo - Delightful village- full of "fairyland" character.

Stormsriver Village Town of Tsitsikamma

Chilled out place - Quirky place. Great micro brewery and amazing pizza place across the road with best pizzas in the area. Loads to do in the area. Storms river mouth must be visited along with nature's valley. Unfortunately didn't stay long enough to do canopy tours which look amazing. Food in Marilyn diner was not very good especially when compared to pizzas available across the road but micro brewery made up for food. Still a great place and hope to return soon.

Glenwood (George) Suburb of George

George - George is an amazing town to visit and there is lots to do and see. Plenty of entertainment on weekends like markets and, of course, beautiful beaches and the mountains with the Klein Karoo on the other side. I would highly recommend this town for any tourist or visitor. It is also a beautiful town and very scenic.

Mossel Bay Town of Western Cape

Disappointing - Every time we visit Mossel Bay, we hope things will have improved, but we are always disappointed. It's too big to have that small-town charm anymore, but doesn't have the proper infrastructure of a larger town. It's probably fine if all you're interested in is the beach (which is beautiful), but don't expect fine dining or tourist attractions.

Jongensfontein Town of Stilbaai

A Look At Jongensfontein - I agree with the previous review. It is a delightful little town, on the sea (or ocean) in a pretty part of our country. John Hine, George

Whales - At the right time and in the right spot, whale watching in Witsand provides a wonderful full-day activity.

Paradise found - Stunning sunsets and sunrises, quiet and so beautiful. Easy access from Island to all other fun adventurous activities in Knysna and Garden Route!

Stormsriver Village - Home away from home, nice and peaceful everyone is friendly.

Plettenberg Bay Town of Rietvlei Bitou Valley

Nice place on the garden route - Plettenberg Bay has a really nice beach. Highly recommended to relax one day. If you want to see something else, visit Monkey Land. It is quite interesting and the guides are keen to answer your every question. If you like pizza, visit "The Table" for dinner. Fastest and best pizza in town. Try Marco's ice cream as a dessert!

Riversdale Town of Western Cape

1 night stay at Riversdale - Small community, respectful people. People greet you with a smile. I felt so safe and the place appeared peaceful. The service at the police station was quick and professional. The hospital staff was friendly and helpful. We will visit the place again.

Pezula Golf Estate Suburb of Knysna

Top class! - Challenging but immaculately maintained golf course! What fantastic views!

Luc Tourne
Goose Valley Golf Estate Suburb of Plettenberg Bay

Management need management - Accommodation is stunning, but the course, which is beautiful, albeit too short, is constantly getting four balls upset. Rude, short and care-less attitudes at the actual golf club make our stays there less worthwhile.

Brett Shellard
Goose Valley Golf Estate Suburb of Plettenberg Bay

Estate great; the golf course, not so - Estate is homely and secure. Great views, and well run. The golf course, however, is becoming awful, been a victim of course harassment there at my last stay, made worse by management who try and blame the client as opposed to clear-cut etiquette. Many other courses close by, however, run very differently though which is a pleasure.

Goose Valley Golf Estate Suburb of Plettenberg Bay

Unprofessional Club Etiquette - Played several games there this week as a resident. Besides non-working cart GPS, and shoddy clubhouse service once or twice, I had a 'marshal' argue about a single set of clubs between two players on the 7th, fair enough, fixed it on the 9th. More bullying than anything else according to other players. But intentionally interrupting live play and holding back our game on a dead quiet day is not etiquette. Couldn't have been handled worse, and an uninterested Hutchinson and co. seem incapable of seeing their clients point of view! Disgraceful experience.

Mark Lockwood
Mossel Bay Town of Western Cape

Holiday in Mosselbay - City with a town feeling. Friendly people. We had the best meal at Gipsy Café close to the harbor with excellent service! We would have liked to show our kids how the ships come into the harbor but unfortunately were not allowed inside.

- A lovely safe and clean coastal town. Lots of lovely accommodations. Great lagoon and beaches, interesting artey shops. Who needs Knysna?

Thesen Island Suburb of Knysna

Thesen island as Romance Mania, supplied by Nature. - Gorgeous, fresh. Beautiful to wake up to. Very romantic and adventurous if you're mischievous enough.

Plettenberg Bay Town of Rietvlei Bitou Valley

Plett - Very nice and beautiful view and not too far from Cape Town, I love the beach and everything is very close to each other

Stilbaai Town of Western Cape

Stilbaai - We had the most wonderful time during the easter weekend. Love the town and especially the well stocked Spar and other lovely shops and all the friendly people.

Natures Valley Town of Western Cape

Heaven - Nature's Valley is possibly the most beautiful part of the Garden Route. Unspoilt yet offering a few guesthouses/self-catering places, it's ideal for a few days of relaxing and fresh air. Long walks on the beach or in the forest, hiking trails to suit all ages and fitness levels, photographic heaven, views to die for, a friendly pub/restaurant and little shop for all emergency supplies - if you haven't yet spent a few days there you're missing out on something special.

Francoise Armour

Sedgefield Town of Western Cape

Sedgefield - Beautiful coastal town with a lagoon and lovely beaches. Can really come to relax in this peaceful village! Knysna is only 25 km away!

Dana Bay Suburb of Mossel Bay

Beautiful - I have been on lots of seaside holidays, but Dana Bay is in a different class. I am considering buying property in Dana Bay. This is a peace of heaven.

Heatherlands Suburb of George

Home from home - Heatherlands is an older upper middle class residential suburb in close proximity to the golf course. Forest reserve and botanic gardens with convenience shopping and some other amenities within walking distance. It has excellent mountain views.

Sedgefield Town of Western Cape

Sedgefield - A really quiet and picturesque village along the Garden Route. The lagoon and beaches are very attractive and there are some good restaurants for relaxing.

A real relaxed town - Enjoyed every moment. Had some of the best Fish and Seafood at the VIking Restaurant.

Christo Pretorius

Witsand Town of Western Cape

A delightful town - Witsand is a small, peaceful and friendly town. The attraction is most certainly the lagoon, where waterspouts of all kinds occur, from speed boating, to fishing to skiing and canoeing. It's a great place to be if you are into your water sports. But it also is quiet, and very very safe. Long walks on the beach and around the town are also in order.

Wilderness Town of Western Cape

Heaven on earth... - Wilderness is a paradise! The people are so chilled, and the town is so peaceful and beautiful. A must for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy all the Garden Route has to offer.

Camphers Drift Suburb of George

Camphers Drift - A great place to visit. It's only a few km from some of South Africa's great holiday destinations such as Knysna, Wilderness, Mossel Bay and Tsitsikama.

Hoekwil Town of Garden Route

Close enough to Wilderness - I was not sure if Hoekwil was going to be close enough to Wilderness and was a little hesitant to stay there. But as the accommodation prices were better than in Wilderness I decided to stay there. PERFECT if you want to go to Wilderness but don't pay the expensive beach cottage prices! It has an amazing feeling and a view that will blow you away! A definite YES!

Stormsriver Village - We love this unexpected gem!

Diane Garcia

Stormsriver Village Town of Tsitsikamma

Little magic Eden - Why didn't I ever stop here? I have driven past the village so many times and have just never stop there. The perfect place to stop for lunch or a free forest and picnic. STOP HERE on transit or better spend a night and do any of the many adventure activities...

Ruan

Stilbaai Town of Western Cape

First and lasting impression - Stilbaai was everything people raves about, good for swimming, walking, simply looking over the ocean from your deck. Ample shopping convenience, and dining places. A destination that I will love to return to.
