Excellent accommodation

We had a very pleasant stay. More than our expectations. The guest house is immaculately clean and comfortable. The manager Lammy is very friendly and helpful. You feel at home from the moment you arrive!
Beautiful and relaxed

The two of us and or three kids had a great time here - the beach has to be seen to be believed! The lodge is lovely and the service excellent. My only warning is that our kids got a little freaked out by the number of animal heads on display (especially one hanging over a bed!), especially after having visited them all (alive) in a reserve!
Great stay

Lammy was very good to us and the reserve is a dream.
Highly recommended

We arrived much later than we anticipated as the drive from Cape Town took longer but upon arrival we couldn't have experienced a more welcoming greeting. The accommodation is superb and to wake up in the morning looking out of floor to ceiling windows at zebra and impala wondering about is amazing. The sea and beach are wonderful and the sound of the sea at night lulls you gently to sleep. Breakfast is tailored exactly to your requirements and Lammy is really helpful in letting you know what you can do round and about, and making enquiries/bookings for anything that needs it. The reserve itself is surprisingly large and well-stocked. The game viewing is good - not too much that you bump into it round every corner - it takes some looking for sometimes! But when it's found it's marvellous to see. The beach lapa is lovely - very romantic - and the beach is as close to private as you will ever experience. We just wish we could have stayed for much longer as it was just so perfectly balanced. I'd go back for another stay any time!
