              It's rare that you can write a review without even a friendly suggestion to improve anything, but here we are...We wanted for nothing in Casli's Cottage. Everything was clean, modern and comfortable. Even when the weather is dodgy, you can't help but to be drawn out across the expansive lawn and towards the ocean, which fills your view. If you have children who love the little things in nature, prepare to spend hours on the first beach which has about 150 square metres of shells to dig through! Rock pools at low tide are right on your doorstep and are very healthy rock pools with plenty to...

              Caslis Cottage is not only located just 100m away from one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen but is well-equipped, blessed with a stunning view of the ocean, and situated within range of some of the sights East London has to offer. The beach is quiet and there is a lagoon and miles of dune and coast to explore. We saw some dolphins, too. As a self-catering cottage, everything you may need is right there. There is even a hammock you can hang up, a fireplace (in the Luxury Cottage), and extra blankets to cuddle up in. Linda was super-friendly and so helpful, even going so far as to...

              The location of the cottage is superb. Although we arrived late Linda's good directions got us there and the following day she came to see that we had settled in well.We were happy with everything and would recommend this accommodation to others.

              What a wonderful place to have a holiday! The cottage has THE best view ever! Linda's attention to detail makes your stay extremely  comfortable. We will be back over and over again! Thank you again Lindale.
