I loved this place - it was very well equipped and private and in a great location. The facilities were fantastic. The restaurant and all the people were very friendly. It was a quick drive to Elands Bay where I went surfing.

We had no tv in the room and also no wi-fi or even cell phone reception. There was not a bath only a shower and the floors was very cold. No slippers and no gowns.

We booked 3 rooms for the family; all very large and comfortable with arm chairs as well as king size beds and soft cotton sheets. spacious and well equipped bathrooms; couldn't have been more comfortable. Big refreshing pool and a short board walk over the dunes to miles of pristine beach with seals, and wide variety of bird life.  food was plentiful from an imaginative menu and freshly cooked, so waiting a little for cooking time was no chore (no kids!).In short everything you would hope for if you are expecting a quiet comfortable rural retreat.
