About Hibiscus House Bed and Breakfast

Hibiscus House Bed and Breakfast is charming and affordable accommodation on the east bank of the tidal Goukou River. It is a very cosy and attractive guest house with three en-suite rooms and a small cottage with one en-suite room. The guest house is en route to the main beach, and 350 m away from Stilbaai's popular restaurants, a small supermarket, liquor stores and a popular pub.The three en-suite double rooms are attached to the main house and the cottage is separate with its own facilities and a choice between self-catering and bed and breakfast. There is a washing machine, a tumble-dryer, a TV, refrigerator, barbecue facilities, a large lounge with selection of books and a large upstairs sun deck with spectacular views of river. There is a baby cot available on request and kids of all ages are welcome.We offer a tranquil atmosphere, good food and beautiful views of the ever-changing river and its bird life. We are within walking distance of the main blue flag beach. It is ideal for nature lovers, eco-tourists and those who enjoy peace and quiet. The rooms have sliding doors opening onto a large sundeck where you can sit and watch the sunset over the river. The guest house has a comfortable lounge, dining area and barbecue facilities outside for great entertainment. Sumptuous breakfasts are prepared and served by your hosts in the dining area or outside on the deck. Fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, relaxing next to the river, bird watching and relaxing barbecues are all ways guests can spend their days. Kids can catch small fish, crabs and prawns in the river to keep them busy. We can advise you on where the best spots are to do some fishing. We offer a two-person canoe and two paddle ski's for guests' enjoyment.

Beach: We are located one kilometer (easy walking) from the main beach of Stilbaai. The tidal Goukou River is directly in front of the house - giving a great playing area for children. Plenty of birdlife, spectacular sunsets, ever changing river.

Wedding Venues: We have had many honeymooners staying with us. Directly opposite Hibiscus House is the stunning TUIN-OP-DIE-BRAK FYNBOS PARK - with a roman type sandstone arch. Many bridal couples have been photographed there.

Family friendly: A large lawn to play on, directly next to the river bank, with a wild fig tree to climb in and a rope to swing from. A two man canoe is available - and ask nicely and I will lend you a rigged fishing rod or two.

Romantic: This is a beautiful house, set on the east bank of a tidal river. All rooms face the river. What more romantic does one want ?

We had a really lovely stay at Hibiscus House in a self catering capacity.  The facilities are great, and Mike was a helpful and accommodating host.  He was also a hive of information about nature and shared some interesting facts with us.  We were sorry we were only staying one night!  We will definitely make a plan to stay again when we are back in SA.
