                                  Beautifully decorated rooms. Christel went out of her way to make us feel at home. Great breakfast with freshly prepared home made bread. Definitely our favorite choice for stays in Struisbaai.

                                  We really enjoyed our stay at Mermaid Guest House.  The rooms were lovely, the staff was very friendly and there was a lot of choice for breakfast.  My daughter enjoyed the pool and lilos and we felt quite at home.  The steep staircase to the room was a bit difficult to navigate at first but we soon got used to it.  The guest house is in a good location, very close to the beach and shops.  We will definitely stay at Mermaid again if we go to Struisbaai again.

                                  Although we only spent one night at the Mermaid, it was a wonderful experience. Friendly host and staff. Bright and cheery beach decor. Fabulous breakfast including the entertaining birds outside the window. Great reference for dinner at the Pelican by the harbor. And to the Michael Collins Irish Pub right down the road. A great addition to the wonderful memories I'll have of my first visit to South Africa.

                                  We arrived very late due to the train troubles but the manager was there to greet us with a big smile. After 27 hours on the train and 2 hour drive in a dark, we were exhausted. But once we got into our room, we felt at home and relaxed. The room was prepared perfectly - warm and clean. The breakfast was very delicious. Thank you Christine for your very warm hospitality and making our holiday a memorable one.
