The nature surrounding the reserve is beautiful. Loved the sea and the dunes. Staff was friendly and helpful. The dirt road was long and bad. Lots of cows and we drove through cow dung and struggled afterwards to get it off. On all the directions it says that the dirt road stretches for 24km. It is actually over 30km.

My stay was far too short-would have loved to stay another few days!The farm is lovely and the views fantastic-so much better than staying in a guest house in town.Special compliments to the chef - the dinner was great!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Oyster Bay. The staff were so friendly and helpful and we were overjoyed with the wonderful 5 course dinner in the evenings. Excellent value and beautifully served. Nothing was too much trouble including a special arrangement for my non-meat diet. The location is unforgettable and a perfect retreat for a few days. Do not worry about the track road that leads to the hotel.. its a jewel once you arrive.
