Definitely a place to revisit. Adri was a very gracious & welcoming hostess. Well stocked self catering cottage, with breathtaking view from the deck. A home away from home. Pristine and beautifully maintained. Had the best nights sleep in a long time. Lovely decor, wonderful views from all windows. Loved it, planning another visit soon with a bunch of the ladies. Woo Hoo! We also requested breakfast as we had an early start, this was hot and delicious and generous!!

What a lovely place, I enjoyed my stay at the Protea Guest house. Adri and Quinton was a very good host and gave advice on what to do they made our honey moon extra special. We will definitely be back soon!

We were warmly welcomed by the owner and the accommodation was lovely.  The heated blankets and heater had been turned on so, on arrival,  the room was as warm as toast.  The room was comfortable and quiet and everything needed for an overnight stay was provided.  We woke up to a most beautiful view of the lagoon.  The breakfast basket was ample and delicious.Johan & Karen Duvenhage, Ballito
