I dislike the star rating as it is simplistic, and in this case 3 is probably too low, and in most respects 4 would be more accurate.  The first hours were traumatic with legions of ants in two drawers and behind the bed(getting into the bedding), but with the help of Heidi's housesitter some Doom spray and white powder this was resolved and there were no more problems.   We were also given R200 refund from our R900 (a couple for 3 nights).  The cottage is lovely, and comfortable, the gas rings a bit fierce when you first turn them on, but work well, and sitting in the garden with the roar of...

Great private stay with all you need and in walking distance of the beach and shops. The bed and mattress could do with an upgrade, though.Establishments response:I have now changed the mattress and the clients since end-January seem to be very happy, with no problems. Thank you for letting me know about the mattress.
