Wonderful location off the Robberg beach with expansive views and connection to nature. Extremely tastefully conceptualized property with every attention to detail by the owner who ensures the highest standards with her ever welcoming calm presence. Staff is well trained, friendly and extremely helpful in every way. Best breakfasts ever with a view that is to die for. Bright airy feeling everywhere.

The layout for breakfast was great and Richard very accommodating. The check in time could be earlier if one wants to pack your things out and still fit a long beach walk in before sunset. I guess it's easier off season so I am not complaining, just an observation. We will be back
