Guest Comments

We could not gain access to the beach or lagoon, as we did not have a residence card & the manager said we could not get one. We had to pay R49 every time we wanted to visit the beach or R20pp every time.
We were not informed that the house used pre-paid electricity nor where the meter was & the house ran out of electricity.
Microwave was dirty and house not very clean
Blinds are faded & no blinds in front of doors,sun access spoilt sleep-ins.
Chairs were broken
Cracked/broken toilet seat that was never repaired
Grater rusted
We were handed keys at door, not even informed what & where everything is.


Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
