A very rustic beach house. If you want luxury and upmarket it's not for you - no smart furnishings or persian rugs to be seen but very functional, with everything you need in a self catering establishment. Position is everything. Fantastic river frontage, out of the wind, relaxing and peaceful. A haven for the outdoor person. 7 minutes walk to the beach if you prefer the sea. Good fishing in front of the house. A real Garden Route experience. Excellent springboard to 9 top class golf courses, as well as many Garden Route towns like Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Oudtshoorn and Mossel Bay. The perfect place to kick back and relax on the verandah with a cold one, whilst the barbeque fire in the large braai pit is blazing in front of the river.

- 9 world acclaimed golf courses including Fancourt, Pezula, Oubaai and Pinnacle Point, all within 45km radius.

This is frequently a lovely time to visit, as the days are warm while nights are still cool until about end September. There is not that extreme heat one sometimes gets in summer - its Spring and the flowers and birds are out to play !

Guest Comments

What a special spot for some family and pet friendly R&R! Hosts Glenda and Dave were fantastic and welcoming. The house is needing a little tlc but is extremely comfortable with all the equipment and furnishings one might need - a cosy home in a beautiful setting. The island is fantastic for kids and pets, also soothing for the soul - thank you, we will be back!

An absolutely incredible home. Beautiful views and RIGHT on the water so great for fishing on your doorstep. Absolutely incredible for kids, with lots to do and completely safe. The house and hospitality was absolutely incredible. It was everything we needed for our stay, cannot fault a single thing ! I would highly recommend !

Wonderful place to relax and just spend time with the family. Clean and very neat - will definitely always book it when we return to the area
