The central location makes it walking distance to shops and amenities but the spectacular views of the mountains, river, lagoon, ocean and beaches are what makes this the ideal place to relax and unwind, with a pool to cool off and a large patio for outside living with our amazing South African climate.

I have just taken over from Judy, that has managed the property for 11 years and with my extensive experience with self catering accommodation, it is going really well and I'm loving what I do and I believe it shows in every little touch I put on the guesthouse as a piece of me, which makes me very proud and happy to be here. Hopefully rubbing off on guest's experience.

The guesthouse is situated on the outskirts of town and in a quiet tranquil corner, with little traffic. We have not encountered much criminal activity and we are down the road from the police station, with regular patrols going past.
