Company information

We moved from Botswana to Plettenberg Bay in March 2014. After a comprehensive search around fifty seven properties in four Garden Route towns, we chose Bayside Lodge because of its fantastic location. We have 25 years experience in hospitality, upmarket lodge management and operations in Zambia and Botswana. We love Plett and all it has to offer our guests. Each day we see this gorgeous place through their eyes and just love it! We offer a warm but unobtrusive atmosphere and most of our guest are visiting Africa for the first time and they enjoy feeling safe as they are assisted with their experience of the Garden route.

Property information

Bayside Lodge is a typical four star graded Bed & Breakfast which is perfectly positioned in a quiet residential area of "Plett" just three minutes walk to Robberg beach and twelve minutes walk to restaurants and shops. We provide four suites with different features plus a swimming pool in a beautiful garden. Guests rave about our breakfasts which cater to all dietary requirements and we provide beach bags, umbrellas, chairs, boogy boards and picnic sets. Three suites are located upstairs in the main house and Finch Cottage is in the garden with its own sitting room/kitchenette as well as a patio and barbecue. We offer welcome drinks and cold/hot facecloths during the briefing during which we offer maps, discounts vouchers and brochures. There is a guest lounge as well as a large patio off the breakfast room. We live on the property and own two well behaved rescue daschunds. Guests love the fact that they can walk home from local restaurants in the evening and it is only a few minute's drive to Robberg Nature Reserve - Plett's no. 1 attraction. We have a generator for electricity when there are power outages and there is a reverse osmosis water filtration system for guests.
