    23 km of unexpected sand road to and from lodge. Also quite far walk to the beach.

    The accommodation was very comfortable in rustic setting. Staff was very friendly.

    Only let down was when booked activity (massage) was cancelled by 3rd party provider 5 minutes before.

    Totally peaceful and relaxed with only the sound of the ocean and birds breaking the silence. Very remote location down 24 kms of unmade road but well worth the careful drive. Plenty of walks and fantastic natural beach and dunes. Luxury chalet lived up to expectations with great food served at breakfast and dinner.

    What's not to like. Maybe the drive to get away from the main highway. Or the fact that you only booked for one night.

    Beautifully located and surrounded by nature reserve along the coast and overlooking enormous sand dunes, estuary. Horse back riding, dune buggy rides or just walking amidst nature. It's all here.

    The only thing that could be better is the set Menus they have,

    The Luxury Chalet where we stayed for the weekend was outstanding direct in the nature with the sound of birds, sea, and the endless view we had. Horses roaming around the Chalet, feeding themselves with natures food.

    Bath was fine but the shower lacked pressure. Can't think of anything else at all.

    Paradise made even better by all the wonderful staff. Just the most amazing location far off the beaten track the only sound being the crashing surf and the birds. Food was excellent and sensible portion sizes.

    The dirt road there is very long and you need to be very careful: my rental car's windscreen got chipped. Make sure you try to avoid the windy season - the wind can be ferocious from about Oct to January!

    Very remote setting - so very tranquil. Staff - exceptionally friendly and helpful. Food is superb chéf Francois is an absolute wizard at turning out wonderfully tasty food

    Nothing. The only thing we could mention was the dirt road to get there which was very difficult to drive with a small car if it is raining.

    We loved to be at that great location with the nature, the sea and the beautiful horses. The food and the wine was delicious and we loved to relax and hike through the dunes and riding the horses (nearly for the first time). Uncle Jack and Flippi, thank you for guiding us on horseback. We would love to come again and stay longer than only two nights.

    - we loved everything. Some other clients mentioned the bad road but if you come from St. Francis Bay it's only the last 2 kilometers that are bumpy.

    - extremely nice staff (espescially I want to mention Casper and Gerome) - great hiking trails, marked by the hotel - very quiet - nice breakfast and dinner - horses roaming on the ground

    No warning that the access road is entirely gravel road for 26 or 28 km (depending on where you come from) and that thus, getting there not only takes ages, but is also tiring in a normal car (4 wheel drive, SUV probably no problem).

    Claire, welcoming us, was one of the assets of this place, since you need a warm welcome after 26, respectively 28 km on gravel road. With sturdy walking boots this place is ideal to unwind, to be pampered by the excellent kitchen staff and to enjoy the beauty of nature (dunes, shoreline, birds and flowers). Very kind, sweet trainee at the moment.
