    A nice comfortable place with that great "bachy" feel. A great location right on the beach, we loved it. Thank you.

    We spent a couple of nights in this accommodation, courtesy of my sister and her husband. What a fantastic cottage - I have never seen anything like in South Africa. Very comfortable, with everything available. The sea on the doorstep, going to sleep with the sound of the waves. Magical! Many thanks for super accommodation.
