Location

Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

We are situated a 2min walk from Main road where you will find the nicest shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

If you want to go to the beach, it is a 800m walk down hill, but be warned, the return trip (uphill) is not for the faint hearted!!!

Review from Matt / Colorado USA
“You’re lucky if you get to stay here. Beautiful home with unique rooms. Safe and secure. Louis and Trixie are both super kind and helpful. Huge place with everything you could want and walking distance to everything else.
