Stay Location


Best time to go to Garden Route

The best time to visit this region is in the warmer months of September to April. The Garden Route is rainy throughout the year and is a popular summer destination that can get busy over the Christmas holidays. You will soon understand why, as you feel the warm rays while kloofing, abseiling and paragliding or simply taking a dip in the azure Indian Ocean. The months of May to August are colder but will provide opportunities for whale watching (peaking in September) with more windless days to enjoy.


Family Suite

The Family Suite consists of a small shared balcony and 2 separate bedrooms that share an en-suite bathroom, ideal for families with older children. Rooms are tastefully decorated with finishes and furnishings that reflect the understated luxury throughout the guest house.

Luxury Room- Sea View

Two of the Luxury Rooms can be found on the first floor and both have small balconies with seating. The other 2 Luxury Rooms are on the ground floor and offer slightly more space with an intimate garden area. Furnished in typical French country cottage pieces, the decor provides a classy atmosphere.

Standard Deluxe Room

The Standard Deluxe Rooms offer similar amenities as other rooms except without a sea view. This doesn’t take away from their French-inspired interior or comfortable lounge nook for guests to relax in. Two of these rooms offer guests a lounge area with a sofa bed a child under 13 can make use of.

Honeymoon Suites - Sea View

Expect to fall asleep to the lull of the ocean throughout your honeymoon. Both suites offer guests a king-sized bed, opulent bath, magnificent views, and romantic decor. One of the suites can be found on the upper level and the other on the ground floor, allowing for a bit more space.

Luxury Pool Room

Luxury Pool Rooms are finished with a muted palette and uniquely upholstered chairs and scatters. These rooms are separate from the main house in a block that overlooks the pool, offering a sense of seclusion and privacy. The block also offers guests a breakaway lounge area that guests can use for meetings or small events.

Penthouse Suite

These suites are the epitome of stylish living and can be used by general guests or honeymooners alike. The king-sized bed and wrap-around balcony give way to unbelievable views of the ocean. Guests can enjoy the steam shower, jet bath, or romantic dining table and can also expect to see whales breaching in the bay.
