About Halcyon House

Halcyon House, Plettenberg Bay, is a small, personal 4 star guesthouse in a quiet position close to renowned Robberg Beach, offering sea and mountain views. Our aim is to provide our guests a base from where they can venture out to enjoy the many and varied activities available on the Garden Route and return to relax and unwind in serenity and comfort.

The guesthouse has sunny, spacious living areas and the beach is a 3 minute stroll away. Breakfast (included in rates) is served on the sunny North terrace or beside the swimming pool. Garage parking, DSTV, pool table and internet facilities (for those with laptops) are some of the features at Halcyon, and credit-cards are accepted. We also have a kayak for picnic forays up the beautiful Keurbooms River, and beach equipment (umbrella, towels and boogey-boards).


Fully fitted en-suite bedrooms offer comfortable accommodation at varying prices.
TV, DVD, fan, heating, and safe are standard in all but the budget Coral Room.
