A comfortable cottage with wonderful staff looking after the house.

Review by Camilla (Cape Town)

We recently stayed at Crannogs with some friends and our children. We couldn’t have wished for a more family friendly, well equipped out house. Having direct access to the beach was bliss.

Goodness, the lady who looks after the house, was our angel.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home. We will be back.

Review by Paula Wright (South Africa)

A wonderful cottage right on the beach. All the amenities to keep the whole family happy - table tennis, snooker, swimming pool, outside shower, dishwasher, Dstv, aircon in bedrooms, great help from Eunice too! What more could we ask for! Thank you for a great weekend in what looks like a well-loved family holiday home. I hope to be back for a much longer stay!

Review by Philip Eloff And Family (Johannesburg)

What a wonderful beach house with everything required, on the most beautiful beach, with great fishing right in front of the house! The staff takes care of everything, leaving us to only have fun!
The spacious house is ideal for the whole family, and great to be able to deal directly with Claire. Hope to be back soon

What an unbelievably beautiful place to stay! Apart from the amazing beach with tidal pool, we never had to tidy up, wash dishes, make beds etc which just added to the relaxing holiday. Loads to do for adults and children. Without a doubt we will be back again

Just a quick note to say thank you for our wonderful stay at Crannog’s Cottage! We had an amazing holiday and the layout of the house suited our family’s needs perfectly. We really appreciated having Eunice and Dolly and they did a great job for us. We loved it and hopefully will be back!!

Review by Samala (Pretoria)

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Crannogs! We loved the house, the view and Eunice was a delight! It was the perfect stay, in the perfect location, in the perfect home. We have decided to adopt Crannogs as our "family holiday home" and will be back at least once a year! Thank you!!!

Review by Tim & Lyndy Hepplewhite (Zurich, Switzerland)

Crannogs is the perfect venue for a relaxing family beach holiday - we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The setting is unbeatable - beach-fronted, with amazing views all along the coast. The kids spent the days chasing from pool to beach to surf to tidal pool, and back again. The house is stunning, and the perfect beach-house - relaxed and welcoming. Thanks for a fantastic holiday!

Review by Paula Eaton (Johannesburg)

This is the perfect destination for a young family. With beachfront access, beautiful swimming beach, rock pools and areas for small children to play, live in domestic help and the comfort of a beautiful homely environment - one could not ask for more. It is also an ideal destination for all weather - good or bad.
