A beautiful place that my partner and I stayed in for one night! Extremely friendly and welcoming hosts who were very helpful with any questions we had. Close to the sea and to shops and restaurants and lots of cute ducks on site. A simple breakfast is included if you want and the kitchen and general house facilities are available for you to use - they wanted us to make ourselves at home. Sea Room where we spent the night had a lovely view of the sea, especially of the west coast flowers at this time of year. The room had all that we needed, with a lovely big bath and the king size 4 poster bed was amazing and comfy. Decorated really nicely with some lovely touches like rose petals and a little chocolate on arrival. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be back!

A lovely spot for a romantic 2 nights and days away from the city, close to Paternoster but much less charming area. The house is welcoming, stylish and comfortable, we had a romantic bedroom 2 with a superbly comfy king-sized four-poster bed with electric blanket and mosquito net, couch, Victorian bath and fireplace with sunny windows. George was a very friendly and helpful manager and made us feel at home. Wifi was good and helped us get a bit of work done. Goblin's Creek is well situated if you wish to walk on the beach, relax or work around the garden or take short trips to other areas of St Helena Bay region. We brought our own breakfast as we don't eat meat or wheat or sugar or dairy, but there was a basic continental breakfast (cereal and long life milk) available, and filter coffee, black and rooibos tea, and sugar were available for use at any time. Thanks so much for a very pleasant stay!
