I almost hesitant to write this review because I want to keep this place a secret for myself! We really enjoyed this relaxing place, in fact after we'd packed up and driven off, we came back - it was too good a spot to miss out on another night. Nick the owner knows his food and casually cooked the most delicious seafood dinners. He is a great source of knowledge about the sea and life in the area. We could also braai there. We loved Basil, The Most Unfaithful (Dog), and he trudged along with us wherever we went. He even slept in our room (by invitation of course!) The lodge is situated overlooking the sea and we enjoyed walking the sea trails, watching the otters, swimming at the unspoilt beaches and generally just watching the ocean. This is definitely a return spot for us.

Excellent place to stay- gorgeous views, great host, perfectly idyllic. Can not recommend highly enough. It’s a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the time if you’re looking to enjoy nature’s beauty. Nick is a great host and has some great animals to keep you company. Wish we had planned to stay a bit longer and take advantage of the hiking trails along the coast.
