The day we stopped outside Sandy's Beach House I knew we had a winner in every sense of the word.. The house has a wonderful happy vibe and is beautifully furnished and appointed. Location wise we could not have asked for better, the spacious house is an easy walking distance of the lagoon and the pristine beach and has a fabulous view over the lagoon. The hotel and "emergency supplies" Top Shop are both in walking distance. Also, let me not forget the wonderful housekeeper who made us feel right at home. Sandy was friendly and efficient in dealing with my enquiry and booking. She was also kind enough to make splendid recommendations on overnight stops and good places to eat while we were making our way down to Morgan Bay, together with helpful hints and tips on what to do while we were there. We will definitely be returning to Sandy's Beach House.

We have been visiting Sandy's Beach House for the past 5 years with our young family and it is consistently our best holiday spot in SA. Sandy ensures the house is always clean, well looked and totally equipped for a family holiday. Morgan Bay is the ideal place to get away from it all. The lagoon means it is great for small children and the recently renovated hotel is excellent for sundowners and casual suppers. Highly recommended.

We had a 3 night stay at Plankton Beach House in October 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed both the house and Morgan Bay. The house is very large and boasts 2 enormous balconies overlooking the lagoon. From this vantage point we saw an impressive variety of birds including fish eagles and the occasional monkey. Everything is provided to ensure a very enjoyable stay including a well stocked kitchen and outside braai.  The beautiful beach is a few minutes walk away and Double Mouth a short drive or cliff top walk to the south. We visited Kei Mouth and then took the ferry and drove to Trenereys. The road was a bit rough for a normal car but perfectly passable. However, we realised that Morgan Bay is a much nicer place than either Kei Mouth or Trenereys so would not recommend going beyond Kei Mouth. We ate at Yellowtrees a couple of kms away. The food was excellent, particularly the pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven, and it is possible to get wifi access here. The owner, Sandy, was an enormous help in preparing for our trip. Not only providing information relevant to Morgan Bay but also giving us guidance and ideas for other places to see; she responded to emails immediately and was constantly positive and informative. We would recommend Plankton Beach House without hesitation

It was really the greatest holiday ever and we are so very sad that the house is not available this coming Christmas. Your home is so well looked after and lovely - a real home away from home.
