About The Little Sanctuary

The Little Sanctuary overlooks the beautiful Lookout beach and is blessed with panoramic views of the sea, lagoons, and Tsitsikamma Mountains.

The Little Sanctuary has recently undergone an extensive modernization, makeover and upgrade - the results are stunning. The house now features an extra floor to make the most of the views, five double bedrooms, modern kitchen, swimming pool, large garden, built in BBQ, several entertainment areas, with cleaning service included.

This delightful luxury seaside property provides you and your guests with the perfect self catering holiday, located within very short walking distance of the sea, beaches, restaurants and Plettenberg Bay's High Street. The closest restaurant is only a two minute stroll away just meters from the sea.

Verified reviewexcellent

Two nights was definitely too short of a stay in The Little Sanctuary; we didn't want to leave! A perfect house in a perfect location. We spent our afternoons whale watching from the deck, and our nights enjoying the outdoor braai area and beautiful house. I have nothing but good things to say about the service we received during the booking process and during our stay, and we will definitely be recommending this place to anyone who asks about travelling in South Africa!

Wonderful home, nice clean and comfortable rooms, lots of space to relax and entertain with breathtaking views. Angelina contributed to our stay with her charm and help with the washing for a minamal fee. Long walks on the beach following the pathways to Beacon Bay. Easy access to Crags and other activities. Thrown in for good measure were some harmless scorpions, spiders and the most beautiful bird life. I would highly recommend a LOOOONG stay here with time to enjoy the pool and the great little Pub and sea food just at the bottom of the hill
