Dis 'n ongelooflike rustige, mooi plek.

Die eienaar Santie is ongelooflik behulpsaam en gaan uit haar pad om gaste welkom en gelukkig te laat voel. Sal nooit weer iewers anders bly.

Fantasties ligging op die strand by Melkbos, maar nie groot genoeg vir 'n gesin nie.

Die eenheid is geadverteer as 'n Tripple Delux Unit vir 4 mense. Die badkamer en slaapkamer is egter een vertrek, met geen sitkamer nie. Daar is geen privaatheid nie - ons het die ouderdomme aangedui van ons tieners. Daar is ook geen spasie om bv. TV te kyk anders as om op die bed te sit nie. Die aircon het nie gewerk nie en geen verduideliking daarvoor is gegee nie.

Baie aangename verblyf met lekker atmosfeer, ruim kuier- en leefspasie naby die see en besighede.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die vertrekke is groot genoeg dat mens spasie het vir jou bagasie. Die kombuis het alles in om self kos voor te berei. Besighede is net 'n entjie daarvandaan en die see sommer net buite die tuinhekkie! Baie dankie, Santie.

Asemrowende uitsigte!

We loved our 1 night stay at 14 Penguin Place, the room was clean and nicely made up and the kitchen is very cute and compact, perfect for a holiday stay and had everything we needed. Santie was quick on the ball when we had a question with regards to the swimming pool (which is not included in your stay, although it looks like it from the pictures) and did allow us to make use of it. With the help of Ronnie (the owner) opening the pool for us, we had a great time and we appreciate it very much. We will def be back and would like to bring some of our friends.

Fantastic location.

My only complaint was that other guests in the unit had access to the kitchen and toilet that belonged to this specific unit. There is no control to avoid other guests to enter this specific unit.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Fantastiese ligging.

Enigste klagte was dat gaste in 'n ander eenheid toegang gehad het tot die kombuis en toilet wat aan hierdie spesifieke eenheid behoort het. Daar is geen kontrole om te verhoed dat die ander eenheid se inwoners nie toegang tot hierdie spesifieke eenheid het nie.

14 Penguin Place Melkbosstrand's response

Die gaste in die ander eenheid was en is glad nie veronderstel om naby die ander eenheid se kombuis en toilet te kom nie. Dit het na my wete nog nooit van tevore gebeur nie, maar hierdie keer het dit beslis gebeur en ek vra om verskoning daarvoor. Glo my dit sal nie weer gebeur nie.

Disappointed - if it wasn't for the sea view and the fact that accommodation was already paid, we would've looked for other accommodation.

Beautiful views of the sea and friendly reception. The photos on the website and the reality are far removed from one another. No mention was made in the advertisement that access to the units is through the house (laundry) is not, nor that other guests are moving in and out of the accommodation units - no privacy. The unit has too many beds and furniture and is very cramped. Mattresses' springs stick in your back and had to be replaced long ago. Maintenance not standard eg. sink drainage pipe runs out into the shower.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Teleurgesteld - as dit nie vir die uitsig oor die see was en die feit dat verblyf klaar betaal was nie het ons ander blyplek gesoek.

Pragtige uitsig op see en vriendelike ontvangs. Die foto's op webwerf en die realiteit is vêr verwyderd van mekaar. Geen melding gemaak in advertensie dat die toegang na die wooneenhede deur die huis (waskamer) is nie en ook nie dat ander gaste in en uitbeweeg deur wooneenheid - geen privaatheid. Wooneenheid het teveel beddens en meubels in en is baie beknop. Matrasse se "springs" steek in jou rug en moes al lankal vervang gewees het. Instandhouding nie op standaard bv. gesigwasbak se afvoerpyp loop in die stort uit.

Even though there was miss communication on certain things, Santie handled everything with so much grace. This woman was born to host guests, she is the best ever. We were accommodated to the point where I actually felt spoilt. Crisp bedding, immaculate cleanliness. The best stay ever. We will sure be back soon.

Eienaar was baie behulpsaam met alles. Het tot ons klere vir ons gewas!

Ons het die bedrading van die kombuis onder die eienaar se aandag gebring. Dit kan gevaarlik wees aangesien soveel elektriese drade en kabels by die "plugs" saam gevoeg word.

Goeie basiese akkommodasie teen 'n billike prys met pragtige ligging op die strand.

Ontbyt bietjie teleurstellend - net vrugtesap, graankos en koffie/tee.

14 Penguin Place Melkbosstrand's response

Ek waardeer die positiewe en opbouende terugvoer. Ek wil egter net daarop wys dat my gastehuis ten volle self-catering is en dat die basiese ontbyt bestaande uit cereals, vrugtesap, koffie en tee wat ek aanbied, nie veronderstel is on n volle gekookte ontbyt te vervang nie, maar bedoel is as n goodwill token vir my gaste. Dit is ingesluit by die prys. Gaste is welkom om n gekookte ontbyt, teen n ekstra tarief, aan te vra.

Lekker om uit te stap op die stoep en oor tuin te kyk na die see. Het dit baie geniet om die strand en swembad vir onsself te hê. Eienaars baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Sal beslis weer gaan.

Die ligging reg op Melkbosstrand is onverbeterlik. Kamer ongelukkig nie van dieselfde gehalte nie, maar die ligging maak op daarvoor.

Ons het die sonsondergang vanaf die stoep voor ons kamer geniet, Lang wandelinge op Melkbosstrand met ons twee Yorkies was onvergeetlik. Ongelukkig is die algehele indruk van 14 Penguin Place dat dit verwaarloos is en nie behoorlik in stand gehou word nie. Dit skep ook 'n "laslappie indruk". Maar ten spyte daarvan was ons naweekverblyf heerlik gewees. Sal ons weer daar bly? Waarskynlik, want dit sal moeilik wees om 'n ander plek met dieselfde ligging en prysklas te vind wat troeteldiervreindelik is.

Peaceful and calm at the ocean.

My short stay at 14 Penguin Place was exactly what I needed. Room with the most ideal sea view, on the beac, small en-suite bathroom (standing and sit shower and a bath). Plus a kitchenette (with complimentary cereal, coffee, milk and juice). The hosts were friendly and down to earth. I recommend this 14 Penguin Place to any couple or single person (on a budget) for a weekend at the sea. It was lovely!

Rustig en kalm by die see.

My kort verblyf by 14 Penguin Place, was presies wat ek gesoek het. 'n Kamer met die mees ideale see-uitsig, op die strand, klein en-suite badkamer (beide staan- en sitstort en 'n bad). Plus 'n klein kombuisie (met gratis pap, koffie, melk en sap). Die gashere is vriendelik en plat op die aarde. Ek sou vir enige enkellopende of paartjie wat graag wou wegbreek vir 'n naweek by die see (op 'n begroting), 14 Penguin Place voorstel. Dit was lekker!

Santie se gasvryheid en karakter is die siel van daai plek.

Santie Loubser het ons werklik soos familie laat voel op ons aankoms. Die kamer wat ons bespreek het was "a room with a view". Dit is net soos op die werfblad, asemrowend. Dit het gevoel soos 'n tweede wittebrood om net te kan opstaan en direk van die kamer strand toe te kan loop. Die prys is billik en die kamer dekor gepas vir die prys. Ons gaan definitief weer bespreek. Dankie Santie vir 'n onvergeetlike naweek.

Die see.

Was baie vriendelik ontvang deur eienaars waarby hulle ons (my man en 7 jarige) na ons verblyf heen begelei het. Toegang to die verblyf vorm deel van eienaar se huis - sou verkies vir 'n afsonderlike toegang. Die uitleg van die verblyf was ongemaklik. Een groot pluspunt van die verblyf is dat dit reg op die strand is.
