Fantastiese uitsig maar te veel haakplekke.

Die huis bied 'n fantastiese uitsig oor die see. Ons kon dolfyne besigtig van die balkon. Ongelukkig is die oprit en die heuwel na die see so steil dat dit glad nie geskik is nie, en daar is baie klippe onder by die strand waaroor jy moet klouter. Waaiers in van die kamers het ook glad nie gewerk nie. Ons moes self afdrooglappe en 'n emmer koop, dit was nie voorsien nie wat nie vooraf gese is. Die opsigter/tuinier was steurend, so dit het nie regtig privaat gevoel nie. Jy kan nie by die voordeure inkom nie en moet deur die agterdeur gaan. Dit is ook nie vooraf gese nie, en die sleutel vir die agterdeur is nie voorsien nie. Die opsigter het dit verskaf. Die agente het eers gese ons skuld ekstra geld, al het ons vol betaal. Ons het hulle gevra vir die WiFi-wagwoord. Dit is nooit voorsien nie, ons moes toe maar in 'n laai grou vir dit. Die WiFi is lekker vinnig en ons het geen probleem gehad om TV te kyk. Die papierwerk wat jy boonop moet teken is belaglik lank, en om alles te kroon is ons valslik beskuldig deur die opsigter dat ons op die mure 'geteken het' (dit was blykbaar vorige mense). Ons was net 'n groep grootmense met niks kinders. In die algeheel het ons die beste van ons vakansie gemaak, en dit was lekker dat die plekkie dierevriendelik was. Dit is goed omhein en daar is beams buite met gewapende reaksie wat jou veilig laat voel het. Die slegste was dat die hele grasperk voor die deck afgesper was met tou wat die uitsig heeltemal bederf het.

Great view but too many hitches.

The house offers a fantastic view of the sea. We could see dolphins from the balcony. Unfortunately, the ramp and the hill to the sea are so steep that they are not suitable at all, and there are many rocks down by the beach that you have to climb over. Fans in some of the rooms also didn't work at all. We had to buy drying cloths and a bucket ourselves, it was not provided which was not said in advance. The caretaker/gardener was disruptive so it didn't really feel private. You can't get in the front doors and have to go through the back door. It was also not told in advance, and the key for the back door was not provided. The caretaker provided it. The agents first said we owed extra money, even though we paid in full. We asked them for the WiFi password. It was never provided, so we had to dig around in a drawer for it. The WiFi is nice and fast and we had no problem watching TV. On top of that, the paperwork you have to sign is ridiculously long, and to top it all off, we were falsely accused by the caretaker of 'drawing' on the walls (apparently it was previous people). We were just a group of adults with no children. Overall we made the most of our holiday and it was nice that the place was pet friendly. It is well fenced and there are beams outside with armed response which made you feel safe. The worst part was that the entire lawn in front of the deck was cordoned off which completely spoiled the view.

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Al die inligting is aan jou voorsien op die WhatsApp wat voor julle aankoms aan jou gestuur is. Die eenheid is naby aan die see, so soms steek die rotse uit en soms is daar sand daaroor. Op die foto's kon jy 'n prentjie vorm van die omgewing. Die opsigter, tuinier, sekuriteitwag, is die persoon wat jou gehelp het met nuwe sleutels vir die slotte, want by die see vervang ons nogal baie slotte.

Mooiste uitsig en lieflike, ruim huis.

Perfek vir 'n rustige gesinswegbreek, en genoeg plek vir almal om ook hulle eie spasie te hê. Die huis is ook baie goed toegerus.

Most beautiful view and lovely, spacious house.

Perfect for a quiet family break, and enough room for everyone to have their own space too. The house is also very well equipped.

Asemrowende uitsig.

Huis is netjies met 'n wonderlike uitsig. Dit is baie styl af na die strand maar dis 'n private strand. Daar was baie walvisse wat ons in die 2 dae kon sien.

Breathtaking view.

House is neat with a wonderful view. It's very style down to the beach but it's a private beach. There were many whales that we could see in the 2 days.

Good location but some touch ups needed to house.

Access to private beach very steep without stairs which meant our grannies unable to access the beach. Only a single car port and very steep drive away inadequate parking for more than one and hard to access. Outside doors didn't close well and downstairs bathrooms needed maintenance (toilet leak, shower hard to close, door handles broken). Lovely sea views and overall a well stocked kitchen, good WiFi and access to Netflix and Disney Plus.

Very nice place in general but a few things they could change.

Lovely house and views and despite the steepness, having access to the beach was great. It was a bit weird however to have the caretaker around every day and the garden service arriving unannounced/unbeknown, felt a bit intruded on and lack of privacy. But overall great time had by all.

Good afternoon Samantha, thank you for your feedback. We were also not aware that the owner had arranged garden services, so apologies for that.
Have added this info to our listings now.

Ongelooflike uitsig op 'n pragtige, stil strand.

Ons het ons kort verblyf hier ongelooflik baie geniet! Die hele plek is omhein en is hondevriendelik, so ons honde kon veilig die plek verken. En die onderste hekkie maak reguit op die strand oop. Die uitsig, veral van die boonste vloer, is ongelooflik! Die oprit na die huis is baie steil, maar ons all wheel drive voertuig kon dit gemaklik hanteer. En die steil opdraand tussen die huis en die strand is ook 'n stewige stappie. Daar is trappe wat help, so ons kon maklik genoeg op en af klim. Maar hou dit wel ingedagte. Die hoeveelheid papierwerk nodig vir die bespreking het my meer as een keer amper laat opgee. Dit is meer soos om 'n langtermynhuurkontrak aan te gaan (met 'n administrasiefooi en deposito wat direk betaal moet word). Die besprekingsproses is dus minder gerieflik as ander plekke wat ons al op die webtuiste bespreek het. Dit gesê, dit was so die moeite werd! Die huis het baie spasie, met 'n wonderlike oopplan-sitkamer/eetkamer/kombuisarea. Die kombuis is goed toegerus. En ons kon op die TV inteken met ons eie Netflix-rekening. Die WiFi is nie heeltemal so goed soos ons s'n in die stad nie, maar was goed genoeg om in kontak te kon bly met die wêreld so veel soos ons wou. Daar is goeie wegneemeteplekke in die omgewing as jy nie wil kosmaak nie (Indiese kos, seekos, roomys!). Al voel die huis asof dit op 'n tropiese eiland in die middel van die oseaan is, kan jy binne 5 km of so wegneemetes kry. Die strand is fantasties. Ons het hierdie plek gekies omdat die strand honde-vriendelik is. Groot dele van die strand het klippe, waaroor ons mal is. Soveel nuut om te sien elke keer wat jy stap. En die swemstrand is verder langs die kus af, so hierdie stuk strand is regtig lekker stil (ten minste was begin Desember toe ons daar was). En met die ongelooflike uitsig van bo af, voel dit of jy permanent op die strand is. Ek wens ons kon langer bly. Ek sal absoluut die plek aanbeveel!

Incredible view on a beautiful, quiet beach.

We really enjoyed our short stay here! The whole place is fenced and dog friendly, so our dogs could explore the place safely. And the lower gate opens straight onto the beach. The view, especially from the top floor, is amazing! The driveway to the house is very steep, but our all wheel drive vehicle was able to handle it comfortably. And the steep uphill between the house and the beach is also a steep walk. There are stairs that help, so we were able to get up and down easily enough. But do keep this in mind. The amount of paperwork required for the reservation almost made me give up more than once. It's more like entering into a long-term lease (with an administration fee and deposit to be paid directly). The booking process is therefore less convenient than other places we have already booked on the website. That said, it was so worth it! The house has plenty of space, with a wonderful open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is well equipped. And we could subscribe to the TV with our own Netflix account. The WiFi is not quite as good as ours in the city, but was good enough to keep in touch with the world as much as we wanted. There are good takeaways in the area if you don't want to cook (Indian food, seafood, ice cream!). Even though the house feels like it's on a tropical island in the middle of the ocean, you can find takeaway within 5 km or so. The beach is fantastic. We chose this location because the beach is dog friendly. Large parts of the beach have rocks, which we love. So much new to see every time you walk. And the swimming beach is further down the coast, so this stretch of beach is really nice and quiet (at least it was in early December when we were there). And with the incredible view from the top, it feels like you're permanently on the beach. I wish we could stay longer. I would absolutely recommend the place!

Uitsig asemrowend, netheid en higiëne van plek swak.

Strand uitsig pragtig, algehele toestand van woonplek swak en slordig, storte vuil en handdoeke nie na wense vir gebruik nie. Moet self van die eetgerei skrop om dit te kan gebruik en die potte is sonder handvatsels. Nie goeie beeld van plek nie. Baie geld vir swak diens.

Breathtaking view. Poor neatness and hygiene.

Beautiful view of the beach. General state of accommodation poor and untidy, showers are dirty and the towels not up to standard. Had to clean the cutlery myself before it could be used and tte pots didn't have handles. Not a good image of this place. A lot of money for poor service.
