Rustig, lekker privaat en baie geniet.

Die ruim woonstel was baie gemaklik vir ons gesin van vier. Dit was baie skoon en netjies en alles nodig was voorsien. Die binnebraai was ook 'n groot bonus, veral vir die koel aande en as windjie so 'n bietjie druk en dan natuurlik die pragtige uitsig van die see en die lekker koel seelug wat alles komplementeer. Ons sal definitief weer 'n bespreking doen. Dankie Michelle, ons tydjie was onvergeetlik.

Gerieflike verblyf met 'n see-uitsig.

As 'n geselskap van 2 het ons gerieflik gebly vir 7 nagte, mooi uitsig oor Tafelberg en die see en die toegeboude stoep met binnebraai was 'n wenner met die Suidooster wat gewaai het. Die eienaars was vriendelik en behulpsaam. Sal enige tyd weer hier oorbly.

Alles was baie gerieflik. Ons het lekker gerus. Klein dingetjies soos 'n mikrogolfdeksel en besem kort. Die webtuiste dui aan daar is DStv, maar daar is NETFLIX. Hierdie dinge het ons nie gepla nie, maar kan reggestel word.

Very clean and neat.

I wasn't there often, just slept there. The two apartments are right next to each other so if the people moved around, early and late, you could hear everything. I'm a very light sleeper so it's understandable.

Baie skoon en netjies.

Ek was nie baie daar gewees nie, net daar geslaap. Die twee woonstelle is reg langs mekaar so as die mense langs rondbeweeg het, vroeg en laat, kon jy als hoor. Ek is 'n baie ligte slaper so dis verstaanbaar.

A beautiful apartment that is well-equipped for a wonderful visit to the beautiful Melkbosstrand.

Thank you for a wonderful visit with beautiful views and the noise of the sea in your ears as you crawl under the cozy blankets after a turbulent day. 8 on Penguin certainly offers good value for money and I will definitely visit again, but I would like to spend more time enjoying the apartment sincerely, because this time we just slept there. Thank you very much.

'n Pragtige woonstel wat goed toegerus is vir 'n heerlike kuier in die mooie Melkbosstrand.

Baie dankie vir 'n heerlike kuier met pragtige uitsigte en die gedruis van die see in jou ore as jy onder die knus komberse inkruip na 'n woelige dag. 8 on Penguin bied vir seker goeie waarde vir geld en sal ek beslis weer kom kuier, maar sal ek graag meer tyd wil spandeer om die woonstel opreg te geniet, want ons het die keer omtrent maar net daar geslaap. Met baie dank.

One of the best stays we have ever stayed at.

I would recommend it to anyone, it was clean, neat, the view was very great, the sunset was beautiful, the tranquillity and the beautiful beach. The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home, gave us a sack of wood and milk so that we wouldn't have to drive again, very friendly, wishing we could have stayed longer.

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

Een van die beste verblyf waar ons nog tuisgegaan het.

Ek sal dit vir enige iemand aanbeveel, dit was skoon, netjies, uitsig was baie mooi, sonsondergang was pragtig, die rustigheid en die mooi strand. Die eienaars het uit hulle pad uit gegaan om ons tuis te laat voel, het vir ons 'n sak hout en melk gegee dat ons nie weer hoef te ry nie, baie vriendelik, wens ons kon langer daar gebly het.
