Fantastiese ligging, stapafstand van die see via private ingang vanaf oord.

Lekker ruim en gesellige leefhuis met 'n binnenshuise kaggel wat fantasties werk! Dit het katte en honde gereën toe ons daar was! Troeteldier-vriendelike binnehof met gras en sement, baie lekker gewees vir ons 2 hondjies. Heerlike bed in die hoofslaapkamer! Die huisie het onderhoud nodig: Die voordeur se knop het uitgeval, seker a.g.v roes. Die dame by die verhuringskantoor het iemand gestuur om dit reg te maak, maar dit het die volgende dag weer uitgeval. Ook die buiteligte se skroewe moet vervang word. Was heerlik om te kon strand toe stap.

So happy you enjoyed your stay, Leon. Come again soon! You're right about the rust as fast as we fix things, another thing gives in to the vicious sea air, but we keep at it. We now see it as rust-ic charm.

An amazing home.

This home offers character as you enter it. It draws you in as part of the family and leaves you missing the space and warmth when you leave. Ideal location for a short walk to the most beautiful bay in Africa.

Pleasant weekend.

Lovely weekend. It's a pity the dishwasher was broken. Thank you for the discount. The fourth bedroom had no warm water and the braai grid needs to be replaced. We bought new ones and left it there.

Aangename naweek gehad.

Heerlike naweek. Jammer skottelgoedwasser was stukkend. Dankie vir afslag. Vierde slaapkamer geen warm water en braairoosters ook gedaan. Ons het nuwes gekoop en daar gelos.

Dear Mariette,

I appreciate how important a dishwasher is to a holiday experience, but the machine was in for unexpected repairs. I had hoped that the generous discount, and the recommendations for a cleaner, could help you, which I made sure to communicate with you before your arrival. Unfortunately, there was nothing else I could do to change matter.

I pride myself on being available to guests 24/7, as are our agents on site. It's a great pity you didn't let us know about your hot water, it was an oversight due to cleaning agency not putting the switch on and we would have remedied it immediately. Unexpected things happen, and I am always more than willing to attend to any issue promptly. It is most unfortunate that we didn't hear of your distress, as our intention is to always please our guests.

I am sorry your braai grid was broken, and thank you for leaving a new one. It is greatly appreciated. We have taken steps to ask guests to always bring there own, in line with the rental-policy of other Langezandt homes. The rust at the sea seems to erode them too quickly to keep up with the demand.

Aangename regte kusdorp-akkommodasie met 'n lekker kuierplek.

Die huis het als wat mens nodig het met twee addisionele buitekamers en 'n lekker onderdak-braaiplek. Ons het lekker daar gekuier en kan dit aanbeveel.

We had a convenient stay and also hosted a group of family and friends.

By Design Cottage offers everything you need for a getaway near the ocean. We were also able to welcome a group of friends and family in the spacious outdoor braai-area next to the well-equipped kitchen. In the cold, wet weather the thatched roof house was quite cold and we thoroughly enjoyed the using the big fireplace. A heater in the bedroom would be an asset. Although there was no hot water initially, the owner acted quickly to solve the problem. Contrary to the warning of the information leaflet, there was enough toilet paper for our stay, but you have to take your own towels. The hot water bottles and extra blankets were a plus!

Ons het gerieflik gebly en ook 'n groep familie en vriende gemaklik onthaal.

By Design Cottage bied alles wat mens nodig het vir 'n wegbreek naby die see. Ons kon ook met gemak 'n groep vriende en familie onthaal in die ruim buite-braai area vanuit die goed toegeruste kombuis. In die koue nat weer was die grasdakhuis nogal koud en ons het die lekker groot kaggel goed benut. 'n Verwarmer in die slaapkamer sou 'n aanwins wees. Hoewel daar aanvanklik geen warm water was nie, het die eienaar vinnig opgetree om die probleem op te los. In teenstelling met die waarskuwing van die inligtingsblaadjie was daar wel genoeg toiletpapier vir ons verblyf, hoewel mens wel jou eie handdoeke moet saamneem. Die warmwatersakke en ekstra komberse was 'n pluspunt!
