Mooi kamers met 'n prentjie mooi uitsig!

Netjiese kamers met 'n ongelooflike uitsig oor die see. Baie aangename eienaars. Ontbyt was ook heerlik. Sal Oystercatcher Lodge vir enigiemand aanbeveel.

Absoluut fantasties

Alles is perfek - die kamer, uitsig, ontbyt. Luc en Sue is so gasvry en laat mens dadelik tuis voel. Daar is baie aandag aan detail gegee en die hele plek is luuks en pragtig. Defnitief die hoogtepunt van my tyd in die Wes-Kaap!

Amazing experience.

Staying at the Oystercatcher was an amazing experience. Sue and Luke are amazing hosts that take the time to interact with their guests and even help with assisting to make dinner reservations at other various other establishments in the area. It was not the first time we had been there, however the experience was just as amazing as the first time.

Elegant met verruklike ligging.

Oystercatcher Lodge is al sy sterre werd. Die ligging is ongelooflik so op die see met die pragtigste sonsondergange en opkomste - albei in en uit die see onderskeidelik. Die diens is tops en die akkommodasie elegant. Heerlike vars voorbereide ontbyt en beslis uitstekende waarde vir geld. Ons kom graag weer terug.

Wens ek kon langer daar bly. Die gasheer en gasvrou was ongelooflik.

Wens ek kon langer daar bly, naweek was te kort. Die gasheer en gasvrou was ongelooflik. Ligging van die Lodge is baie goed. Baie om te doen en sien in die omgewing, maar ook 'n plek waar mens weer kan stil word en naby die natuur voel. Kan die lodge absoluut aanbeveel en sal graag eendag weer wil gaan. Ontbyt was heerlik en groot verskeidenheid. Die kamers is goed ingerig en skoon. Die bed het lekker geslaap. Iets wat mens nie altyd teëkom nie. Siende dat ons van Gauteng kom en misdaad vrees, was ek nie die aand bang daar nie.

Dear Carine
Many thanks for taking the time to do a report on your recent stay at the Oystercatcher. We are so pleased you found everything to your complete satisfaction and that you also enjoyed the quietness and beauty of the surrounding area.

Rusplek vir die siel.

Met die mooiste skilderagtige sonsondergange en die see 270-grade om jou is hierdie seker een van my gunsteling rusplekke. Daar is soveel ekstra detail wat in jou verblyf gaan, hulle gaan daardie ekstra myl! Van 'n skulpie en sjokolade op jou verwelkomingsbriefie tot ontbyt met tuisgebakte Sweedse brood. En opregte vriendelike gasvryheid soos nog nooit tevore. Ek moes 'n stukkie van my hart daar los so mooi is dit. Ek gaan vir seker weer!

Oystercatcher Lodge is a world class facility! You couldn't ask for a better location - literally on the beach. Great attention to detail in the rooms and throughout the lodge. Sue and Luc are the best hosts we've had anywhere in the world. We can't wait to return with more family members!

St Helena is ongerep, die uitsig uit jou kamer slaan jou asem weg. Die gastehuis was die beste waarde vir geld gedurende ons 10 dae reis. Ons gaan beslis weer terug!

Oystercatcher Lodge was one of the highlights of our honeymoon!

Luc and Sue are amazingly friendly, hospitable and professional. The breakfasts were great. I recommend the "gooi-gooi" omelette - an entire bacon and eggs breakfast with mushrooms and fried tomato. The location is wonderful with views of St Helena and Britannia Bay. There isn't really a swimming beach nearby, but the water is too cold to swim anyway and we wanted to rest. The pool isn't too cold (around the end of March) and is a saltwater pool so it doesn't burn your eyes. Everything was clean and neat. Our room (on the left, downstairs, in the corner) had a big bath and shower. Rooms are cleaned every morning, beds made and curtains opened. Chocolates left on the pillow every night, shutters closed and bed lamps switched on. This happened without us even knowing it when we had left for breakfast or otherwise. There's an honesty bar for drinks (you write up what you've had in a register and pay at the end of your stay). In general one gets the feeling that one is staying in a guesthouse overseas and not in SA. Would recommend it to anyone.

Oystercatcher was een van die hoogtepunte van ons wittebrood!

Luc en Sue is ongelooflik vriendelik, gasvry en professioneel. Die ontbyte was uit die boonste rakke. Ek beveel veral die "gooi-gooi" omelet aan - 'n hele spek-en-eiers ontbyt in 'n omelet met sampioene en gebraaide tamaties daarby. Die ligging is wonderlik met uitsigte oor St. Helenabaai en Britanniabaai. Daar is nie eintlik 'n swemstrand naby nie, maar die water is in elk geval te koud en ons wou net rus so het glad nie omgegee nie. Die swembad is nie te koud nie (rondom einde Maart), en is 'n soutwater swembad as ek dit nie mis het nie, so brand ook nie mens se oë soos 'n chloor swembad nie. Alles is skoon en netjies onderhou. Ons kamer (links onder in die hoek op die foto hiernaas) het 'n groot bad en stort gehad. Kamers word elke oggend reggemaak, beddens opgemaak en gordyne/hortjies word oopgemaak. Elke aand is 'n sjokoladetjie op ons kussings gelos, hortjies toegetrek en bedlampies aangeskakel. Dit alles gebeur sonder dat mens dit agterkom terwyl mens ontbyt eet of andersins die kamer verlaat. Daar is 'n "honesty-bar" waar mens jouself kan help tot drankies solank jy dit opskryf in die register en dan aan die einde betaal as jy uitteken. Oor die algemeen kry mens die gevoel dat jy in 'n oorsese gastehuis bly eerder as in Suid-Afrika en ek sal dit aanbeveel aan enigiemand.

Very relaxing, friendly and professional hosts, outstanding location and views.

A perfect location if you are looking for a peaceful getaway. Accommodation and cleanliness is 5 star quality. The breakfast is good with different little treats every morning such as fresh home made breads or muffins. We stayed for 2 nights, but should have stayed an extra night or two. Definitely recommend.

Dis my tweede besoek aan die Oystercatcher Lodge. Sue en Luc bly uitstekende gasheer en gasvrou. Dit voel of mens by ou vriende gaan kuier. Niks word ontsien om jou verblyf te vergemaklik. Sal verseker dit aanbeveel aan almal en sal weer gaan. Nogmaals baie dankie!

Luxury accommodation with a lovely sea view.

If you prefer 4 star luxury with beautiful sea views and in close proximity to all the West Coast towns such as Paternoster, Jacobsbay, Velddrif, Saldanha, Langebaan etc. then Oystercatcher Lodge at Shelley Point, St Helena Bay would be perfect for you. I stayed at Oystercatcher Lodge for 3 comfortable nights. During the day I explored all the West Coast towns in the area and went for lovely sunset walks on the beach. Each room has a lovely sea view. Guests are treated by friendly service and helpful advice on activities and things to do and see in the area. If however a true West Coast experience is what you are after, then St Helana Bay might not be for you, the industrial feel of St Helena Bay itself and the palm trees and white mansions of the Shelley Point development lacks that true West Coast charm, warmth and character you will find in Jacobsbay, Paternoster, Velddrif and Lambertsbay. I myself was after that true West Coast experience and the more laid back charm of the characteristic west coast villages â?¦ however Oystercatcher Lodge was a lovely oasis for the 3 nights I stayed over.
