Beste rus vir jou siel.

Die huis is op die rant van die berg geleë met die mooiste see-uitsig, het seker omtrent 40 dolfyne gesien wat in groep verby geswem het. Eienaars baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Sal weer daar boek.

Best rest for your soul.

The house is located on the ridge of the mountain with the most beautiful sea view, probably saw about 40 dolphins that swam past in groups. Owners very friendly and helpful. Will book there again.

Absolutely stunning location and high quality amenities. Wow!

The location right on top of the ocean is unique and very very impressive. The owner is involved and eager to be of service and it is obvious that she takes pride in looking after the property and the needs of her guests. A brand new Weber replaced a not-so-bad older one - for example. We strongly recommend this venue.

Asemrowend, rustig en dromerig.

Die uitsigte is asemrowend, die area is iets besonders, ons het vir 2 weke gegaan en elke dag iets anders beleef. Die plekkie is besonders netjies, en absoluut pragtig. Ons is ongelooflik bly dat ons die vakansie kon neem. Die seinopvangs, en stadige internet het verseker dat ons nie per ongeluk kon werk nie.

Breathtaking, peaceful and dreamy.

The views are breathtaking, the area is something special, we went for 2 weeks and experienced something different every day. The place is particularly neat, and absolutely beautiful. We are incredibly happy that we were able to take the vacation. The signal reception, and slow internet ensured that we could not accidentally work.

What a view!!!

We had such a lovely stay at Spirit of the Ocean. We loved the views, the sound of the waves! We saw dolphins, whales, lots of birds and some beautiful deer. The Knysna Lourie came to bath in the bird bath! I would be there again in a moment if I could. Loved it

Rustig en vreedsaam.

Pragtige uitsig en natuurskoon. Huis goed ingerig en slaapkamers almal baie privaat uitgelê. Enigste negatief was die baie steil pad binne die reservaat tot by ingang van Ballots.

Quiet and peaceful.

Beautiful view and scenery. House well furnished and bedrooms all very privately laid out. The only negative was the very steep road inside the reserve up to the entrance of Ballots.

Onvergeetlik - 'n lafenis vir die siel!

'n Pragtige huisie, goed toegerus, met 'n onvergeetlike uitsig oor die see en natuur. Van die instrapslag af omvou 'n gasvrye atmosfeer jou met 'n pragtig bos blomme wat vir jou glimlag en 'n persoonlike boodskappie van die eienaar. Elke kamer is 'n lus vir die oog met die mooiste see-uitsigte - beslis 'n plekkie wat winter en somer, heelbo aan ons lysie kom vir toekomstige vakansies!

Unforgettable - a treat for the soul!

A beautiful house, well equipped, with an unforgettable view of the sea and nature. From the moment you step in, a welcoming atmosphere surrounds you with a beautiful bunch of flowers smiling at you and a personal message from the owner. Every room is a feast for the eyes with the most beautiful sea views - definitely a place that is at the top of our list for future holidays, winter and summer!

Saligheid.

Fantastiese huis in 'n fantastiese area. Regte vakansiehuis by die see. Ek is mal oor die Ballotsbaai-area. Sal beslis weer teruggaan soontoe. Perfekte plek om vir paar aande te gaan ontspan weg van stadsgedruis. Bobbejaanspinnekoppe was taamlik volop vir dié wat soos my vrou spinnekop-fobie het.

Blissful.

Fantastic house in a fantastic area. Real holiday home at the beach. I love the Balotts Bay area. Will definitely be returning. Perfect place for a few night's relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Baboon spiders were a bit of a problem especially if you also have a fear of spiders like my wife.
