Uitsonderlike warm gasvryheid.

Ons het absoluut heerlik gebly by Cheryl en Ian. Hulle was seker die beste gasheer en -vrou wat ek al ooit teëgekom het. Hulle het ons en ons kinders so welkom laat voel en uit hulle pad gegaan om Keimond se hoogtepunte aan ons uit te lig. Die verblyf is baie netjies met alles wat jy nodig het om self kos te maak en selfs wasgoed te was.

Exceptional warm hospitality.

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Cheryl and Ian's place. They were probably the best host and wife I have ever encountered. They made us and our children feel so welcome and went out of their way to highlight Keimond's highlights to us. The accommodation is very tidy with everything you need to cook yourself and even do laundry.

Thank you, Willecia, for your very encouraging and kind comments, and also for enjoying The Nautical! Travelling and holiday accommodation are pricey in general, so we try our best for the entire family to feel warmly welcomed while enjoying the highlights of our little piece of paradise. Prayers for safety and favour for your beautiful family. Kindest wishes, Ian and Cheryl.

Lieflike woonstel in 'n pragtige omgewing.

Die woonstel is baie goed toegerus met alles wat 'n mens benodig. Dit is pragtig gemeubileer met gemaklike beddens en snoesige beddegoed. Die stort het 'n lieflike stortkop en daar is genoeg warm water vir vier mense om gemaklik te stort. Die woonstel is baie goed geleë, naby aan die see en ander besienswaardighede. Die gasheer is vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful setting.

The apartment is very well equipped with everything one needs. It is beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and cuddly bedding. The shower has a lovely shower head and there is enough hot water for four people to shower comfortably. The apartment is very well located, close to the sea and other attractions. The host is friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your review, Zelia, but could you please assist us by explaining why you only rated our cleanliness a 4? I apologise if I didn't inspect properly. We have always received a rating of 5. Could you also explain why our location was only rated a 3? How can we improve on that?
Your ratings have dropped our overall rating from 5 to 4.2. We truly work very hard for our guests and we rely on these rentals for our living.
Could you please assist us?
Many thanks,

Absoluut alles wat ons nodig gehad het.

Ongelooflik lekker gebly en die akkommodasie was uit die boonste rakke. The Nautical Beach Cottage is baie netjies en die gasheer en gasvrou (Ian & Cheryl) is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons was gedurig op hoogte gehou van wat in Keimond aangaan. Dit is regtig twee minute se stap van die strand af. 'n Gloeilamp in die leefarea het geblaas en was binne vyf minute nadat dit aangemeld is vervang. Ons kan dit met 'n geruste hart aan enige iemand aanbeveel en ons sal graag weer teruggaan.

Unbelievably nice stay and the accommodation was top notch. The Nautical Beach Cottage is very tidy and the host and hostess (Ian & Cheryl) are very friendly and helpful. We were constantly kept informed of what was going on in Keimond. It really is a two minute walk from the beach. A light bulb in the living area blew and was replaced within five minutes of being reported. We can recommend it to anyone with confidence and we would love to go back again.
