This time around it felt...

Port Owen is just far enough from Cape Town to make it a perfect place for a week end away. The amenities in the rooms left us wanting for nothing. We were lucky to get a ground floor room which faced right onto the Marina which was lovely. If you enjoy water sports then this is the place for you.

I had a great view of the marina. There were distracting noises. It was quiet! I never felt in danger (which is a real bargain in SA today) and...

Port Owen Marina is such a great place to stay - our house was huge and had so much room for people. 5 could easily sleep here and the outside bbq area is so great - best sunset in a LONG time - although we were there in winter - the rooms are perfect! Cleaners everyday and such efficient service!...

Visited Port Owen Marina in 2015, and it was just a breath of fresh air; people were friendly, atmosphere was laid-back, food was delectable, and the venue was very affordable and strategically located.

We rented a 3 bed 2 bath unit and enjoyed our stay tremendously. Charlene and her team works very hard to ensure that guests are kept happy. We enjoyed exploring the marina, berg river and birdlife by canoe, which is available to guests. The kids had loads of fun cycling around safely, playing put-put, and indoor games on coolish days....
