We have just had an unforgettable three weeks staying here from January 24th. Everything at Aberni 0n Sea was fabulous We were in the penthouse and it was more than adequate for our holiday. Anita and Bernhard are excellent hosts, always on hand, helpful when needed but quite discrete. It is a wonderful base for seeing all that this interesting...

This is a great find in Plett and only a five minute walk to the beach. Our room was spacious, had a well fitted out kitchen and spotlessly clean. Parking was off-street and we felt very secure staying here (our last visit to Plett ended with a car being broken into) The management are always around yet you never see...

We stayed at Aberni for 6 days in March in a one bedroom apartment, extending our original booking of 4 days. The apartment was tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, the bed extremely comfortable, the bathroom luxurious, the kitchen fully equipped (convection oven, microwave, stove top, small fridge + pots pans dishes etc), the furniture on the balcony useable and comfortable, with...

Three of us, including our visitor from the UK spent two nights in April at Aberni on sea. The hosts description of their property reads "Aberni on sea, situated on the magnificent Robberg beach". Whilst the accommodation was very nice it was not on the beach but in an estate and there was no view of the sea(which was a...

No words! I wanted to cry when our time was up! What a beautiful diamond you have created Fiona, thank you so much for allowing us to share your heaven, even if it was only for 3 days - one of my crowing pleasures was standing under your tree watching a giant spotted eagle owl survey the horizon!

'Aberni' is modern ,clean, well appointed and close to the beach. We wanted s/c accom. And this suited us well, although the catering equipment is limited.. The owners clearly do not expect people to want to cook! The apartment was spacious with separate lounge / dining room and large balcony overlooking the garden. There are no laundry facilities but it...

Dear John and Bev, Thank you for the nice comments on Trip Advisor. We really appreciate it. You mentioned that you would have liked more equipment in the kitchen. To improve our facilities I will appreciate if you can give me an indication of what you found missing in the apartment. We hope to be of assistance in future again....

Although Aberni is less than 100m from the beach, it does not have a view of the sea. This was only a momentary dissapointment, because the establishment is really well above par in terms of accomodation, facilities, convenience, and attention to detail. We chose the self catering option, and were led into a beautifully appointed, modern apartment, with loads of...

Bernard and Anita have created the ultimate B&B. Excellent location highlighted by a secure, modern facility. We had a self catering unit that was very efficient and well appointed. A lounging deck overlooked a tranquil wooded area. Anita served a traditional English breakfast which included a variety of cereals, fruits, yogurts as well as hot entrees. Recommend reservations in advance.

We arrived in Plett for a couple of days and found this gem of a B&B which was very close to the beach and handy for restaurants by car. We stayed in the penthouse apartment which is well worth the extra money purely for the scenic views, we also had a separate kitchen to our bedroom which was especially useful....

Our four-day stay at Aberni On Sea during October 2012, was simply incredible. The guest house is surrounded by tranquility, situated a stone's throw from the beach and very close to the picturesque surroundings of Plettenberg Bay.
