Let's get the negatives out of the way first. We had been spoilt on our Garden Route Trip up to this point with two sumptuous rooms in boutique hotels and a log cabin booked for us by the good people at Sundowner Holidays.

What a lovely stay. Southern Cross is located 1.6km from Robberg with Beacon Island about 3km to the North. I especially enjoyed walking down to the sea cia the wooden walkways and loosing myself in the sea air. Sada was a warm and friendly host. You can't go wrong, ask him to recommend an eatery or day trip. I can...

We stayed at the Southern Cross Beach house for 3 nights. The photos online are exactly as the guest house appears and the place has a wonderful colonial feel to it, with white wooden balustrades and decks, with the palest of pink walls and lovely pale pink bougainvillea winding its way up to the second balcony. We were greeted by...

What a cute colonial style house! The whole house and the rooms have such a beautiful and warm design, everything is decorated with such a taste. In the evening you can enjoy a fantastic view from the patio or take a walk on a beach. Breakfast was also great, served on a terrace. Staff is very nice and helpful. Such...

We arrived in the late afternoon/early evening after a good 6.5 hour drive from Cape town, but when you park the car and enter the main guest house through the little white picket fence, you are welcomed by the most beautiful colonial white wooden beach house situated literally above the beach, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore...
