We had a one night stay here in a ground floor room facing the canal. This had an excellent view and a small outdoor seating area. The room was quiet and comfortable, though the furniture and decor was a bit tired. The owners were extremely helpful, hospitable and knowledgeable. They sat with us at breakfast (which was really well prepared... More

St Francis Bay is one of those hidden treasures. Beach. River. Canals. Waterways is one of the only B&Bs close to all three of those. The property is as authentic as it gets: Thatch roof, whitewashed walls, beautiful garden and kayaks that guests can use to explore the canals, or to paddle to the beach. Julia and Hilton welcomed us... More

The location is very special. Canals on one side (in front of your room), the lagoon and ocean on the other side. The furniture and decor are old fashioned, but nothing wrong with it. The bed is of good quality. The outdated small TV is of poor quality. The owners are friendly and accommodating.

I spent two nights at this wonderful location, on the waterway at St Francis Bay, with my wife, her sister and brother in law who had come out from the U K to spend time with us. We arrived in the afternoon, after a harrowing trip through Baviaanskloof and were made so welcome by the owners, Julia and Hilton. The... More

We had a lovely stay at Waterways. Location is so beautiful. The room is cozy. The owners are very friendly and you can have a nice chat with them during breakfast. St Francisbay is beautiful, but can be very quiet outside the holidayseason.

It was a wonderful and unexpected experience of living in a white washed, thatched house, Waterways, right next to the canal. The room is big with both canal and river view. The owner let us use their canoe to visit the canal system, to the water mouth and up the creek. It is so peaceful and beautiful, the houses along... More
