we stayed for 2 days in the 52 de Wet. The hotel is very tastefully furnished, has a breathtaking view and very friendly staff. The only disadvantage was that we booked too late and did not have a room with sea view.

Stunning view. Great service overall. Wonderful privacy. Definitely great value for money and the food was deliciously prepared and homemade. The staff are usefully invisible. Well worth another visit methinks.

On the last leg of our honeymoon, we stayed at a 52 De Wet in a room with an ocean view and really enjoyed our time. The guest house has the best view of the ocean and is in a very quiet and peaceful part...More

Hi, Sadly we do not accept children under the age of 12years. With lots of open balconies, stairways and sheer drops we feel it is too much of a risk. Kind Regards, Marnie Fennell
