The most tranquil three days I can recall. Ocean views, excellent breakfasts, splendid bedroom and very welcoming hosts. Bedrooms serviced during breakfast. The Lodge is surrounded by a very quiet gated estate. We will certainly go here again driving from Cape Town (about two hours on R27).

The Oystercatcher Lodge is the best managed place that I have ever stayed, better than five stars! Luc and Sue provided a personal touch that made our stay memorable. The rooms are immaculate, clean and comfortable. The breakfast spread is amazing and every breakfast dish is freshly made to order, not a chafing dish in sight! Thank you once again...

This lodge is the best escape from city life. It is near restaurants and other attractions, but I just wanted to stay and take the tranquility in. The breakfast was really good with enough variety. The owners have created a little piece of heaven. It is also safe as it is situated within the security estate.

This is a B&B with style where the Sue and Luc offer perfect hospitality. There is total attention to detail and the breakfast was freshly prepared and of excellent quality. There are stunning views of the ocean only 50 metres away and we never tired of watching the sea whipped to fury by the wind. Beach combing on the deserted...
