A fantastic B&B excellently run by Sue and Luc with a guaranteed warm welcome. Set in a private resort at the very tip of of the point and in a very quiet part only the sound of waves break the silence. The views are pretty amazing too.

We stayed here for one night on our way back down to Cape Town. We had one of the ground floor rooms, with direct access to the beach. Beautiful room, beautiful guest house and the most amazing breakfast. And what made it extra special is that we got engaged right outside on the dunes! Will definitely go again! By far...

The lodge is set on the point and has amazing views over the sea, and there is a lovely pool area which is sheltered from the wind. The rooms are very comfortable and we had sea views. The breakfasts are also very good, especially the omelettes and scrambled eggs with bacon and feta. The honesty bar is also very handy...

This was our third visit to this amazing Lodge. We stayed in the St Martin apartment. The views are breath taking. We would highly recommend visiting this lodge. You can realy just relax. There is also a lot of restaurants close by. The beach is spectacular. Lots of places to go for a jog or to walk around.
