Our time at zeeder zee was great, the service is great, Gavin is friendly, approachable, attentive and always available. Can't fault the place only recommendation would be to have air conditioning installed. The ceiling fan has zero effect in the humid natal summer.

A cosy bachelor apartment situated in a quiet area with a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. We had a lovely relaxing stay and the host was friendly and helpful. Safe and secure and close to all amenities in the area.

A very nice stay at the Zuider Zee Guesthouse. We were there for just one night, but felt very welcome. Very spacious rooms, we even had a small kitchenette, and a lovely terrace with a pool. Ocean view and only a 10 minute walk tot he beach. Owner is very helpful and prepares a very nice breakfast.
