I have recently returned from a magical few days at Moontide.
This is my 3rd visit and was fortunate to stay in Stone Cottage where I stayed on my previous visit.
It has been completely upgraded which makes the room even more special.
The private patio,with a touch of moss is charming next to the hand crafted African fountain.
I find it ridiculous that recently there was a scathing report in Trip Advisor about Stone Cottage & Moontide in general - I strongly disagree with these criticisms!
I have always found Moontide well managed and the grounds well kept and the friendliness of the management and the staff is overwhelming!
I would love to be able to visit again next year.

Room Tip: all good rooms - the rooms high up have beautiful views

We had a great time with our kids here.
Beautiful clean room, the kids enjoyed the pool, canoeing in the Wilderness Lagoon and the outside breakfast. The staff are friendly and helpful and the surroundings are very pleasant!

We stayed in the Treetops room for the second night of our honeymoon in March. After traveling from Cape Town before check in we were given the friendliest welcome and shown up to our beautiful room. The View from our balcony was fantastic and the private outdoor shower out of the world and a wonderful touch. You really are in the wilderness!
Breakfast the next morning was amazing too and the staff could not be more welcoming and friendly. We were greeted by name on arrival and at Breakfast the next morning and also congratulated by the General Manager which just added to the whole honeymoon experience. The day after we were traveling to Prett. The GM suggested a brilliant Farmers Market on route which is a definite must if in the area.
Thank you so much Moontide - wish we stayed much longer!

Room Tip: The Treetop rooms is a must if you can handle stairs.

Beautifully appointed and comfortable accommodation. Maureen, Tim and Judge are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The delicious breakfast on the deck tops off the experience! This was our third stay at Moontide and we will be back!

Beautiful location. Great attention to detail. Super breakfast. The relaxed and congenial owner must know he is at the top of his game.
We stayed in stone cottage with chandeliers above the bath. Glory.
