“The residential area is very quiet. The room is in the back of the house and is also accessible from the garden. The bathroom is right next door. François and Clair are very open and warm hosts. They have two dogs and a cat who are really well behaved and sweet as sugar. We felt very comfortable and welcome and can therefore only recommend this accommodation.”

“Christiena and her husband are incredibly nice and welcoming hosts. As soon as we arrived, they showed us around the spacious apartment and shared lots of tips for things to do with us. Definitely do what they recommend and you'll have a great time! The appartment is very big and just a one minute walk from the sea. We got up early to see the sun rise and it was just beautiful.”

“Imagine an idyllic, cosy, private hideaway with a panoramic view over Bredasdorp, endless skillfully farmed acreages, and rolling hills in the distance... and at the same time, mere metres away from a 'must-do' trail into the adjacent nature reserve. Imagine deligntful, uplifting birdsongs, glorious morning sunshine, and the soothing sound of the breeze in the venerable trees... Now, imagine the most convivial, kindly, attentive yet discreet welcome you possibly can, in this instance from Superhost Cecilia, whose warm-hearted and vivacious personality instantly touched us and reached deep into us... You may just BEGIN to gain a sense of the exceptional combination of 'positives' that made our all-too-brief stay at Cecilia's place so special. Everything in the quaintly furnished studio was cleverly designed to maximise space without sacrificing cosiness, including plenty of storage space for clothes, additional pillows, and a thoughtful welcome pack including a delightful little vase of cut flowers from the well-kept garden. The town centre and shops were an easy 15 minutes' walk away (mostly downhill - be prepared for a little uphill exercise on your way back ==> don't buy the whole shop if on foot :-)), and the location is ideal to explore several areas of extraordinary natural beauty. Cape Agulhas, the Southernmost tip of the African continent, where Indian and Atlantic Oceans 'meet', is one NOT to miss, a short drive away. From there, you can walk along a well-maintained coastal trail to a (Portuguese) shipwreck to the invigorating sight, sound, and scent of the sea. We recommend suitable footwear as the path includes sections of loose pebbles and/or stones, but nothing 'challenging'. For the more energetic, you can also set off from the shipwreck on an unmissable 5.5 km circular hike that will take you further along the coast before climbing the impressive rocky/sandy ridge slightly inland (in stages, along well-maintained but quite deep steps - bring a hiking stick if you are a lirttle 'vertically challenged' or not super-strong). Once at the tope, the panoramic views are even more stunning. The route then gradually weaves through bushland along a range of surfaces from rocky outcrops to pebbles/loose stones, sand, and earth. The final descent, just beyond the point of the shipwreck, is also quite manageable but involves some deep steps/natural 'dips' in the rock for which a hiking stick is once again in our view recommended for the fit but less agile. Another beautiful destination for a day out is the De Hoop Nature reserve, offering breath-taking views (the massive sand dunes you see in the distance on entering look like snowy peaks!), walking trails, limited mountain biking, unspoilt coastal ridges and beaches, HOWEVER: be prepared for a 50 km quite bumpy ride each way along an unsurfaced track with far more potholes than you can find holes in my native Swiss Emmental cheese! Loose stones can also be a hazard from oncoming vehicles, so the rule of thumb is to drive watchfully and considerately. We managed the drive with a fairly basic 1,300 cc hatchback, and saw a number of other 'ordinary' cars, but clearly the road would be more suited to higher-axle 4 x 4 vehicles if you have the option. Our conclusion? If you are thinking of exploring some of the Overberg's most beautiful natural areas, look no further than Cecilia's place, which we cannot recommend enough.”
