    Best "boat house room" EVER!!!!

    Our overnight stay was THE BEST in so many ways. The warm, helpful greeting was very heart warming and the location, comfort and tastefully decorated room was very very special. The attention to detail on the delicious and plentiful breakfast was admirable. I can recommend this accommodation to everyone.

    South African road trip.

    Moontide Guesthouse is in a beautiful setting overlooking the lagoon with individually designed rooms. Our room was beautifully appointed with a comfortable bed and everything we needed. The staff were friendly and welcoming and were able to offer suggestions for dinner. The breakfast was delicious and there were a range of options. We wish we could have stayed longer.

    Um hotel pra ficar!

    Esse hotel é um sonho!! Que delícia sentar nas mesas e espreguiçadeiras do jardim de frente para o rio ou pegar um dos caiaques disponíveis e curtir o sol. O quarto também, além de confortável, era de extremo bom gosto. Decoração cuidadosa e caprichada A equipe é fantástica: a dona, Maureen, o Judge, que esteve conosco na maior parte do tempo .. todos muito muito gentis e profissionais, genuinamente interessados no bem-estar dos hóspedes. Adoramos tudo e ficamos loucos de vontade de voltar!
