Slice of paradise in Plett
The Finch Cottage was spacious, clean and cute. There is a bbq, pool and a beautiful yard (2 adorable dachshunds too). It’s a 3 minute walk to the beach in a great neighborhood. We walked to dinner as well. Bernie and Adrienne are really helpful and suggested Monkeyland and Birds of Eden. Loved them both. We also enjoyed Robberg Nature Reserve which is just a few minutes away. The breakfast was over the top and plentiful which is good because my daughter is a big eater! Not sure what kind of coffee the have but it was delicious. This is one of the best places we stayed in South Africa!

I had a wonderful stay at this little place. The owner could not be warmer and nicer. She provided tons of information about an area, restaurants and so on. She was always willing to answer questions. The place itself location a bit outside of the core of the town in a quiet residential area (which I liked). The beach is just 5 min walk away. My room was a cottage with separate entrance and a deck, so it was very secluded. The cottage itself was very well maintained. There was a separate lounging area with fully equipped kitchen and a bedroom. Secure parking is free to all guests, good breakfast is also included (made to order eggs). Overall a very nice place and I'll be happy to come back.

The very friendly and helpful owners, Adrienne and Bernie, set the tone for our delightful two night stay which we thoroughly enjoyed. A large and comfortable room was enhanced by the sherry which was provided for guests. Breakfast was everything you would wish it to be. We enjoyed the restaurant on the edge of town which was recommended and isn’t too far away. Everything about Bayside Lodge was to a high standard. Playing with their dachshunds was fun. You will certainly not be disappointed if you stay here.

Plett Paradise
Honestly it was one of, if not the best holidays our family have ever undertaken. Adrienne and Bernie are hosts beyond compare. Full of local knowledge and advise and assisted in bookings. Fabulous hospitality. Fabulous environment. Simply faultless. We will return and that, I think, says it all.
