Accommodation was lovely but very difficult to find. Garmin took us down a dead end road. Google maps and Apple took us to Pick"n Pay delivery parking. This needs to be addressed. Also only one sign on gravel road intersection - no signage off the N2 and no visibility. Took nearly 2 hours to find.

Relax and enjoy at Chelaya
Apart from minor invasion of ants (quickly addressed...and this is Africa after all...insects are everywhere!), we very much enjoyed the days we stayed here. Michelle kindly gave us a large room with en suite in the big house, and we loved chilling by the small pool in the mornings. Would have no reservations about staying there again. Mosquitoes were a menace at night would prefer provision option of a mossie net over the bed...other than that, excellent.

Great surroundings, great value, highly recommende
A stone’s throw from picturesque Gordon’s Bay, this is a wonderful place to use as a halfway house en route to the Garden Route, or to stay for a few days. We stayed in a two-bedroom lodge, which had its own kitchen. Fireplaces inside and outside created a lovely ambience. It felt like we were out in nature, given the lovely surroundings. Michelle was the perfect host, giving information and advice on everything from food to family activities. Chelaya vomes HIGHLY recommended.
