"Die eenheid bied die basiese benodigdhede. Teen die tarief wat gehef word voel ons dat die plekkie op 'n daaglikse basis skoongemaak kan word ( nie teen ekstra koste nie ). Om dieselfde rede glo ek kan toiletpapier meer gereeld as een rolletjie in ses da‘ voorsien word!! Die dakwaaier is nie in instaat om vinniger as die stadige spoed te waai nie, wat in die dag en 'n half van bergwind toestande van geen nut was nie. Die mikrogolfoondjie is nie werkend nie. Maar oor die algemeen het ek en Lin 'n aangename tydjie gehad en saamgestem dat ons weer sal gaan."

Wondrous place if you want something peaceful and quiet. Vredendal and Lamberts Bay are also just a stone throw away. Wonderful people and environment. Thank you Thornbay."

"The stay was good, but that 'dining table' is too unstable. We lost a couple of drinks, just cutting food!

Also NO oven! All the food I bought for self catering needed to be baked, oven heated. I had to go and buy fish next door."

"Comfortable and well positioned, this accommodation is the perfect get away for solitude, rest, quietness and 'chillaxing'.
With a kitchen stocked with all the utensils you need to cook a gourmet meal, one need never leave the accommodation.
Lying in bed between quality linen and listening to the waves breaking against the rocks is heaven.
A self service establishment so remember to take your own toiletries as the only guest amenity is hand soap.
I will be returning and recommend this accommodation without reservation. Thanks Peter and Michelle "

"Our unit at Thornbay Accommodation was clean, tastefully decorated an stocked with all we needed. Situated across the street from a small beach in a rocky cove, the view of the rugged coast, lighthouse, Fryers Cove Winery and breathraking sunsets, was superb. A wide selection of seafood can be bought in the on-site fishery - a great plus- point.

Another plus is that it is pet-friendly.

We recommend a stay in Doringbaai with enthusiasm."

"Michele and Peter were the perfect hosts and accommodated us in a perfect little apartment that was fully walled and gated. The garden was grassed and the unit well equipped. There is not too much to do in the area apart from beach and cliff walks but that was perfect for what we intended - just a quiet break with the pooches. The town is very safe and the views and sunsets amazing. Thanks Michele and Peter the stay was well worth if.

Although right on the road, this is not a problem as there is no traffic. Fabulous view of the sunset!!! ÊExceptional value for money.
