"Ziplining in the tree tops!"

Gert Roux | 9 April 2018

"Where do I begin singing the praises of this absolute gem of a getaway?! I actually do not want to out of fear that next time I want to return it'll be all booked up! Hiking trails on your doorstep, sublime beach, dozens of places to go, things to do. By far the best value for money in Nature's Vall..."

"Where do I begin singing the praises of this absolute gem of a getaway?! I actually do not want to out of fear that next time I want to return it'll be all booked up! Hiking trails on your doorstep, sublime beach, dozens of places to go, things to do. By far the best value for money in Nature's Valley. And I simply love the hosts, Dawn and Ken. "

"The Wood"

"nice well fitted cottage for an overnight stay. arrived late so did not enjoy the beach much. the unit was clean and the braai area lovely."


"Close to the beach"

"We stayed for one night in Dawns self-catering holiday apartment. We parked the car in the fenced yard. It was only a few hundred meters to the beach. The apartment was big, probably a former shed behind the garage across the yard. The bathroom was clean and big, the shower in the extra room was also practical. But you could see that every bit of furniture was second hand, the kitchen utensils very much used. The upholstery was still in plastic wrapping. The electrical wiring seemed improvised, the lighting was somewhat gloomy and finding the right switch was a treasure hunt. The heating was good. For the price it was probably okay, but one should not expect too much comfort."


"FANTASTIC HOSPITALITY!"

(South Africa) David Barnard | 22 September 2016

"Comfortable Room with a lovely view on the upper deck. The Wood B&B is conveniently located with direct access to the beach.

Breakfast was small but just enough to kick-start a day of activity in the sun and SPECTACULAR surrounding nature!

Dawn's husband should be nominated for an award for the BEST apricot jam and marmalade that we have ever had!"

"Fantastic stay in self catered cottage"

(South Africa) Claudia Lo | 6 December 2015

"The self catered cottage is clean, spacious and is stocked with full cooking facilities. Great value for money. It is best to pick up groceries before going into Natures Valley as there are limited dining options."


"Uitstekende wegbreek"

(South Africa) Albert Venter | 9 November 2015

"Ons is ontvang met 'n glimlag en het 'n heerlike vakansie gehad. ÊOntbyt was heerlik en bedien op die stoep wanneer ons dit wou h�.

Hulle sien ons verseker weer

"The Wood self-catering cottage"

"Wonderful place only 5 minutes from the beach"

(Switzerland) Guenter | 30 January 2018

Nature's Valley is very secluded and you must take this into account if your main goal is to visit the many tourist attractions in the area. We loved it here. Early morning beach walks with only one or two other people about."

One can't find a more peaceful place to charge our run down City batteries.

Lovely & Clean accommodation with everything you need, and right next to the shop if you forgot the braai spice ."


"Pleased"

(South Africa) Mister RK | 17 March 2015

"Nature's Valley"

(South Africa) Schram | 16 October 2014

"The Wood Guest House is a charming b and b situated in Nature's Valley, on South Africa's famous Garden route.
It's a real 'get away from it all' location, reached by a winding road to the spectacular coast.
The accommodation is quaint, and very comfortable, situated next to a store and small eatery (the only one in the town).
We ate a wonderful breakfast on the small veranda, within steps and earshot from a wonderful and epic beach.
The friendly and informative owners have lived there for many years. We wished we had booked a night or two more.

"This was a return visit to the same B&B after 5 years and once again we had an awesome experience with wonderfully warm and welcoming hosts who served good breakfasts and who keep a very nice clean, comfortable and safe environment. Not to mention the beach just steps away and the interesting restaurant equally close by. This is a great find and one we will likely return to next time we visit South Africa and tour along the amazing Garden Route."


"Peaceful"

(South Africa) Mrs Pieters | 5 April 2013

"We only stayed one night at the Wood Guest House. We stayed in the cottage - surely like a home away from home. I had my best night's sleep there. The kids just loved the 2 dogs. Thank you!"

The wood panelling and the outdoor deck continued the woody theme...unpretentious but very suited to the down-market environment that is Nature's Valley. Very friendly hosts...and they quite happily served us the continental and cooked breakfast, which really set us up for our day of travelling. Also very handy being next door to a pub where we could have a fresh and reasonably priced seafood meal in the evening.

Highly recommended!

"Nice quiete place"

(Germany) Mr Kölling | 25 January 2010

"A great place"

(Netherlands) Mr Geschiere | 14 January 2010

"Very simple but comfortable accommodation at an extremely reasonable price. Bedrooms very nicely furnished with great beds. Lighting in lounge area was poor, which made reading difficult at night. Even though the cottage was close to the main house, privacy was guaranteed and there was a lovely view of the garden. The main attraction was the one minute walk to the beach, which was a huge plus. Warm and friendly hosts were also appreciated."
