We wish we could have stayed longer but unfortunately our time was limited. The owner was extremely friendly and the accommodation is very well appointed. We had the larger of the 3 available rooms and it was more than adequately furnished and very comfortable. There were even cookies to go with the supplied coffee and fresh milk. A lovely welcoming decanter of sherry and sweet goodies. We will most definitely be returning in the near future for a much longer stay. Thanks again for a short but comfortable stay.

We've had a perfect stay in The Lookout. Breakfast every morning was a party. Served by Louise herself. We had al three apartments in use. So it feel like it was our own home. The braai and the Pub was used every evening. With the perfect view it became a perfect evening. If you are looking for a very cosy place this is it. Best regards and all the best.
