Dit het gevoel of ek huis toe kom.

Ek het heerlik gebly. My diere was welkom, soseer dat my kat besluit het om agter te bly! Die swembad is 'n groot pluspunt. Die voorstelling is nie naby die geriewe wat gebied word nie - vir een keer nie 'n wanvoorstelling nie.

It felt like I was coming home.

I had a wonderful stay. My animals were welcome, so much so that my cat decided to stay behind! The pool is a big plus. The representation is nowhere near the amenities offered - for once not a misrepresentation.

Baie verafgeleë maar rustig en veilig. Mooi uitsig, maar ver van die strand af.

Baie lekker gebly. Dit is wel 'n entjie van die see af en met die oorstromings en storms was die strand baie morsig vol stompe, gemors, riete ens., maar dit is baie mooi en rustig daar. Indien jy weg wil kom van alles af, is dit die plek .

Very remote but peaceful and safe. Nice view, but far from the beach.

Very nice stay. It is a bit far from the sea and with the floods and storms the beach was very messy full of logs, rubbish, reeds etc., but it is very beautiful and peaceful there. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place.

A total disgrace. Management is rude, very unprofessional, and untidy with no pride taken.

False advertising. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Total waste of money. You can’t swim on the beach anywhere. The flat is infested with bugs. At night, when you are lying in bed, massive cockroaches run around the flat and on you. The roof is leaking, with water running down the walls. The shower head is broken, and water sprays onto the ceiling when you open the tap. There are holes in the bedding, the braai is broken, and the fan is broken.

Verwys na bigenoemde.

Bly was lekker, behalwe vir die stort wat lek en die krag wat foutief was. Hulle kan 'n afdak oor die stoep maak om die braai meer gemaklik te maak. Die strand kort baie aandag en skoonmaak.

Refer to the above.

Stay was nice except for the shower leaking and the power being faulty. They can make a canopy over the porch to make the braai more comfortable. The beach needs a lot of attention and cleaning.

Heerlik.

Die verblyf was netjies en die feit dat ons twee Pekingese hondjies kon saamgaan, maak dat ek Driftwood Chalets net nog meer aanbeveel, veral vir persone wie nie sonder hul vierbeen-kinders vakansie hou nie.

Delicious.

The accommodation was neat and the fact that our two Pekingese dogs could go together makes me recommend Driftwood Chalets even more, especially for people who don't go on holiday without their four-legged children.

Uiters swak! Sal nooit weer daarheen gaan nie.

Die hoofhek is op 'n heuwel wat parkering voor die hek belemmer wanneer die hek met die hand oopgemaak moet word. Motor werk nie. Met ons aankoms was daar niemand om die blyplek uit te wys nie. Ek het per ongeluk die sleutel van die eenheid ontdek na 'n paar uur waar dit aan die skuifdeur se boonste safety lock gehang het agter die vuil gordyne. Die eenheid self was redelik skoon onder omstandighede. Die eenheid is verwaarloos en kort werk. Die binnedeure is losgetrek en een het 'n gat in. Die toiletdeur was geverf, al is dit stukkend, en die olieverf was nog nat. Die meubels is vuil en van swak gehalte. Daar is geen toiletpapier en/of vullisdrom of sakke nie. Die buitevullisdrom is oorvol en het gevrot. Geen besem, mop of vadoek nie. Die miere het ons cooler oortrek binne 'n uur na ons arriveer het. Die plafon en mure het geen afwerking nie en groot gate het wys. Die AC is op 'n prepaid meter, so as jy AC wil aansit moet jy self krag aankoop. Parkeerplek was 'n groot probleem vir almal wat daar was. Die eienares was ongepoets en het soos 'n wafferse sersant orders rondgegooi van wie waar moet "park" sodat haar "beams" nie geblok word nie, want sê sy, "Daar's 'n ou wat daar inbreek". Sy het geëis dat ons die plekmatte verwyder sodat ons honde nie op dit mors nie. Dit was 'n pet-friendly eenheid wat ons geboek het. Nodeloos om dit te sê, ons het die volgende oggend voor 9 am vertrek.

Translate to English.

Extremely weak! Will never go there again.

The main gate is on a hill which hinders parking in front of the gate when the gate has to be opened manually. Car doesn't work. When we arrived there was no one to show us the place to stay. I accidentally discovered the key to the unit after a few hours hanging from the sliding door's top safety lock behind the dirty curtains. The unit itself was quite clean under the circumstances. The unit is neglected and needs work. The interior doors have been pulled loose and one has a hole in it. The toilet door was painted, albeit broken, and the oil paint was still wet. The furniture is dirty and of poor quality. There is no toilet paper and/or garbage can or bags. The outdoor bin is overflowing and has rotted. No broom, mop or dishcloth. The ants covered our cooler within an hour of our arrival. The ceiling and walls have no finish and large holes show. The AC is on a prepaid meter, so if you want to turn on AC you have to purchase power yourself. Parking was a big problem for everyone there. The owner was unpolished and like a waffer sergeant was throwing around orders about who should "park" where so that her "beams" wouldn't be blocked, because she said, "There's a guy breaking in there". She demanded that we remove the placemats so our dogs wouldn't spill on them. It was a pet-friendly unit that we booked. Needless to say, we left before 9am the next morning.

Please see what can be done about the maintenance like flushing toilets, tap handles falling off in the shower and bath, somewhere to put your soap in the shower so its not on the floor, replace the old couches, leaking roof and leaking toilets to mention a few.

It is a very nice area, quiet and not disturbed.

We were quite a large group of people. We enjoyed it very much. The price was pretty good too. But the house is falling apart a little bit. Wall plugs are loose and hanging out of the wall. Some wall plugs don't even work. Bricks above sliding door are loose and hanging there, looking like they could fall on your head at any moment. We had the biggest house of all and not even a washing machine. There are pipes and plugs ready for the washing machine but no washing machine. Some panes cannot be opened and some cannot be fastened, their brackets are broken. We were very disappointed about the purchasing power. 90% of vacation spots we've been to include your power in the price. I find it quite unreasonable and the house's power was inhumanly heavy. We were 10 people yes, but we are very energy conscious and thrifty, we know how expensive power is, and with all our power saving techniques we applied we still had to pay R550 for power for 11 days. Now for people like us, who are on a tight budget, R550 just for power on holiday is ridiculous.

Lekker gerus, mooi uitsig.

Dit was regtig lekker. Stoep, mooi uitsig. Alles wat mens nodig het, gerieflik. Al wat dalk nodig is, is 'n lugreëling per huisie en 'n hek wat met remote werk. Die diere op die perseel is oulik en dit maak alles net meer rustig. Mens voel tuis. Dankie Tessa en Danny!

Relax, nice view.

It was really nice. Porch, nice view. Everything you need, convenient. All that may be needed is an air conditioner per cottage and a remote-operated gate. The animals on the premises are cute and it just makes everything more peaceful. One feels at home. Thanks Tessa and Danny!

Heerlike ontspanne vakansie.

Wat 'n heerlike vakansie. Pragtige skoon woonstel met asemrowende uitsig. Die veilige omgewing het my laat vergeet van die stres en onveilige omgewing waar ek bly en dit het die vakansie en rus tyd vir ons heerlike gemaak. Ons is lekker uitgerus en kan nie wag om weer te gaan kuier by Driftwood Chalets nie. Baie Dankie vir 'n puik vakansie.

Great relaxing holiday.

What a lovely holiday. Beautiful clean apartment with a breathtaking view. The safe environment made me forget about the stress and unsafe environment where I live and it made the holidays and rest time delicious for us. We are well rested and can't wait to visit Driftwood Chalets again. Many thanks for a great holiday.

Accomodation was clean and the staff very helpful, there was no kettle, but we only stayed a night so it wasn't an issue.

Spectacular view, basic accommodation, great value for money. Very helpful staff, we only stayed a night.

Jy kry waarvoor jy betaal het.

Sakpasverblyf. Kan verbeter met reëlings, seepbakkie in badkamer. Eetgerei kort opknap. Plek is skoon. Ons het 11h00 opgedaag en was toegelaat sonder probleem.

Kry nie wat jy betaal het voor nie, en eienaar selektief vriendelik, nors en wys min ywer om te help.

Verblyf vervang met ander blyplek. Ongeorganiseerd, nadat ons bevestig het vooraf oor reëlings en verblyf. Nietemin, plaasvervangerverblyf was netjies en skoon, houtbanke so effe ongemaklik, linne skoon, kussings gelyk of vlekke opgehad het. Kombuis het alle benodighede vir self-catering. Mooi uitsig. Geen plek om handdoeke op te hang nie. Benodig meer parkering. Hek na strand baie geroes, moeilik om oop te maak. Eienaar vriendelik, maar nie altyd nie.

Don't get what you paid for, and owner selectively friendly, grumpy and shows little effort to help.

Accommodation replaced with other accommodation. Unorganized, after we confirmed in advance about arrangements and accommodation. Nevertheless, replacement accommodation was neat and clean, wooden sofas a bit uncomfortable, linen clean, pillows looked like they had stains. Kitchen has all necessities for self-catering. Nice view. No place to hang towels. Need more parking. Gate to beach very rusted, difficult to open. Owner friendly, but not always.

Okay, but won't go again.

Place is neat, but environment is not. One feels unsafe on the beach.

Nie aangenaam nie.

Die plek het baie opknappingswerk nodig. Linne glad nie goed nie. Sitkamerbanke aaklig - sit op hout. Krane in badkamer glad nie stewig nie. Die onthaalarea is vol reptielhokke wat glad nie goed op die oog af is nie. Nie genoeg bakke in kombuis nie. Was nie eers toiletpapier met aankoms in badkamer nie.

Not pleasant.

The place needs a lot of renovations. Linen not good at all. Living room couches awful - sitting on wood. Faucets in bathroom not sturdy at all. The reception area is full of reptile cages which do not look good at all. Not enough bowls in kitchen. Didn't even wash toilet paper on arrival in bathroom.
