Truly amazing staff. No matter the time no matter what you need there is always a smile

Across a almost private beach. Pretty amazing staff. I cannot fault them at anything.

After a month of traveling, we ended our Africa adventure with the warm, wonderful, generous and gracious hosts at Sonnekus Guest House. Our stay was superb. The accommodations absolutely clean and comfortable. The breakfast delicious and bountiful. Most importantly, Pat and her family were a delight...going beyond the norm with their hospitality. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Ranks with the world's best and especially because of the warmth and attention of the owners and their staff, all of whom went the extra mile to make our stay like home.
