"Lyn is just fantastic. She was responsive in communications, flexible and gracious. She really took care of me – as a woman travelling alone it was important to have someone keep an eye out for you and Lyn definitely did that. She took me to the supermarket on my first day to get supplies and drove me around the area. The view from her place is unparalleled. I saw whales every day. Its peaceful and homely. In fact – I am a little homesick for Bluff!" - Ann
"How can I start this??? Breath-taking, wonderful and awesome might summarize it. It all started by excellent communication, pin point place, didn’t find any issues getting to it. Our host was so welcoming though we ran really late as we were driving from Joburg. The place was spotless with a beautiful view of the ocean even better than the pics, absolutely amazing. We had a bbq in the place, and next day Rose who took care of the cleaning every day, made the place spotless again. Laundry was done, every day the place looked clean and tidy after Rose’s visit. We really had a super time, and definitely will come back again." - Ayman
