Rustic Getway Incredible rustic cottage setting in a fabulous location. Cottages are beautifully rustic and spaceous. Food was really great and the staff are friendly and very helpful. Great value for money.

Great camping experience with young kids Highlights: swimming and surfing in nearby Eland's Bay where the water was surprisingly warm for the West Coast. View of the lake from the campsites. Access to the lovely pool. Friday night pizzas with bouncy castle and play area. Excellent farm stall next door and a restaurant that far exceeds expectations, especially given how off-the-beaten-track this campsite is. Lots of bird life, including the occasional flamingo. Camping: we stayed in the 'private campsites' near the farmstall. warm showers are amazing. Toilet for each campsite. Lots of space per campsite.Be prepared: bring a gazebo for the sun. It can be windy at times. Pack bug repellent and wear thick shoes as there's a lot of spiky devil's thorns around.

Good spot to stop for lunch. We stopped at Vensterklip restaurant for lunch on the way to Lambert's Bay. The food was great, the atmosphere outside relaxed and the service great. Highly recommended.

A splendid stay! We had a splendid time at Vensterklip Guest Farm and will be back anytime. Jane and team are caring and went the extra mile, especially to accommodate my mother who is almost 92. Our dinner was a special feast prepared and served at our lodge, with a wholesome omelette for breakfast at the outside lapa by Linda and his team. A great stay and beautiful setting with interesting décor and nooks.
