              The pictures on the website can be a bit deceiving as the house is very old. At one stage the foor handle came off and then the toilet roll holder came off as well. However, the staff are so friendly and ensure that every comfort is provided. We had lots of extra towels, and amazing aircon, absolutely comfortable bed, dstv, wifi, hot chocolate, cappuccinos, rusks etc. The room was so so clean and tidy. Special care was taken to ensure cleanliness. Breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend the b&b 👌

              Thank you for a wonderful, comfortable stay. We have an elderly relative in Tuinsig and therefore Coweys Corner was so well located, the room was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful wooden floors and slipper bath. The breakfast was delicious and the staff so friendly. All in all - absolute value for money. Thank you.

              Awesome December get away”

              I did a last minute December get away for my mom and her partner. When she got back she was elated at the facilities, it was clean and neat and the owners took such great care of them. They also found (having travelled without a car) that it was easy to get around and the beaches were literally 2 minutes away. They loved every day there and said they will definitely go back again.

              Excellent stay, but online booking confusion ”

              Accommodation turned out to be excellent. The only problem was the owner /manager was not aware of my online booking through Agoda by the time I arrived. There was no one there to receive us and we had a difficult time getting hold of the owner. When he did arrive he was deeply apologetic and the stay turned out to be very good.
