Garden Route Accommodation

  Cavin Kayser, to say the least, is the Epitome of enthusiasm, hospitality and verbal energy. He never stopped talking! BUT what an excellent job he has done and is doing!

Hiking at Boggamsbaai

The first thing I noticed on entering Boggomsbaai was the amount of pristine fynbos stretching right into the little settlement itself. Low-impact housing is the order of the day, except for the odd nightmare here and there. But my first impression was one of peace and tranquility: a place
