Inspired by a tea plantation on a trip to Mauritius, the owners designed their all white Antebellum-styled home to evoke breezy, laid-back living.

Smack bang on Robberg beach with uninterrupted views of the iconic Robberg Peninsula and Indian Ocean, makes a Southern Cross stay unique.

As you can tell, no dogs are allowed on the furniture. Although smart, there is no time for stuffiness in this delightful beach house which instantly sets the mood for an insouciant stay.

Bursting with charm and cleverly merging whimsy with all the cons of modern day living, one cannot help but feel the hypnotic lull of the briny setting of Southern Cross. Literally, any closer and you’d get wet.

Words cannot describe how wonderful our stay was at the Southern Cross Beach House: our warm and generous host Wendy gave us a very much appreciated upgrade upon arrival, room 6 is stunning, spacious and very private. The bed is very comfortable and the room is very clean. The house is ideally located with an easy boardwalk to the long sandy beach and view of the Robberg nature reserve and Tsisikama mountains. The excellent breakfast served on the terrace with the view of the mountains coocked by Wendy and her team was delicious. If you are lucky, one or both of the two resident dogs will grace you with their presence. We had a very special stay (thank you, Wendy, for great and funny conversations), and we certainly will be back.

Our last but one stay on our South African road trip. And yes, what a great place Southern Cross Beach House is. When we arrived the host was there waiting and welcomed us and made us feel right at home from the start. We had room 3 which is just great. Breakfast is served outside on the sun deck and there is a good choice and a fresh cooked breakfast if one wants it. The guest house is only a 10 Mon drive into town where there are plenty of good restaurants to select. The host gave us a really good selection of recommendations that would suite anyone's palate.In all a great quality and quiet guest house. Well recommended

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated. From the garden, there is a beautiful view of the sea and beach. You can exit from the property straight onto a boardwalk that leads you down to the beach, so it is perfect for a walk or day on the beach. The breakfast had loads of options and you could sit outside, watching the sea, when the weather was good! The host helped us with restaurant and activity recommendations.While the location was brilliant for the beach, it is further from town and so you need to drive/taxi to nearby restaurants. So long as you know this, then it is a good place to stay!
