  • "Perfect Location"

    27 December 2017

    "Having previously spent a weekend at Laughter Cottage earlier in the year, we looked forward to our Christmas break with great anticipation. However while the location is superb & the accommodation comfortable (1 less bed in the loft would make movement easier) , we felt that the facilities were woefully inadequate. The cottage advertises that it sleeps 8, which it does, but it has a fridge that is so small it barely stocks food for 4! There is no freezer which made keeping food, ice etc for 6 people a challenge. Overall the cottage is a little tired but it's location is what makes this cottage worth staying in."

    "Overall we had a great stay and would go back. The living area was large and spacious. It in very close proximity to the beach. The local "wildlife" was a great surprise for my kids. With the amount of people that can stay at this establishment it really needs a bigger fridge and freezer."

  • "Fantastic location!!"

    08 May 2017

    "Laughter Cottage is a compact little space but it works as I has plenty of outdoor space. The only thing lacking was the "key" to extend the awning, which is necessary because the afternoon sun beats onto the patio. Otherwise it was great."

  • "Good value for money"

    08 September 2015

    "We recently stayed one night at Laughter Cottage while exploring the West coast. The Shelly Point area is beautiful and worth a visit. The Cottage was well furnished with everything we needed. Being secure in the Golf estate was also a bonus. The en suite bathroom is found behind the cupboard doors in the main bedroom. Overall an enjoyable stay which was also good value for money."

  • "Good"

    30 January 2014

    "Although we enjoyed the complex on which the house was situated there were a few negative points to be considered. The complex was secure, and had easy access to the beaches, great walking potential and lovely views, tv facility was good, and there was a well equipped kitchen - the property however could have been better presented. On arrival we had to spray the inside as the house had a more flies than were welcome. Many of the light bulbs had blown and not been replaced and there were no outside lights on the stoep. The garage was littered with old 5litre plastic bottles, old chairs and other such unused pieces of household equipment. We felt that the 'housekeeping' of the property left a lot to be desired.Not even a spare toilet roll was provided for!"
