Swept Away Guest House

Swept Away Guest House is true to its name, nestled against a hill with stunning views of the bay below, and on a clear day you can even see Table Mountain. Just 100 meters from the beach with breathtaking sea views from every room, suitable for families & pets and the most delicious breakfasts - luxury and relaxation are guaranteed! Our lovely new Mariners Lounge and Winter garden invites to relax and to have stunning sea views.

The house is situated approximately 600 m from the beach and has three double rooms, some with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms have a TV and sea views. A fully-equipped kitchen adjoins the dining room, and the large lounge area has satellite TV with German and local channels. There is also a self-catering unit that can sleep up to two guests.

The garden in front of the house is ideal for sunbathing during the day and with our outdoor braai under the beautiful starlit sky in the evenings. Our Indoor Braai also invites for a great get together with family and friends. Comfortable garden furniture also makes an afternoon tea break a special treat.

We welcome families with children and/or pets, as our enclosed garden provides a secure play area.

    "When we arrived 10 minutes before check in time our room was not ready, has to wait about 30 minutes. Was not happy with room given to us as it was down a flight of stairs and we did inform owner that we were taking our dog with. We did not stay but left same day. Awaiting refund of R1500 from Swept Away"

    18 May 2017

    "The hostess, Inge, was very friendly and accommodating, and allowed us full use of the dining room and kitchen, as other people had booked the self-catering suites. When the electricity went out, due to a storm, she was well equipped with candles and torches. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It was a most enjoyable stay."

    16 February 2017

    "A very tastefully decorated room in marine style with toilet, shower and cooking facilities. Very good quality of mattress on double bed. View overlooking southern side of Yzerfontein bay to Table Mountain. Use of balcony, enclosed sunroom and kitchen in house. Breakfasts are available if advance notice is given the evening before. Would certainly recommend this property."

  • "Unbeatable value, magical setting"

    21 March 2016

    "This is an amazing spot: stunning, uninterrupted ocean views, easy beach access, privacy and all the mod-cons you need, at a truly affordable price. The space is clean, spacious and perfectly set-up, and the hostess is friendly, helpful and never intrusive. For the price, I don't think you'll find anything better in Yzerfontein. I could spend a lifetime sitting on this deck!"

  • "Simply fantastic!"

    24 November 2014

    "Staying at Swept Away was an absolute delight. Inge, our host, is incredibly accommodating (especially to our dog) and made us feel as though the house was ours. We had gorgeous views of the ocean (and saw some magnificent sunsets) from our double room. But the best part of our stay was the breakfast each morning... a veritable feast, the spread included fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals, scones, muffins, cold meats, cheeses and that was just the 'cold' portion. We also got delicious bacon and eggs every morning, along with coffee or tea (of which there are many flavours to choose from). I highly recommend Swept Away for an Yzerfontein visit!"

  • "Wonderful stay!"

    14 October 2014

    "I stayed at Swept Away for 3 nights over the school holidays with my two boys. The guest house is stunning, the rooms are lovely and breakfast is outstanding.I had the honeymoon suite which is much nicer and larger than the pics depict, a pleasant surprise!Room was serviced but towels weren't changed once during my stay which would be my only minor complaint.Other than that, I would highly recommend this guest house and would return."

    Yael Marom, South Africa
  • "Lovely view Amazing hospitality"

    21 September 2014

    "The views from the house are amazing, I recommended the honeymoon suite (especially if a family with a baby cot as it has immense space). The house is 500m walk from a beautiful long white sandy beach.The place is a little tired so don't expect 5 star standard but do expect 7 star hospitality. Inge the accommodation manager made the stay incredible through her kindness, attentiveness and really welcomed my family, from the baby to the granny all were well cared for.The breakfast she prepares is amazing too.We will defiantly be back."

  • "Pleasant stay"

    16 January 2014

    "Amazing view but for the price can do with a little upgrade of facilities. Better television reception and a mirror near a electric outlet will go a long way. Also a little unpractical for a self-catering unit as it has no direct access to go outside which makes is difficult with kids."

    Marelise Scholtz, South Africa
