    25 May 2013

    "We enjoyed our stay very much, we actually added another day to our stay. Thanks Glenda and Calvon. A million thanks to Calvon, who came to fetch us at the Gonubie filling station. Our copy of the google map from the internet did not show all the correct turn-offs to Breaking Waves. So Calvon escorted us to their place. Beautiful view from all the windows, the braai area was superb. Great value for money. We will visit you again."

    "Excellent accomodation. Will recommend to anybody. So close to the beach."

  • "View of the ocean"

    10 December 2012

    "When you look for holliday accomodation you normally compare your stay in terms of value for money. The more you pay the more you expect in comparison in the market available. The place was clean, it catered for all our basic needs and in terms of price, ocean view and stay it was value for money. Best of all the landlord is honest. On arrival I got a cash voucher receipt for payment received indicating that they declare their taxes. This impressed me greatly. Glenda and Calvon the owners lived on top, and provided dry towels when nessasary. The Holiday flat on the groundfloor allowed us complete privacy. When the weather allowed it, we had our supper on the sleeper bench table on the porch with the sliding door of the sitting/tv room at our left side as we viewed the see."

  • "Absolutely beautiful"

    06 September 2010

    "The location is superb and the views absolutely beautiful. We had a self-catering flat with the owner staying above us. The parking was not very secure, as the car was parked in the driveway. The down side was that although it was self-catering, we would have appreciated a maid emptying our kitchen dustbin and supplying bin liners for the garbage bin. The TV remote did not work and there was no MNET or any other channels apart from SABC 1 2 3 and ETv."

  • "Spectacular view."

I will return "

Its quiet peace and desperately needed isolation from the hustle and bustle of everyday madness.With a view of the ocean from every window in the flat, we could not believe our luck when first coming upon its mind blowing beauty. The beaches at Glengariff are beautiful, with walks that go on for miles.The flat was clean, quaint with everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our stay. A home away from home.Thank you to Glenda and Kelvin for allowing us to experience your little piece of heaven."

    06 October 2008

    "Alles was baie goed, was net teleurgesteld aangesien ek spesifiek navrae gedoen het hoe ver die strand is, daar is baie rotse en die naaste strand waar my 3 jarige kon op speel was baie verder as wat gemeld is, dit was te ver om met hom te loop strand toe en moes ons noodgedwonge ry tot by die strand.***Response from establishment ***The beach is 300 walking steps, obviously too far for a 3 year old, or due to the fact the path was washed away because of bad weather and high seas."

    18 January 2006

    "Beautiful accommodation, sea facing, clean, fully contained however it has a microwave and over that does not work - need to fix. The shower does not work.There are no signs leading to Breaking Waves, the map given on the site is incorrect, so everyone will always get lost.Need to update urgently.Overall rating for accommodation - GOOD "

  • "Breaking waves"

    21 December 2005

    "Was a wonderful stay - really on the seafront and great sea view and fresh sea winds and experience. Cottage a bit small for a long stay for family of 4 but perfect for couple of 2.Suggest Glenda look at putting a tap outside somewhere for washing off feet before entering the cottage after a day on the beach. Even saw a whale for the first time and a few shoals of dolphins. Great area, quite quiet and personal. Enjoyed it tremedously and would go again.
    Op Response: Thank you for your review,we will install a tap for washing off sand from the beach. Regards, Glenda"
