Peaceful and tranquil. A very chilled place.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Anchorage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was clean and spacious and the owners more than accommodating. We will definately be back to Stilbaai and The Anchorage and will happily recommend the place to our friends.

Completely satisfied and uplifting!

Reviewer: Mr Spandiel (South Africa) We would like to thank Craig and his wife of Anchorage (Stilbaai) for their great hospitality, kindness and uplifting professionalism as hosts of Anchorage (Stilbaai). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would without a doubt recommend this unique establishment to any person who wants a sublime weekend away from city life or just a breakaway from their normal life routine. The silent, tranquil setting on the banks of the river with its beautiful views just added to the magic of our stay.
Anchorage ROCKS! Three thumbs up!



Animals & Water!

Reviewer: Mr Finn (United Kingdom) If you have a love affair with horses, dogs, fishing or canoeing this is the establishment for you. We thought this was an ideal location with excellent facilities for a quiet few days to relax and Stillbaai has plenty to offer, whether beach walking or birdwatching.

Wonderful little gem in Stilbaai

The Anchorage was a really wonderful little gem in Stilbaai. Wonderful setting, fantastic hosts and superb rooms. Everything was spotlessly clean and nothing was too much trouble for Annette and Craig. Will definitely be back next January.

A quick compliment - lovely, pretty, friendly, and well run

A quick compliment to the owners of the Anchorage @ Stilbaai; we stayed there in December and it was lovely, pretty, friendly, and well run.

Thanks and regards

Great Stay

Dear Annette & Craig


I, and on behalf of my kids, want to thank you for the great time we had at Stillbay River Lodge and the Anchorage. The latter accommodation was really great, service from yourselves and your staff friendly and efficient. You’re real good people and I’ll be sure to be in touch should I visit your area again. With thanks and best wishes

Absolutely magic

"Absolutely magic. We had high hopes before arrival and we were not disappointed. If you're looking for clubs and late-night bars then go elsewhere, but if you want pure tranquility and outstanding natural beauty then this is the place for you. Throw in their fantastic breakfast, breath-taking views and great hospitality and you get the idea that this is truly somewhere special.
Top tip: go to the harbour to buy freshly caught fish, and cook on bbq on your veranda while enjoying a glass of wine. Tough to beat.
Highlights: kayaking on the river 50m from your room (free use of their gear), surfing, playing with their lovely dogs...
Go stay there. You won't regret it."
Date of Stay: November 2009
