A delightful stop

Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

A most amazing stop. With a bottle of wine and a plate of olives and cheese bought on route we spent the afternoon on the veranda watching the sun go down over the river. Fantastic location, great accommodation and a very comfortable bed made this a spot we were sad to leave. Very friendly and spotlessly clean.

Alles en meer as wat ons nodig gehad het!



Ons het verskiklik lekker gebly by The Anchorage in Stilbaai! Die eienaars, Annette en Craig, is regte hartsmense en het uit hul pad uit gegaan om seker te maak alles is 100%. Ek sal die verblyf verseker aanbeveel vir almal! Ons het in kamer 4 gebly - alles was perfek - en wow, die mooiste sonsondergange!

A lovely getaway

Here’s what Simone wrote


“A lovely getaway for anyone looking to relax and get away from city life. Located on the river, secluded but still close to restaurants and attractions in the area. We enjoyed a beautiful kayak trip up the river and loved our stay. ”

"Tranquil and relaxing"

Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This place is a real hidden gem. We arrived not quite sure what to expect for our one night stay. wish we had be able to stay longer. What a wonderful surprise. The owners, Annette and Craig Throne were absolutely wonderful hosts. Super spacious room, wonderful views, and a very relaxing environment along the river. The bed was very comfortable, super clean room with both shower and bath along with excellent Wi-Fi reception. A bonus was the very friendly and well-mannered dogs, especially Bobby and the very special Rudy (wanted to take him home). This place is somewhere we will be taking the time to go back to, So very peaceful and enjoyable. We had a great dinner on the porch with sushi and other finger food from a local shop, a most enjoyable stay. More than recommend this place as a must stay venue.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a river view

"Stopover in Stillbay"

Reviewed 1 week ago

We had a very pleasant stay at Anchorage. Our hosts Annette and Craig were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. We found it a good place to break our journey on the way up to Plettenburg. Beware of the traffic cops just outside Heidelberg !

"Bucolic retreat"

Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Only one night stay but a little longer might have been nice. The location is excellent next to the river and although we never used the pool or a little sandy area by the river this gave the property an all-round feel of relaxation and comfort. The detached one bedroom we had had decent self-catering amenities and Annette the hostess was extremely friendly and would have accommodated any extra requirements had we had them. Still Bay itself we found a little sleepy and eating places rather basic but we had some nice fish and chips down by the beach.
