TravelPod Member ReviewsHalcyon House Plettenberg Bay
Carolyn Cooney is such a wonderful, warm, informative hostess. I am so impressed with her entrepreneurial spirit and savvy. Her home was our home, we felt so comfortable here. Her staff were extremely attentive and anticipated our every need. The breakfasts were fantastic and the real silver flatware and Spode China made the meal extra special. Just lovely.

Fruit farming, sheep farming some ostrich farming, and later some cattle farming was scattered by the roadside but it was the rolling hills that impressed me most. On the way, we stopped at a small bakery and bought Koeksisters, a delightfully sticky white deep-fried pastry. They ...
Monday 2nd April
First day of work, started at 7am (******* early!). We basically followed some guy around all day and learned what he was doing. Our first mission was to find the resident domestic cat and give him his meds. We searched around the cafe and office where he would usually be found that early but no luck. We headed through the gate towards the main house as this ...
... Neil in Knysna, and driving him back to Langkloof, we decided to follow the riders along Route 339. That meant driving through the Prince Alfred Pass. Sheila decided to be the driver, because the narrow road twists and winds its way over four minor mountain ranges, and crosses seven rivers before it reaches the coast. The edge of the road is marked with large rocks, or more often, vegetation. It is very deceptive, because what might appear to be a safe place to ...
