Bayside Lodge, a 5 bed roomed bed & breakfast, is perfectly positioned in a quiet residential area of PlettenbergBay. With its proximity to Plett’s magnificent beaches, the unspoilt Robberg Nature Reserve, sporting facilities (including world class golf courses), shopping centres and restaurants, Bayside Lodge is a perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route and its myriad activities and attractions.
Encompassing peace and tranquillity, this four star graded lodge is a mere 4 minute walk from Plett’s famous blue flag Robberg 5 beach. Since taking over Bayside Lodge in March 2014, owner/managers Bernie and Adrienne have created a friendly atmosphere which is both warm and elegant. Personal attention and exceeding expectations are the hallmarks of this popular lodge.
Welcome briefings are given on arrival with hot/cold facecloths and a glass of juice provided. Guests are offered maps, brochures and discount vouchers for various activities, and bookings are made at recommended restaurants. Most guests enjoy the walk along Robberg beach to the superb restaurants on Central beach for dinner and come back to the lodge by taxi.
Scrumptious breakfasts are served in the elegant dining room or patio overlooking the tranquil garden. The buffet offers a wide selection of fruit, cereal, yoghurt, cold meat, cheese, muffins and toast. Cooked breakfasts are prepared to order by our cheerful waitresses Martha and Ntombi. Packed breakfasts are available for guests departing early.
Nestled in a secluded corner of the garden is a sparkling salt water swimming pool with umbrellas and comfortable pool loungers provided. The well-established garden is a tranquil place to relax and watch the great variety of birds visiting the bird feeders and bird baths.
Our comfortable double volume guest lounge with under-floor heating and fireplace is perfect for relaxing and browsing through books or planning your next holiday. There is a large flat screen television with full DSTV bouquet and DVD player, a library as well as board games. Sundowners are enjoyed at the bar or on the patio, which also has a barbecue for guests to use.
The suites are all different with their own individual theme and feel, offering various options for guests. Honeysuckle has a Jacuzzi spa bath and Harmony its own lounge. Sunkissed and Lighthouse are perfect for a small group or family and finally Finch Cottage has a kitchen and sitting room with its own patio and barbecue. All suites have flat screen televisions, small fridges, tea/coffee making facilities, bathrobes, bathroom amenities, electronic safes, fans, heaters, snack baskets and mini bars.
Families are welcome – Finch Cottage is available for parents with children under six and we do have a cot. There is off-street parking behind an electric gate and the property is covered by CCTV.
We recommend a two or three night stay in order to enjoy the beaches, Robberg Nature Reserve, the Plett wine route and the various animal sanctuaries at The Crags. Day trips combining Knysna and Sedgefield or Natures Valley, Tsitsikamma and Storms River are also a must!
