A gem of a beach house! Loved this house... Spacious, spotless, fab swimming pool, beautiful views across the sea and lagoon. Also Sweetness did our laundry so we left with a full bag of freshly laundered clothes. Perfect spot for a family holiday!!

A lovely house in a stunning location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The sea is a short walk away and the main street up the hill behind

Brilliant location, walking distance to 2 perfect beaches, as well as to the main high street (though a bit up hill!). Wonderful views. All the amenities, and very well equipped kitchen. Nice outside eating area overlooking pool and views to beach. Sweetness, the cleaning lady, also lived up to her name!

Pictures don't do the views justice! The view is phenomenal and the setting fantastic. It truly is an excellent holiday home - just walking distance to the beach. The house has everything you need with some really excellent special touches. Will definitely go back - highly recommended.

A wonderful holiday home overlooking and short walk to Lookout Beach. The host and co-host are fantastic and so is the house keeper. I highly recommend staying here, we had a fantastic holiday and it has all amenities you will require. We loved it !!

We (family of 4) enjoyed our stay at The Little Sanctuary a lot. The location, proximity to beach, shops and restaurants is just perfect. The house has everything you could wish for plus very well thought through details. Sweetness was of great help and even came in on a Saturday for us. Thanks, Greg, for being such a great and very responsive host!

A stunning home in a stunning location with a view that never gets old. Easy access to the beach and all the amenities - shops, restaurants and activities in Plettenberg Bay. I'd highly recommend The Little Sanctuary.

Fantastic location with expansive views above Lookout Beach, and easy walk down to the beach and the Deck (restaurant). Greg was very proactive in his communication, and while we didn’t get to meet him in person, we had a seamless check in and check out process, and general housekeeping was well laid out and clear. The house was spacious, spotless, well equipped, and recently renovated making it a lovely place for our family to base itself for a short holiday.

The house is in a stunning location, only 2 minutes walk to an amazing beach and less than 5 minutes to the main high street. The house has everything required. The beds are very comfortable and the pool area perfect for kids. It's very secure and I would definitely go back.

A truly amazing home, wonderfully furnished and equipped with everything you could need. It was spotlessly clean and the services of Sweetness, the maid, was the icing on the cake making sure everything was tip top every day. Communication with Greg the owner and Andrea who checked us in was easy and they are very responsive. The location of this house cannot be beaten in Plett, the views are so amazing and a short walk to both main beaches as well as a walking distance to the high street shops and restaurants. We made good use of the braai and pool area too which was spacious and a great entertaining space. Loved this place and would not hesitate to book again if we were lucky enough that it was available if we stay in Plett. Thanks again Greg, Andrea and Sweetness for an amazing stay.

Total Serenity: This is the second time we, and our extended family, have spent a week at The Little Sanctuary, and both times were in peak season. It's location, and the house itself, promotes a feeling of calm and rejuvenation - there is ample space and the facilities are immaculate - plus the view cannot be beaten.The owners run a tight ship and there is always immediate access should help be required.The housekeepers are industrious and friendly, and the property is exceptionally well secured.
If the crowds of peak season are likely to worry you - then this is the answer. It is a totally relaxing holiday with all needs catered for. If you are going out of season then put this up at the top of your list - there are few properties better sited, cared for, and serviced in Plett.
We have already booked to go back.

Best view in Plett :We holiday in Plett and Knysna at least once a year and the view from the Little Sanctuary is simply the best. Having the pool on the deck is amazing, as the kids can swim when we’re not on the beach and we can just relax with some wine, whiling the time away 😀
The accommodation is spotless and there is plenty of space for a family, even on those days where the weather is a little off (not often at all!).
Being able to take a very short walk down onto Lookout Beach is wonderful in peak season - no need to pack the kids into the car and try and find parking in the very full (and tiny) Lookout beach parking lot.
We also like the Lookout side of Plett better than the Robberg side, mainly because the summer sun stays up for longer, while at Robberg shadows fall over the beach earlier as the sun sets.
The furniture is more than adequate and very comfortable and we enjoyed reading books and chilling in the lounge in the evening.
All shops are close by, we had a car, which makes it easier to get there - it is well within walking distance (500m to 700m) but is uphill to the shops.
Andrea, Sweetness and Greg were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be coming again!

Absolutely awesome place - the view is stunning from just about every room. It’s simply a gorgeous house with some great amenities, like a pool, wonderful maid service, great kitchen, etc. It was great for our family, including a 7 month old and 3.5 yr old. Thanks Greg, Andrea, and Sweetness!

A fantastic week at the Little Sanctuary
We stayed a week at the Little Sanctuary and it was just fantastic. Great location close both to the beach and the little town. It was spacious and spotless and very nicely furnished. The terrace and pool was perfectly laid out with beautiful view to the bay. Big bedrooms with lovely beds - We slept well. Nice bathroom with spacious shower. In other words - it could not have been better - it was perfect.

A fantastic week at the Little Sanctuary
Absolutely Perfect:Our stay at The Little Sanctuary Beach House for Six nights was not long enough and was very sad to leave. This House really is in a fantastic location just a short stroll to the beach and The Look out Deck were great food is served. The house is spotlessly clean and fully…

Beautiful view, easy access to the beach and to town, plenty of space and all the amenities one or a family (or three families) could need. Thank you, in particular, to Sweetness and Andrea for making it such a great stay. We will recommend to anyone who may be traveling to Plett!

Outstanding accommodation: I am slightly reluctant to write this review. We’d like to keep this gem to ourselves! This house, with a view right over the bay, a few minutes walk from the beach is the perfect place to relax with a family - grandparents, parents and 3 children.
Well equipped kitchen, luxury en-suite rooms, pool with cover, additional outside dining area to enjoy the views and sunset. Excellent maid service Mon - Fri from Sweetness (well named) and an efficient, friendly welcome from Andrea, on behalf of the owner. This was our second stay and on both occasions, owner Greg went out of his way to see everything was to our liking.

A most wonderfully organised home in a spectacular position giving beautiful views and a fantastic outdoors home from home experience. I am sure we will be back (assuming we can beat the queues of folk who have already discovered this idyllic home!)
