GUEST REVIEWS

"We very much enjoyed our stay in the house, and will recommend it to friends and family.  The house was welcoming, clean, tidy and well equipped right down to the little chocolate on the bed.  The linen and towels were clean and fresh.  The flowers and vegetation were attractive.  The owners were very responsive and well organised."  (Richard Bodin - visited February 2017)

"The position of Mountain Mist, close to the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, makes it a unique destination in South Africa.  We were able to visit with family, and the outstanding feature for us was the fact that the layout of the house, together with multiple bathrooms, made it easy to have our own space as needed!  We loved it.  The facilities and presentation of the home were upmarket with fine sheets and linen.  There were several areas for communal eating, including one table literally in the fynbos.  It needs to be "discovered".  Overall, Mountain Mist was an ideal getaway for us to spend time with family in a luxurious setting and also have space for ourselves.  We had a wonderful time."  (Robert Schweitzer - visited January 2017)

"The house is very well-equipped with quality linen and luxury equipment, including electric blankets!  Excellent attention to detail and very comfortable.  Will definitely be back."  (Fuad d.V. - visited October 2016)

"Quality bedding, very quiet neighbourhood, lots of space.  We immediately feel at home."  (Annatjie J. - visited September 2016)

"House and it's setting is beautiful - boasts magnificent views of the Kogelberg mountain behind and the ocean in front.  The outside barbeque area was not really inviting or homely like the rest of the place - quite overgrown with uneven paving - poses some difficulty for the disabled or elderly."  (Sue v.K. - visited September 2016)

"A very nice and well-equipped house away from home - from the cosy fireplace inside to the "chilled" outside braai area.  A must for those wanting to visit Betty's Bay."  (Matt Henstock - visited May 2016)

"A fantastic place to unwind in the beautiful surroundings of Betty's Bay.  We sat on the balcony looking out and watching the world go by and feeling the body unwind.  Set against the mountain the view out back makes you feel almost in the bush.  The rooms were great, the courtyard was cool under the tree next to the Braai and the deck.  A great shade spot in the afternoons.  All-in-all a great weekend had by all, and we definitely would like to go back"  (Guy and Sharon M - visited February 2016)

"A breath of fresh air.  The scenery, close to all the necessary amenities."  (Kaylene - visited February 2016)

"A very pleasant time was had by all the family.  Plenty to do and lovely accommodation."  (Ross B, - visited February 2016)


"We stayed at Mountain Mist in Betty's Bay, everything looked just as on the website, was even better.  The place was neat, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped and everything worked.  The area was peaceful and if possible we will definitely go again."  (Idette Kirstein - visited December 2015)

"We spent a weekend at Mountain Mist.  The experience was phenomenal and I would definitely recommend this to anybody."  (Tezlyn Naidoo - visited November 2015)


"We enjoyed a weekend at Mountain Mist.  The place is very spacious, clean and child-friendly.  I would recommend this place."  (Bryan Lanne - visited July 2015)

"We had the most wonderful time at Mountain Mist! The house is spacious and beautiful and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need. Very sweet touches of chocolates on pillows make it even more special.  Easy walk to the beach even with the little ones."  (Colette Naude - visited January 2015)


"Peaceful and comfortable, highly recommended. We enjoyed the stay very much." (Ruth Jardine - visited January 2015)

"I took two of my friends out here (with hubby and kids) for the weekend to celebrate their combined birthday. All in all we had a great stay!! The house was really well organised with lots of notes and instructions left around so it was always easy to find switches etc. Also the kitchen and all the rooms were really well equipped and we didn't struggle at all as one sometimes does when renting a house and then not having half of the utensils you need. The lounge/kitchen/entertainment area is nice and big so we had lots of space to hang out even when it was raining outside. The layout of the rooms and bathrooms is great and so we didn't feel like we were living in each others space all the time. There is a shop and pub just down the road as well as being just a 5-minute drive to the beach and the penguin reserve (which the kids loved)." (Aimee Bell - visited November 2014)


"Mountain Mist is a beautiful place with tranquil surroundings.  The attention to detail is very apparent and makes the establishment and stay all that more wonderful. I would definitely recommend this getaway." (Michel-Leigh Mathou - visited October 2014)


"An absolute fantastic place! Neat and very well maintained. What made our stay so pleasant and comfortable, is the manner in which the owners went that extra mile for their guests. Absolutely 5-star." (Ian Dennis - visited September 2014)


"I was really impressed with the house, it exceeded my expectations.  The house is beautiful and I will definitely be returning back soon for another weekend away." (Joy Fourie - visited September 2014)


"Beautiful establishment with a lovely view. Everything was clean and it was well-equipped.  Ons het die plek as netjies en goed ingerig ervaar.  Daar is 'n mooi uitsig.  Ons het daar gebly tydens 'n groot storm, so het ongelukkig nie geleentheid gehad om die braai te gebruik nie.  Die kaggel werk egter baie goed!  Ons sal beslis weer wil gaan." (AnsonĂ© du Toit - visited July 2014)


"We had a great four days at Mountain Mist. The house was well equipped and there is plenty to do in the area." (Mark Frankel - visited July 2014)


"Our stay at Mountain Mist was absolutely fantastic.  I will definitely be back.  Thank you so much." (Lauren van Wyk - visited March 2014)


"What a perfect getaway quiet for a family. A beautiful house nestled against the mountain with gorgeous views of the ocean. We encountered a family of mongoose who visited a few times, and were in awe of the beautiful birds around the house. The owners have gone out of there way to provide a comfortable and efficient home with every modern convenience in the kitchen. I highly recommend to anyone who needs a break away from the city." (Lindsey Martin - visited March 2014)


"Beautiful house, fantastic location, great facilities inside and outside!  Collecting the keys wasn't easy, jacuzzi was cold water only." (Anonymous - visited February 2014)


"Having stayed at numerous places all along the coast of the Eastern and Western Cape over the past 10 years, this has easily been the best accommodation we have had to date. If ever we should stay in Betty's Bay again, we would love to return to Mountain Mist. In particular, we found the house to be very well equipped with quality furnishings and very neat and clean. In addition, the rooms are very spacious. I would definitely recommend Mountain Mist to anybody." (Jans Steyn - visited January 2014)


"Mountain Mist was such a pleasant surprise for us: a spacious home at the foot of the Kogelberg mountain, with wilderness stretching from the back door, and an awesome view from the long front veranda. The spacious accommodation is superb and pristine, with every detail taken care of, blissfully comfortable beds with white linen... and a chocolate on each pillow!" (Fran Pett - visited January 2014)


"The house and value-for-money was tremendous, an ideal place to be peaceful and rest with friends." (Keith McCarogher - visited November 2013)


"A lovely stay at a beautiful place!" (Wikus van Zyl - visited October 2013)


"Home from home, would highly recommend for an easy weekend away." (Jackie Naughton - visited September 2013)


"We really had a very wonderful stay at Mountain Mist over the long weekend. The view was stunning. Not only was the house spacious and clean with all the conveniences we needed for the weekend, the owner was very professional and friendly. The electric blankets really were a hit. We will definitely be returning." (Ilse Braaf - visited August 2013)


"We were a group of guys on a weekend away from our wives, and we found Mountain Mist to be a great venue. The open plan kitchen / lounge, where we spent most of our time, is spacious and bright, and the bedrooms are compact and neat. The entertainment area is very nice, and the jacuzzi is a nice touch, but unfortunately it is a cold water only jacuzzi, and the weather wasn't warm enough for us to be able to enjoy it. The house was equipped with everything that we needed, and it is close to the shops and about twenty minutes walk from the beach, so we lacked for nothing. I would definitely go back again." (Robbi Scargill - visited June 2013)


"We had a fantastic family weekend away at Mountain Mist. There was plenty of space for the extended family, the house was clean and comfortable and the view was spectacular. We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy the outdoor braai area and jacuzzi." (Faye Black - visited June 2013)


"Incredibly beautiful setting. Perfect for large or small groups. Great little retreat for winter and/or summer." (Taariq Mobara - visited June 2013)


"Lovely, well maintained family home. Three bedrooms en suite - two beds sharing one bathroom. Wonderful crisp white linen provided. A really relaxing place. Spacious living area and well equipped kitchen. Wonderful sea and mountain views although a drive to the beach. Lovely mountain hikes starting in your back yard! A highlight was sitting in the jacuzzi looking at the mountain backdrop." (Neil Spencer - visited January 2013)
