We stayed at six different places on our long honeymoon and this was possibly our favourite. We didn't want to leave. We were directed to our unit (very private and exclusive - we stayed at Fish Eagle). When we looked at the view from the kitchen window it was an emotional experience. After our arrival we were visited and warmly welcomed by the friendly owner/manager (Gerrit) and told about the baboons and given other interesting information. This place is beautiful very clean and homely and the perfect home for the nature lover. I was even inspired to do some charcoal sketches of the area from our front porch. There is also a beautiful trail to explore (mildly challenging but worth it), and some great treetop platforms for bird watching. At night the sound of the great outdoors was ushered in with the sounds of frogs from the nearby pond. It was the perfect get-away experience, we only wish we brought our binoculars to better appreciate all the bird-life.

review by Cathy Stead


We spent three nights at Clairewood and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a beautiful spot and I highly recommend it as a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle.

review by Jen Groom, South Africa

"Absolutely fabulous!"

We stayed at Clairewood for 3 nights, and only wish we could have stayed longer. Lelanie and Gerrit were great, the accommodation luxuriously comfortable and the view just breathtaking. We had everything we needed, (and more) were close to all the super Garden Route attractions and still felt had the privacy and georgeous surrounds of the forest. Highly recommened. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back!
