"Our happy place"
09 Sep 2018
Lillian Van Velden
"Hondeklipbaai remains at the top of our 'happy places' list with its uncomplicated and simple lifestyle. Although there is a definite ugrading of roads within the village itself, the dirt roads approaching Hondeklipbaai mean that it is not an ideal one night stopover place although it may be easily be done. However, Honne-Pondokkies are well situated for restaurants and the 'sights', longer stays are most enjoyable and give one the opportunity to braai or sample good food and sundowners overlooking the picturesque little bay area and lighthouse. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, however, it is worth noting that if one is staying for more than one night the cottages are not serviced, meaning that your belongings will not be tampered with when you are out. It also means that it is advisable to take along an extra toilet roll or two. In winter, although a heater and one extra blanket is provided an extra blanket would go a long way to making Cottage 1 more comfortable. There is ample fridge and freezer space as well as gas stove if one is self catering. Walking shoes are a good idea as walking around the village is both safe and most enjoyable. It must be noted that a section of the road (Klipfontein) has been tarred near the N7 on the Garies side approach road making the drive safer and more pleasant. Sadly the road signs, directions and google maps don't seem o reflect this as yet."

"I enjoyed the furnishings of the bungalow having a lovely gas stove and good quality cooking tools. The swimming pool with lounges was refreshing to cool down during afternoon. The cottage was in walking distance to the beach and staff were most accommodating to ensure my father and I enjoyed our stay!"

"These are the chalets I expected and booked for. Our accommodation was actually an old house, nothing like these chalets.Establishment Response:The Honne-Pondokkies advertise 6 units of whom 2 are typical west coast units. You have booked one of them and therefore it was a traditional west coast unit and not one of the thatch units. RegardsMD Swanepoel"

"Die water situasie groot probleem.Uitsig van Pondokkie 1 word bederf deur Pondokkie 2 se voertuig parkeering.Establishments response:Daar was geen waterprobleem oor hierdie naweek wat julle ons besoek het nie,maar deel my bestuurderes my mee dat jy blykbaar die reserwe tenk oopgemaakhet en dat 'n klomp water terug in die munisipale pyp ingestoot het.Jy het voorts ook sonder toestemming met die drukpompie gepla. Die parkeringvoor Pondokkie 1 en 2 is baie groot en is ons jammer as die gaste byPondokkie 2 so parkeer het dat dit jou see uitsig belemmer het, maar sou onsdit waardeer het as jy tydens jou besoek dit onder ons aandag gebring het,waarna ons dadelik die gas sou versoek het om sy voertuig te skuif."

"Hondeklip baai is quite far from city life. It was a great pleasure to find Honne-Pondokkies on our trip in the North Cape. Chalets are great and well equiped.We can recommend everyone to have dinner/breakfast at Die Rooi Spinnekop restaurant. What a great food in a small village"
