Anlin Beach House is a stylish mid-range guesthouse (skirting the mid-range / boutique border) with crisp modern interiors and friendly owners. It is one of our favourite Garden Route options if you want to dedicate yourself to some serious beach time.

Plettenberg Bay is a popular Coastal Resort on the Garden Route. A fast growing Coastal town with a strong holiday atmosphere. The big draw is the beaches. Vast Robberg Bay is a beautiful long stretch of sand backed by an affluent residential area (for the most part hidden behind the dunes) and is great for long strolls or playing in the surf. Central Beach is a busy town beach with more sheltered waters good for swimming. Keurboomstrand is a little wilder and offers both lagoon and surf. The area is best avoided during the peak domestic holiday season (November - January). Most of the best accommodation options in the area are well outside Plettengberg Bay itself (and the better for it), but if you want to be near a beach with the facilities of a Coastal holiday town on hand then Anlin Beach House is a fantastic option.

Anlin Beach House is perfectly situated just one row back from Robberg Bay Beach in a very affluent residential area. Although it is not directly on the beach, it is an easy stroll (even when laden with beach gear) and is the perfect base for exploring the Garden Route and getting in some time at the beach. This is a small guesthouse with just 3/4 spacious rooms in total. There are two one-bedroom garden suites with private access, patio and small garden, perfect for a couple, but can also take one extra small child on request. The family apartment has two/three bedrooms and is perfect for families. It has a beautiful kitchen and light and airy lounge opening out onto two patios, one north facing with mountain and sea views and the other looking south towards the Robberg Peninsula. The spacious main bedroom in the family apartment is en suite with a separate patio (this is not included if the apartment is taken at the 4 person rate). The family apartment sleeps 4 people if taken with two bedrooms or 5-6 people if taken with all three bedrooms.

All rooms are well equipped with kitchens and cooking equipment, and can be taken as self-catering or Bed and Breakfast (continental breakfast). In the small parking lot there is a storage chest well equipped with beach toys, body boards and the like. There is no swimming pool. The nearest restaurants are a short drive away.

For Families:

The luxury apartment at Anlin Beach House is perfect for families and highly recommended for those with older children who enjoy playing in the surf on Robberg Bay Beach (there are several lifeguard monitored swimming zones and regular intervals down the beach). With a well equipped kitchen and braai facilities are perfect for families who don’t want to be eating out every day.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
