What an amazing option in such a gorgeous slow seaside town - definitely a top choice - definitely planning to go back!
The views are incredible (whether your room looks over the water or into the lush garden) and it's literally RIGHT ON THE WATER - there is even a little path and steps down to the rocky lagoon. It's quiet and private and the hosts have thought of everything you could need - so your stay is the utmost in comfort including chocolates on the pillow! Everything was perfectly clean - and the fact that you take your shoes off at the door was perfect! Lots of space, beautiful terraces (covered and warm with extra blankets) and wait, did I mention the views?! An easy choice for Sedgefield! Also, make sure you visit the local market if you're around over a weekend.
Would recommend this place to anyone. Exceptional views and accommodation. The rooms and house were all great. They even had board games which helped at night when we didn’t want to go out.
Only very minor issue was the internet kept dropping out or slow. Mosquitos were a pain but all beds had netting. We just went out and bought our own coils to repel them. As I said very minor problems considering how nice everything was and did I mention the views.
We had a big braai cookup using the outdoor Webber. Was a fantastic night.
Big thank you to Gail and Dudley for everything.
True to its name, Sedgies on the Water is right by the lagoon. We spent many hours at low tide reading by the water and enjoying the use of the canoe.
Having a morning cup of tea, seeing the fish jump out the water and hearing the birds chirping is the perfect start to a day. The view is magnificent and there's so much to do around Sedgefield, from paragliding to markets and restaurants.
The house itself is just perfect. The hosts really thought of everything one might need to be comfortable. Definitely recommending Sedgies on the Water to everyone!
We had such a wonderful time at Sedgies on the Water! The room I stayed in overlooked the water - such stunning views! - but the windows had lovely solid blinds making it shady and cool when we wanted to sleep in too. The whole apartment was beautifully clean, well-equipped, and certainly encouraged one to relax. I especially loved that everyone took off their shoes at the door. The hosts were very considerate and we were greeted with a fruit bowl, bottle of wine, chocolates on the pillows - even bug spray for balmy nights spent of the deck - small touches that really made us feel welcome. There is direct access to the lagoon and we swam, sunbathed and rowed out in the little boat provided - what a treat! Sedgefield is a lovely slow town with lovely beaches, a local market and even paragliding from the hill above. I can't wait to stay here again!
I stayed here with my wife and son for a week and we can’t wait to return again.
Following a very warm and informative welcome from the owners Gail and Dudley, you can’t help but be impressed by the wonderful view across the lagoon from the spacious property. You can enjoy the views from two terraces (one covered) or from two of the large bedrooms.
The owners keep everything very clean and well maintained and we slept very soundly on the big comfortable beds. Some of the other features that helped made our stay special was the option to use an outside (but private!) hot & cold shower, bird calls, a closed garage for our car and a big efficient fridge.
Down from the property is a small beach which, due to limited general access from the road, we had to ourselves. A short walk away at the mouth of the lagoon the main beach starts and I’m told it stretches for miles.
Sedgefield itself is a quiet place but it has a decent sized Pick N Pay supermarket and there are good restaurants in the area. On Saturdays there is a big local market selling a wide variety of things including fresh and cooked food.
No hesitation in giving Sedgies on the water a top rating.
