"We had a great stay at Bella Manga, which provided an attractive and peaceful setting away from the bustle of Plett. We had a self catering suite which was well equipped and with a good veranda. The pool was large to enable a good swim. The grounds were spacious and we enjoyed sharing some wine around the fire pit with fellow guests under the stars. Thanks to the owners and staff and in particular to our neighbour guests Andrea and Charlie for making us feel welcome. We look forward to returning."

"A wonderful area in the country - pure peace - very nice hosts - beautiful round huts - a great meal - we felt very comfortable and would love to come back. Bella Manga is wonderful if you are looking for peace and quiet."

"Stunning location with the sounds of frogs at night and a dawn chorus - a must to return to. An absolutely stunning location. Wonderful family with a great vision for how to make your stay perfect. Sadly we were only there one night - I would have happily stayed for a week.."

Chris and Jenny Sturgess bought Bella Manga in April 2017, leaving Johannesburg for the beautiful area of Plettenberg Bay.

"We wanted to live in the Garden Route, raise our two boys outside of the city and run a business together. Together with our dogs and ever-growing farm animal pet collection, we want to share our 40ha piece of paradise with our guests.

We started by renovating and upgrading all the facilities, making an already amazing place, even better! It's an ongoing process as we continue to respond to our guests' needs, including becoming an ever more environmentally friendly holiday option.

We are owner managed and flexible in our offering. We strive to ensure our guests feel especially welcome with personal service and attention to detail.

We love to create a private hide-away for couples and we are also child and family friendly. We look forward to welcoming you!"

"The best way to experience Afrika! This collection of historic buildings is in the middle of the country side with monkeys visiting you (from a safe distance) in the morning, beautiful views during breakfast and everything you need to relax during the day (and night). Everything is very clean and well maintained and the staff super friendly! You can enjoy the pool, pet animals, go for a nice long countryside walk, visit Plettenberg/Robberg or just chill. All the luxury you need, for a super price. This is Africa at it's best!"

"Is like coming home, feel in my habitat. Delicious breakfast. Possibility to eat something after a long drive in the evening. The large garden with benches and terraces. Lovely pool with pool house. The cheerful friendly hostess and host."

"Jenny and Chris are wonderful hosts. We arrived late afternoon and Jenny cooked us a beautiful meal at the last minute and our boys loved exploring the farm."
