Abalone Beach House Boutique Backpackers Lodge,...

THE ABALONE BEACH HOUSE STORY

Abalone is owned and managed by Grant and Elbi who, after many years of running a very successful 'traditional' backpackers on the beach in Plett, needed to kick back a bit and so decided to create a smaller, more intimate, boutique style lodge while maintaining the affordability of a backpackers.

After closing down the original lodge in 2004, which was in a rented premises, and building their own brand new triple storey house next door they re-opened in 2005 with the motto ''GUEST HOUSE STANDARDS AT BACKPACKER RATES''.

  

The House that Grant Built

Abalone is a 5 bedroom triple storey house, the bedrooms are on the ground and first floors and have magnificent views of the forest and mountain behind the house while the top floor is occupied by the lounge, dining room, kitchen and sundeck which all have spectacular 360 degree views of the sea, mountains and forest, the perfect whale and dolphin spotting vantage point. 


Guest Rooms

Our rooms are a lot more comfortable and spacious than the average backpacker lodge. Decorated in a whitewashed beach house / Scandinavian style, they all have private decks or garden access and come standard with quality orthopedic mattresses, luxurious feather duvets, fresh white linen, fluffy white bath towels, dresssing table with hair dryer and charging station and for those rare cold nights, fitted panel heaters and extra blankets.


The Beach

50 meters from the house is the 7 kilometers of uninterrupted pristine white sand that is Keurbooms beach. Regularly visited by the resident dolphins and seasonal whales it is bordered on one side by the dramatic Tsitsikamma coastline and on the other by the mouth of the Keurbooms lagoon. A sun lovers paradise by day and by night the perfect place to take a moonlight stroll (clothing optional!).
