To our “Charming Hostess Hettie”
We thank you for the wonderful stay we had in your lovely home. The warmth kindness and professionalsism we experienced was exceptional.

Ps. We would love to visit you again soon.
Thank you for your hospitality and friendliness with accommodating the managers from our head office and regional office. They were very impressed with your guest house and found it very entertaining and comfortable. All three men assured me that their every need was met.
It is not often I am moved to write letters, but on this occasion, I felt I really had to share this gem my family and I recently discovered in the Eastern Cape. Having recently returned to live in South Africa and in Jeffreys Bay, after 16 years living in the UK, we find we often have friends coming to visit us. Not always having the space to accommodate the, we decided to investigate the local B & B situation.
Within walking distance of our home, we have found Hettie Matthee at House Pinnaquin. This is truly a gem of a place, the rooms are all individually decorated, attention to detail is second to none. The bathrooms are pure luxury. One can sit in bed or on your own private balcony and watch the sun rise up over the sea while drinking that early morning tea or coffee
On request, Hettie will cook you the most wonderful candlelit dinner for you and your guests. Her cooking is not to be missed! Not only is this a place for visitors, but the perfect romantic getaway for locals who do not want to venture too far from the family, yet still have that special time away. let Hettie prepare a romantic meal for two before retiring to your own special haven, candlelit if desired!
I hope its going well there in Jeffreys Bay. Everything here is back to normal. Actually sorry about that as I would have liked to stayed on a day or two longer. I thought I would write you a short letter first thing this morning before I get busy.
Firstly, from my side, thank you very much for everything. You have a lovely place and make a person feel so at home. Everything was just perfect! The rooms were wonderful and comfortable. It was a treat.
And as for the two Henry’s, those two Englishmen enjoyed themselves so much. They could not get over the place and said they were not used to such hospitality and to feeling so at home. Obviously I got rather cocky and said that Afrikaners are really nice people.
I would also like to say thank you for calling yesterday evening about the toothbrush and asking about our return trip. Henry junior was astounded; he could not believe it and neither could I. We really appreciate it! I can not thank you enough. One could not ask to meet someone nicer than you. Wishing you all the best with the business and hoping to see you again soon!
Very high quality throughout excellent hospitality!
The best questhouse ever!!! Stunning and a pleasure to stay at. Hettie knows how to spoil her guests.
Thanks for a delightful stay Hettie. House Pinnaquin is certainly one of the best guest houses we have ever stayed!! We will be back.
