Bettina and Michiel, Thank you for our wonderful stay at T’Niqua and for the awesome ride on Mandla.  I took this photo of Francois and the dogs on one of our walks and they all say thank you. You were wonderful hosts. Marita and Francois Burger

Hallo Bettina,
Natürlich gerne. Bei euch war wirklich die beste Unterkunft auf unserer Reise. Und das bedeutet einiges in diesem wunderschönen und gastfreundlichen SA.
Wenn wir wieder mal in der Gegend sind kommen wir auf jeden Fall wieder vorbei.
Macht so weiter und herzlichen Dank,

On behalf of the family I wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful weekend at T’Niqua Stable Inn!
It was a perfect weekend from all aspects, Mom had a wonderful time and so did we all.
The memories will be with us forever, especially the carriage ride you surprised us all with which added such a special touch to Mom’s surprise.
Please extend our thanks to Kirsten and Mike too for all there help and for taking the children for a ride on your beautiful horses.
The accommodation was super and all the help from Maria and the team was much appreciated.
You all made our weekend so special.
T’Niqua Inn is a lovely venue and with the most amazing view.

We had a simply wonderful stay at T’Niqua. Michiel and Bettina were so welcoming and kind and generous and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, the beautiful surroundings and the horses. A truly memorable experience. Thank you

Value for money. Schöne, saubere, stillvoll eingerichtete und große Zimmer. Liebe zum Detail. Großer Gemeinschaftsbereich.Liegt zwar ausserhalb von Plettenberg, aber mit dem Auto ist man in ca. 15 min in der Stadt. Highlights für die Kinder war natürlich ein 45min Pferdeausritt. Reitkenntnisse nicht erforderlich. Abolut zu empfehlen. Bereuen es, dass wir nur eine Nacht dort waren.

We had the most amazing time and day out at T’Niqua Stable Inn. I could not have asked for a better outride and picnic basket which you so kindly prepared!

Thank you so very much! I am sure you will be seeing us again and if anyone asks me to rate the service, facilities and our overall experience I will be so happily to give a 15/10!!! It was amazing!

T’Niqua Stable Inn is your destination if you’re content with being 10 minutes from downtown Plettenburg Bay. This self-catering/B&B combines all the elements of a relaxing rest spot for families or adults in search of something just a bit different.  Here on this horse farm, perched high on top of a mountain, you get to interact with the owners, other visitors, farm workers and big, friendly Percheron horses.

Rooms are off a very large ranch style great room filled with comfy leather chairs and sofas that include many private areas for eating, reading, conversation, TV watching or a fire.  The beds are comfortable, en suite baths very modern with lots of electrical plugs and lights in each room.  Michael, our host, is very gracious, along with Benita, his wife, in helping you with planning excursions and even gave us a tour of downtown. He will gladly arrange horseback riding for you or drive you around the property in an antique horse drawn carriage. You’ll learn about “The People of the Mist” who lived in caves centuries ago and also enjoy a gorgeous view of Plettenberg Bay below.  Perhaps the most memorable feeling I have of T’Niqua is feeling part of a large caring international family, who are genuinely interested in you and your well being. 

P.S.  If you order breakfast, order Maria’s omelets.  Delicious!

Betina and Michiel are very hospitable and friendly people, knowledgeable about the area and helpful to the extreme (lent me power tools to go and fix my daughter’s apartment nearby, etc.) Where do you find anyone prepared to do that? We came and went from early to very late and they were always accommodating. Very homely atmosphere. Nice farm feeling with complimenting space and furniture.
