A lot has happened since you were last here!

La Gratitude has turned 100!

In April 2017, La Gratitude hosted her own 100th birthday party. 100 guests came together to celebrate 100 years of amazing memories of the old house – and to toast the next 100! Most of the guests had stayed in the house at some point over the century – they enjoyed sharing their stories of fabulous days by the sea, often watching dolphins and whales.

The Old Lady has been restored!

We all need a little help as we get older – so we have spent the last year rethatching and restoring window frames and doors to their original look. The stoep on the sea view of the house has been marbled, and the outside walls have been painted. The Old Lady has returned to her former glory!

There is a new warm welcome for our guests!

Nozi is our new and wonderful Housekeeper – following the retirement of Iris. Nozi loves to give a big warm welcome to our guests and enjoys looking after them during their stay. Nothing is too much trouble for her. We are delighted to have Nozi looking after our guests and keeping the old house looking good.

Some things however have not changed – like the beautiful views over Grotto Beach!

We hope to welcome you back to La Gratitude to be part of her continued, wonderful story!
