Tamodi Lodge & Stables

Our History

Plettenberg Bay Accommodation,
Tamodi Guest Lodge and Stables -
Your home away from home.

Tamodi Lodge and Stables was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of a love for horses and the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Tsitsikamma coast. Joined by Chelsea, Owen’s daughter, and her husband, Scott, this family-run lodge encompasses everything that a family should ~ peace, relaxation, happiness and love.

This passion is reflected in every aspect of the farm, from the carefully designed main house, two free-standing honeymoon suites, the two free-standing luxury suites and stable buildings, which blend with the bush and natural environment, as well as the gardens, dams and the developing fruit and vegetable oasis. The setting is peaceful and relaxing , offering 7 luxury suites to enjoy and unwind in.

Tamodi Lodge is situated on a private nature reserve, and everyone goes above and beyond to preserve this slice of heaven. Guests can enjoy a guided hiking trail with a knowledgeable guide, there are two bird decks on the farm to sit, relax and soak up the surroundings, as well as mountain biking close by. With Keurbooms beach and its inviting white sands only 3 minutes away, you can also enjoy the ocean and even pop in for a refreshing sundowner at Enricos restaurant with its breathtaking ocean views.

Only 10km’s outside of Plettenberg Bay, it is an ideal venue to be away from the hive of the hustle and bustle in town, but close enough to enjoy Plett’s unique atmosphere when you feel the need. It is perfectly positioned for a holiday in the Garden Route.

Once you enter our doors you will be mesmerised by the wide open spaces, panoramic views and relaxed atmosphere, where you can be pampered and looked after while enjoying a glass of local wine from our extensive selection. This is a place to unwind from the daily stresses of life.

What our guests say:

We loved everything about Tamodi Lodge. It was the best part of our trip to South Africa. We stayed in one of the detached suites & it was fabulous! The room, the view, the bath, the outside shower, the walk-in wardrobe, the wood burner fire, the swing seat on the deck, the breakfast, the welcoming staff - all top notch.

...a fabulous, stylish lodge in a beautiful location; the views from Tamodi are literally breathtaking, overlooking the valley and distant mountain range.

This was, and remains, the best place we’ve ever stayed. Go find out for yourselves.

Well situated on the garden route for exploring we’d highly recommend. But don’t just stay for one night - this place is too special for that. We fell in love with it and will definitely go back.

We stayed in 7 different hotels during our trip through the garden route and this was definitely our favourite.

...it was far by the best place we stayed at during our 2 weeks in South Africa. Our room was the recently completed Deluxe Honeymoon suite which was absolutely fantastic. The room is open plan, very spacious and makes the very best of the breathtaking scenery as well as providing true comfort.

I am not a man given to gushing over any place. However in this instance I am having to reign myself in. Tamodi Lodge is one of the best residences I have stopped at. The views are stunning, the food is amazing and the wine cellar offers something for everyones palate

I only wish we could have stayed for longer ... perhaps forever 🙂

If this is 4 star then only Heaven should be allowed 5 star.

...supremely comfortable, private and, yes, just a bit decadent but in the most tasteful of ways. The place is a designer dream full of space, quiet art, peaceful moments, stunning views and beautiful furnishings. You really do feel as though this is one of the most stunning place you are ever likely to stay in.
