About Sandriver Lodge

Welcome to Sandriver Lodge


Centrally situated in the ” village” of St Francis Bay. Walk 500 m to the beach, or across the road to the shops and restaurants. Golfers need to walk 200 m to the entrance of the golf course.


Marc and Anneke May invite you to be a part of the relaxed holiday environment at Sandriver Lodge. Enjoy delicious breakfasts prepared by owner/ chef Anneke, with organic ingredients and fresh tastes to satisfy! Sleep comfortably with clean, fresh linens of white and blue, and warm snuggly blankets. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere at Sandriver Lodge.


Sandriver Lodge was established in 1996, by Marc and named after the majestic “sandriver” dune system running from St Francis Bay to Oyster Bay. Sandriver Lodge accommodates many different needs, whether you are a travelling family, business person, or a couple needing a relaxing break!


All our suites, self catering or overnight, family size or smaller, are all ensuite, with comfortable beds, fresh linen and towels, own entrances, with tea and coffee facilities. The rooms are personally designed, each with their own character, and a simple nautical feel. Welcome, and relax ……..


Accommodation: Stay Awhile


Newly renovated with a tiled roof we have gone back to the “beginning” of St Francis Bay with the rustic feel of fisherman cottages.

Copper pipes are exposed against bagged white walls, with sea shells in the plaster, beautifully tiled floors the colour of  beach sand and the relaxed feel of St Francis Bay.

” Cooking is my absolute best, and I love to be in the kitchen.  I trained in Kalk Bay, Cape Town with chefs from Rovos Rail and Constantia Uitsig, and have never stopped cooking! ”

We love to serve dinner in the Summer time, where we prepare delicious local seafood, large fresh fish fillets on the fire, family puddings and lots more..

Anneke also prepares ready made meals,  a range called..WHATS FOR SUPPER., see what stock is in the freezer, if you don’t feel like cooking dinner…
