It is a beautiful, bright day here so we wander out the beach access gate of Last Word Long Beach directly on to Long Beach. A few steps later, their toes kissed by the seafoam, they leave nothing but footprints as they fall in step and easy conversation of a long overdue catch-up.
NC: Fanie, it's so good to see you again. FW: Thanks, Nicky, it's always good to have you back in Kommetjie with our fresh sea air and endless views.
NC: How long have you held your position as General Manager? FW: It's been six years (already!) since my first day as General Manager here at Last Word Long Beach.
NC: What is your best part of the day? FW: Getting to see the sun go down over the ocean is my favourite part of my day.
NC: During your time with us, have you had any guests who didn't ever want to leave? FW: Oh, yes! Our guests always say that they wish they could've stayed longer because they don't want to leave this paradise.
NC: What does the term 'beyond boutique' mean to you and your team? FW: We pride ourselves on our service, attention to detail and going the extra mile with a smile. We make our guests feel 'home' away from home.
NC: For which experience is Last Word Long Beach best known? FW: We are located right on the beach, with kilometres of soft white sand and the most stunning views on our doorstep here at Last Word Long Beach. I would say, however, that our delicious seafood meals complemented by our romantic setting and the legendary sunsets are our best-loved experience. There is so much more to mention, but I will stop there for now.
