Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.

Groot Brak Rivier / Great Brak River

Groot Brakrivier/Great Brak River nestles in a perfect Garden Route setting. The tranquil village is situated on the road from Mossel Bay to George and is a popular holiday resort. The beautiful, unspoilt beaches in the area, and the lagoon, offer safe swimming. The presence of Southern Right and other whales from May till November is one of the towns main attractions. The river that divides the village is rich in marine life while its wooded banks offer excellent opportunities for birdwatching. Follow the circular route through the village and experience the history and culture of years gone by. The sweeping panoramic views complement the outstanding characteristics of this jewel of the Southern Cape.

If you need total relaxation, discover the unspoilt beaches from Glentana to Little Brak River. Sport activities in Great Brak include tennis, squash, bowls and cycling along with the opportunity to practice your golf at Dolphins Creek Golf Estate and at De Kaap Driving Range.

The area is also close to the tourist attraction, The Island. Linked to the mainland by the original single lane-bridge. The Island is well known for its timber holiday homes.

The Great Brak River Museum and Information Centre (old school house built in 1902) in Amy Searle Street represents the history of the village after the arrival of the Searle family in the late 1850s, the usage of water power through the past century and the local history of the Khoisan. The Information Centre is housed in the Museum. The centre has brochures, maps as well as information on hiking routes, adventure & eco tourism available in the area.

The Watson Shoe Factory is described as the reason for the towns existence.

The village is also home to the biggest known Pepper Tree in South Africa (11,2 metres in diameter) and the Wolwedans Dam, where you can enjoy the magnificent views and unique dam wall.
