The Oysterbox Beach House is home away from home! Luxury accommodation with friendly staff and spectacular sunsets. A little piece of heaven. Beaches are within walking distance and the shops are not far away. A very relaxed holiday town.

Incredible view and beautiful house. Great coffee, good breakfast. Lovely soft bed and comfortable lounge area. Sarah welcomed us and was available if we needed anything. A bit pricey but definitely worth it for a special occasion.

Our family were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful beach house for a week in August. The views of Bushman's River and the sea are beyond breath-taking, it’s so easy to watch the ever changing scenes from the comfort of the deck. The house is five star luxury, with modern furnishings and has everything that you could possibly need....
