We had a wonderful stay at Oyster Bay, despite getting lost on the way in the staff were really amazing about ensuring we made it there safely. I would highly recommend this place to everyone and the massage was brilliant.

Nice walkingpaths through the dunes and a wonderful long sandy beach. Long gravelroad to the guesthouse but it's worth. Dune drives and horseridings possible. We only stayed one night but we would like to stay longer.

This was my best ever breakaway, the dune safari was the ultimate!!!!! Only the breakfast menu could have changed daily! It can still be a set menu but have to change daily. We were booked in for three nights and the breakfast was the same every morning.

Thank you very much for your positive review. We are also thrilled that our gravel road is in a better condition comparing to the past. We will bring your compliment of the guides to them. They love the horses and the rides with all our guests on the beach. See you next time!
