This B&B is so far the best that I have been to. The beds are super comfortable and the food is great. I love the view and a plus is how easy it is to get to the beach. I am also very satisfied with the amount to do and the amount of restaurants in the near area. However the...

We based ourselves here to explore the Brenton/Knysna/Plettenburg/Craggs areas and it was a great choice. The room was spotless, bright and very beach house like. The view towards the ocean from the honeymoon suite was stunning. Derrick was a great host. I cannot fault this place. We hope to book again!

This Beach House had been recommended to us by friends, who had stayed on two previous occasions. The location was ideal with spectacular views over the sea. The rooms were spacious clean and bright, and the service very good. The owner Derrick could not have been more helpful. When we had a puncture in our rented car, he even changed...

Nice owner, Nice rooms and good place. The owner was very nice to us and we had a great stay. The house is near the beach and in good condition. The breakfast was very good with fruits and eggs of your choice.

Derek, the owner, is a lovely man who is so friendly and easy to get on with. He was very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay here in Brenton on Sea. We had originally thought that we were nearer the beach rather than higher up the hill but the path down was quite easy to negotiate, or, you can drive...

It took a bit of finding, but it was worth it. Our room was beautiful, looked in to the garden with small pool, a balcony along its length. Very well appointed. Breakfast is wonderful, personally cooked by mine host, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely recommend this place, only 10 mins into Knysna, two good restaurants nearby, a lovely beach...

Warm welcome from host Derrick. Excellent breakfasts with best omlettes. Spacious and clean rooms. Great walk to Buffels Bay on beach. A very comfortable experience and away from the crowds of Knysna.
