We had a nice room ,but it felt a little humid. Everything was tastefully decorated,the house was old but renewed, so the bathroom was good and the bed very comfortable. Lovely breakfast in the morning and a very friendly host.

Thank you for your review. We have never not disclosed our location by the way. The GPS and full address is on our web site so cannot comment on that point that we are far from town. We are a short 15 min drive away. I have found out what the "Humidity" problem was in the bathrooms. Our cleaning ladies...

Stayed in the Honeymoon Suite for one night. Our hosts went the extra mile with lovely treats and MCC. We wanted to have a nice romantic dinner and was referred to Pembreys. The best referral and dinner we had in a long time. Will definitely be back, but this time stay much longer.

We stayed for 3 nights visiting family nearby so didn't use the full facilities of the house. Nevertheless, it was very welcoming to spend breakfast, which was all you would ask, and early evening in a very clean and spacious bedroom. The host was very interesting,informative and helpful. Would not hesitate to return to the house when in the area...

What a place to stay, Located almost at a cliff with the beach facing, an awesome venue to be, the rooms are really spacious and the view from balcony is just brilliant. Derrick the owner was really kind, he helped us with all the possible activities to do in the garden route region and would love to come back here.

What a find! Possibly the best beach in the world is just below this lovely B&B with it's gorgeous accommodation and garden alive with beautiful birds. Down the road the Bell Tavern provided a super supper. Thanks for your excellent hospitality Derrick!

Great hospitality with excellent information and suggestions in particular on local restaurants. The owner is a born raconteur based on his long business career based in the south of France. There certainly is a french feel about the place. Great bird life as well within the gardens.

When the Springbok's play, I'm behind them for sure even if they are playing against the French. But if the French rugby team is playing against another nation, then my heart is with the froggies. :) I certainly enjoyed my +- 30 years in France and know that this comes through when I talk about food and restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay at Brenton Beach House, and were only sorry that we didn't stay longer. I would recommend not making the same mistake! This is an excellent base for discovering the Garden Route and the owner, Derrick, perfects it!
