We arrived at the Beach House at the end of our 2 week visit to South Africa and found it the perfect place to relax before travelling back to the UK. Very friendly staff and lovely location overlooking the beach.

This was one of the best places I ever stayed in. Keep up the professional yet homely service. It also have a beautiful view over the ocean and I could stay sitting on the balcony the entire day looking over the waves playing in the distance.

Wonderful accommodation in a perfect location. Breakfast was beautifully done and presented with the only problem that one wanted to eat too much. Service was spot on and the overall experience was very positive and left one with the feeling of being welcome. .Well done.
