“Beautiful Aberni on Sea”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

Me and my companion stayed for 8 days this December (2011) at Aberni on Sea (which we found on this site). It was by far one of the best guesthouses that we have stayed at over the years. It's like an upmarket apartment/ hotel feel. Everything lived up to the recommendation. Bernard and Anita are friendly and professional all in one. Close enough to the beach to walk back should you forget anything and a quick drive should you need the shops. Loved it and would do it again.

We stayed at Aberni on Sea in November 2011.
It is a fantastic guest house in a great location! The beach is approximately 100 metres from the guesthouse.
The accommodation is beautiful. An added benefit to the accommodation is the kitchenette in each room.
Bernard and Anita made us feel very welcome!
I would highly recommend Aberni on Sea to anyone staying in Plettenberg Bay!

We stayed at aberni on Sea in Oct 2011, during our vacation to SAfrica. It was the best place we stayed out of the 5 places we visited in S.Africa. It was very nice of Bernard to offer us a discounted rate. The Mini apartment with a big balcony was very good. The bed was comfortable, they had all the necessary items one needed for cooking in the American style Kitchen/Dinning. The beach was walking distance away.. the walk to the beach is also nice and the area is quite area. All the main restaurants were close by including a shopping market. Both Bernard and Anita made us feel at home and are such warm hearted people, would definitely recommend this place.

Bernard and Anita are the friendly, helpful host and hostess of this great establishment.
We happened upon Aberni whilst searching for accommodation last Sunday evening.
As it is not the season we found that many of the places we tried were closed and were prepared to take any accommodation in order to have a bed for the night.
Instead we found Aberni, a well-equipped, comfortable self-catering establishment situated close to the beach.
Bernard was well informed about the restaurants and what to do and where to go and was also very helpful with internet issues we had. Anita maintains the facilities in spotless condition and we were very happy to have stayed there and definitely recommend other travellers to try them.
Their rates were very competitive.

We visited Plettenberg Bay at the beginning of June 2011 and stayed at Aberni on Sea for 4 days. The accommodation and service offered even more than we expected!

We were heartily welcomed by the hosts, Bernard and Anita. A full English breakfast (with choices and extras) was promptly served every morning, with personal attention by our hosts. Our suite was spacious, sunny and contained everything necessary for a few days away from home. The king size bed and luxurious linen made for a very good night's sleep, and the en suite bathroom was spotless.

Aberni on Sea is exactly what the name implies - the pristine white beach and turquoise sea is basically on the doorstep; just across the street and down a few stairs. Bernard and Anita pointed out a few of the most beautiful and interesting places to visit in the area and assisted us in visiting some of them. We could see that they are very passionate about their town and hospitality.

We loved spending the few days at Aberni and our only regret is that it could not have been longer, but we will definitely be back in future!

I spent four days at Aberni on Sea. The welcome was cordial. Enjoyed the professional and caring services of Bernard and Anita. Bernard recommened sight - seeing attractions,
restaurants and provided transport to and from bus stop which was situated on the national highway. His personal phone was available for me to make national calls.
The accomodation was comfortable and luxurious. The kitchen was well equipped.
Breakfast was delicious and prepared tiniously.
The beach was fantastic and only 100m walk from the accomodation.

We were welcomed with smiles from Bernard and Angelina into a contemporary modern reception and shown the two spacious rooms with Tea, TV and Towels - my favourite 3 Ts. This included Beach Towels in a basket. A lovely touch.

The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and a pleasure to use. Every detail had been thought through. I loved the beach shells in the bathroom mug and soap dish.

We love beaching and Bernard gave a foldup beach umbrella to take to the long sandy beach that was a short walk across the road.
Plett, as the locals say is a great central place to stay, as it is a short drive to the amazing natural parks and lagoons at Storm River and Knysna.

If we could have stayed longer we would have stayed at Aberni.
Breakfast - fresh and delicious. Well cooked Angelina thankyou.

It was easy to give them a gratuity, it is such a lovely place. THANK YOU
