“Very upmarket backpackers”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

Right on the beach with amazing views of the coast, I would have said this was more like a B&B than a backpackers, my boyfriend and I went for a double room very clean and comfy. Definitely one of the best backpackers I have ever stayed in. The location is not too far from the centre and well worth the distance out of town for the sea views and quiet.

this was not my first visit to BHB, but surely the best. thanks to jono who took us walking along the rail to vic bay for a surf and the fire he build us to prepare our dinner.
thanks to lieze who was such a great sport and so friendly. breathtaking views.
we were camping and three tents battled it out for the only stretch of grass, we decided to extend our stay and moved to the dorms. the white bedding made me sooo happy.
thank you BHB, we will be back!

We stayed here in January 2013. Great location, slightly elevated from the beach but only a 2 minute walk to the waves. We had a double room inside the main house which for the money we paid, we could not fault. Annie (who we dealt with) was fantastic, she was very helpful and honest with places to go and things to do. We really enjoyed our stay here and loved the beautiful beach. The water was warm and clear, unlike other reviews I never experienced any currents. The Beach House would be ideal to book out for large groups.
Thanks Annie, loved it!

Nice rooms and dorm for good value. Small healthy breakfast for R 10
Annie and her staff can help with anything, try their best to arrange things spontaneously
Paragliding around the corner
Best espresso in ZA. Ask her for a cappuccino...

on my journeys i never stayed at a backpackers place so great as this one!
staff is amazing, the house and its location is stunning, the village and the surroundings are just a place to stop and take a look at!

the owners made this place and by that our stay so special

we will be back

We had another amazing stay at the Beach House this December! A short walk to the beach / town, or a fantastic night in, meeting wonderful people, enjoying good food & drink at the Beach House whilst enjoying the amazing view from the deck. Annie & her fantastic staff makes you feel welcome & ensure that your stay is comfortable & enjoyable! This really is our home away from home! See you very soon!!!

Firewood, warm welcome, cleanliness, spectacular overview on the beach, sunlight, services. If you are not looking for a luxury staying but for something awesomely familiar with a touch of 'freedom' come here! Great address!
