We booked one of the two room apartments which are self catering but breakfast can be purchased at the adjoining guesthouse for a very reasonable price. All guest house facilities can be accessed including sitting areas, games, very well stocked honesty bar, brai area, towels and beach towels.

The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Complimentary tea and coffee was provided. It was extremely comfortable with fabulous views from the living room and balcony. There is a lot of sitting space just to chill. The bathroom was an excellent size with an over abundance of towels and nice toiletries.

Get up and watch the sunrise! See dolphins from the breakfast area.

Despite the fact we arrived much later than advertised check in through a series of delays we were very warmly welcomed. A restaurant was recommended, booking made and a taxi arranged. A late check out was also facilitated without fuss.

The location is right on the beach as the name suggest and this is not a misdescription. A lovely 20 minute stroll to the shops and main centre.
Only minor quibble for an apartment so well laid out - no plug for hair dryer by the mirror in main bedroom.

Would go again.

Room Tip: If booking an apartment try and get the one with two bathrooms but both lovely

We stayed here one night with my extends family of 7 on the way to Cape Town. RIGHT on the beach, beautiful views from the upstairs dining/sitting area; fabulous to order breakfast; comfortable rooms with very upgraded bath/toilet areas; highly recommend. Very reasonable for on the beach accommodations, clean and beautiful. Only wish we'd been there more nights.

This is a guesthouse worth while staying again and again, the room is great and the service from the management excellent. The view is outstanding and I would recommend this to anyone. The proximity to the beach is most awesome.

I found this Guest House excellent. Very professional, excellent location and very, very clean and well equipped room. I will definitely stay over here during my next business trip and if I ever require accommodation in Jeffreys Bay.

This place really is everything that many people dream of. It's done out in fantastically relaxing white decor, has luxurious room suites and the view out across the Indian Ocean is beyond compare.

The only reason I have not given this establishments an "Excellent" rating is that they declined to refund the first night that I had booked there, but did not spend there, due to my flight from England being delayed by 18 hours.

Apart from that, though, this is a delightful place to stay and I would definitely stay here again! :)
