Very comfortable. Well maintained. Nicely kitted out. Great pillows. The entire family was very satisfied. Young and old catered for adequately. Need more channels on dstv. The view is breathtaking. We enjoyed sundowners on the patio.

My husband and I stayed at the Oyster Box for a week with family visiting from overseas. What a wonderful place for a reunion! The view from the house is stunning as the Bushman's River flows into the sea. The house itself is spacious and has all the mod-cons one could wish for - we specially enjoyed the top of...

I don't usually write reviews but as I was perusing TripAdvisor I came across the Oyster Box holiday house at Kenton on Sea where my family and I stayed last June for 8 nights. I was aghast to see negative comments that had no resemblance of our own experience whatsoever. This prompted me to share the experience we had during...

We booked the Oyster Box Beach House on the basis of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. It was intended as a treat at the end of our South Africa holiday and we were therefore prepared to pay more for this accommodation (over 2000ZAR per night) than for almost anywhere else we stayed. We had booked for two nights but...

This is a gem in Kenton. The view over the Bushman's River mouth is unbeatable. The facilities are new, upmarket and clean. Breakfast was excellent and service outstanding. Safe parking in lockup garage is available. Absolute pocket of excellence in tired town.

This is my second time at Oyster Box in the last 5 years and I am once again highly impressed. The owner has thought of every single thing that one would need from a beach house, even items which are luxuries as opposed to necessities. We rented the whole house with my in laws and were continuously raving about this...

We stayed at The Oyster Box beach house as a family and rented the space out for a week. The home is beautifully decorated with all the amenities needed. We stayed "out of season" with the weather not being hot, but rainy. I would suggest travels stay in season when it is sunny, as the home can get very cold...

The house was built for luxury. The staff are exceptional in making you feel at home and cleaning the property. Breath-taking views. Private beaches nearby with rock pools and caves to entertain the little ones. Fire pit for chilly evenings and enclosed additional braai area for windy nights. Absolutely every weather condition has been catered for. A definite must for...
