Dear Derrick, thanks for the wonderfull time at your Beach House. Your private made breakfast was perfect, the location of your house, so close to the beach, also. The family appartment was OK, but next time we will book the wonderfull upstairs rooms.

Derrick was a wonderful host. Gave us great advice on the local community, and where to eat. Unfortunately, we had only had one night , so were not able to really explore the area, but it was a safe community, and very relaxing.

The guesthouse is really perfectly mananged and maintained, the room was excellent, huge, has a big bathroom, even DVD player and the owner is very nice. The location is great as well but the house has only one room with sea view. If the view is not important for you and you don't mind a drive to Knysna this will...

While we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. There is only one ocean view suite and regret that. The architecture of the building is such and we cannot do much about it. There are no less than 5 good restaurants close by without having to travel to Knysna. Thank you for your comments.

We spent a night at Brenton Beach House.Our room was see facing with all the beautiful view of the garden and tranquil area surrounding the house. The veranda surrounded the room and it was spacious and beautiful to sit out there and relax, listening to the birds singing. The room had everything the savvy traveler would appreciate-self catering facilities,spacious bathroom...

We had the best room with ocean view. The place is very tidy, the breakfast is excellent and the service provided by Derrick is outstanding and very friendly. We really enjoyed our staying there. The only negative comment is regarding the choices of restaurant nearby, although what exist is of very good standard.

Joan was a lovely host and we really enjoyed our stay at this great place. The room was large and suited our family perfectly. The location is just near the sea and it was easy to go there to enjoy a beautiful unspoilt beach.

We really enjoyed the warmth and hospitality. Derrick was very helpful in guidance and assistance with activities and of course his omelettes are the best. The rooms were well appointed and excellently maintained.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Derrick is a wonderful host. Totally recommend it for a long,short term stay. It's close to the beach and a quick drive to waterfront. The best part is the breakfast which is super tasty.
