This was a great experience! We had a great time here. The view from our bed was spectacular, a clear an close view over the ocean. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast with nice coffee. Everything is in a perfect condition and very very clean. Wifi good and a nice pool with a view over the ocean....

The setting for this guest house is fantastic. The views over the sea are incredible and Brenton-on-Sea itself is a beautiful, quiet area. The room we stayed in was also very comfortably appointed and just what we needed for a relaxing night away.

Fantastic view from our family villa, all the accommodation facilities were at a quality standard, and loved the sound of the sea at night. Brenton on Sea is in close to Knysna and Wilderness areas. Thanks for a wonderful stay Leon and David!

We visited Brenton early in December. The views are amazing to the ocean. The hosts were very accommodating to us which added to the wonderful experience we had. The almost private beach below was perfect for our holiday.
