Lovely spot well located for visiting surrounding area and walking along the beautiful local beach. Room great, nice fresh linen and everything that you would need including a clothes washing service. Breakfast very good and especially try Derrick's home cooked bread. He couldn't be more helpful and gave pointers for good places to eat or visit. Would be happy to...

Although we had quite rainy days we enjoyed our stay at the Brenton Beach House. The room was spacious (and had a heater which we needed due to the weather) and the beach is beautiful. Lovely breakfast (french omelette :-)) and a caring host who gave us some good advice concerning acitivities and places to see. Thank you Mister D.!

Small and very personal guesthouse, with good service, nice rooms, near the sea. Remember to ask for a room with sea view, if possible. But you will be fine with one of the rooms facing to the backyard as well. It is a good idea to book in advance, as the owner tell us that this place is often fully...

After booking online for the wrong dates Derek sorted us out without any hassles. We got 2 rooms, both of which were very large, well appointed and very comfy. They had a small kitchenette and large bathroom, Easy access onto Brenton beach, Lake Brenton and into Knysna. Owner is a really nice guy, very friendly and accommodating. Only downside was...

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.

Well we arrived after a five hour drive from Hermanus in the pouring rain by Derrick who showed us to our wonderful room and assured us we would wake up to sunshine.

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.
