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...

Derrick C, Owner at Brenton Beach House, responded to this review

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.

We have a wonder stay at Brenton on the Sea with Derrick. The location is wonderful with great access to some magnificent beaches. Derrick is a wealth of knowledge about the area and an amazing chef. His omelets and fresh French bread are of particular note.

This is the second time I have stayed in this Beach House and it did not disappoint. Derrick is a wonderful host and has excellent suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. The home cooked breakfast is a great start to the day, especially the bread! Brenton-on-sea is a great location for access to Knysna...

This is a family run guest house and is an absolute gem. Derrik could not do enough to help and was an expert on the area and what to see and do. His restaurant recommendations were as good as his guest house. A healthy breakfast was included in the price. We stayed for 3 nights while doing the Garden Route,...

Beautiful place on top of a cliff with a great view of the ocean. The rooms have a lovely atmosphere and it feels like they have thought about every single detail to make this place a wonderful guesthouse. The selection for breakfast is good and Derrick the owner is a good host, he lived in France for a long time...
