My boyfriend I stayed at the Brenton Beach House for two nights while exploring the Garden Route drive. We booked our stay last minute on hotels.com and the owner was very welcoming despite our late arrival. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The owner was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and recommended two great restaurants nearby and...

Slightly disappointed to find that the Beach House is not on the beach but that is the only real negative. We enjoyed 2 nights here in November 2014. Rooms large and well furnished and spotlessly clean if a little tired. Breakfasts were lovely and we enjoyed the lounge each evening with it's honesty bar. Derrick, the owner is an excellent...

wasnt there long and arrived in late afternoon. Lovely place, friendly owners, breakfast good, stunning views. Great place for a stop over or to be used as a base to explore the surrounding areas. Ideally suited for couples, not much to do if you have little kiddies with (which is in my case)

I enjoyed four nights at Brentons Beach house. Altogether it was the longest time within my 14-days journey to South Africa, because here I felt the most comfortable. The house is near to the sea, with a beautiful beach and Derrick the owner, is a very helpful and friendley man with a lot of knowledge about what one can do...

The view from the property (if you have a ocean view room, or if not, when you come out of your room) is to die for. It makes you go - "This is where I want to retire". It is a bit away from Knysna town, but you don't miss it since it is a small town. Derek, the owner,...

Fantastic place with an excellent host. The house is very beautiful and very comfortable. Every thing you need you have. The view is amazing and it is a very calm place. I went with my wife and son and Derrick made us feel like we were at home and his suggestions were great, restaurants and things to do. The breakfast...

Property is great - clean, charming but modern, bright and airy. Great spot near the beach, and Derrick is very easy-going and helpful - he let us borrow his clubs and was even very understanding when our friends changed their plans and we had to leave a day early. Honestly could not have been a better spot or time. Only...

We stayed in a large comfortable room with a lovely large bathroom with a tub and shower. The views into the garden with the pool were very nice. The location is very good and quiet and the beach is fantastic for long walks. We were greeted by some buck on the street!

The building is a lovely weatherboard and had a wonderful relaxing ambiance. It is across the road from a cliff overlooking the sea and encloses a peaceful garden. Our hostess was very welcoming and helpful with information. A nice breakfast is served in the sunlit front room with timber flooring and pleasant atmosphere. It is a few kms from Knysna...

If you like to hear the ocean from your beautiful and spotlessly clean room, if you like views to die for, if you like amazing beaches, coastal walks, great restaurants nearby, golf, fishing, horse riding, canoeing, seeing animals in their natural environment and being looked after by the best host ever, look no further, don't even consider anywhere else in...
