We just stayed for one night. We booked a Cabin for two persons. Besides the cabin be very nice and well equipped the staff is more than attentive. I did not have time to explore the surroundings. We had a good pizza at the restaurant near the reception.

We stayed in Cottage 14, it had a lovely view from the balcony of the sea and great access to the seafront. Brenton is a little bit further out of the larger town of Kynsna, about a 15 min drive, which meant it was calm and peaceful and no high walls and barbed wire fences, so feeling like it's a... More

I had the most amazing experience at Brenton on Sea with my friends , the stuff were very accommodating and helpful when we struggled to find the place because we arrived late in the evening, after the set check-in time. Keep up the excellent work, I cant wait to visit the place again!

The cottages are located at the end of a bluff, so there is very limited choices for dining (two in the immediate area). Despite good intentions, we could not connect to internet and Chris (very nice maintenance man) repaired our t.v. but we... More

I booked the trip for a honeymoon couple. I did not stay there personally. The couple however enjoyed their stay and appreciated the personal touch that was prepared for them. They said that this is a place they would certainly visit again.

It was my first time to Knysna. The cottage was really clean and nice, and all the essentials required was at my tips. Such a pity our stay was so short but definitely a place I would come back to next time I pass through Knysna.

The cottage was very spacious having 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. A well equipped kitchen very homely feel to the cottage.I loved the setting as it looked out on to the sea and each cottage had its own space so wasn't crowded. We enjoyed the location and walked along the beach to buffalo bay and had a coffee and something... More
