The Oyster Box is a premium property set on the hill overlooking the Lagoon and sea in the quiet village of Kenton-On-Sea. For self caterers, there is nothing that you will lack in the well appointed kitchen. The property is very well maintained and superbly appointed throughout with good quality furnishings and fittings. The rooms were cleaned to perfection. The...

We rented this house for about 3 weeks in March/ April 2017 while attending a family wedding. We loved the house. It has no view, unlike the Oyster Box nearby, but the garden is secluded by trees at the front and there is a large very private patio area at the rear with braai facilities. The house is very well...

It's always a disappointment to be unable to book Oyster box. However The Boatshed was just as magical. Very close to middle beach, 'town' and bushman river mouth. It felt like a more real experience of Kenton. Thanks Louise and team!

Hi, The Beach House was booked so we two couples opted for the little brother, the Oyster Shack, just across the road but lacking the view. We were not disappointed. The Shack is a lovely property, with a small plunge pool and a very private garden. Inside, it's just fantastic. Lots of space, a great open plan kitchen, massive bedrooms...

This review is long overdue. What a beautiful house! Wish it was mine! The decor, the outside area, the short walk to the beach... everything was perfect. We also enjoyed the town itself. Sarah was a great host and took care of everything. Kids loved the breakfast and it was nice to share the table with the other guests. Gave...

We had a fantastic stay at the oyster box beach house. We came to relax, unwind and getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big cities and this place did exactly that. We felt rehabilitated and restored in body, mind and spirit. The house was exactly as shown in the photographs. We spent some days cooped up in the...

What a wonderful long weekend we have just enjoyed in Kenton-on-sea at The Oyster Box Beach House. The photos on the website are amazing but nothing can do justice to the experience in real life. This has to rank as one of my favourite places in South Africa. The views from the house itself are spectacular and we watched some...

An absolute treat to stay in the most luxurious house with the most magnificent view in Kenton. It has great accommodation - all rooms are spacious and are beautifully decorated . The open plan living space opens out onto a lovely outdoor patio and pool with the view. The kitchen is beautifully equipped for your every need. It's very difficult...

This place is simply amazing. The house and individual suites are fantastic. Beautifully furnished with every detail thought of. The breakfasts were lovely and Sarah and other staff spared no effort to make our stay really memorable. The location of the Beach house and views are really exceptional and I couldn't stop looking out over the river mouth to see...
