We had a great stay at Air del Mar. The house and rooms are beautifully decorated with great views of the ocean. The breakfasts were delicious with great attention to detail. Susan & Fred are very welcoming and happy to make restaurant/transport reservations. Would love to go back one day.

We stayed just one night, but will be back. The place is beautiful, clean and the owners very friendly. What an ambiance. The breakfast was very tastefully done. Everything needed was in the room, not to mention the beautiful crystal glasses with the complimentary sherry. The establishment is right on the beach with breathtaking views!

We knew from the reviews that Air del Mar would be wonderful but these accommodations took our breath away. Walking through the house was almost a religious experience with each room more stunning than the last. Magnificent views of the sea and we fell asleep to the splashing of the waves. The artistry in the presentation of the breakfast was...

A family with teenagers we took two double rooms upstairs in the main guest house. The host and owner, Susan, was of great help in advising us on dinner options in town, and even booked a great table for us at The Gannett. The house itself was like flipping throughout he pages of a home decor magazine - stylish and...

What a beautiful house in an amazing spot Air del Mar is. Really stunning décor, and the house is right on the beach - the sound of the ocean just a few feet away as you go to sleep is special. Hostess Susan is lovely - warm, welcoming, helpful. Breakfast was amazing - again, it looked like something styled for...

We stayed 2 nights at this beautiful place while visiting Mossel Bay. It has easy access to the beach and it is absolutely beautiful. While there we were the only guests, so our stay was very peaceful but I don`t see it being any different even if there are more people at the B&B, as the number of rooms is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come and experience why people say this is paradise in every sense of the word. Everyone who stays at Air del Mar falls in love with its spectacular, unspoiled natural beauty and harmonious, safe and tranquil lifestyle. Owned and managed by Fred & Susan Bezuidenhout for the past 10 years. The bay becomes South Africa's whale nursery between May and November, when the Southern Right whales arrive to mate and calve. Air del Mar offers its guests the opportunity to walk, swim or laze in safety on endless beaches just a few steps away. We are situated right next to the ocean with private stairs down onto the beach. Let the waves lull you to sleep at night. ... more   less
