Derick the host was really great, welcoming, friendly and full of local knowledge. Guesthouse is great location for the beach, we stayed in the lavender room, large, bright, comfortable, small kitchenette area had everything you could possibly need.. we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here and would return.

We based ourselves here to explore the Brenton/Knysna/Plettenburg/Craggs areas and it was a great choice. The room was spotless, bright and very beach house like. The view towards the ocean from the honeymoon suite was stunning. Derrick was a great host. I cannot fault this place. We hope to book again!

This Beach House had been recommended to us by friends, who had stayed on two previous occasions. The location was ideal with spectacular views over the sea. The rooms were spacious clean and bright, and the service very good. The owner Derrick could not have been more helpful. When we had a puncture in our rented car, he even changed...

Nice owner, Nice rooms and good place. The owner was very nice to us and we had a great stay. The house is near the beach and in good condition. The breakfast was very good with fruits and eggs of your choice.

Derek, the owner, is a lovely man who is so friendly and easy to get on with. He was very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay here in Brenton on Sea. We had originally thought that we were nearer the beach rather than higher up the hill but the path down was quite easy to negotiate, or, you can drive...

It took a bit of finding, but it was worth it. Our room was beautiful, looked in to the garden with small pool, a balcony along its length. Very well appointed. Breakfast is wonderful, personally cooked by mine host, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely recommend this place, only 10 mins into Knysna, two good restaurants nearby, a lovely beach...

Warm welcome from host Derrick. Excellent breakfasts with best omlettes. Spacious and clean rooms. Great walk to Buffels Bay on beach. A very comfortable experience and away from the crowds of Knysna.

Brenton on sea is a very small village with just two restaurants but an extraordinary beach. Derrick, the owner of the Beach house welcomed us and we felt at home from the first moment. The house has 5 rooms only, so it's a very quiet place. We enjoyed the silence and the hospitality of Derrick and his staff. The boss...

We spent a very enjoyable 8 nights at Brenton Beach House. Our en-suite room was spacious, had a balcony, overlooked the pool, and the fridge and microwave were very useful if we did not want to eat out. Derrick, the owner is friendly, helpful and a mine of information. He made us feel very much at home. The buffet breakfast...
