Had a wonderful stay and definitly value for money (stayed 8 nights). Must also compliment the cleanliness as every corner gets cleaned daily. Very friendly and excellent service by owners and their staff. Would certainly recommend this guesthouse and would also return should I go to the South Coast again. Very well located with beautiful seaviews.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Beachcomber Bay. The staff were friendly and our host most pleasant. Breakfast just right. Wonderful view, we were in the "penthouse". Very quiet and relaxing. We stayed from Saturday until Monday.

Absolutely an amazing place to come to, will definitely be going again. Service was great. Room 6 definitely well worth it. My girlfriend and i had an awesome time there, and the view was amazing. Lots of whale activity, made it extra special.

Rooms: AMAZING! I stayed in Room 5 & Room 6 and it is the most comfortable place to stay. The ceilings are high, the sheets are fresh, and the place is quite. The view is just incredibly to boot too! I was literally in South Africa Heaven. I loved the path to the beach. The path to the beach was... More

It was a trip that was not planned as I had to take my car for repairs. Due to its nature I was required to stay over in Margate. The Dealership assisted me in making booking in this establishment. I must be honest I don't regret this decision. The owners and their dog were pleasant and welcoming. I must add... More

Thank you for your review, if you return to Beachcomber Bay one day please don't worry about the security beams. We manage them in terms of when we switch them on, generally when all the guests are back at the house and if you should break one it is not a problem. You can happily walk down and/or smoke on...

Ramsgate is 1,5 hrs away from Durban. Beachcomber bay is located between Margate and Ramsgate. To go out for dinner, you need your car. only a italian restaurant iand liquid shop in walking distance. We stay in the penthouse with really nice view to the ocean.

Great sea view! We saw a lot of dolphins and whales jumping. This was a first for us and a great experience! The breakfast was also lovely and it was nice to come back to a clean room after a day at the sea.

Lovely location and very peaceful. View is spectacular. Service is top notch and the owners friendly and accommodating. The room cleaning staff were very good and the rooms spotless. I especially liked that you had a fridge, coffee and tea, so were not always having to head out for food, other than the lovely breakfast they provide. I will definitely... More

Along with my wife, young son and parents we booked into Beachcomber Bay not really having a clue what to expect. Upon arrival, we were surprised by the awesome views and accessibility to the beach. Our room at the top was very spacious and very clean. The next day we asked to stay an extra night. The breakfasts were lovely... More
