We must say that we were a litle bit disappointed when we compare this B&B to other B&B´s we have visited. Our room was lovely with wonderful sea views but hot like a sauna without AC or ceiling fans. We did not feel that the atmosphere was very friendly or helpful rather "not interested". Breakfast was good. Due to special... More

Hi Bo So sorry you were disappointed with Room 6 our penthouse. I realise it is very hot in February, but usually open windows and the fan (in the cupboard were the fridge is) suffices in bringing down the temperature and creating a breeze. I am also sorry that there was a problem with either your card or with our... More

I stayed at Beachcomber bay for a 10 days of diving the protea banks and wanted a nice and spacious place to spend my afternoons after a tiring day's diving and beachcomber bay was perfect! HUGE rooms, fantastic location, friendly owner and overall amazing value for money!

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.

The situation and views were excellent-we enjoyed our sea views from room 5 and its super patio.. Breakfasts were of very high standard and both owners and staff were kind and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.
