Only stayed here for one night when in transit from the airport to Plettenberg. We arrived mid afternoon and everything was ready. Had a good chat with the owners, Stephanie and Clifford who are lovely people. They recommended a couple of places to eat which was nice. We decided on Charlie's nearby which was more informal than some and just... More

There is always helpful advice if requested, we really can't... More

Bayside is a very beautiful Guesthouse, with a 5***** service ! :) The property, located in the quiet neighborhood of Summerstrand, is pretty close to both the beach and Marine Drive (many restaurants are here). Stephanie is a perfect and nice host, ready to give suggestions about what to do/where to go and, in general, always available to help you.... More

We gladly recommend this B&B: very good location only two streets from beach in high-class neighborhood. Very friendly hosts, great breakfast. We shared two rooms as a family of four with connecting doors that were lovely furnished. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Close to shopping-mall and restaurants only minutes away by car.

Bayside has no downside. Perfect Location by the water, restaurants, and long walks along the beach or boardwalk. The comfort, cleanliness, privacy, breakfast spread and pool can not be surpassed! HERE IS THE BEST PART, THE OWNERS, STEPHANIE AND CLIFF!!!! They care about you as if you are family living together. Very special!!! You Must experience this in PE!

Very clean, quiet, friendly and easy to get to. There were 3 of us over the ironman weekend. We had 3 double rooms. Great location, easy to find from the airport and 5 min car drive or 20 min walk to the start of the race.

The Bayside guesthouse was a friendly family place. The rooms are prettily decorated and the bed was comfortable with crisp white linen. Better for family trips than business I think. Quite a bit of noise outside the room from the family and other guests
