We stayed here over a wedding weekend at rather short notice! We stayed in the Penthouse room which was amazing, big comfy bed, huge bath, double shower and vanity, amazing panoramic ocean views! We loved the fact that it felt like a home away from home, and you don't have that B&B feeling where you feel like you are staying... More

My wife and two daughters, on a "fly in, fly out" weekend getaway, spent a Saturday night here. The location is right on the beach, with on-site parking. When viewed from outside, it is clear that the architect was not in that an inspired mood when deigning the building, but on this occasion the outside appearance is deceiving. Check in... More

The position of the guest house is perfect, right on the beach. Checking in was a little problematic as the host was a bit preoccupied with checking in the guest before me. The room was as in the picture charming and comfortable with doors opening onto the patio overlooking the beach. Only problem i experienced was the lack of water... More

we were a little disappointed in the accommodation. although it had everything we needed, the room was overcrowded with decorative items and needed a good clean. service for breakfast was very slow. the staff were very friendly but we felt a lack of management.

We stayed here two nights driving from Pt Elizabeth to Knysa and loved it. One the best breakfast I have had in any lodging I must say. The room is great, a suite, with a nice bathtub the wife enjoyed while you could see the ocean with a nice breeze. The staff here is super kind, the manager, I forget... More

A warm welcome, and lovely beach-view room. Very helpful when we left passports in the room safe. They got a taxi to take it to the airport for us. failing that, they were going to come themselves! Good location for surfers.

Dear Neil R H, It was a pleasure hosting you and we were happy to be of help with the passports; it is a harrowing situation to be stranded without one's documents in another country! Kind regards, Rhelda @ On the Beach Guesthouse More

a great welcome and tour of the property.the room was first floor good private views, and very comfortable . The whole atmosphere is politely laid back and nothing too much trouble . A extremely good restaurant was recommended , which was fabulous, and it provided ataxi both ways. A definite stop over again .

We stayed at On The Beach last April and had a fantastic time. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was clean comfortable and well equipped. Our bedroom had sea views and waking up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise with the sound of the sea was amazing. The house itself has a lovely quirky but homely feel... More
