We felt right at home upon arriving at On the Beach. The views were breathtaking and the service was amazing. All of our needs were looked after from the time that we arrived till the day we left. I would recommend On the Beach over and over again!

Everything was perfect for our time with our grandsons from arrival to leaving. The food was delish and our flat clean and fully kitted. The view and 20m to the sea was super. Lizanne was so helpful,.

The location, the staff and our room were exceptional. We spent two nights in a fabulous room where the views over the beach couldn't be faulted. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and our stay was perfect - I wished we could have stayed longer.

Super position with great views. The rooms are gorgeous, neat and trendy, The breakfast room and bar are a treat. The actual breakfast was delicious. The wifi isn't great though, its a mission to log on and the signal strength wasn't great. Other than that, it really is such a great place to stay.

This B&B is situated on the beach as the name suggests. Beautiful views of the Indian Ocean from our room and the upstairs bar and dining area. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was great with ample variety. We spent only one night but would certainly consider a longer stay on any return visit.

We booked one of the two room apartments which are self catering but breakfast can be purchased at the adjoining guesthouse for a very reasonable price. All guest house facilities can be accessed including sitting areas, games, very well stocked honesty bar, brai area, towels and beach towels. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Complimentary tea and... More
