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

We stayed here one night with my extends family of 7 on the way to Cape Town. RIGHT on the beach, beautiful views from the upstairs dining/sitting area; fabulous to order breakfast; comfortable rooms with very upgraded bath/toilet areas; highly recommend. Very reasonable for on the beach accommodations, clean and beautiful. Only wish we'd been there more nights.

This is a guesthouse worth while staying again and again, the room is great and the service from the management excellent. The view is outstanding and I would recommend this to anyone. The proximity to the beach is most awesome.

I found this Guest House excellent. Very professional, excellent location and very, very clean and well equipped room. I will definitely stay over here during my next business trip and if I ever require accommodation in Jeffreys Bay.

This place really is everything that many people dream of. It's done out in fantastically relaxing white decor, has luxurious room suites and the view out across the Indian Ocean is beyond compare. The only reason I have not given this establishments an "Excellent" rating is that they declined to refund the first night that I had booked there, but... More

On the Beach is a lovely bed and breakfast literally on the beach. The room was stunning and huge. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great we even had a view of dolphins surfing in on the waves. Would stay again.
