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.

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.

Expectations were high for this hotel, sadly they did not totally deliver. Firstly the positives, a wonderful location with superb views, large comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. When we checked in, the receptionist insisted we pay the remaining balance of our bill before showing us the room, this might be their policy, but they were the only hotel out... More

I stayed in the GuestHouse for 2 nights in April 2014; The stay was excellent and we loved the place; The only down-side was that we thought the breakfast was too expensive, considering the overall prices for food we found in the city. Other than that: amazing place that we highly recommend! The location is RIGHT ON BEACH literally, but... More

On the Beach Guesthouse provides a luxurious atmosphere in which to relax and rejuvenate. Located only 50 minutes away from the Port Elizabeth International Airport on the sun-drenched shores of the beautiful Eastern Cape, On the Beach Guesthouse’s sculpted gardens, winding down to the beach, provide an oasis of space and tranquility in the heart of South Africa’s world famous surfing paradise. The accommodation features 6 Superior Ocean Suites and 2 Classic Standard rooms in the guesthouse that invites you to immerse yourself in the comfort of one of the world's most vibrant cultures. The Superior Ocean Suites are also designed with comfort and elegance in mind with understated decor and bathrooms boasting contemporary amenities. Most Suites have direct beach access and breathtaking ocean views. Superior Ocean Suites are equipped with air conditioning or under-floor heating, flat-screen LCD TV with DSTV, hairdryer, electronic safe, hospitality tray as well as Internet access. The 2 perfectly appointed apartments are ideal for families who want to spend their vacation right on the beach with spectacular views, the recently renovated apartments with two spacious bedrooms, separate dining and living room, replete with amenities, including a LCD TV, and a fully equipped kitchen. Exclusive with its own private entrance, the whole family will love the breezy lounge overlooking the Magna Tubes and Secrets surf breaks. Revelling in the splendour of its location, the upstairs lounges, bar, dining area and balcony is a celebration of the magnificent backdrop of the Indian Ocean which makes for a picture perfect setting. The soothing sound of the rolling waves soon becomes a constant reminder of exactly where one has come to unwind and rejuvenate. Watch dolphins and surfers share the same waves and experience luxury in harmony with nature. Enjoy a traditional South African braai on the beach or in our beautifully manicured indigenous gardens.
