We recently went to Jeffreys Bay and booked in at Sea Whisper. Units spacious with lovely furniture and finishings, clean and cosy. Serviced daily with friendly staff, manager and owners at hand. Situated a five minute drive to "Dolphin" Main beach. Groceries stores and big Mall not far away. Breakfast served daily was lovely and something to look forward to.... More

Sea Whisper is a little above the other places we have stayed in, in the area. As returning guests it remains our first choice, the self catering "houses" are spacious and airy, the winter sun streaming in and the gracious company of the resident cat August Moon. Many happy memories already from this gem on the hill.

I remember when your group first came to stay at Sea Whisper and it is always a wonderful feeling to welcome back (no I am not going to say "old faces") young faces. It was lovely to see you again and am so glad that we could deliver the same kind of stay in Beach Cottage that you experienced last... More

We stayed here in January 2014 for one night. The owners were very helpful and gave us a good introduction to Jeffreys bay. They also let us check in early, we arrived around 12 o'clock. The room was big and clean, the bathroom was nice and the breakfast was wonderful. This was our first time in a b&b and we... More

Glad we were able to make your first experience at a Bed and Breakfast such a good one. When we receive reviews I do read them carefully as I feel that if guests cover most aspects of their stay such as room, bathroom, breakfast, hospitality, it does help us to keep on top of our game. It was a pleasure... More

Mimi is simply the most genuine and kind host I've met at a B & B, and she remained so right from the telephonic booking to our departure. And soon after our arrival after a long day of driving, she suggested eating at an excellent restaurant, Kitchen Windows, that even had a complimentary taxi service! What a wonderful help! We...

So glad that you enjoyed your stay at Sea Whisper. One of the "top of the list" requirements that we find is that our guests enjoy a comfortable bed and a good nights sleep, so this is great to hear.

We stayed for two weeks in February in the large apartment (Sea Echo) with our two grown-up children. Accommodation was bright and airy. It was kept immaculately clean by the cheerful staff. The owners Michelle and Darvin, were always on hand for advice and suggestions. They took us to a unique restaurant and emporium - Le Chameleon in nearby Humansdorp.... More
