Sea Whisper was a great B&B for me on my recent stay in Jeffreys Bay. I was in town on business and the accommodation offered all the necessities and more that I needed and was very comfortable. The B&B is accessible to all areas of the town, with nowhere more than a few minutes away. Finding a B&B with Wifi... 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.

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

The view is amazing, we were even lucky to spot some dolphins while having a Oh-So-Yummy breakfast. The homemade granola were by far the best I Ever had. When we told Mimi that we... 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...

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.
