Very nice owner, great location and breakfast! Very close to the beach and to a number of nice restaurants! Rooms are very clean and the highlight is the very nice breakfast they serve in the morning.

Nice but it look like it is from 1980. Good location. Friendly. Close or one the beach, nice. One road is close but the traffic is okay. Nothing else to say, okey for the money. The rooms on the second floor is mutch smaller without kitchen.

Bathroom never cleaned. Hair from previous guest present in bathroom throughout my stay. Leaking toilet never mopped throughout my stay. Room never vacuumed once. Evidence of paper on the floor from when we arrived. Linen not changed throughout four nights. Room and bathroom never smelt fresh throughout.

What a wonderful time I had! Maryanne is a gracious hostess and she made sure that we were as comfortable as possible and spoiled us with her lovely breakfasts and tea at night. I would really recommend this guest house!

I was received very friendly. The guesthouse is welcoming, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. I would certainly go back there again. There should however be local TV Channels available such as SABC2 and 3 so that one can see local news and series.

My husband and i enjoyed staying at The Beach house and we are planning our 2nd visit to the guest house. It was neat, the breakfast was delicious. Maryann was super friendly and talkative and she made us feel at home.

I was freezing the first night. Could find no staff or extra blankets. The safe needed new batteries - Chinese guy sat in front of the tv all day - changed rooms and there was a huge dead cockroach and unclean sheets. Supposed to stay for three nights - left after the first night
