After reading the reviews, I had to see for myself! From the moment I contacted the friendly staff who really went out of their way to accommodate us to the immaculate cleanliness of the unit with crisp linnen, I was very impressed. We booked online as a travel package and to say the least, we got far more than we... More

The beach was one of the most amazing beaches I'd ever been to and we loved the restaurant on the beach. The resort was lovely, we were not happy with the standard of cleanliness though. The tea towels were smelly and looked like they had not been washed in weeks. We had dirt in the bathroom bin and the linen... More

This resort is fantastic, clean, has everything you could possible need, the staff incredibly accommodating. Our room was quiet and per request to the staff - sitated in a very peaceful area of the resort.

We stayed at Shearwater on Sea for just under a week. The location is great as it's close to the beach - which is one of the most outstanding beaches I've ever seen. The beach bar is great too. The accommodation itself was great, all you could need. However, we had to wait for someone to arrive at reception, we... More

what lovely place! Just a pity it is not inspected by management on a daily basis after daily service has been done. I had to ask the cleaners daily to clean certain areas. They just clean on the surface where noticeable. Also had no bath. I had to sweep the deck myself every day. The braai was cleaned ... but... More

I cannot fault Shearwater on Sea as a resort. It is more than adequate facility wise and in the units, has a lovely pool and kids playground area, is located 100m's or so from Plipli (an awesome beach pub & restaurant) & 100m's away from Myoli beach which can only be described as outstanding. However I was very disappointed with... More

We are so thankful that we found this little treasure in Sedgefield. All the other timeshare places are situated at the lakes, resulting in quite a drive to get to the beach. But Shearwater on Sea is approximately 100 metres from Myoli beach. (And what a beach!!!). What an absolute pleasure to have stayed here. We had a view of... More

What a lovely place & although we thought it was literally straight on to the beach but wasn't it really didn't disappoint. Within easy walking distance of the beach & (although a shock to the system & much doubt of eating there at first sight) of a place we could eat good food.We wouldn't have known about you if it...

Stayed at Shearwater on Sea on a long weekend beach break and was fortunate enough to be assigned a 1st floor unit looking towards the beach. Views from the balcony were quite good and was only trumped by the sunsets to be seen from the dunes at the beach. This is a great base to enjoy Sedgefield beach as it... More
