“Nice warm stay, with helpful hosts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Between surfspot and street with restaurants (both three minutes driving), private terrace in the dunes and swimming pool in garden. Accommodation with many, many decorations in the interior (you love it, or you don't). Simple, but large clean room and large bathroom (we had the one facing the garden). Wifi. Simple, but fine continental breakfast. 24-hour service, hosts wait for you until you're inside at night (comforting thought). Nice dog; she can sing! Very good restaurants nearby (Kitchen Windows and Nina's).

Enjoyed our host and our stay very much. He was generous with his time and informative about the area. Slept extremely well and enjoyed breakfast and then a walk on the beach which is just a few steps away. Would stay again and wished we had more time there.

My family and I recently were welcomed to Stratos Guesthouse by Liezel and Gideon. We had a fantastic time, felt welcome. The rooms are absolutely fantastic and Gideon's and Liezel's decor and memrobilia from their travels are most interresting, enough to keep you talking for hours on end.

The Guesthouse direct access to the beach and lovely garden and pool is so inviting. Watching sunrise in the morning lying on you bed is awsome. Thank you Mr and Mrs Roos for making feel so welcome. Your friends Marius and Family

Room Tip: Anyone, they are all great.

We really enjoyed ourselves. Stratos is located right next to the beach ... we enjoyed stunning sunrises and beach walks, collecting shells and enjoying the local restaurants. Our room was lovely and very reasonably priced. Liezel's warm and friendly hospitality made our stay there feel very homey and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon Suite has gorgeous sea views.

my wife and I stayed at the Stratos as part of our journey towards cape town from Port Elizabeth. unfortunately we only had time for the one night, we both wished we had set a few days aside, both the absorb the gorgeous beach and the fantastic hospitality. Liezel and Gideon are the perfect hosts, friendly, welcoming and always happy to talk, without being invasive. Tasha the dog was also wonderful company!
As soon as Gideon and Liezel discovered it was our honey moon they went out of their was to 'treat' us, even getting us a card and a box of chocolates. Very thoughtful.
Gideon took the time to write us a list of worthwhile places to stop and visit for our further journey which was also very useful. the room was ample in size, clean and comfortable. the layout of the guesthouse meant that we almost felt like we were at home (albeit much more relaxing and less cluttered than our own!!). The house is practically on the beach with a short path from the front leading to the sand. less than 5 minutes walk from the main centre, with restaurants shops etc. great location
if we ever get the chance to visit Jeffreys bay again, the Stratos will be our place to stay without doubt

We stayed one night at Stratos Guesthouse during our South Africa trip.
We arrived early in the day and that was no problem to Liezel who gave us a very warm welcome.
Both Liezel and Gideon were very helpful during our short stay, advising us on restaurants for lunch and dinner.
The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. There was no air conditioning but the supplied fan kept the room cool.
The beach in no more than 30 seconds away and the guesthouse has a lovely viewing point where you can enjoy a drink or try to watch the early morning dolphins.
I would recommend this guesthouse because of its location, good value and excellent hosts

We were a group of five norwegians traveling to JB for a few days in the sun, with no plans where to stay. So when we stumbled upon Stratos Guesthouse we really felt lucky. When we parked outside the house we were welcomed by Gideon who showed us the rooms. Really nice rooms with a sensible price range depending on sea view or not (not that you need a sea view when you are right at the beach!). Smart room solution too if you want to stay there with two families (2 adults + 2 kids fit very nicely in each wing).

The house itself is also very nice, with a beautiful living room at the guests disposal on the second floor. A large balcony accessible from the living room is fronting the beach. A pleasant place to spend the evening with a beer or a glass of red wine :). A good, solid breakfast was served by our lovely hostess Liezel each morning.

Tasha the dog was also a bonus :)!

If you are going to Jeffreys Bay, you do not want to stay in another place then Stratos Guesthouse!

Room Tip: State if you want a view of the sea or not, but as said above there is no need to see the sea from t...
