This is a really fancy house along the water with spacious lounges and rooms, and a well equipped kitchen. So nice and comfortable, with gorgeous views from almost every window. This is ideal for a family vacation or for a get away with friends. Couldn't be more impressed.

Wow! thank you for your compliments. Yes, this is ideal for a family reunion, especially as each family group can have their own apartment and suite and enjoy their privacy and then the family can unite around the dining table and pool deck. When our daughter married this is exactly what we did and it was most successful. We hope you will visit us again - remember you receive a 10% discount if you book directly with us! Best wishes Jeanette Loring

Wow! Wow! Thank you for your compliments! Yes, we do like to give guests privacy and the fact that most suites/apartments have private entrances is enjoyed. People feel they are at their own private holiday home! We try to make sure everything is perfect for a comfortable stay and we have many guests returning, sometimes staying for a few weeks! Yes, I dont know of any other place that is as close to the sea and has such amazing views of the ocean and mountains. It is so romantic! I hope you will visit us again soon!

Stayed in Seaside Penthouse for final 2 days after 2 week holiday in SA. The views of Gordon’s Bay were fantastic from 2 balconies. Sunsets were great and having breakfast whilst watching a pod of dolphins was an unexpected treat. Braai was good. Comfortable beds with 5 star decor.

So many of our guests come to 185 on BEACH to rest after busy holiday! Some like to first rest after a long flight and then go adventuring. Yes, one of the most delightful aspects here in Gorgeous Gordon's Bay is to laze on the pool deck looking out to sea. Sammy the seal entertains and sometimes dolphins visit. We certainly have found a really special paradise next to the sea. I am SO thrilled you enjoyed your stay and the Seaside Penthouse.

What a beautiful establishment! We loved staying here - from the moment we walked into the hotel, we knew this was going to be a great holiday. The owner, Jeanette, is warm and friendly with a lot of knowledge of Gordon's Bay and the surrounding areas. The staff is very helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. And what a blessing to wake up every morning and see the waves breaking from our balcony whilst having coffee. There is breathtaking views from the communal areas as well. We will definitely recommend this lovely place to our friends and family and return there for another holiday. Yolanda Botha (from Centurion, Gauteng)

The destination for a get away, be it solo or romantic. The breakfast was to die for and a must experience. Awesome views right around, from sunrise to sunset, from sea to beach to mountain views. Really made me feel at home. Thank you once again for a wonderful get away experience. Local is very Lekka!!

Yes, you are right! south Africa offers so many fabulous experiences that one does not have to travel overseas to have a dream holiday. Thank you for your praise and also for painting a picture of the wonderful views we offer. Yes, I love the breakfasts too - especially the delicious and glamorous 'Health Parfait' and of course the freshly baked muffins ... and dining a few meters of the waves breaking is delightful! Wishing you many happy holidays! Best wishes Jeanette Loring
