Was travelling to the Ado Elephant Park on the Sunday and was no problem to provide a cooler box for me. The braai (barbecue) and swimming pool area is amazing and they provide everything... More

I have been coming to Bayside Guest House on business for almost 5 years now and I love it. I always feel welcome and pretty much apart of the family. Good secure parking. Stay here! You will not regret it!

Beautiful place with a perfect location close to the beach and all amenities. Very friendly hosts with clean and well laid out rooms. Great breakfast and in summertime the pool area would be spectacular.

Nice clean rooms that are decent in size. Friendly people and in a quiet part of town. Not too far from the beach and the restaurants. They have WiFi and a lovely garden. Quite relaxing. Secure parking is available.
