A1 Bay View was our home for Christmas 2016. It is a lovely setting for a family holiday - large rooms and lounge areas - but the indoor braai and pool were definitely our favourite spots. The house, especially the kitchen, has everything you need. The views are spectacular and the hosts, Sharon and Paul, went out of their way...

Overall the place was perfect for our two families traveling together. There were two big lounges so everyone had their space to chill. Everything you needed was there! We enjoyed walking to the beach. Was great to have the place cleaned everyday. My only comment was there was too much "decor", hardly had space to have my own things out.

We didn't use the pool as it was rather cool, but all other facilities were great. Sharon served us a...

We stayed at Bay View recently, and what a pleasure! Very comfortable and clean. The views over the bay are awesome. Was able to rest and relax and spend time with my family.

Paul & Sharon make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. I just could not get enough of the view, & could probably chill on their balcony forever.
