A good stay in Jeffreys Bay with some lovely service. Very tough to give full marks due to pool maintenance which was out of our control and the manager's as well, but this was outweighed by the manager's great service. A quirky little room but I enjoyed something a little bit different.

Dolphin View was easy to book - the owner was exceptionally helpful prior to my coming. I asked about mountain biking routes and trails, and she phoned me back later to tell me about a race that weekend, and that their were trails etc. Clearly found out on my behalf. What service! Easy to find, well laid out, clean and... More

WE booked in for an overnight stay at DVGH simply because it was close to where we wanted to be the next day. We wished we could have stayed a few days more. The hostess Anita is jewel, her attention to detail and quality breakfast will have us coming back again. Dr Danny Liebenberg and wife Antoinette

Lovely family run guesthouse. Perfect for kids and all. Lovely views! Each room has its own bathroom and seating area. Breakfast was lovely...they have their own chickens with ever so lovely eggs...;) Highly recommended for anyone wanting to stay in JBay...with or without kids.

The owner is available for assistance and so is the lady which is helping there and she is very friendly. Please keep up the excellent service. The service is client orientated and that is what I really liked.

This Guesthouse has spacious accommodation in a lovely setting with far reaching coastal views. We had the guest suite which provided a large bedroom, lounge, lovely open plan bathroom and large terrace with sea views and the indoor pool was just outside the bedroom door. It was superb.

We got an upgrade when we arrived, since we were the only guests staying there that night. Out room had a great view and in the distance we could see the ocean. The room was spacious, with a really nice shower and a balcony for some suntanning hours. The hostess was really friendly and was service minded but still respected... More

I have enjoyed everything at Jefereysbay. The guest house was one of the highlights. The room is good standard except the bed that might need attention. the breakfast next to the swimming pool was good as well.

Thank you for your nice comment. I am so sorry I didn't know it was a birthday otherwise I could have given you a special birthday muffin with breakfast :-). I am also happy to inform you that the mattress in that room already has been replaced. We hope to see you again. More
