On the Beach really is a lovely place. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The only thing that bothered me, was that the room was small and warm; other than that, it was pretty and clean. The place has stunning views and a lovely lounge/restaurant area. Breakfast was good. On the Beach is also central to all amenities in...

We stayed at On The Beach for just 1 night. The B&B is directly on the beach which is very beautiful you can see the whole of the beach and very easy to go for nice long walks. Really good location and when the weather is sunny it is a really lovely view. Jeffrey's Bay was nice but quite quiet...

Wow,what a wonderful stay we had there. When we arrived we had a great reception and were welcomed at the guesthouse. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our anniversary and what a beautiful room. There is ocean view all around. The breakfast was great and we truly received wonderful service. It is a home away from home and we...

This guest house is in a prime position just on the edge of the lovely beach at Jeffreys Bay. It is a bit pricier than many of the guest houses we have used in the last 5 weeks but the location cannot be faulted. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our time here. Breakfast in the first storey dining room...

Somehow I mixed up the booking and booked a double room for one person! There was two of us.... so this was fixed by charging me an additional 2/3 for my husband on arrival - which was a little steep considering we weren't staying for breakfast and they couldn't upgrade the room so we ended up in a very small...

This B&B is situated directly on the beach at Jeffreys Bay. We were in room 3 which had a little veranda (not private) which overlooked the beach. There was direct access (a few steps) on to the beach. On the Beach Guesthouse could be great but it just lacked "the final touches". The entrance needs to be improved. On arrival...

Dear Kasler Thank you so much for your review and tips on making On the Beach the best. My apologies for not having your registration form ready.

We got in very late and only stayed for one night, so unfortunately we did not get to make the most of this cute place, but from what we experienced it was perfect. We had an ocean view family suite, it was clean and comfortable. The service we received was great and we even got late check out which was...

This was my third stay at this guesthouse and I would come here many more times, I absolutely love it! It literary is "on the beach", with spectacular views of the ocean. The rooms are stunning (except for the downstairs non-sea facing standard rooms, they're not too great), the staff super friendly, and the breakfast scrumptious! I love it so...

Although Jeffreys Bay is one of our favourite getaway destinations, this was our first visit to On the Beach. What a wonderful discovery! From luxurious comfort, to excellent service, exquisite breakfasts and breathtaking views, we lacked for nothing. They stayed true to their intention of wanting guests to feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On The Beach Boutique Guesthouse and Suites in Jeffreys Bay offers a relaxed and refined atmosphere in which to enjoy the spectacular setting right on the beach. The classic design, elegant décor and harmonious ambience, combined with incredible views from most rooms, as well as the upstairs lounge, bar and outdoor verandahs, relaxes and rejuvenates and is ideal for business, pleasure - or both. We offer free use of our beach chairs, -umbrellas and -towels to our guests. Experience the magic of a sundowner barbeque right on the edge of the beach ... Braai/barbecue facilities and picnic tables are available in front of the guesthouse, either on the front lawn in the sculpted, indiginous garden leading down to the beach or on the sand lower down - obviously all with great views! The braai room is fully equipped with Weber braai's, tongs, cutlery, crockery and glasses to be used on wooden picnic tables outside. Perfectly located just 50 minutes from the Port Elizabeth International Airport. The accommodation features a Penthouse Room, 2 Deluxe Rooms, 2 Superior Rooms, a Luxury Room, a Standard Room and 2 Two-bedroom Suites. Most Units have direct beach access and breathtaking beach and ocean views. Reveling in the splendor of its location, the upstairs lounges, bar, dining area and balcony is a celebration of the magnificent backdrop of the Indian Ocean which makes for a picture perfect setting. The soothing sound of the rolling waves soon becomes a constant reminder of exactly where one has come to unwind and rejuvenate. Watch dolphins and surfers share the same waves and experience luxury in harmony with nature. Allow us to share our warm hospitality and world class service. ... more   less
