I recently stayed in the newly built wheelchair friendly chalet with my friend. The rooms were great and the wheelchair friendly bathroom was exactly what my friend needed and more. Highly recommend to anybody who is looking for a wheelchair friendly room with a incredible view to wake up to every morning:)

The cottage is luxurious. Everything is brand new. View is amazing, you get that real vacation feeling. The beach is walking distance with life guards. And butterflie blu resturant with a deli next to it and a small shop with the necessary needs, walking distance. I recommend it to anyone that want to relax and getaway from busy city life.

We stayed in Cottage 14, it had a lovely view from the balcony of the sea and great access to the seafront. Brenton is a little bit further out of the larger town of Kynsna, about a 15 min drive, which meant it was calm and peaceful and no high walls and barbed wire fences, so feeling like it's a...

I had the most amazing experience at Brenton on Sea with my friends , the stuff were very accommodating and helpful when we struggled to find the place because we arrived late in the evening, after the set check-in time. Keep up the excellent work, I cant wait to visit the place again!

We rented a three bedroom cottage and found it to be well equipped with the basic essentials. The cottages are located at the end of a bluff, so there is very limited choices for dining (two in the immediate area). Despite good intentions, we could not connect to internet and Chris (very nice maintenance man) repaired our t.v. but we...

I booked the trip for a honeymoon couple. I did not stay there personally. The couple however enjoyed their stay and appreciated the personal touch that was prepared for them. They said that this is a place they would certainly visit again.
