Now we would like to thank Ronell and Quintin for the wonderful stay, you have really made us feel at home, Keep up the good work .

Dear Mike and Josephine - Thank you so much for the lovely review. We really miss you and trust you have adjusted to the extreme climate change from our lovely warm weather in South Africa to the ice cold Germany! We hope to see you on a return visit - it was a great pleasure to have you as our guests - in the meantime take care until your next vacation.

Kind regards

It's taken us several trips to Mossel Bay to finally discover the best place to stay! We travelled with our adult son, and the family suite we booked was perfect, consisting of one large double room and one smaller single, both with a sea view. The single room felt bright and airy, thanks to the white furniture, and the bathroom was perfectly appointed, with all the necessities and additional thoughtful touches. Breakfast was delicious, with a fresh fruit platter provided the minute one sat down, in a room overlooking the ocean and the slopes where bucks roam freely. The whole place is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable, and the 4 stars well-deserved. In addition, Ronell and Quinton, the owners, are a warm and friendly couple who make you feel at home, like most other reviewers have commented. They clearly take pride in offering excellent service in beautiful surroundings, and we will definitely stay there again on our next trip!

What makes this place so special? It could be the views; it must be the people who make you feel like part of the family; the beautiful bedrooms with the special little touches (don't forget the soft, white gowns and waffle slippers!); to start the day with a breakfast that is an experience to look forward to; the care, the comfort, the general feeling of well-being in a clean, fresh environment ... Dana Bay Guesthouse is such a unique establishment with so many strong points that it it should be kept a secret, but to be fair, the top of the list is where it belongs.

The guesthouse has a panoramic view on the ocean. Quiet location with a garden in the dunes. The room is nicely decorated with all confort and it is cosy. The bathroom is wonderful, luxurious. The breakfast was well cared for and very good. Unfortunately we were there only one night. It was the best bed and breakfast that we had booked. Thank you Ronell for your hospitality and for the carefullness, everything shows that.

This guest house located 6 min from Petro SA which made going home something to look forward to every night after a long days work. The view is something to take in and while having breakfast looking out over the ocean is not something one experiences every day. We would just like to thank Ronell and Quinton for their hospitality and i strongly recommend it to everybody.

On our way to Cape Town, we stayed in Addo Elephant Park, we stayed 2 nights in this beautiful guest house.
The lady of the house is a very kind woman.
By the way, her husband also.
The breakfast is perfect with a lovely view on the ocean. And yes, we have spotted a whale!
The room was also very beautiful. Everything, you want is available.
Breakfast is served with love for the guests.

We travelled over 4000km and stayed in 7 different B&B's. Our most memorable B&B was Dana Bay Guest House. The room was absolutely stunning, not to mention the view and our only wish is that we had booked for another day, at least. Ronell and her hubby made us feel like family and it was almost sad leaving the next morning after the most scrumptious breakfast. I can honestly say that you only realize what 4-star means after you have experienced it. Thank you so much for referring us to "Polka" restaurant in Graaf-Reinet. Athol had the Lamb Curry as you suggested and he loved it.
Warmest regards,
Cherene & Athol
