Bernard and Anita have created the ultimate B&B. Excellent location highlighted by a secure, modern facility. We had a self catering unit that was very efficient and well appointed. A lounging deck overlooked a tranquil wooded area. Anita served a traditional English breakfast which included a variety of cereals, fruits, yogurts as well as hot entrees. Recommend reservations in advance.

Room Tip: We had a self catering unit. Rooms are very large. Great for families.

We arrived in Plett for a couple of days and found this gem of a B&B which was very close to the beach and handy for restaurants by car. We stayed in the penthouse apartment which is well worth the extra money purely for the scenic views, we also had a separate kitchen to our bedroom which was especially useful. If visiting Plett definitely give this place a try.

Our four-day stay at Aberni On Sea during October 2012, was simply incredible. The guest house is surrounded by tranquility, situated a stone's throw from the beach and very close to the picturesque surroundings of Plettenberg Bay. Anita and Bernard are the perfect hosts and their devotion to service excellence is clear. The spacious rooms are scrupulously clean, tastefully decorated and provide for more-than-adequate self-cartering facilities. The balcony allows for some private relaxation and the perfect setting after the day's activities. Mornings start with a superb breakfast served with a variety of choices. This upmarket guest house is highly recommended and distinguishes itself from other guest houses that we have stayed at both locally and abroad. Thanks for making our stay such a memorable one!!!

Room Tip: I think any room choice will guarantee stisfaction.

Me and my companion stayed for 8 days this December (2011) at Aberni on Sea (which we found on this site). It was by far one of the best guesthouses that we have stayed at over the years. It's like an upmarket apartment/ hotel feel. Everything lived up to the recommendation. Bernard and Anita are friendly and professional all in one. Close enough to the beach to walk back should you forget anything and a quick drive should you need the shops. Loved it and would do it again.

We stayed at Aberni on Sea in November 2011.
It is a fantastic guest house in a great location! The beach is approximately 100 metres from the guesthouse.
The accommodation is beautiful. An added benefit to the accommodation is the kitchenette in each room.
Bernard and Anita made us feel very welcome!
I would highly recommend Aberni on Sea to anyone staying in Plettenberg Bay!

We stayed at aberni on Sea in Oct 2011, during our vacation to SAfrica. It was the best place we stayed out of the 5 places we visited in S.Africa. It was very nice of Bernard to offer us a discounted rate. The Mini apartment with a big balcony was very good. The bed was comfortable, they had all the necessary items one needed for cooking in the American style Kitchen/Dinning. The beach was walking distance away.. the walk to the beach is also nice and the area is quite area. All the main restaurants were close by including a shopping market. Both Bernard and Anita made us feel at home and are such warm hearted people, would definitely recommend this place.

Bernard and Anita are the friendly, helpful host and hostess of this great establishment.
We happened upon Aberni whilst searching for accommodation last Sunday evening.
As it is not the season we found that many of the places we tried were closed and were prepared to take any accommodation in order to have a bed for the night.
Instead we found Aberni, a well-equipped, comfortable self-catering establishment situated close to the beach.
Bernard was well informed about the restaurants and what to do and where to go and was also very helpful with internet issues we had. Anita maintains the facilities in spotless condition and we were very happy to have stayed there and definitely recommend other travellers to try them.
Their rates were very competitive.
