“Fabulous Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Although we had emailed and our daughter had telephoned, they were not expecting us when we turned up on Sunday 14th April. However, Visu came to the rescue, welcomed us and allocated us the Whale Room with a view of the beach and patio doors onto the deck area. Very well appointed room, extremely comfortable bed and great to wake up to sunshine and watch people surfing before breakfast! An extremely good breakfast was served on the first floor with views all along the beach. A great start to our trip along the Gardens Route to Cape Town.

We stayed here for one night in a downstairs beachfront room at a total cost of R1500. Our room had the most bizarre design I have ever experienced where the bath, toilet, shower and sinks are all open as part of the main room and are strangely at the front of the room by the windows onto the beach. The showers flood the shiny tiled floor making it precarious to walk around, there are strangely two separate showers next to each other but one sink and the lack of privacy for the toilet needs a very open mind. The room also had a strong smell of damp. On a positive note however, the location is excellent, the view from the breakfast area is absolutely stunning and breakfast itself was fine. We didn't get a chance to see the upstairs rooms which may have been better.

Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for taking the time to review your stay at On the Beach Guesthouse. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed our hospitality, facilities and services, the ambience and the location of our guesthouse.

We do have other rooms and suites that you might prefer to the Oyster Honeymoon Suite that you stayed in, we have taken your thoughts on the layout of the room into consideration and will look into the problem.

The entire team at On the Beach Guesthouse is looking forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Kindest regards,

We were fortunate enough to use TripAdvisor and land up here. The view onto a perfect seaside garden , onto the beach and the sea beyond made all the difference. So the penthouse suite has the best view and accommodation. The only problem was the smell from the toilet. The problem has obviously been looked at but the problem was not fixed. The space, the furnishing and the cleanliness all added to a great experience. Even better was the barbecue room at the bottom overlooking the sea. We had a few exceptional evenings drinking good South African red wine and eating great food whilst taking in the glorious sea views. The eggs Benedict for breakfast is a must. The owner is a great lady who understands hospitality and client relations. The chief/ male waiter was well trained. I would personally recommend that this establishment push for a 5* rating

Beautiful and very clean room directly on the beach.
Good recommendation of restaurants, especially „Kitchen’s Window“.
Very good selection of drinks in the honesty bar.
We only spent one night, but it is recommendable to stay longer.

We recently stayed here for 1 night and could have stayed for longer. We stayed in the penthouse which had fantastic views and was very spacious. It was lovely to sit in the chairs with the big picture windows overlooking the beach. The bath & shower was open plan, not everyone's taste, didn't do it for me. The floor by the shower got rather wet and was very slippery as a consequence.
The owner & staff seemed very friendly. Breakfast was in a lovely room, again with sea views. If we were in J Bay again we would stay here.

An unscheduled 1 night lay-over turned into 2 nights when we experienced the wonderful hospitality of On The Beach guest house. The Magna Tube 2 bedroomed suite is stunningly decorated with the ocean on your feet. Friendly and attentive staff , and what a breakfast ! Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Magna Tube for families of 4. No disturbance from other rooms.
