The perfect location combined with beautiful interior and friendly service makes On the Beach the perfect location for a family holiday or a business trip when you need to relax after a stressful day. The rooms are specious with amazing views of the ocean and mountains. The living area offers enough room for everybody without feeling crowded. I will recommend this venue to anybody looking for accommodation in Jeffreys Bay

Although its a 4 star guesthouse the service and view is a 5 star rating. Every room has its own character and style. Friendly service and an awesome breakfast. For me its a home away from home. You just want to kick your shoes off and relax. I can recommend On the Beach Guesthouse to everyone.

Very comfortable, clean and beautifully appointed room- consisting of a good size bedroom, large fully equipped bathroom, a living area, with direct exterior access. Secure parking and room was alarmed with 24 hour armed response. It is right on the beautiful beach. Comfortable and beautifully furnished common areas/lounges and outdoor space.
Great breakfast choices- not only your usual.
Great service. Free in room Wifi.

This family run ,exclusive 4 star guest house ,perched on a magnificent view site spanning blue flag beaches is indeed the best on offer in the entire Eastern Cape.
The profound impact of the world class art collection,set off against the awesome backdrop of surfers in the waves,with dolphins,blue sky,warm sunshine and powder white beaches is simply unbeatable.
The spectacular staff are friendly and very professional, focused totally on the needs of the guests.
The quality of the people who visit from all over the world is the cherry on top,making for lasting friendship formation.
The food at the breakfast table is fresh and the menu is way more than what you bargain for.
Great value for money and the right place for a relaxed romantic getaway with that someone very special in your life.
On the Beach Guesthouse lived up to all our expectations in every way, it is a truly beautiful property and we hope to return again soon!

Room Tip: The Penthouse suite was an absulate phenomenal experience, with a breathtaking ocean view!

We were fortunate enough to stay at On The Beach Guesthouse for a work trip and boy, the name of the guest house is quite apt. We stayed in the Luxury Rooms and they are very comfortable with great views of the ocean. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious enough. Breakfast was excellent (not sure if it was because of the great view you have while enjoying the breakfast). The staff were always very friendly and helpful and the communal facilities are of an excellent standard. The rate might be on the high side but in this case you definitely get what you pay for!

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra for the luxury rooms!

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.

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
