“Beautiful place - Relaxing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

I have just recently returned home after a very relaxing stay in the "Sea Whisper", an excellent, clean and friendly B&B which is close to beach and Jeffreys Bay.
The owners Dorvin & Michele made me and my young family feel very welcomed and provided us with everything that we could possibly need. The staff were very friendly and ensured we were taken care of at all times, the meals which were provided were excellent and cooked to perfection.
Overall the owners, staff, cleanliness, food, rooms and location were to a high standard and I look forward to visiting again next year.

Thanks Henry for your wonderful comments. We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us and that the weather was fine and sunny (even for August). We, as owners of Sea Whisper try to offer guests a variety of accommodation whether for business or family stays.

Thrilled that you found the food great and the staff friendly, we always say that we could not make Sea Whisper a success without our staff.

Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

We recently had a Garden Route holiday staying in B&B's.
Sea Whisper was up there with the best, lovely clean rooms, great breakfasts, and good advice about what to see and do. Michele and Dorvan the owners, are great hosts, their Manager Mimi and the staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly recommend the coffee and any type of eggs, the scrambled eggs were perfect, a great way to start the day.
Thanks Michele and Dorvan

First impressions of this guest house are excellent. We stayed in a room overlooking the ocean, which ended up being a suite because we had exclusive use of the lounge next door. There is another bedroom next to the lounge but there was no-one in it when we were there. American owner extremely friendly and welcoming. Everything about the accommodation is high standard. Cooked breakfast is magnificent - never eaten chicken livers for breakfast before! Only one small complaint - the dogs in the house next door. (right next to our room) started barking at 6am! I suppose it served as an alarm call!

Thanks for taking the time to stay with us at Sea Whisper and really would like to apologize about the dogs and hope it did not spoil your stay too much. The Sea Whisper Suite is a great place to stay because of the privacy and magnificent sea views. Hope the breakfast made up for the noisy dogs. Thanks so much for choosing us.

The rooms were small, clean and beautifully done. Perfect for couples and families. The owner and the manager were great friendly people. The place had free Wifi and the beach is not too far away. The highlight is the breakfast omelets, oh! they were yum. Me and my wife highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to JBay.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We have try to keep rooms and self catering units in a similar design but also added just enough touches to make them individual. It was wonderful having you visit us at Sea Whisper and so glad you enjoyed our breakfasts, especially the omelettes. Our aim is to try and make our guests feel special and relaxed so that they leave Sea Whisper rested and ready for the next adventure.

Sincerely

My husband and I don't often get the chance to get away so when we do we expect the accommodation to be outstanding and we can definitely say that that is exactly what Sea Whispers offer and more! From the moment you drive up the drive way you already get an idea of the tranquil ambiance and warmth. We were greeted by very friendly staff members and the owner Michele. Helen the lady that cleaned our room on a daily basis was so friendly and made sure we received our chochies and biscuits. She also made a fuss over our little baby which was quite nice too. On our return next year we will definitely want to stay in room 6 again as the sea view was breath taking and look forward to the delicious breakfasts! See you all again soon!

Room Tip: Room 6 upstairs offers an awesome ocean view

It always is good to hear when guests have had an outstanding stay with us at Sea Whisper. We loved having you and your family here to stay. It is wonderful and motivating to both ourselves and our staff to hear that our guests have had a fantastic time with us. We have had the same staff in place for a number of years which helps in maintaining the continuity of our business.

We look forward to welcoming you back at Sea Whisper in the not too distant future.
