Thank you so much for reviewing our property, we always appreciate the time taken to write a review and it goes without saying that we appreciate your comments on our establishment. Many comments on the self catering units are how BIG they are, so they do tend to be popular with guests either travelling as a couple for a family beach holiday.

Once again, many thanks.

It was lovely meeting you at Sea Whisper, we are delighted that you had such a fabulous stay. The Beach Cottage is always a popular choice with guests so we are glad that it lived up to expectations.

Thanks so much for your review.

I had the pleasure of checking in to Sea Whisper Self Catering Accommodation while waiting to move to my permanent accommodation. My unit was very spacious and modern, clean, with a comfortable bed looking out over the ocean. I had the option to have a delicious breakfast in the guest house or cook for myself. The staff were friendly and efficient and prepared to go the extra mile, definitely the place to stay in Jeffrey's Bay as the accommodation is really spacious and well planned.

Although we do have many guests who visit us on holiday we also cater for Corporate guests too. So firstly thank you so much for taking the time to review our property and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is not always easy when you are moving from one city to another, so it was great to hear that the time you spent with us was pleasant and enjoyable. We do appreciate the constructive reviews that we receive and of course we would be unable to achieve this level of service without our incredible team of staff members who are always prepared to go the extra mile to make a guest's stay the best it can possibly be.

Sincerely

We - a family of 3 adults - stayed in Sand Piper Cottage for 5 nights over Christmas 2013. We loved the cottage. It was spacious, well equipped and had a lovely outside area to sit with a view of the sea. It was kept spotlessly clean. I found that the owner Michelle was very prompt in dealing with bookings and directions. Whilst we were there it was being managed by Mimi who was both helpful and friendly and worked so hard even on Christmas day. We enjoyed Jeffrey's Bay although the central area was overly busy for us (it was high season after all) but we went to the Kabeljous Beach which had lots of space and Lifeguards. On Michelle and Mimi's recommendation we had Christmas lunch at the Kitchen Window which was pleasant with the sun shining and a wonderful view of the sea being such contrast to the cold we would usually have at this time of the year

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Sandpiper unit. There are a number of self catering options to choose from in Jeffreys Bay so we always try to make sure that our self catering apartments are the best they possibly can be. It was great to be able to plan your stay (even though it was via email) so that you knew what to expect when you arrived at Sea Whisper. I think the one thing about the Sea Whisper self catering units that pleases guests is the size of each apartment coupled with the fact that they all have great sea views.

Once again, we appreciate your comments and thank you for your review.

With kind regards

This place was charming, very very clean, the owners couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. We had a room with a four poster bed and a balcony with a sea view. Is was very spacious for our needs and a useful fridge too.

All the décor and furnishings throughout were top notch and well maintained as were the gardens and pool area.

The breakfast was sumptuous and plentiful, cooked to order food, fruits, breads, delicious.

We went to a recommended restaurant called Kitchen Windows, Michelle booked it for us and arranged the restaurants taxi service for us too.

I could not fault this place at all.

We recently stayed in Sea Whisper for two nights and were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms and the quality of the food. Everything was well presented and well organised for every guest. The only thing that we could have used was a bathroom door!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Sea Whisper. We really understand the comment about the bathroom door. We are in the process of having them cut and fitted and had very much hoped to do this before the Christmas season, however the contractor closed in early December and we did not get our doors! You were wonderful guests and we loved having you here at Sea Whisper.
