My baby daughter and I came down to Brenton-on-Sea for business. It was an exhausting trip travelling with a 16-month old from Johannesburg. I arrived at the Brento Beach House slightly exhausted and frazzled. Derrick however, made us feel right at home, comfortable and relieved to be "home".
He took extra good care of us, drove me to my first meeting to show me around and in general was just an outstanding host. Breakfasts are great - healthy yet delicious, rooms are superb and entire experience was awsome. I will certainly be back, hopefully next time with the rest of the family - ON HOLIDAY - to make full use of this great home away from home.

Room Tip: I preferred the Ernie Els room - where I stayed.

It was a pleasure having you stay with us. Baby was so good that we almost never heard her. I hope we do see you and your family soon but this time on holiday.

Derrick and Jean-Michel welcomed us like friends when we arrive at Brenton Beach House. Our room was large, comfortable and well-furnished. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the giant main room.
We had a nice day playing Pezula golf course (one of the best in SA) with Derrick and wished we had one more day to enjoy Simola golf course as well...

It will be good to have a return game at Pezula or Simola when you come back to the BBH. Lets hope JMB will be with us at that time as well

We only stayed for one night on our way back to Cape Town but we would have loved to stay longer. The house is a little far away from Knysna but well worth it - beautiful house, welcoming host and tasty breakfast! We got upgraded to the "Honeymoon" Sea View Suite and as we just got engaged, this made our stay even more special - beautiful room with gorgeous ocean view (although it was a bit misty when we were there...). Derrick was lovely and gave us a good recommendation for dinner. Merci encore!!

Room Tip: Sea View Suite
