Brenton Beach House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 20, 2011

A fantastic place owned and managed by a fantastic guy. From the very first contact Derrick was extremely helpful and knowledgable. Our accommodation was superb with great sea views, was very spacious and comfortable. The common areas in the house were great for relaxation, the wifi facility very useful, and the honesty bar great. The breakfasts and service were excellent, Derrick being rightfully proud of his home made bread. Derrick also helpfully booked our golf tee times and suggested itinaries for other outings in the surrounding area. We stayed for 7 days this time and wished we had stayed longer. We will be back!

With guests who become friends by the time they leave, its not difficult to please. In fact, I think it is just as rewarding as a guest house owner to have people who are friendly and appreciate our beach house and see them leave with a wonderful souvenir of their stay with us.

Brenton on Sea is well worth a visit. It lies on a peninsula several kilometres from Knysna. The views on the way out to Brenton on Sea are spectacular as well as the views when you arrive. Derek made us feel so welcome. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable. Although we only stayed one night we could see the attractions in this small beach community. Derek made his own bread for our breakfast which was delicious. We would like to return for a longer stay.

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!!
