“Great place”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We really enjoyed our 2 night break at Brenton beach house. The room was very big with a great view. Derrick was very friendly, very amusing and entertaining and very knowledgable. We wished we had stayed longer and then Derrick could have had a round of golf with us. We hope to be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the honeymoon suite / Gary Player room - well worth that bit extra.

Brenton on Sea is a great little beach community just out of Knysna. If you are looking for accommodation near to all the attractions of the region, that provides peace and tranquility, beach views and comfort, that has a very helpful and accommodating host; you won't do better than the Brenton Beach House.
Derrick is very friendly and is a wealth of knowledge. His breakfasts are a feature - second only to his infectious smile.

Hi Derrick,

we enjoyed the time at your nice Beach house a lot and want to say thank you for the great time. Good tips like World of Birds, beach walks etc. and many ideas ..., the option to have barbecue there was great after visiting your recommended butcher.... ;-)

My wife and me have never been feeling so welcome in a guesthouse really like at home. My wife and me are looking forward to visit you again.

My last words to all interested guests, I have been traveling a lot and this is a clear recommendation.

Cheers Bastian

The highlight of our trip along the Garden Route. Derrick, knowledgeable, charming host, bakes bread, cooks a cracking omelette and knows every inch of the local area.
Situated in Brenton on Sea, 10 - 15min drive to Knysna, we loved the location for its peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, stunning views and (something Kynsna can't offer) a long sandy beech.

We had a delightful 2 night stay at Brenton beach house. The breakfast was GREAT! Loved the freshly squeezed orange juice And homemade bread and jams. The view is wonderful, and we were close to all the great restaurants! Derrick was great at helping us plan our day every morning, and suggesting little quaint activities that are not super touristic. Loved it.
He even reserved the renowned Pembreys for us one night, very helpful.
Thank you Derrick!

You 2 are so privileged to be able to travel Africa at your age. Good for you. I think all young people should take any opportunity they have to travel. It certainly broadens our outlook. Good luck for the roads ahead.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Brenton Beach House and we had a fabulous time! Not only was the room and house gorgeous, but the service was excellent - we felt more like family than guests! We would honestly recommend this guesthouse to any person, travelling alone or in a group from anywhere in the world to stay at the beach house! We will definitely be back, and a game of golf...or two will definitely be in order. Thanks for everything:-)

Room Tip: Any room will do, but the gary player has the best view.

Brenton Beach House was the best accomodation during our long holiday in South Africa (one mounth in total). And this, not only for the beautiful ocean view and the wonderful breakfast, but first of all due to the great ospitality of the host, Derrick. He was for us really a new friend and gave us a lot of useful informations about South Africa, Knysna and garden route. We also can't forget his special homemade bread served at breakfast...!!
So, we advice to stay at Brenton Beach House, where we sure come again in future for a longer time.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite is fantastic
