Fantastic stay at a well appointed guest house”

located directly ,on the beach, child friendly

We loved our stay at On the Beach Guesthouse. We stayed in the Oyster suite that was large and comfortfortable for a cuple travelling with a young toddler. Our little balcony was child friendly and provided breathtaking views of the sea and wave breaks. It was a thrill waking up to the sound of the sea and being able to take a few steps from the hotel to the sandy beach. Breakfast was a good treat and hot meal choice was just perfect. Would certainly be back!!

On the Beach no exaggeration”

Great view of beach

Comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with lovely view of the beach from the living room, main bedroom and ensuite. A couple of kilometres from the main part of jeffrey's Bay shops and restaurants though, and I'm not sure how soundproof the apartment would be if there were more guests. There is a beautiful shared loungeroom,dining room and bar upstairs in the guest house overlooking the beach which is real plus.

The staff were very friendly and were willing to assist in anything out of their way. Special compliments to Tshepo, who helped to arrange a picnic basket, mat, umbrellas and snacks so that we could have a romantic picnic by the beach just 20m away from the guesthouse. Breakfast was also delicious, especially the Eggs Benedict!

Great location and lovely food”

Location, breakfast choices and lounge area

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved the place. I think our room was the smallest in the hotel. The location is great as you're overlooking the beach - we were lucky to see dolphins from the window. The bar/lounge is very comfy and well stocked. Great choice at breakfast too. Rooms cleaned/tidied every day - cleaners were very thorough. All in all a great stay. Was a bit jealous of our friends who had the honeymoon suite as they had a huge bed, double shower and double bath! Only slight issue was there was no air con in our room, only a fan so we left the patio door open slightly at night. Lovely to hear the sea but the seagulls woke me up early!
