Derrick was very kind to us - this was a last minute booking and he was very accommodating and helpful. It is situated on a quiet road overlooking the sea. We stayed twice during the month. Our first room had a large balcony overlooking the beautiful tropical garden that is filled with numerous birds. On our second stay we had...

Great hospitality with excellent information and suggestions in particular on local restaurants. The owner is a born raconteur based on his long business career based in the south of France. There certainly is a french feel about the place. Great bird life as well within the gardens.

When the Springbok's play, I'm behind them for sure even if they are playing against the French. But if the French rugby team is playing against another nation, then my heart is with the froggies. :) I certainly enjoyed my +- 30 years in France and know that this comes through when I talk about food and restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay at Brenton Beach House, and were only sorry that we didn't stay longer. I would recommend not making the same mistake! This is an excellent base for discovering the Garden Route and the owner, Derrick, perfects it!

As newlyweds we wanted somewhere romantic, private but particularly with ocean views for a few days while family in the next town looked after our son. We couldn't have asked for more- huge bed, bathroom with enormous corner bath with jet spa, but mainly THE VIEW. Decorated in a clean white and blue nautical theme, with a private balcony, the...

An excellent sea view property , although a bit out of knysna. Lots of helpful advice from the owner on things to do and places to eat. Can recommend elephant park as an excellent attraction to go to - worked for us on a wet day

Right out of the pages of an interior décor shoot - if you just love beach house décor then this is a treat! Gorgeous blue and white interiors, sea views and a warm, welcoming host who whips up a French omelette in a jiffy.

The house is comfortable and the rooms are large and clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Overall, we were very satisfied. The only drawback that we found is that there were steep outdoor stairs leading to the rooms in the lower level which were a bit uncomfortable.

A return visit to our favourite location on the Garden Route. We timed our visit this year to coincide with the Simola Hill Climb.
