We have a wonder stay at Brenton on the Sea with Derrick. The location is wonderful with great access to some magnificent beaches. Derrick is a wealth of knowledge about the area and an amazing chef. His omelets and fresh French bread are of particular note.

This is the second time I have stayed in this Beach House and it did not disappoint. Derrick is a wonderful host and has excellent suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. The home cooked breakfast is a great start to the day, especially the bread! Brenton-on-sea is a great location for access to Knysna...

This is a family run guest house and is an absolute gem. Derrik could not do enough to help and was an expert on the area and what to see and do. His restaurant recommendations were as good as his guest house. A healthy breakfast was included in the price. We stayed for 3 nights while doing the Garden Route,...

Beautiful place on top of a cliff with a great view of the ocean.

A wonderful welcome from Derrick and good advice for local eateries. The superior room was large, as was the bathroom, and I can find no fault with it. Excellent breakfast; we would definitely go back.

The beach house is a really relaxing place to stay set on the cliffs above the Indian Ocean. It has a lovely light airy feel and wonderful hospitality from Derrick who tells you all the best places to go in the area.

The beach house is very comfortable, neat, bright and sunny. A truly uplifting place, very well located, a short walk down a steep hill to the beach. Derrick and his wife were great hosts. Brenton-on-Sea beach is great!

You don't need to go to the tourist office as Derek has all the info you need. Local restaurants, walks, views. Breakfast has everything you would want. You should try his whisked omelette, amazing. Our room was called Ernie Els and was huge. Huge bed, enormous bathroom. Coffee and tea making facilities, fridge, hairdryer. Balcony with seats overlooking the pool....
