8/10 Very good

Our host, Joan, was very helpful and accommodating. Rooms are large, bright, and very comfortable. Located in a hilltop community 15 to 20 minutes from Knysna. Some rooms have partial ocean views. Property needs a handyman. Shower door not functioning properly, doors and windows sticking, But overall we would stay again. Be sure to have a fancy dinner one night down the road at Pembry’s

Derrick the owner was very friendly and he made some good local suggestions but the place was in need of some repairs . The breakfast was disappointing as they ran out of meat and bread 2 days plus the omelet had no ingredients . Charges for coffee pods etc were unnecessary. The property is a long walk to the beach .

Wonderful guest house close to a stunning beach.
The guest house was a wonderful surprise. Room spacious, beautifully decorated and great views and sounds of the sea. The owner was friendly, knowledgeable and gave great advise about thinks to do, see and where to eat. Wish we had stayed longer, and will hopefully return in the future.

Lovely hotel in beautiful Brenton
We really enjoyed our short stay at Brenton Beach House. The owner Derrick was really friendly and helpful and gave us an excellent dinner recommendation! We were given a choice of rooms on different floors and we were also able to see the honeymoon suite, which looked amazing! Our room was huge and we'll equipped and was clean and comfortable. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk and is stunning!

Great stay!
We had a great stay and the owner recommended a wonderful restaurant BLU very close to the unit which serves some great fish and offers the most magnificent sunset in town. The breakfast was out of this world and the owner bakes and makes most of the breakfast items he serves! The bottom bedroom is a bit humid (especially the room which has the bunk beds which has a carpet) Overall a great stay and a wonderful ambiance created by the artwork from the owners!
