The Beach House Guest House”

Welcome, Breakfast, Tastefully decorated

Mary Anne made me feel very welcome. The staff were very pleasant when serving breakfast. The guest house is tastefully decorated, especially the lounge and dining room area. The Beach House Guest House was centrally located and close to restaurants and shops. I was doing a course, so it was very convenient. I would recommend the Beach Guest House to others.

Great Location.”

The location of the Beach House is amazing with wonderful views of the beach and Chapmans Peak. Our hosts Sylvie and Zac were very friendly and welcoming and obliged us by printimg our boarding cards for our flights home. We would definitely recommend the Beach House . We stayed on two seperate occasions during our holidays and the second time we stayed in an upstairs room which we would recommend for the magnificent views. We will definitely be back.

Long winter weekend at The Beach House”

Location, spacious site, comfort

My stay at The Beach House felt convenient, comfortable and clean. The room felt damp due to the proximity of the shower to the room but after airing it enough it was better. Maybe the extractor fan was not working properly. The convenience factor was that I was able to come and go easily with the large parking area and remote gates in easy proximity to the bedroom door leading directly outside the building. Great & polite service too. Thank you

This was a quick in and out with an arrival of 22:30 and departure of 06:30. The host was super accommodating, staying up late and making me an early breakfast. Wish I could stay longer with the guest house being right next to the sea. Recommend the sea-facing rooms!
