Es una casa totalmente equipada, con detalles de alta calidad, pero sobre todo el encanto y dedicación de sus dueñas. La localidad de brenton es hermosa y tranquila, la playa perfecta, está a 800 metros que puedes hacerlo a pie o en auto. Te brindan desde detalles de una botella de vino local, agua, café nespresso, sombrilla, tablas de bodyboard para la playa, que mis hijos disfrutaron enormemente. Juegos de mesa variados y amplia disponibilidad de libros que hicieron nuestra estadía sumamente placentera. Tienen dos parrillas, una a gas y la otra a carbón, que también te lo facilitan. Sin duda trataré de volver y prolongar mi estadia, perfectamente puedes pasar más de una semana. Puedes alternar vida de playa, con senderismo por la ruta jardín.

It is a fully equipped house, with high quality details, but above all the charm and dedication of its owners. The town of Brenton is beautiful and quiet, the perfect beach is 800 meters that you can do on foot or by car. They provide you with details of a bottle of local wine, water, nespresso coffee, umbrella, body boards for the beach, which my children greatly enjoyed. Varied table games and wide availability of books that made our stay very pleasant. They have two grills, one gas and the other charcoal, which also facilitate it. I will definitely try to return and prolong my stay, you can perfectly spend more than a week. You can alternate beach life, with hiking along the garden route.

“Long story short: if you’re looking for place near Knysna, you should stay here, no doubt! The whole story: Staying at Esmé’s and Julie’s house was a really awesome experience! Our rooms looked like at 5-stars hotel: four towels per person in same color with linens; chocolate and flowers at the bed. And also wine (and water and milk, of course) in the refrigerator, cookies and wide range of coffee and tea at the kitchen, stylish little bottles of shampoo, lotiton and everything that you need at bathroom, etc. All areas were super-clean and comfortable. And there was even a football match on TV with my favorite team (how do you now about that?)) Esmé and Julie are super-welcoming hosts! They were waiting for us till late evening (unfortunately, we were later, than we had planned). And after our arriving showed us all the places and even the short road to the beautiful ocean view. Oh, yes! I should say about this ocean view. It’s pretty close to the house (about 1min walking) and it’s incredible. Breathtaking. Stunning. I was sitting at the bench and said to my sister, that now I realize that I want to live here :) And the animals (cat and parrot) were very quiet. No problems with sounds or something like that. Highly recommend this place to stay! And I would like to stay here longer, than for one night.”

“Relaxing apartment that is very worth a stay”

The light in the living room doesn't match the nice atmosphere of the rest of the apartment...

Spacious & clean apartment with very nice hosts that even care for the little extras (we got some wine and chocolate, and specific instructions where to enjoy the bottle :D)

Note from hosts: We have since changed the lighting in the living room to make it more cosy, thanks for your feedback Daniel

“Stunning beach and peaceful, well-equipped accommodation”

“Incredible value for money for the comforts provided.”

Really nothing to dislike. The only issue was that Brenton-on-Sea has limited options for eating out, so one would need to drive to Knysna for this.

This was incredible value for the price. Two very spacious rooms with super comfortable, luxurious beds. Dining table, lounge area with all DStv channels, kitchenette, each bedroom had its own bathroom. Lindt ball choccies on beds for everyone and even coffee pods - couldn't quite believe how much was provided for the price. Really recommended.

Thank you for the nice stay at your Lodge, Esme. We really enjoyed it and were surprised by the extra mile you would go for your guests as well as the cleanliness of your place and extras you have available for your guests. We will see you next year again. PS. Thanks for the nice coffee!

Rustig en sorgelose verblyf.

Tydens ons aankoms was ons goed ontvang deur die eienaars. Lekker rustige huis-omgewing. Geen onnodige geraas van voertuie asook geblaf van honde of mense wat in die strate ronddrentel nie. Sal beslis weer gaan!
