“Picture book beach house - supercool host”
Reviewed 23 April 2013
We - a family of 2 adults and 2 teenage girls - stayed at BBH beginning of April. Derrick gave us a warm welcome and immediately upgraded us to the best available rooms. The parents got the honeymoon suite :-) with the beach view and the daughters the room with view on the resident owl. Derrick, French resident for a large part of his life & sports buff, took up his role with much energy and enthusiasm. He gave us tons of tips for restaurants, views, beach runs, wildlife resorts & forest hikes. We could have stayed here 2 weeks instead of 2 days!
“Great Guest House! Great Host!”

Während unserer 3wöchigen Rundreise haben wir 4 Nächte im BBH verbracht. Wir waren begeistert von der ruhigen Lage etwas ausserhalb von Knysna und der entspannten Atmosphäre im Haus. Derrick ist ein toller Gastgeber, der durch seine herzliche Art einem jederzeit das Gefühl gibt, dass sein Haus auch dein Haus ist. Danke, Derrick!

We spent a wonderful night at the Guesthouse. The decoration is cosy and room is clean. It’s perfectly located along the coast, where it’s just few minutes walk to see the panoramic view of the Buffalo Bay. We did a morning walk along the coast with the host. That’s refreshing.
The host is very friendly. He made us home-made bread and fresh juice for breakfast, which is really homely. Will definitely recommend travelers to stay here.
“A pleasant surprise!”

We came across Brenton House after finding our usual accommodation fully booked. A happy occurrence indeed! We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay here and have recommended it to our friends and family.
“A wonderful stay!”

This place is a 10-mins drive from Knysna (the town), and as previous reviewers said, located near one of the best beaches in South Africa!! the beach on the other side of the bay, called 'buffalo bay' is truly the best beach I've been to, not just in South Africa, but in all my travels!
About Brenton Beach House, first, I cannot stress enough how delightful Derrick, our host, was, ! He is very friendly and knows everything about Knysna. Whatever you want to do, Derrick will tell you the right place to go!
We had one of the lower deck rooms. I can't believe how every single detail was considered in the design of the room!! it is very spacious (which is uncommon in B&Bs), with everything you could possibly need. same for the bathroom.
“Great accommodation coupled with expert golf guide”
Reviewed 30 April 2013
The house is very close to one of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa. It is about 15 mins from Knysna but is an easy drive and the quality of the accommodation at Brenton is worth the drive. Derek is a great host aided by Juliette. Nothing is too much trouble and Derek arranged our golf and was able to obtain discounted green fees. His dinner recommendations were spot on and I really wished we could have stayed longer. I would recommend Brenton Beach House unreservedly. The breakfast was also great, it's a delight to have a host who is a real gourmet and who enjoys good food! he makes his own bread for breakfast!!
