Take time to sit on one of the many benches, along this walk, to just enjoy the views that stretch the length of rugged coastline. A wonderful destination for the nature lover seeking a relaxed environment to return too after a day on the beach or after exploring the beautiful Garden Route.Bushbuck, the Knysna Turaco (Loerie) and mongoose are often spotted in our garden and the surrounds and the bird life is exceptional. During the months from June to November the Southern Right whales visit our coastline and can often be spotted from our upper deck or Fisherman's Walk.

      We stayed for 3 nights at Blue Dolphin Guest Flat.  The hosts were very friendly, warm and helpful.  The flat is well equipped and situated in a beautiful, quite street.  Walking distance to magnificent views and secluded beaches.Brenton on Sea is a lovely place to rest, enjoy nature and to explore the Garden route.We would definitely recommend Blue Dolphin to anyone.

      This flat in a quiet cul-de-sac was the ideal getaway for us and proved the perfect base for exploits in and around the Knysna area, without having to pay tourist prices.The small TV takes you back in time and if you're not hooked on DSTV that won't be an issue. The owners are very friendly without getting into your space and are able to point you towards the tourist traps but also their own little gems - like the local eatery.We will definitely go back and I'll recommend them to anyone looking to explore the Garden Route.

      We stayed at this lovely garden flat for three nights and it was really a little slice of home away from home.Klaus and Linda were extremely helpful ,friendly and an excellent example of South African hospitality.The early morning coffee outside on the patio with birds singins in the trees and guinea fowl on the lawn was a perfect start to the day,Spotlessly clean on arrival too.Excellent value for money.Go there for a great and affordable getaway.

      My wife and I stayed here in February 2012. The wooden log house was amazing and our hosts, Linda and Klaus who live upstairs, were really nice, friendly and keen to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The fabulous beach is only just down the road and you can see the sea from the patio. The accommodation was very clean and spacious but suitable only for two people, as access to the shower/toilet is through the bedroom.
