About Ansteys Beach Self Catering & Backpackers

Come and experience laid back and comfortable beach living at its best at Ansteys Beach Self Catering Apartments on the beach. We pride ourselves on making our guests feel comfortable and welcome, which is why many happy guests return time and time again.

Ansteys has great lifeguard protected beaches, paddling pools for small children at both beaches, consistent good surf, warm water all year round. The beautiful unspoilt Bluff beaches are also very popular for leisurely strolls - arm yourself with a steaming hot cup of coffee in the early mornings, take a quick walk to the beach and experience the most spectacular sunrises, or grab your bathing suit, go for a hazy late afternoon swim/surf or simply just sit on the beach and watch everyone else frolic in the surf - life certainly doesn’t get much better or more relaxing than that!


We cater for all budgets, offering a variety of comfortable, fully equipped self catering units from 2 sleeper to 8 sleeper units set in a tropical garden, as well as a backpackers hostel for those travelling on a tighter budget. Owned and run for many years by a well-known surfing family and friendly, helpful staff, a relaxing holiday in a homely atmosphere is guaranteed.
