About Brenton Beach House

One honeymoon / deluxe studio room with wonderful sea and village views from balconies on three sides and spa bath. All of our studio rooms are very spacious with balconies and have large luxurious en-suite bathrooms with walk in shower, and separate bath. We also have a deluxe family suite available.
Each room has TV, CD / radio and a small neat kitchenette area for light self catering containing fridge, basin, kettle, toaster, microwave, table ware etc and a kettle BBQ for relaxing evenings on the balcony. We provide bath-robes, beach towels, hair dryers, heaters, hot water bottles, bottled water, candles etc. in each room.
The guest lounge and dining areas, including the breakfast deck, are sunny and spacious with views out to the Indian Ocean. Guests may have a drink and enjoy the sunset on the outside deck or lawn in warm weather. Breakfast is served outside in season weather permitting.
We have a lovely sheltered pool and sun decks situated in the pretty tropical garden.
Attractions & Activities
There are several good restaurants within the Brenton area and a popular licensed café / bistro near to the beach. We are approximately 15 minutes scenic drive around the lagoon from Knysna with bars, restaurants, shops and the Waterfront marina. There are lovely beach and forest walks, horse-riding, sailing and golf (which we can arrange) are all close by.
We are ideally situated as a mid point on the Garden Route to take day trips to places of beauty and interest or just spend a few days relaxing in the sun on the beach or by the pool.
Brenton on Sea is a pretty unspoilt village nestling between the Indian Ocean and the hills of Knysna’s West Head. It is very green with indigenous flowers, trees and fynbos with buck, guinea fowl, meerkat and wild tortoise roaming freely. In spring and autumn, Brenton’s very own butterfly - the Brenton Blue - is visible, found nowhere else in the world other than Brenton-on-Sea.
From both Brenton Beach House and the cliff tops on the coastal paths, dolphins and whales (in season) can often be seen. Fishing boats and sailing yachts frequent the bay. Brenton is indeed one of the Garden Route’s hidden jewels.
