About 138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse

138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse is a stylish retreat from the bustle of city living, and is perched right on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, with a sprawling deck next to the beach.

Guests can soak up the sun on the spacious terrace, drinking in the views of the mountains and the sea, or can catch up on a good book on the deck, while sipping on some of the delicious estate wine. The fireplace inside is perfect for cooler evenings and guests that want to cosy up in front of the crackling logs.

Walks on the beach are a must, as are strolls along the coastal path, which showcases the fauna and flora of the rock pools, as well as the stunning fynbos skirting the guesthouse.

Amazing location on the sea edge, superbly appointed Accomodation and wonderful professional staff. The views are breathtaking and the guest house is well maintained and efficiently managed. The breakfast is tasty and well presented from continental to a hot option which was excellent. Security is very good and access is easy to navigate. We would totally recommend this establishment and commend their staff for wonderful service delivery!
