Review by Lilian Welthagen (Brits S.A)

Hello Poppy,
Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome and making our stay and holiday so special. We really appreciated the warm hospitality and advise and help in where to go and what to see. The apartment was beautiful and more than comfortable and I am definitely going to recommend Bayview Guest Apartments to family and friends.
God bless.

Hi Poppie

Mike and I were talking about you last night and how wonderful our time with you was. So I thought I would pop you an email to say hi. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a splendid New Year.

Thank you again for making our stay so extra special.

Let us know how you are and please keep in touch with us.

Lots of love

Review by Margaret & Ian Evans (United Kingdom)

Hello Poppie,
We are now back in the wet UK, not too cold though. Thank you for a wonderful stay yet again, dont know whether we will make it next year, but we had a lovely time staying in your wonderful apartment. The views again were magnificent with total peace. The new shower was lovely as was the rest of the apartment. Look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.
Kind regards,
Margaret and Ian

Review by Marieta SteenKamp (Pretoria)

This is to confirm that we, the Steenekamp family, made used of the self-catering facilities at Bay View Guest Apartments at Brenton on Sea during the March – April 2011 school holidays. The standard of accommodation was excellent. The apartment was well equipped and the owners catered for many needs i.e. internet availability which made our lives much easier as my husband had to be connected to his business. The kids enjoyed the garden and the stunning sea views. The facilities were clean and neat and we felt at home.

The Bay View Guest Apartments could be recommend as an enjoyable holiday destination.

Review by Charl De Villiers (Pretoria)

I recently spent 3 nights at Bayview, Brenton-on-sea, (Knysna) near George on the famous South African Garden Route. My lodgings were spacious, well-appointed and impeccably clean. The location, a mountain ridge with superior views of the ocean and the sun setting over the water, is simply awesome.

The B7B’s grounds are beautiful in their own right: an abundant garden - and I really enjoyed the Koi fish nursery. My hosts, Theuns and Poppie, literally went more than the extra mile: the hospitality had true human warmth. My only regret is that time did not allow me to spend at least one more night there.

Review by Simon & Damaris Mathiga-Mohlabe (Gauteng)

Hi Poppie/Theuns

Me and my wife, Damaris would like to thank u for your unequalled hospitality and helpfulness during our stay at your place. You really

went out of your way to make us feel at home. We can’t stop telling our friends about you and your guesthouse. It is fully equipped and extremely clean.

From the balcony the ocean view is so spectacular . especially during the sun set. In short, we have never enjoyed a stay(though short) before like we did

at your place. For everything you did for us, me and my wife have decided to give u a STAR each to make your place a complete 5 STAR guesthouse.

Keep up the good work guys ,we will be back sooner than expected.

Thanx once more.

Review by Rob & Annel Rhodes (Plumstead - Cape Town)

You have to experience it to believe it - we had a great apartment! Photo's do not do the views justice - you need to see it for yourself. Lord willing, we will be back for longer than 7 nights. Poppie is a marvelous hostess.
