About Bretton Beach Crest Holiday Cottages

Bretton Beach Crest resort consists of 9 comfortably furnished self catering beach cottages in a superb setting in the natural coastal dune forest, all within 100m of the beach and private from each other. Most of the cottages have lovely views and being on the beach front there are no busy roads to cross.

Whales are often seen from June to December as well as occasional schools of dolphin. Sun and moon rise over the sea can be spectacular.


Each cottage has either a double bed or 2 single beds in the main bedroom, a double bunk for children in the second bedroom and 2 single beds in the lounge / dining area. The kitchen is extremely well equipped including double door fridge / freezer + microwave and a gas stove with oven.

The bathroom has a shower over the bath and a separate toilet. Bed linen is provided but guests are required to bring their own toiletries, bath and kitchen towels. All cottages have a TV (with SABC channels + a satellite dish so bring your own standard decoder for full dstv), their own braai area and monitored security and there is a security gate at the entrance to the resort.


The setting is ideal for families with young children being so close to the beach and for those who like to get away from it all. There is a kiddies tidal pool in the rocks just in front, the children love the rock pools. You can walk along the beach for miles, collect shells, go fishing, enjoy the many species of birds around the cottages or on the beach, or simply relax on the veranda with a book.


Pets are allowed by prior arrangement with management. They must not be a threat to the small buck that live in the surrounding bush and be under control at all times.

The cottage we staged in had a great view of the ocean. Al be it the weather was not the greatest for walking around, the rain was a blessing on its own with the view it ended up being perfect. Beach is quite close by too. Cosy little place, affordable, outdoor braai, will return again in the future for sure. Hosts were also very friendly!

If your looking for great value self catering accommodation in the best location in Port Alfred then book one of the beautiful cottages here. You wake up to the sound of the ocean every day and it's so peaceful and private. Colin and Lee who run Bretton Beach are wonderful and friendly hosts. I can't recommend a stay here highly enough.
