We enjoyed our stay, it was comfortable and rustic. More suited for family holiday than an overnight stay.

Clean, simple accommodation with a fantastic sea view from unit 3. Easy access to a beach we you can relax or have the opportunity to walk and explore. Will definitely return.

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.

Peaceful , private and an amazing view of Dolphins dancing in the dark blue Ocean , was what you get for your money . We say thanks to Collin and Lee , our stay wasn't long enough and we will be back soon for more !

Vi troede vi skulle bo der i 3-5 dage men blev i 14, og kunne godt have taget 14 dage mere. Ikke super luxsus og netop derfor super hyggelig og afslappet. Meget søde og hjælpsomme værter. Håber vi kan komme tilbage en gang.

My husband and I (and the kids of course!) would just like to thank Lee and Collin for the perfect holiday we had at Bretton Beach Crest!!! The place is wonderful and our view was stunning!!! In our 17 years of marriage, we decided, THIS ONE was our best holiday ever!

After a long drive from Bronkhorstpsuit (50 kilos from Pretoria) we were very surprised by the friendly welcome we received from Colin and Lee Howard from Bretton Beach Crest. Our stay was excellent and we enjoyed the view and saw some whales while we were sitting on the stoep. My husband had a bypass and that was just the thing he needed to rest and relax.Every thing we needed was their and the cottage were very clean. As it was our first time in the Eastern Cape we explored quite a lot. Thank you very much, we will defnitely recommend Bretton Beach Crest to our family and friends.

Beautiful, affordable and well kept. As a family of five, we had wonderful experiences playing in the sun, swimming, collecting shells, and enjoying long walks on the beach. We will defiantly be visiting again soon!

I stayed at Bretton Beach for the entire month of February and had a wonderful time. The cottages are clean, spacious and very well appointed. I only had to bring towels as everything else is provided. The cottages are in a very peaceful location with stunning ocean views and are suitable for both families and couples. Bird life is abundant in the area and it's a great base for exploring the surrounding Eastern Cape. The owners are very friendly and happy to help with any queries you may have. I'm already looking forward to returning next year for another long stay.
