We booked in 2020 and only finally managed to get here in 2022. Being born and raised in South Africa I wanted to show my fiancé from UK my beautiful country. What a tick off to our trip! From the moment we arrived we experienced top class service with a smile and each staff member could not do enough to make our stay memorable. edwina entertained us with the best bar service, we laughed the entire time. The luxury chalet was perfect, the most comfortable bed, well thought out and the view of the sand dunes and sea was amazing! The chef Chad is highly skilled and he went out of his way to give us braai experience which we really appreciated. We squeezed as much as we could in 2 days and did the horse riding on the beach in the morning with William and his team who took us on a fabulous tour. For lunch we chose the luxury picnic delivered by horseback what a great selection of food and the location was mind blowing. For dinner Chad made a braai for us. Oh we also did dune safari that was so much fun!!

We would highly recommended Oyster Bay set on 245 Hectares with 980 different species of fynbos!

In December 2020 we took our second trip to Oyster Bay Lodge, and it will not be our last ! My wife's eyes start to glitter when I make noises of going there and my children simply adore this charming place that feels like home from home. The quaint accommodation, absolutely divine food and hospitality of Hans and his team is outstanding. I love the 10 min walk to the beach through the bush, the resident fish eagles, bush buck, the horse riding, the Oyster Catchers and the unspoilt nature and private beach. My kids ride horses every day and other amenities (golf) is 20 min away. MTB tracks, walking trails, picnics (in secluded spots), fishing (river and see) makes this place one of the gems of our country. I am booking for December 2021 soon !

Our second visit to the lodge. Daniel at reception and everywhere else reminds us why we came back. Pristine and unspoilt veld that makes me weep at its diversity and richness . Rooms with underfloor heating and hot water that’s really hot. Fireplaces and little touches to show thought and care without it losing its low key but wonderfully authentic vibe. Everything about this place is magical and to be treasured.

We were here for the second time now, and again it was just wonderful! This beach! This nature! This silence! Just overwhelming! The owner, Hans, has a really great team with excellent team spirit and a strong focus on customers. Also, the discussions with Hans when we by chance met him on the trails were very nice and informative. We will definitely come back ASAP.

Had a great few days at Oyster Bay lodge. Nice and quiet after the hustle and bustle of Jeffreys Bay. Glad we were in hire car for the drive to lodge as its a dirt road, but went slowly and no problems. The beach, sand dunes and surround are stunning. Sea is very strong and good for a paddle, but did not swim - rather went for dip in pool when we got back. Lots of bird life to look at and found a little tortoise walking round when we did one of the many walks! We got there early and stayed late to make the most of our time. Food was set meal and excellent. Will go again!

We loved our time at Oyster Bay Lodge. It is in a remote area but this is part of its appeal; it has its own beach a short walk away, and a pool. The staff were excellent in the way they looked out for all our needs, and the food, cooked and prepared on site, was superb. There are plenty of activities available - we tried horse riding, which was a great success. Access is a bit of an issue - we recommend using the Humansdorp route, which provided much easier than the alternative. Overall - highly recommended!

What a wonderful stay we had at Oyster Bay Lodge. We celebrated our anniversary weekend with our good friends who also celebrate their anniversary on the same weekend. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable with everything you needed (the patio with the view was the best!) The food was right out of the top drawer - excellent. Lots of fun activities - including horse riding on the beach which we did (with experienced and friendly guides). But what sets this Lodge apart, is the level of personal service from the staff. Danielle at reception was very friendly and efficient and Sidney, the Manager, made us feel so welcome and special - as did all the staff in fact. Loved every minute and would certainly go back.

We only had 2 nights here at the start of our SA trip but it was well worth the drive along a very bumpy gravel road. The food was tasty and well presented, the staff (especially Bonita and Zenze) were superb as was our chalet. The beach is just amazing. Our stay here was just what we needed to relax and recover from our 24 hrs travelling from the UK. Be sure to get directions before setting out as our hire car GPS took us on a very tortuous route! Thank you Oyster Bay Lodge for a fabulous start to our holiday.
