I stayed in room 3 and I really enjoyed my 5 nights there. It was very clean, comfortable and peaceful away from the busy crowds in the centre of Margate. The sea views from the guesthouse are amazing and a sparkling swimming pool to cool down in the afternoon. The breakfast was scrumptious and delicious with good portions. Sharonn and her staff were amazing and made me feel at home. I would highly recommend Beachcomber Bay Guesthouse as a home away from home.

This is not to say that the property was all sorts of great stuff,(in terms of a wow bedroom and so forth), however it has a really great ocean view and a private beach nearby by at a walkable distance 😍. That’s if you love swimming just like me. The host (Sharon) was really carrying and kind. Your stay at beachchomber bay makes you feel at home.♥️ The breakfast was also on another level. Basically, Beachcomber Bay is the place to stay when you are around Margate because it’s also not far from Margate centre.

This is a beautiful place which offers beautiful seaview rooms. You get to see and be very close to the ocean everytime of the day. The place has private access to the beach. There are useful facilities such as jacuzzi, pool, braai place which are also overlooking the ocean. The area is very quiet, excellent for relaxing.
