The rooms have the most stunning view of the ocean - glass doors and balcony allow an unhindered view of vast expanses of beach and sea. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. The facilities are beautiful, especially the wooden deck with loungers and an honesty bar. I felt as though I was at some exotic holiday destination (Mauritius, Greece)...

Highly recommended. Very nice place with beautiful sea view. Room and linen was of high standard. Service was excellent, people were so friendly and really spoiled us. Atmosphere was always relaxing, everything is super clean,laundry service is little bit too expensive, but the rest was absolutely great!!!

With our busy city lifestyles, visiting this quaint spot in Wilderness was a much needed breakaway, fantastic rooms with stunning views of the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Already booked my return visit.

Every aspect of On The Beach is excellent. The rooms are very modern and very smart and comfortable. The beach is a few feet away and has glorious sand and waves. There are very good restaurants within 4 minutes walk and it is safe to walk everywhere. We would love to go back.

The service generally was excellent, however we had to enquire every day for replacement of facial cloths and coffee, which had not been automatically replaced during clean-up. Cleanliness and room quality was found 100% no complaints. The reception staff are outstandingly friendly and helpful and every request was handled promptly and without fuss. The breakfasts are out of this world

What a great find - what I would only describe as a five star B&B with a great view of the ocean from your room, a great breakfast and lovely people running it - I look forward to our next stay although I don't think it will be for a while now!

There is one North facing room overlooking the lush hills behind the village and ideal to catch the warm winter sun.
