We had a very pleasant stay at Beach Forest Lodge. Hein, the host was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The lodge is within walking distance from the beach and restaurants. The family unit has ample private outdoor space. The communal pool was exceptionally clean with comfortable seating options around to allow for a pleasant alternative to the sea or beach. I definitely recommend the property.

Solar is newly installed which really helped when there is loadshedding! Lovely time with family and friends. Close to beach and places to visit but still hidden away from the hustle and bustle with a beautiful forest-like feeling

Tranquil, well established getaway from everything! After spending a day on the beach or shopping, this is the perfect place to come and have a relaxing evening or rest for a while. Garden is well established with beautiful fish ponds. Nice private entertaining spots everywhere.

Lovely 3 night stay. Owners, Heinz and Corlia, were very welcoming and made our stay comfortable. Our 2 dogs also enjoyed running around in the spacious gardens. We even left some items behind and Heinz kindly delivered them to us. We'll definitely be back!!
