What a view! Right on the edge of a high dune overlooking the ocean. Waking up to that was a dream! Excellent hosts who entertained us all evening. We felt like part of the family. The house really is very comfortable and my room was fantastic.

We enjoyed our short stay at Dover on Sea. Each morning the breakfast was delicious, with varied choices. The hosts were most gracious and were very helpful in suggesting other venues to eat at for dinner or suggest things to do while in Sedgefield and the surrounding areas. It was delightful to spend part of our stay at Dover on Sea. The views are wonderful.

We booked at Dover on Sea as a break in our bi-annual trip to Plettenberg Bay from Cape Town. And we are so glad we did. This will now be our stopover each time we make these trips. Outstanding location, outstanding rooms, outstanding views over the ocean and great hospitality. With a breakfast that matched everything else. It was just far too short to absorb what Dover has to offer so we might well extend our stays!

What an exceptional stay at Dover on Sea. Karen and Juergens are fantastic and gracious hosts and their property is beautiful in all aspects. The views cannot be beaten on the Garden Route. Regular sightings of dolphins frolicking in the waves in front of the property. Breakfasts were delicious and Juergens makes an amazing omelette. Also a quick and easy drive to all the attractions of Knysna. We have travelled the Garden Route extensively and this is certainly one of our favourite places. Don't hesitate. Just book. You will have the time of your life !

This is the most beautiful, serene place we could ever have imagined staying. Its takes the concept of bed and breakfast to a new level. The rooms are beautifully designed and decorated. The spaces almost seem in tune with themselves :-) You can lie in bed and enjoy panoramic views of the sea. Delicious breakfast and endless beaches to walk. We felt so nurtured. Thank you Karen and Jurgen for your warm hospitality. We hope to visit you again next year.
