Very clean,which is not something I say easily. I loved every minute. Was sad to leave because Veronica makes you feel like family. The views were spectacular. The accommodation caters to all your needs. Lovely kitchenette, spacious bathroom, very safe and beautifully peaceful . The perfect getaway spot.

This is the second time we have stayed here and wouldn't choose any other on the Garden Route. Nothing is too much to expect or ask of Veronica and her excellent staff. Rooms are huge and superb. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

What a lovely experience my husband brought me here for my birthday, the location is easy to find. We were greeted by our friendly host Veronica. The Place is majestic over looking the ocean at Brenton on sea . At first sight the balcony area reminded me of the "The Aladin" movie it's so breathtakingly beautiful. We spent hours by the pool and it's so quiet and peaceful. We were also able to bring our puppy with as the place is pet friendly so for me that was the highlight as I was not prepared to spend my December with out him. For those of you who love eating it is fully self catering. One days stay is just not enough. I'm so grateful this place still exists and Brenton has recovered and majority of the places still stands after the fire . It's a stay that will stay in your heart forever.

Our stay at Papillon Bleu was magnificent. The rooms are beautiful and well equipped. There is a stunning ocean view and a breathtaking sunset can be experienced every evening. The hostess is incredibly helpful and friendly. There is a beach nearby, and the town's people are also friendly. Certainly one of the best self-catering accommodations I've visited.
