The Oyster Box Beach House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2017

This review is long overdue. What a beautiful house! Wish it was mine! The decor, the outside area, the short walk to the beach... everything was perfect. We also enjoyed the town itself. Sarah was a great host and took care of everything. Kids loved the breakfast and it was nice to share the table with the other guests. Gave us the chance to exchange tips on where to go/what to see. Book it, you will love it!

Room Tip: Both floors are spectacular! Doesn't matter which one you choose.

We had a fantastic stay at the oyster box beach house. We came to relax, unwind and getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big cities and this place did exactly that. We felt rehabilitated and restored in body, mind and spirit.

The house was exactly as shown in the photographs. We spent some days cooped up in the luxurious room which had an amazing river and ocean view, while other days we explored the lovely quaint little town that is Kenton on sea.

The breakfast offering was quite impressive and i must say that the ladies at the house know how to treat their guests.

Kenton on sea has amazing scenic views with magnificent rocky and sandy beaches. We had a lovely time at the Kusini spa and had great food at the local cafe's and restaurants. We also went horse riding on the beach which was wonderful to say the least.

Its definitely been one of our favorite vacations. We will definitely be back.

What a wonderful long weekend we have just enjoyed in Kenton-on-sea at The Oyster Box Beach House. The photos on the website are amazing but nothing can do justice to the experience in real life. This has to rank as one of my favourite places in South Africa.

The views from the house itself are spectacular and we watched some amazing sunsets from the comfort of the patio. A short walk takes you down onto the beach at the Bushman's River where we enjoyed an evening picnic, watching yet another amazing sunset!

We were also crazy enough to wake up at 5.30am one morning to walk to Shelley Beach to watch the sunrise and then hurry back home to enjoy a welcoming cup of coffee while gazing out once again at the spectacular view.

The house itself is luxuriously furnished with everything you need and more. It is serviced daily and I must say a big thank you to Shona for her hard work making the beds and cleaning each day. It is truly a home away from home. Thank you too John, for your friendly smile! And lastly, thank you Sarah, for allowing us to accommodate one extra child.

We really did not want to leave and cannot wait to come back again. Its a special place!

An absolute treat to stay in the most luxurious house with the most magnificent view in Kenton. It has great accommodation - all rooms are spacious and are beautifully decorated . The open plan living space opens out onto a lovely outdoor patio and pool with the view. The kitchen is beautifully equipped for your every need. It's very difficult to leave and definitely one that you'll go back to again and again.

Dear Sarah,
The only negative thing was we didn't stay longer with you ... we pack too much in the day before and arrived too late, then an amazing breakfast and off to the next adventure... crazy we will stay longer next time ...
Thank you for your well appointed house, excellent service and for accommodating our late check in ...
Best regards Sara and Paul
