Ocean front luxury
My wife and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at 185 on the Beach. The Starlight Suite is spacious, well-appointed and opens up to a beautiful view just a stone’s throw from the shoreline. The bathroom is humongous and features a large jetted tub plus a very nice glass-surround shower. The property is very nice, the staff is friendly and attentive, and there’s a pretty decent restaurant/bar just a short walk away.

Amazing Stay-Thank You Jeanette & Richard
We had an amazing stay at 185 on Beach in Gordon’s Bay! Our room had lovely views from seals in the bay, to a beautiful beach and some of the most gorgeous sunsets. Our room had everything we needed and the bed was oh so comfortable. Jeanette is a wonderful host, and We appreciated her recommendations in the area. Grant also enjoyed his conversation with Richard, and we both loved learning about Richard’s incredible career. Thank you both for sharing the history and beauty of South Africa!

Beautiful Overnight Stay
I had the most beautiful stay while on a business trip. I was accommodated in what I could only describe the executive honeymoon suit. Supreme luxury beyond any other place I have ever stayed in. Beautiful views, great location, friendly staff and a delectable breakfast. I will sure be back for a leisure stay.

What a beautiful establishment! We loved staying here – from the moment we walked into the hotel, we knew this was going to be a great holiday.The staff is very helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. And what a blessing to wake up every morning and see the waves breaking from our balcony whilst having coffee. There is breathtaking views from the communal areas as well. We will definitely recommend this lovely place to our friends and family and return there for another holiday.

This hidden gem in Gordon’s Bay will blow you away with its beautiful views of False Bay, Bikini Beach and the old harbour – the bedrooms are impeccable with charming touches such as roses and beverages. Most suites are conveniently kitted out with a fridge and facilities for longer stays. The bed is so comfortable you will not want to leave – ever! One can go to sleep with the door opening up onto the ocean listening to the waves all night long. Jeanette, Richard and their team care deeply for their guests and put their hearts into their business. Their staff will crawl into your hearts instantly – what special human beings work at this beautiful bed and breakfast! We cant wait to visit again in the future! Its a must do for anyone visiting the Cape Town or Stellenbosch area.

Stayed in Seaside Penthouse for final 2 days after 2 week holiday in SA. The views of Gordon’s Bay were fantastic from 2 balconies. Sunsets were great and having breakfast whilst watching a pod of dolphins was an unexpected treat. Braai was good. Comfortable beds with 5 star decor
