I stayed at 185 on Beach for a business trip during level 4 restrictions when all the restaurants where still closed. The rooms are well equipped to enable you to prepare your own dinner and still enjoy a class of water... (Covid rules). We enjoyed very spacious rooms with beautiful views of the bay. Will definitely go back but hopefully not for a business trip...

Property's Favourite Review
We have just returned from our extended stay at 185 on Beach and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy 27 nights of sheer bliss. The location alone would make this a 5* rating but if you add in the brilliant accommodation, the friendly staff, warm welcome and ongoing focus on making sure everything is the best it can be then you really can’t do better than staying here. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and this continued throughout our stay. Many people we met were returning guests who all confirmed that this place is a gem. The location in Gordon’s Bay is perfect for exploring the Western Cape area, close to Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Hermanus and everywhere in between. Thank you to Jeanette and all the staff for making our first visit to South Africa one that we won’t forget and we are already planning our return visit.

Ah Gillian! Sometimes guests creep into our hearts and we honestly hope they will return, not for the financial benefit, but also because this business offers us the opportunity of making new friends (even though they teased me on Face Book - Ha! Ha!) We admire how you took advantage of the many adventures and activity to make your month-long stay full of surprises. We wish you so much happiness ... and look forward to welcoming you again soon! Best wishes Jeanette

This was as close to perfect as a vacation can be. Everything was perfect. The view from your bed at night was something that movies are made off. There were a restaurant and Pub close by. The towel railings and the tiles in the bathroom was heated. There was a lot of thought put into everything. There was even a small gas operated webber braai on the balcony. It was just lovely. I did not want to leave.

Jeanette and her staff is the perfect hosts for business trips away from home. Rooms are big and airy, views are to sit and relax for hours staring at the sea. Well done, like always I enjoyed my stay immensely.
