The bedroom was of top quality with all the essentials provided and with a lovely view of the sea, especially from the balcony. We have seen the humpback whales breaching in the distance :). The breakfast room also has a lovely view of the sea. The breakfast was wonderful and very fulfilling, giving you the energy for the day. There's... More

We spent a night at Dana Bay B&B on our way from Cape Town to Knysna and we have been delighted by the friendly welcoming of our hosts, helped by their valuable advising on what to do and what to skip and the delicious homemade breakfast that we enjoyed with this amazing view over the ocean. Sad to leave but... More

The location is perfect with a great view of the sea and fynbos. Ronell and Quenton made us feel very welcome and accommodated our late check in after we had some delays in our trip. We enjoyed the breakfast with great morning views over the bay. I would definitely come back.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a leg of our Garden Route trip - our room was on the top floor with lovely views out to sea. The property is spacious and nicely furnished, if a little old fashioned. Dana Bay is around the coast from Mossel Bay and is very quiet - there's nothing there except... More

A beautiful Guest house! Greeted by Ronell and Quintin at the front door and felt like a long lost friend coming home. Our room was lovely and the sound of waves softly breaking, ease our tense nerves after the long drive. We were especially impressed by the fine touches to detail in our room and the rest of the quest... More

Warm and inviting hospitality from our hosts, Quinton and Ronell. Room and bathroom extremely neat, clean and well equipped. Delicious breakfasts cooked to perfection. We had stunning views of the ocean from our room and the dining area. Highly recommended. We will definitely return.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our current trip to SA. Nice room with comfy bed, nice bathroom which really is all you need. Furnishing wise it's like staying at your grannies with lots of dark wood antique pieces. Ronnel is very mumsie and wants to ensure that you have a great stay. Breakfast cooked by Quinton was nice but... More
