We chose Escape to the Beach because of its amazing location literally right on the beach. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the view both day and night was magnificent. The dining / lounge and social area is open plan and suited our needs perfectly. It is beautifully decorated, and luxurious. Sarie was the most gracious hostess and was on hand to ensure we had the most amazing time. Breakfasts were at another level, Sarie's baking is amazing and we were super spoilt in the mornings. Afternoons were spent on the beach, in the pool and later in the evening in front of the fire. I cannot recommend this beautiful guest house enough. Thank you Sarie for making it such a special getaway.

What a wonderful place in a wonderful location no one will be disappointed. Great location as the name suggest it looks directly over the beach and the wonderful Indian Ocean. Sonia is a fantastic hostess and nothing is too much trouble. Despite being inconvenienced by COVID-19 we had a great time there. I would highly recommend it hopefully when this nasty virus is over we will return.

We recently celebrated a close friends birthday at Escape to the Beach. What an unforgettable experience it was from the second we arrived to the last second we left. Sarie is a "super hostess" nothing is too much effort, she is always smiling and ready to go the extra mile for her guests. And can she bake and cook! Oh yes, her baking skills are out of this world. The guest house is beautifully and tastefully furnished and the owners have spared no expense in the finishings and the luxuries we enjoyed during our stay. The house is on the beach so we fell asleep to the crashing waves every night. I cannot recommended it any higher. I cannot wait to go back and stay longer... Thank you Sarie for a extra-ordinary stay. See you soon. Sonja Gunn

Incredibility situated right on the beach edge with the ocean. Escape to the Beach is immaculate, stylish, clean and comfortable. Sarie, Ray and the staff made our party destination beyond anything we could have imagined. Our every need taken care of before we had even thought it. We walked on the beach, swam in the heated pool, relaxed in the hot tub, putted away, had a braai, lay in the sun, and generally had the best time ever. Sarie even went beyond the call of duty and baked the most magnificent red velvet birthday cake. Breakfasts were beautifully presented, tasty, varied and even included homemade scones fresh out of the oven. Thank you Sarie for making this one of the best breakaways ever. We will be back.
