Breakfast is amazing with Anita's homemade muffins and lovely fresh fruit salads adding the finishing touches. It was so nice to stay in a safe place without having bars at...

A good stay in Jeffreys Bay with some lovely service. Very tough to give full marks due to pool maintenance which was out of our control and the manager's as well, but this was outweighed by the manager's great service. A quirky little room but I enjoyed something a little bit different.

Dolphin View was easy to book - the owner was exceptionally helpful prior to my coming. I asked about mountain biking routes and trails, and she phoned me back later to tell me about a race that weekend, and that their were trails etc. Clearly found out on my behalf. What service! Easy to find, well laid out, clean and...

WE booked in for an overnight stay at DVGH simply because it was close to where we wanted to be the next day. We wished we could have stayed a few days more. The hostess Anita is jewel, her attention to detail and quality breakfast will have us coming back again. Dr Danny Liebenberg and wife Antoinette

The owner is available for assistance and so is the lady which is helping there and she is very friendly. Please keep up the excellent service. The service is client orientated and that is what I really liked.

This Guesthouse has spacious accommodation in a lovely setting with far reaching coastal views. We had the guest suite which provided a large bedroom, lounge, lovely open plan bathroom and large terrace with sea views and the indoor pool was just outside the bedroom door. It was superb.
