Welcome to Brenton on Sea Cottages.

We would like to ensure that your stay is as comfortable and memorable as possible.

So…..!! :
Let your hair hang down
Get rid of your shoes
Rest your weary mind
And enjoy!!!!!

When I got word that this piece of paradise was for sale, all sleep took a backseat until the property was registered and secured for generations to come.

To quote the famous cliché “One life – Live it “

Some places in this world are just irreplaceable and beautiful.

Brenton on Sea with its spectacular views, unspoiled beach and dramatic sunsets, will send you home with unforgettable memories.

We feel so privileged to share all this with you!!!

Fortunately for us we inherited a team with the resort that was totally bought into the resort, and the service levels expected from them.
Since date of registration in October 2004 we experienced a minimal turnover of staff. Any visitor can expect and enjoy the services of our experienced team.

Our whole team was devastated after the recent tragedy, where 13 of the 21 chalets of our resort was destroyed by a fire that raged through the greater Knysna area on the 7th of June 2017. True to their character they met the challenge of rebuilding and upgrading our resort head-on. From devastated people with dull eyes, they are beaming with pride and enthusiasm when we did planning and watched our resort rise again!

We trust you will enjoy your stay with us.

Thank you,

  • The Knysna Oyster Festival is one of the most popular annual events in the Western Cape. It is a celebration of the good life, with sport and oysters as its focus points. The festival has taken place every year since 1983, where it began as the Knysna Winter Festival - a combination of sport that drew people to Knysna during the quiet winter season. This year we celebrate the 36th Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival. Marketed as the 'Best 10 Days of Your Winter', the Knysna Oyster festival is spread across two weekends that promise constant fun and activities for the whole family. The sport aspect of the Oyster Festival has evolved into two major sporting events - the Momentum Knysna Cycle Tour, and the Momentum Knysna Forest Marathon. The event has grown to include more than 100 individual events, which caters for all ages and tastes. Get in on the action and don’t miss out this year!
