More about us

  1. We are Hilary and Basil. We have had a holiday home in Brenton for over 20 years. We have three adult daughters. From the minute we set eyes on Brenton we have had a deep love for it and the area. It is a great pleasure for us to share our home with our family and friends. We are both professionals and now that our children are independent we wish to travel more including visiting our youngest daughter who lives in the UK. As we live in Johannesburg we are happy to host visitors passing through to our holiday home and to help them plan the rest of their holiday.

Where is it?


Brenton's beautiful white sandy beaches are our pride and joy so it is obvious to do the beach thing - swim in the sea, lie on the beach and soak up the sun (don't forget the sunscreen). Clamber up the rocks, explore the rock pools, walk the cliff paths and the lovely long main beach which stretches for five kilometers all the way to Buffels bay, where one can enjoy breakfast, tea and scones or an ice cream at the seaside restaurant. Dolphins and whales (seasonal) may be spotted from the shore or our house balcony. Kmysna, our closest town is a scenic 14Km drive away, passing Lake Brenton, Belvedere and many a good restaurant. Knysna is a picturesque lagoonside town where one can stock up with provisions, shop, eat out, visit museums and art galleries view and partake in the many tourist attractions. Knysna is the heart of the famous Garden Route close to beautiful forests, mountains, lakes, many spectacular golf courses. Many festivals happen throughout the year and and there are several regular markets. There are fun opportunities in all seasons and for all ages and types from adrenalin junkies to those who just wish to opt out of the hustle and bustle of daily life.
