“A most beautiful stay”

We had the pleasure of staying with Jurgens and Karen during our recent visit to Sedgefield. We chose Dover by the Sea for its ocean views, and we were not disappointed. The view was spectacular, and the waves could be heard crashing in the night, with a lovely view of the sunset in the evening from the balcony or back verandah.

Equally beautiful was the bed and breakfast itself, a beautifully restored home with character and comfort. The touch of Jurgens and Karen, the home as well as the couple are most welcoming. We enjoyed the company of our hosts, through a lovely breakfasts and a delicious and fun braii dinner. They even accompanied us to the local market (a must do!) for breakfast on Saturday and packed us a delicious breakfast for the road when we had to leave early on Sunday morning.

My husband and I traveled as a couple to Sedgefield, but we would recommend Dover by the Sea to any travelers. It is a lovely place, run by wonderful people, in a beautiful little town by the sea. We cannot wait to go back!

“Fantastic place to stay.”

Karen and Jurgens are great hosts. Their B&B is located in an amazing house with a breathtaking view on the ocean. We have seen all the rooms, which are all great. But go for room 1 or 2. Not only ocean view but also your own private deck. Next time we will stay for the braai. All the best with your B&B. We would also recommend staying in Sedgefield in stead of a more touristic place like Knysna. Sedgefield has a beautiful and very quit beach and all other places are within driving distance.

“Relaxing stay in a luxury laid back atmosphere next to the sea”

We had a lovely stay in Dover on sea. This B & B is right next to the beach and you just feel relaxed in a luxury laid back atmosphere. The hosts Karen and Jurgens welcomed us very warmly, they made this stay special.

It has been a long time since I have stayed in such luxury and also with undoubtably the most spectacular view EVER ! The hospitality from Jurgens and Karen is unsurpassed. Thank you so much for allowing me to share in your little patch of Heaven. I will most certainly be back....

“more than fantastic”

A house everybody who loves the ocean would like to call it, HOME. great location , direct on the ocean over cliffs. beautiful view and a nice sound of the waves. the owners Karen and Jurgens are excellent hosts and decorated the home a very luxurious style. great breakfast and optional dinner with the hosts possible and to recommend, since professional home cooking can be offered. Sedgefield itself is save small town , located very nicely between Wilderness and Knysna with a a huge beach. for us the most beautiful place on garden route.

“If you come here, you don't want to leave!”

We were meet by the smiling hostes, Karen, on our arrival. She was extremely friendly and made us feel very, very welcome. We got a fantastic room with a view you can only dream of, with the Cola Beach and the Indian Ocean just in front of you. Our intention was to stay 1 night, but at this place its not possible. You just have to take another night at least if possible. The second night we joined a Braai together with the hosts Karen and Jurgens and friends with interesting discussions in a very good athmosphere. We have already discussed when we can go back again.

“Top notch!”

This evening topped our trip to South Africa. Karen an Jurgens shared their Braai and good stories with us and gave us a broader understanding of this mighty, proud country. The house was lovely and the view spectacular. I only hope a lot of people Get to share this.



“FAVOURITE b&b we ever stayed at! GREAT people”

We had the best honeymoon and holiday experience in sedgefield, came in as strangers, left as friends. Thank you Karen & Jurgens(x2) ! Will definitely go back again. Fantastic view of the sea! Close to all the other attractions without the rush of people around you.



What a lovely place!
