We had an enjoyable time at Greystones, thank you very much.

We must commend you on the neat and well-maintained property. Yolam was very friendly and eager to assist (5 stars from us).

We are not very fussy when we travel as long as the amenities and what was promised on the website was available. We will definitely be visiting again

A Dream House

Everything! It's extremely well equipped, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need, from filtered tap water to an extra bar fridge, even ice buckets. And if you love braaing, the braai area is a dream. The massive lawn is fantastic and the kids had a ball. And of course they loved the beach, just a step away. Yolam, the House Manager, is a pleasure to deal with and is friendly, helpful and efficient.

Our stay at Greystones was absolutely perfect in every way! 

Due to the age of the children 2,4 & 6, the fact that there were no stairs, no swimming pool and a fully enclosed garden made it very relaxing for the parents and the grandparent of course! With the beach just through the gate it was just so easy.  Yolam was a star and nothing was ever too much trouble and always a pleasant, smiling demeanour.

We will definitely love to go back to Greystones and both my daughters want to visit with their friends.  

I cannot believe how much Langebaan has grown and loved being able to walk to restaurants and shops from Greystones.

Excellent – not a bad word I could say about the condition of the house and Yolam’s service. As a group we go away at least twice a year, every year and everyone agreed this was by far the best place we’ve stayed at, while still being a reasonable price!

Greystones was the perfect spot for a relaxing family holiday! The house was comfortable, well equipped and perfectly located. The icing on the cake was house keeper Yolam, he went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the best it could be!

We had a splendid week at Greystones. Nothing to report. Yolam is a delight and everything was perfect, even the electricity shortcomings didn't matter as you had the camping stove which was brilliant. Thanks again for having us. We hope you are keeping well. 

The house was spotlessly clean and Yolam was as attentive as ever.

We had a memorable time at Greystones, we couldn't have stayed at a better place for reuniting with family and friends. Some visitors appeared to be keen on also making future reservations.

Yolam was very hospitable and provided excellent service. Everything was in order, so there was nothing that we considered needed be addressed.

We would love to return again, hopefully our daughters and their husbands would then be able to join us.

On behalf of all 7 of us I would like to thank you and Yolam for a most amazing stay. Your home is beautiful and Yolam was most attentive, funny and gracious throughout our stay. 

I would like to reassure you that we found all facilities in good working order. The shower in the right wing (as you enter the house) worked very well and we had no problems with temperature or pressure. I understand the shower in the left wing had a cut out when cold was turned on first, but restarted again when hot was turned on first. 

 Under no circumstances did this affect our stay at all. After all, every home has it’s quirks right? So from our point of view it did not affect the quality of our stay. 

I will be recommending you to all my overseas ex-pats doing the same as I have done, doing family gatherings when we visit the Motherland. 

Warm Regards, Celehte Fortuin

We really loved every minute of our stay at Greystone Beach House.  We adore the house!  There is honestly nothing that I can put my finger on that we can complain about. And Yolam is such a nice guy!

We felt truly spoilt and had SUCH A GOOD time at Greystones! Although it was a busy 2 days celebrating an 80th family birthday, it felt like a holiday. Wish we could take in more of the beautiful setting.

Yolam was a great host and very friendly and helpful. The house is so well equipped – it's got everything you need and more. We can recommend Greystones without hesitation.

My husband and I had our wedding at Greystones Beach House and were welcomed with open arms. We came to find a well maintained and absolutely stunning guesthouse. Ourselves and our families will surely have treasured memories from our weekend and we thank you so much for helping us create our happily ever after. Whenever we visit Langebaan there is no other place we would want to stay.

Our family has very fond memories of our weekend at Greystones. It was a privilege to stay there and we thank you for that opportunity. The house has a special charm and the attention to detail really made it feel like home from home. Thanks also to Yolam for looking after us during our stay. Greystones Beach House is highly recommended and we look forward to stay there again in future.

Dear Gretta
Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful, well cared-for home with us. We enjoyed the feeling of seclusion and privacy provided by the hedges and trees surrounding the property. The spacious house and stoep/braai areas allowed everyone in our party the space they needed for quiet study, leisurely reading or exciting, noisy foosball games. Direct access to the beach was a bonus and Ryk’s Gate was used very frequently. Your house was the perfect base for our fishing, running, cycling and kayaking expeditions. We will certainly recommend your house very highly to family and friends. I’d like to add that the entire booking process was friendly and professional throughout. Thank you, once again.

Just a quick BIG thank you for our stay at Greystones Beach House.
All we can say is WOW. From the position of the property, the facilities in the house and the actual house, we were totally blown away.
We then met Yolam and that just made our stay even better. He is a true asset to your guest house and his warm friendly manner is so welcoming.
We could not have asked for more and I have recommended your house to many friends already and so has my parents.
I think we have decided we will definitely be back as it was not long enough. The kids would like to also do all the activities in the area so it is a definite firm decision to come back!
In fact we actually asked when we were there to see if anyone was arriving the day we left to see if we could extend!

Dear Gretta
Firstly can I just say what a wonderful time we having at your gorgeous place!
I will definitely recommend Greystones to family and friends.
And Yolam is fantastic.

One has to be careful when visiting Greystones Beach House because it is one of those magical places that can easily ruin all other holiday destinations. The house is spacious and comfortably furnished, comes with a very helpful “butler” and is positioned on the beach and close to the main strip. Very close. Aside from the space, the comfort and the views there is also something else. There is a sense of happy history. Sitting on that magnificent stoep you can easily imagine the generations of kids and families who spent their glorious holidays there. It truly is a blessing to add one’s own positive vibes to the many others that rest so gently in the foundations of this wonderful house. We shall certainly be back.

We spent a fantastic & relaxing weekend at Greystones blowing away the lock-down blues. Thanks Gretta for a really comfortable stay in such a lovely home...and ably hosted by Yolam. I think we timed it with one of the few "3 day sun" intervals this winter, which made it that much more special. Highly recommended!

We really have nothing to complain about.

My younger daughter Tanya’s first remark was…..thank goodness we have lovely, decent bath towels! Bianca and Jacques both said…..wow, wow, wow!!

Yolam (the housekeeper) is a gem. He is well spoken, friendly and very professional.

My sister-in-law and her son loved the house and the history of the house (both being in art, design and decorating).

I would have loved to stay longer as we really enjoyed the house. I will definitely tag Greystones Beach house in photos and tell all our friends about Greystones.

Once again, thank you that we could use your lovely home for Bianca’s nuptials.

Marthie van Aswegen, March 2020

Hope to come back soon

A beautiful spot to stay in the most perfect location. You couldn’t ask for anything better. Incredible hosts and friendly staff just add to the experience. Will definitely be back in the future.

Best place I have ever stayed
Wow wow and wow, this place exceeded my expectations completely. Warm and wonderful, classy, gorgeous and mind blowing, every need catered for. Only a privilege to have stayed here. We visit Langebaan on a regular basis and it's always a mission to find what we looking for. I have found my happy place, will not stay anywhere else ever again. Greystones is the absolute PERFECT home. Love it.

Thank you for a lovely week in a very beautiful house with an amazing atmosphere. Right on the beach, serviced by an impeccable Yolam, a perfect family place, especially for little ones. A perfect birthday with family.Walking distance to shops and restaurants. We loved it!

What an amazing experience, from beginning to end. Thank you Gretta for giving us the opportunity to stay in this beautiful beach house. The service and friendliness from Yolam, the view from the stoep, walking distance from shops & restaurants and the 5 star accommodation, will be hard to find somewhere else. See you soon.

Letitia Koltzow, December 2018 - January 2019


Highly recommended!
Greystones is tastefully furnished and equipped. The glassed in veranda/braai area is a winner! We were 4 couples and had a wonderful 2 nights. Yolam is a great housekeeper and made our stay seamless. Direct access to the beach a feature.

Bill Stephens, September 2018

We were hosted by Gretta who was very pleasant to deal with before our stay. Although we did not meet her, we were greeted by Yolam who was friendly and kind and always available throughout our stay for any questions we had. We were a group of seven adults (four of whom were visiting South Africa for the first time) and we were after a beachside getaway for 2 nights to relax. What a prefect place to do just that! The house was clean, beautifully decorated and so charming. The view of the water and sunset was priceless. The location to town very easy walking distance. I would not hesitate in recommending Greystones, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute!

Emma S, February 2018


Perfect in all ways!!
What a wonderful weekend we had at Greystones. It was beyond perfect and so much more. The house was spotless and the 'stoep' or veranda is just what you dream about on a weekend away. Comfortable, stylish but not pretentious with the beach steps away. We spend hours just watching the birds and the colorful kites. I will without hesitation highly recommend this home. As I say perfect.... and Yolam, the housekeeper is a true gentleman. Thank you so much

Did not want to leave!
We have just enjoyed THE most perfect family holiday. The idyllic location - right on the beach and easy strolling distance to many restaurants, made for SUCH a restful and relaxing time. Add to this a real "home from home" - perfectly equipped in every way and you get a PERFECT holiday. My kids moaned ALL the way home - they didnt want to leave!

This was our second visit. A beautiful home, well stocked kitchen, lovely furniture. We loved the stoep and braai area. Wonderful that Yolam was available to clean the bathrooms and empty dustbins.

"We loved it and we'll be back!")
July 2017. Greystones Beach House was the perfect spot for our family to get together. The well equipped kitchen gave us all we needed to create great meals! The all day fire in the lounge kept us warm and cosy and having the beach to walk and talk and catch up was everything we needed. Thank you to Yolam for his gracious service.

Pure bliss!
Our recent stay at Greystones was pure bliss. This guest house has the luxury of a hotel, but with the conveniences of a self-catering apartment. The apartment was well equipped, and immaculately cared for. We loved the location, my kids played for hours on the grass and beautiful beach sunset walks were just a few steps away. It was very cold while we were there and the attention to heating was amazing. We could still enjoy sunsets and patio barbecues thanks to the enclosed glass doors, and we were kept warm indoors by a fireplace and a heater in each room. Yolum was a gracious host, always on hand to help us, but also discreet enough to allow us privacy. We would love to return to Greystones in the future. Thank you for a lovely stay!

A 'Jewel in the Crown'
From the moment we arrived, Yolam, our housekeeper looked after us perfectly. A wonderful welcome, relaxed and reassuring, he introduction us to the house, equipment and the area. Greystones is such a wonderful house, beautifully presented, perfectly situated next to the beach and a stones throw from the shops, bars & restaurants. The sea is cold but not by British standards :-) and all the family had fun on the clean and for the best part, empty beach. We were six adults and two children in our party and the house never felt overcrowded. We all wish to return some time soon - Highly recommended.
