Dear Theunisia and Dean, We, Cobie, Amanda, Margriet, Jaap, Floor and myself, would like to thank you for your enormous hospitality during our visit to your premises in Jeffreysbay. Needless to say that we were very happy to have the opportunity and chance to stay with you and to learn you personally. We highly appreciate your kind assistance for guiding us through your lovely country. You gave us the special and necessary hints in order to make the right decisions and hence to avoid mistakes by crossing a foreign country. As you may conclude from this e-mail, we returned home safely and are looking forward to the final soccer match SPAIN- NETHERLANDS tomorrow. But regardless of all the lovely soccer matches, South-Africa has stolen our hearts and you as friends in particular Lovely and kindest regards from The Netherlands Cobie, Amanda, Margriet, Jaap, Floor, Piet Met vriendelijke groet, Piet Nell
I would like to thank the wonderful owners of Bay Cove for a great weekend. We were a group of 12….had a great relaxed time and excellent braai’s. We really enjoyed ourselves and it is a great establishment worthy of much more than two stars. The value for money can not be compared with any other place I have ever stayed in Jeffrey Bay or elsewhere in the country. Thank you very much. Love Camia and Barend and all the friends.
Hi Dean and Theunisia! We miss you guys. You made JBay a wonderful experience. We loved the surf, braiis, rugby and biltong, but we especially loved talking and hanging out with the two of you. Thanks again for making us feel like family. Tell Lee and Opa “hello” for us, and if you see Brandy on the beach, give him a squeeze
Dean and Suzie
Oh my… we miss you guys, Lee and our home away from home at BayCove. We can’t say it enough, out of our 5 week trip to South Africa, Bay Cove was the best. You guys are awesome and made our entire trip. Thanks for the kindness, the love, the comfort and most of all the laughs. If it didn’t take 20 hours of flying time to get there, we’d be back in a month!! Definitely need to be upgraded from 2 stars….
Laura & Chris Barkett
I Hey Guys! its Kristal from the KCS Africa Missions Trip Team. Thanks again for putting up with all us. You have a amazing place going on there, and i hope to see you guys again some day!
I would like to thank Dean and Theunisia , the owners of the Bay Cove Inn for making my family’s stay in J-Bay incredible. Your charming accommodation was the best of the garden route. My family and I enjoyed not only your clean and welcoming site, but found the hospitality that your family provided a much needed blessing on our travels. We will be back…..and I can’t wait. Alaska is cold and we miss your climate.
Christopher,Miriam and Baby Jonas
Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Ryan and I were very sad to leave, as we felt like we were leaving family.Dean and Theunisia, you guys were fantastic hosts and friends and really made us feel welcome. We have already recommended you to all of our friends and family. We’ll see you soon.
Regards Ryan Kay and Tarryn Mason
I’m Stefano, the Italian guest you so kindly transported all over Port Elizabeth to the eye specialists. We’d like to say thank you again for everything you and Theunisia did for me and my family, while I was ill. We are back home and we are working at our surf shop. We spent a lot of time in South Africa (until February 14). I hope everything is going well by you. My eye was OK from the day I left your accommodation. I will promote your place and friendship all over Italy.
Stefano, Marzia, Alice & Mattia
For our first time in South Africa, i dont think we could have found a better place to stay. The hospitality was great. It had such a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Would definatly recommend any one to join Dean and Theunisia, for a great time. Thanks again, guys.. Take care xo
We had a real holiday experience! We were really impressed with our hosts, their warmth, and hospitality (we are also in the hospitality industry). We came as guests, but left as very good friends! a Very comfortable stay, clean, and with everything nearby, two lovely people and Lee that made our stay unforgettable!

Great place to stay in J-bay, would definitely recommend it. Best place we stayed during our time in South Africa. Dean & Theunisia were great hosts and gave us loads of info on SA. Thanks guys!
– Ciara & Donncha
What a lovely experience! From arrival, throughout our stay, personal service from the lovely hosts Dean and Theunisia was the order of the day. Thanx guys! !The relaxed atmosphere, outstanding breakfast and Saturday night braai all contribute to one wanting to go back again and again. We arrived as GUESTS, and left as FRIENDS.

Our stay in bay cove inn is unforgettable. Dean and Theunisia told us so many interesting stories that impressed us very much. They also cared us for three days when we got sick, like our mama would have done. Thanks a lot for the very warm stay!!

Hi Dean,Theunisia, OUMA en OUPA. Ek sien uit om elke maand Jeffreysbaai toe te gaan , al moet ek werk. Ek ontspan en geniet Bay Cove Inn verskriklik baie, nie net is die eienaars fantasties nie maar Bay Cove Inn is verskriklik mooi , netjies en skoon. Ek is jammer ek rate julle nou net 5 sterre want julle is baie meer werd as dit.
We as a family will always support Bay Cove, we have visited them for two years running and will return this year again. Bay Cove is clean at all times: we are made comfortable. Dean and Theunisia are friendly and treat us as part as their family. we have so much fun with other guests, we braai together and also we all contribute to a Christmas lunch. Bay Cove Inn for us is the best holiday place to stay.

For me and my boyfriend it was our first trip to South Africa and we learn to love it. Especially our trip to Bay Cove Inn will never be forgotten!!! It is such a lovely place to stay and after a shorttime you think that you belong to the family. Dean & Theunisia were one of the most friendly people we met during our trip. Dean & Theunisia: Thank you so much not only for all good advices where to go, but as well for learning more about your country. Staying at Bay Cove Inn is definitely a “must” on your way at the Garden Route and we will be back for sure if we have the possibility to visit SA once again.
Bay Cove Inn is a wonderful place to relax, be yourself and have a great time…. since 2005 I have called it my second home!!! Dean And Theunisa are so down to earth and they make you feel so welcome!!! My only request is that you as guests make this your next get away place, you wont regret it.
This was our most enjoyable holiday in years. Just the atmosphere and the people make it the place to be. The host and hostess are one of a kind. I can really recommend Bay Cove Inn to everybody that really needs a break. You will be spoiled.
– Klasie & Magda Venter
Bay Cove Inn provides the perfect blend of privacy and company. We felt welcome by Dean and Theunisia at all times but we were also relaxed enough to walk around the Inn like we were at home. Beautiful rooms and wonderful people!
Our family spent our holiday during December 2006 & January 2007 at Bay Cove Inn and to say this place is a “home away from home” is an understatement. Any visitor to JBay – Bay Cove Inn is a definate must. We felt part of the family, nothing was to much trouble and they have friendly manner that can not be matched. Our kids loved their new made friend “Lee”, she is the family Pet, child and friend to all. After leaving Bay Cove we all felt sad, as our time spent with Dean, Theunisia & Family was an unforgetable experiance. Thank you guys for everything, we will be back and send some more Gautengers your way…
Good luck for the future and may all your dreams come true, we know you will make a success of “Bay Cove Inn”.
– The Bone Family
This was one of the nicest experiences we had. The people are friendly and very helpfull. This was the first time we went to the Eastern Cape for a holiday and we were very impressed. Dean and Theunisia are the coolest couple we have ever met and I think we are going to be friends for a very long time. Thank you Dean and Theunisia for making us feel so at home!! We will deffinitely make this an annual trip to Bay Cove Inn.
– Izak & Zaan
My husband and I have spent Easter weekend here for the past two years and will always return each year as the atmosphere and friendliness cannot be beaten any where else in JBay. The owners are hospitable and always concerned about ones welfare. The comfort offered is wonderful as well as the breakfasts. It is always sad to say goodbye when we leave. Thanks Dean & Nissie. You are both wonderful and we love you for your friendliness, compassion and concern. My Bay Cove Inn go from strengh to strength.

Hi Dean and Theunisia
Just a quick thank you for our lovely stay at Bay Cove in and all your advice regarding our Garden Route Trip. On your advice, we had a lovely night at Tsitisikama,(excuse all spelling), another at Plettenberg, Sedgefield and then Blouberg Strand.
A great trip overall. Thanks again
Dave and Elmarie
Hi you two,
just to say our stay at Jeffries Bay will never be forgotten thanks to our stay at “Bay Cove Inn”. Such a friendly welcome made our holiday in SA unforgettable. Thanks again. We hope to pay another visit sometime soon, all the way from Switzerland.
-Mark and Ute
We have had many Holidays both Internationally and Local, but the holiday we had this past December at Bay Cove Inn was the most memorable and enjoyable stay we have ever had. The Host and Hostess of this Lovely place are just so warm and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for them. We left there very sadly at the end of our holiday. A place to highly recommend and not forget your stay with them. I would personally rate them 10 out of 10. We will definitely be returning there this coming December 2007, and this time for even a longer stay. – Patrick and Maureen Jones
