Beautiful homestay facing the sea
Fantastic homestay on the route between PE and the garden route. Hosts are kind, friendly and helpful, gave us great reccomendations for the area and were kind enough to give us a lift too. They have designed the property beautifully and extremely stylishly. Breakfast is fantastic. Only negatives is that the curtains are thin and internet connection is weak.

A truly wonderful place to stay
This is one of those locations that would be called a "Hidden Gem". There was nothing about our stay that I could call less than excellent. The room was great, the hosts are fantastic and the breakfast was one of the best I've ever had at any location. The area is quiet and beautiful with a few good dining options.

Fantastic little treasure with super sea views. The little extra touches and attention to detail make this a must return place. The hosts are the reason Port Elizabeth is called the "friendly" city. We left feeling like we had new family friends.

Great place in Garden Route!
This is a small and special place to stay. The host was so friendly! Located right in front of the ocean and has a beautiful terrace with amazing views. The breakfast was delicious!

8/10 Very good

Aufmerksamkeit hoch 10 !
Unser Zimmer hatte eine Glasfront, so konnten wir vom Bett aus auf's Meer schauen! Sensationell! Zusätzlich eine Gastgeberin die was die Wünsche der Gäste betrifft, extrem aufmerksam ist! Man denkt eben noch "...wäre doch ganz schön wenn..." schon ist Sie da und weiß was fehlt, ohne dass man es ausgesprochen hat! Thanks a lot Margie!

Beste Tage in Südafrika
Da unser Reiseführer die Gegend nicht so ausführlich erwähnt hat, hatte wir hier keine so hohen Erwartungen an die Lage. Die direkte Strandlage des Hotels (Felsenstrand) und die beiden nicht zu weit entfernten einsem Sandstrände haben uns eines Besseren belehrt. Der Service und die persönliche Betreuung waren außerordentlich. Unserer Gastgeber hat uns sogar seine Boogiebords und seine eigenen Fahrräder geliehen während des Aufenthalts.

Top-Unterkunft am Meer
Ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt bei ganz freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern. Die beiden Zimmer, für uns und unseren Sohn, waren sehr groß und sehr gepflegt. Alles top in Schuss und direkt am Meer gelegen.Und das Frühstück wurde mit viel Liebe zubereitet, bestens!
