About
Discover Gqeberha’s most renowned seaside stay. Cape Recife Lighthouse Villa, occupying a landmark building within the Cape Recife Nature Reserve, is a great place to stay in Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) – truly one of the most romantic getaways in South Africa. We offer a most unique type of accommodation, close to all the major attractions of Port Elizabeth, so you can easily explore the city, while feeling a million miles away from it. The Eastern Cape, with its mild climate, renowned beauty and natural biodiversity is an outstanding destination rich with potential. Some 15 kilometres south of the pretty coastal city of Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha), at the southern point of Algoa Bay, is the 366 ha (900 acre) Cape Recife Nature Reserve, proclaimed in 1973. Untouched and little-known, the Reserve is an extraordinarily beautiful and elemental stretch of wild coastal space – one of the best beaches in South Africa.

    The most unique and at the same time private place to unwind
    We unfortunately only booked one night at the Villa and are already planning a longer stay for 5 nights... The outside of the Villa is a bit deceiving. It is 5 star inside!!! the rooms are nicely decorated! We really enjoyed the Lounge area with the most incredible beach view! We did book the accommodation with a private chef and enjoyed delicious dinner and breakfast made just for us. When we visit for a longer stay we would do self-catering. The kitchen is fully equipped. I went with my 3 year old son and a friend and her young daughter. The kids did not want to leave!! The location is just stunning stunning stunning!!

    Amazing lighthouse stay
    Always wanted to stay here! Magnificent views, beautiful decor, quiet and tranquil beaches to enjoy for walks and sunsets. Amazing sunset views from the top of the lighthouse. Very attentative staff that makes your stay even better. Close to town. Definitely a MUST on your bucketlist. Only thing i would change is the option to have 2 single beds in 1 of the rooms if needed.

    Heaven on earth
    Cape Recife villa is absolutely incredible! The views are stunning. This was the closes to heaven,I ever felt. The villa itself is beautifully decorated and equipped. The coffee was next level with this type of view. Ashwin and Annelize was amazing and surprise our kiddies with bubbles and a ball. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be visiting again soon. Highly recommended!

    A must-ad-to-your-bucket-list-stay🤩
    Our time at Cape Recife Luxury Villa was absolutely magical! Nestled along the beach, this hidden gem offers the best sunrise and sunset views we've ever experienced. Waking up to the gentle sound of the waves and watching the sun dip below the horizon in the evening was pure magic! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, making our stay even more enjoyable. If you're seeking a tranquil retreat with unparalleled beach views, Cape Recife Luxury Villa is the place to be. Our hearts are full after our weekend.

    The ultimate luxury escape
    If you are looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the place. A remote feeling of island living, yet having all the luxuries of home from top notch appliances, decor and linnen. Relax, unwind, take a dip in the beautiful blue ocean, sip some wine and enjoy some quality time. Thanks Loodt and team - we had a fantastic stay! We'll be back !

    The Perfect Honeymoon Escape
    The accommodation of the lighthouse villa was exceptional and extraordinary! It couldn't have been more perfect for our Honeymoon. Lin, the manager and host does an amazing job with her team at making sure all your needs are met and your stay is comfortable. Real value for money. The location and views from the villa are unparalleled. Definitely would recommend as a honeymoon or romantic destination with your partner - the whole team really went out of their way to make our stay as memorable and as special as possible.

It is the perfect relaxing villa, located directly next to a working light house. One can easily relax in the lounge and enjoy the view of ship lights in the distance during the evening with a glass of house wine.

We walked to the lighthouse from Summerstrand, it was a glorious day but the wind certainly whipped up as we neared the promontory. Views up and down the coast were amazing but the "sand blasting" from the wind meant we didn't venture right to the end

There is always something about lighthouses and this is very special. You can stay and enjoy morning sun and evening sunsets. It is absolutely stunning. I must visit.
