Heidi and family have created an incredible space at the back of their beautiful property, with four elegantly appointed rooms with queen beds. Each room as a small outdoor area, but we stayed in the room right at be back of the property, which has a larger outdoor area. Heidi accommodated our two Toy Pom dogs by installing a gate the day before our visit so that they could stay with us. This was one of the ways she went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.

We stayed for two nights and on both nights made use of the fire pit on a deck area overlooking the pool and beautiful garden. The property is walking distance from the beach. Heidi also made some great suggestions of places to visit within driving distance, which we wouldn’t have known about. Breakfast can either be served at the room for privacy, or beside the pool if sharing with friends or family.

I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a hospitable stay in East London near the beach. This was honestly one of the best places I have ever stayed at.

Everything was great. Nothing to fault.

Rooms spacious and beds comfortable. Bathroom was spotlessly clean, enjoyed the shower.

Breakfast was delicious and served in the room. There are coffee and tea making facilities.

Safe parking available.

The host is very friendly.

I could not ask for anything more in a guesthouse. The décor, the breakfast, the comfortable bed, the linen, the bathroom with all the bells and whistles, the facilities in the room - bar fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee, cups, glasses, teaspoons,water, milk. Heidi and Duane have thought of and seen to everything you could possibly think of to make your stay comfortable, painless and easy. Even chatting to them while they serve you your delicious breakfast makes you feel like they're old family friends. We were centrally located from where we needed to be. The guesthouse was easy to find using Google maps and only 20 minutes away from the airport. The warm welcome and friendly smiles that greeted us were just the start of the excellent time we spent in East London. Definitely the place to stay when in town. Thank you so much guys for your hospitality.
