    I had the pleasure of staying only 1 night (unfortunately), the experience from beginning to end surpassed my expectations. Louise is a most fabulous hostess, the apartment was superb, and the breakfast was an amazing experience. I would definitely stay again, anytime!!!!

    Trully a home away from home. Although the weather wasn't ideal, thanks to the homely accommodation and attentive host, even the little ones had fun during our entire stay. Definely on top of the list for another visit to Port Alfred.
