Our first visit to The Sunshine Coast but hopefully not our last. Port Alfred is situated on one of the most naturally beautiful coastlines we have seen and the lovely Marina with a myriad of shops and eateries is captivating. We settled into the laid back life style of the Eastern Cape very easily.

The Beach House is in a front line position and the views from our bedroom were simply mesmerising - over the rolling sand dunes to the sea. Bedrooms , breakfast room and lounge are all naturally well lit and airy rooms and kept immaculate by Isabeau and her staff. Breakfasts are very fulfilling and include a daily 'special bake' from the kitchen !

Isabeau has a wealth of knowledge of the local area and can assist with suggestions or bookings for various activities if required. A beach walk to 'The 3 sisters' was fabulous but The highlight for us was a day river cruise and game dive ( only 30mins from The Beach House ) where the staff were able to cater for any special dietary requirements at a beautiful riverside lunch.

An absolute gem of a place with a fantastic host.

We loved our stay. From our spacious room on the top floor, we had beautiful sea-views and also direct access onto the beach. Thank you Isabeau for your great hospitality and amazing breakfast. We will definitely be back again.

The Beach House is a wonderful place to stay. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable, the shower hot, the towels fluffy and the breakfast sublime!
Isabeau is the perfect host - she kept in contact with us throughout our stay, and took the initiative to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay exceptional.
I'm already planning our next stay at this beautiful home right on the beach!

Nice place and good location and service. Very limited DSTV, No working air conditioner in a very cold winter(No electric blankets as well), for the price this should all be included. This is overall a nice place to stay but little overpriced.

Stayed for one night, wished it was longer. Isabeau the most genial of Hosts, helped with great information.
Our room was perfect and found everything we needed to make it a most enjoyable stay. The bed was so comfortable and we both had a great sleep.
Unfortunately we could not stay for breakfast but seeing what was on offer am sure it is a great meal at The Beach House.
If visiting Port Alfred then you have to stay here.

The best sleep I have had in years - fresh sea air and just simple calm. Breakfast is a must and worth waking up for. Isabeau is the perfect hostess - we felt welcome but not overwhelmed. Property is beautifully located with two stunning beaches across the street.

The first view of the Beach House put a massive smile on my face. Beautiful house with breathtaking views. The warmth and generosity of our host and the owner Isabeau just made our stay even more memorable. I had an ocean front facing room upstairs that was perfection. Isabeau and her team took fantastic care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. I can’t wait to go back especially in the summer time and get a chance to explore the beach and all that Port Alfred has to offer.

We loved our stay at beach house. Isabeau couldn’t have been more helpful with lots of tips on where to go and what to do!! The room overlooking the sea was just what we needed. Would definitely stay again. Port Alfred is an interesting little town. Great stop on the “Garden Route”
