We had the best time in Port Alfred over the Christmas period. The guest house had absolutely everything we needed and the additional self catering features were an added bonus. The room is so luxurious, it felt like we were on honeymoon and the location was fantatsic. I would highly recommend it if you visiting Port Alfred.

From my balcony, I had a view on both the river and swimming pool... Both very tempting... The room are very nicely decorated with an attention to details... The host gave me all the options and information about kayak rentals and nice place to eat. Great view, comfort and excellent service...

A lovely warm welcome, a beautiful setting and a stunning room. Attention to detail. The extremely well appointed room looks onto the Kowie River and what a magic place to watch the sun go down. If you want to self cater and not visit one of the restaurants nearby there is a gas Weber and all the utensils. They also offer the option of breakfast (absolutely delicious) and this is served on the patio in your room. We had a little vehicle battery problem which our hosts sorted out for us. Thank you Ditte and Graham for a wonderful stay and we'll be back.

Perfectly appointed room with a view of the Kowie River. Immaculately kept in a thoughtful presentation for the guestscomfort. Breakfast service too efficiently and tastefully presented. A brief but memorable stay.

We loved our stay. Not every day you stay in a unit that needs no love. It's well looked after, very neat and clean, walking distance to restaurants. Our late afternoons on the patio, with the setting sun, was special.
