Lovely, homely one night stay in this gorgeous home away from home. Close enough to walk to the beach to steal a sneaky swim in the sea over the lockdown (and got bust with a R1000 fine!!!)
Staff great, breakfast fantastic.

Hailing from California, this trip was my second time to South Africa. This time around, my boyfriend and I took a 10-day road trip from Cape Town up the Eastern Cape, through to St. Francis - a dreamy little hamlet of a town, beautifully organized along its waterfront and upmarket canals with incredibly fun surf, great boutiques, lovely restaurants, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and one amazing guesthouse I can’t speak more highly about. We stayed at Sandal’s Guesthouse for three nights. The location was epic! It’s situated a couple blocks from a fantastic surf spot, a short distance from Jeffrey’s Bay (which was awesome to visit, but I wouldn’t want to stay there), served as a fantastic location to venture out a little further on Safari - we went to Addo Elephant Park, amongst a myriad of other incredible nature-based and cultural activities.

The guesthouse is designed in a super cute, naturally chic, maybe even a little African/Island boho style with seven or eight guest rooms, so it’s very comfortable, quiet and the easy energy is super inviting. The outdoor pool area is your quintessential chillax spot - think lush garden with a beautifully manicured lawn at poolside on a chaise with a Savanna (yummy SA cider beer) - if that’s your thing. The hotel staff did an incredible job adding little details like the flowers in the room, the presentation of breakfast, and overall making us feel very comfortable and safe during these times of COVID-19. All in all, if you’re road tripping through the Eastern Cape, you can not miss St. Francis and the Sandals Guesthouse! I can’t wait to go back!!

Room tip: Each room has private outdoor spaces, but I liked the bottom room nearest the pool for easy access.

This is a wonderful place to have a chilled weekend break. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with your own private patio. We stayed in room 2, which, despite arriving on a swealtering day was refreshingly cool. Breakfast was great and we enjoyed lounging around the pool. Thank you for making a weekend away a super relaxed and enjoyable time.

Nice place with african flair with a small garden and pool. Hosts are very hospitable. Nice room with balcony. Close to the beach.
Very small town with nice white painted houses with thatched roofs. Looks like Sylt in Germany.
We really enjoyed our stay.

Enjoyed our stay at this B and B, but did have issues with the outside shower. This was the only option and the decking to get back indoors was dirty which meant that your feet got dirty.
The bedroom was nice but the bathroom definitely needs upgrading.
Good location, nice staff and lovely breakfast. Quiet location too.
