The staff had been very obliging and extraordinary helpful.
The rooms had been very clean and tastefully furnished.

The staff was welcoming, the food was fantastic and the rooms were out of this world. I will definitely be staying here every time I visit P.E. The place is magnificent and extra neat. Donna is also very helpful, sweet and welcoming. Thank you.

As so many have said in their reviews, this guest house is an absolute gem.

1. The rooms are immaculate, as are the interior common areas and grounds
2. The food was excellent, on all counts. A guest house which serves dinner to order, and until 8pm at night, is unheard of. A big thumbs up and thank you for looking after all my needs (including a request for a glass at wine at 8 at night)
3. Each room has a balcony or patio which is a lovely extension of your room-space
4. The pool, lounging area and outside deck is amazing. Loved spending time there.
5. Even on the day where they were fully occupied, it didn't feel overcrowded at all. Impressive that you can find your own spot and get comfortable (they only have 7? rooms)
6. The staff are really exceptional in accommodating requests and deserve a good tip when you check out
7. Ample parking available without any stresses about finding a space when you return after a day out
8. There are so many small items which makes a stay comfortable (in-room fridge which is already prepared with cold drinks and water, large room, comfortable bed, many TV channels to choose from, dedicated smoking areas which includes your balcony or patio, aircon, safe, mosquito spray and so many more).

Some constructive comments (as I do in all reviews):
1. The afternoon sun is tough to handle if you use the loungers. Maybe some canvas rollers you can extend down to create some shade may be helpful?
2. Even with 1 pax in the room, it's unusual (and a bit uncomfortable) to have only 1 bath towel (bath sheet size) available. This could be a water-saving measure, which is why I didn't comment on it
3. Know that the beach is a 2 min drive or brisk 15 min walk away. It's a fantastic beach though and with the pool and quality of the guest house you're enjoying it's a non-issue

As far as guest houses go in South Africa, this must be one of the best I've seen.
Highly recommended - there is no way you'll be disappointed.

Room tip: If you can get one of the rooms on the far side it's quieter (rather than the 4 in front of the pool)

We enjoyed our stay... perfect guesthouse. Will definitely come back. The staff was very effective, room was clean and modern, the breakfast was great. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway close to the beaches.

A perfect one night stay to re charge our batteries after heading off on safari.
Super clean, very comfy beds, and breakfast was delicious. All staff were also very friendly, would recommend as a stop over. Thank you
