We've been in Carl's apartment this November.
The apartment is amazing, very modern, fully equipped with more than you will actually need, with little things you won't expect from a self-catering place like shampoo, soaps, tea, coffee, etc, in perfect conditions, super clean and outstanding views of the city, bay and beach. It only lacks AC but you do not really need it at Port Elizabeth, specially at the high of the apartment.
The building is also in outstanding conditions, with private security, a nice pool with a great view, quiet neighbours and perfectly clean.
The neighbourhood is one of the best to be in, with brand new buildings, pretty safe and with many restaurants and attractions close by like Ocean Basket restaurant, Coachman on the Bay restaurant, The Boardwalk open mall, The Oceanarium, Nando's restaurant, McDonald's, Cubaña Bar/Cafe/Latin Club, Humewood Six Pillars, Shark Rock Pier, Hobie beach, Kings beach, dive centers, surf centers and not too far away by car you can easily reach more amazing restaurants like Two Olives, SANCCOB Penguin Rescue Station, Addo Elephant Park, other private and national reserves and Sardinia bay too.
Anyways, I do not want to focus on the apartment itself as you will see the incredible picture here. The place is really like that and the views too. I want to focus on the kind of service Carl provides. It is out of this world.
Carl is a super host. He really goes far and beyond to make your stay perfect. As soon as we got to Port Elizabeth, Carl received us at the airport waited for us to get the rental car and guided us to the apartment. He then explained us all the details of the apartment, neighbourhood and gave us great tips about the city. He prepared a welcome package with a few drinks and snacks for us too. He also gave us a great city tour showing us the most iconic places and telling which places we should go and check out. He was always available for anything we would need. He even joined us one night to diner! We never felt him as the host/owner but more as a friend ready to help and spend some time with us having fun. Again, he is a super host and a great person!
All these little things that came with the apartment, Carl and his great service make the whole stay a very enjoyable experience.
If you are visiting PE, this apartment is the best place to be in! You will feel at home and with a friend close by!
A great apartment with stunning views. Our host was very attentive and flexible, assisting with questions and advice. Many small personal touches like fruit and chocolates made everyone feel special. The apartment was spotless and of a high standard. We will definitely return!
Very clean and spacious apartment in an excellent location. Carl was an amazing host who is very accommodating, he went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and convenient, even drove us to the supermarket to pick up some groceries. Best thing about the apartment is location, 10 minute walk from the beach and many great restaurants, plus it is in a very safe apartment building. Carl is also very attentive and gives good advice on things to do in the area, would definitely recommend staying here and will be back again.
Great apartment. Everything there what you need. Excellent view on Kings Beach, PE and the whole bay. Fast wifi connection, all DSTV channels. It's a very secure apartment. I parked my car at the visitors parking bays. The parking bay are watched r 24hrs by manned security and camera surveillance. The pool is one level higher with a great view as well and sun from morning to sunset. After a few colder days it doesnt take long to warming up the water again. You can walk down to beach or to one of the restaurants like Ocean Basket or Coachman. Carl is a very friendly and always helpful host. You can reach him by phone all day if you need something. He gave me good recommendations of restaurants and swimmings spots and immediately assisted me as I lost my credit cards at one of the shopping centers. Unfortunately I could not stay longer.
