A Villa de Mer is slightly more expensive than our average accommodation in South Africa. But now we definitely wanted to have room with nice view and own balcony - so room #1.
There are some stairs to carry luggage off the car, but really not that bad.
Whole building is very stylish. Room was really spacious, top quality bed and bathroom equipment. Really clever furniture. Easy to see that whoever has planned the room, has had bright idea how to make it pleasant.
Beach is just 100m away, and what a beach! Nice to walk around, nice to enjoy the sea - just remember safe areas and dangerous currents. And nice pool gives swimming experience without waves.
There are not that many restaurants nearby, but braai area next to pool is very good.
Breakfast was delicious, and staff makes fruit salads, which are not only very tasty but also artistic masterpieces.
We enjoyed. Also those great conversations with Magda!

Room Tip: #1 has great own balcony

We stayed several nights at A Villa De Mer, a beautiful bed & breakfast located on beach in Port Alfred, South Africa. The manager, Memory Robinson was most gracious host for our stay. And, The lovely ladies on her staff made out visit most memorable. Our elegant room was fully equipped to meet our needs. Besides being a beautiful bed and breakfast located on the most stunning beach in the world, the staff is Five Star.

It was our pleasure to host such a lovely couple. We sincerely hope that all is well at your home in Tampa Bay and, that there are no more hurricanes heading towards the United States. Take care.

I have stayed in hundreds of great hotels, B&B's around the world and some shabby ones too. My stay at A Villa de Mer was truly a lovely experience. With minimum fuss, the friendly proprietor showed our group on business around the place with concise and simple instructions. She then stayed out of our way - good thing when on business. The establishment for me was pleasing, it is as good as it looks on the website. The quality of all amenities, furnishings and cleanliness was top line. Although we could only stay a single night, I found the establishment very pleasing, quiet with the soothing sound of the nearby surf making for a restful stay. The breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared. I shall return when I'm in the area again

Room Tip: Room 1 has a lovely sea view with large picture windows
