From here you have access to your private pool area with sun loungers, outside furnitures and BBQ grill/braai. The rates are different with 2, 3 or 4 guests. The accommodation is equipped with flat-TV, DVD player, hairdryer, fan, fridge, 2plate induction stove, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery. Towels and bed linen will be provided. Washing and maid service possible, ask for it. Should you need anything else please let me know. On request we fill your fridge for the 1st day with the essentials. The two malls make grocery shopping quick and easy and even gives the option of browsing through a variety of shops. The river is a real attraction in the town, offering plenty of activities for the active and the not-so-active. With river cruises, water skiing, canoeing, paddling and river-side dining, it is definitely the place to be. The beach is perfect for walks in the sunny winter days and lovely for swimming and tanning in the summer. Port Alfred is close to Port Elizabeth, East London, Grahamstown and Bathurst for those looking for an excursion. The surrounding countryside has thousands hectares of malaria-free game reserves, many hiking trails and historical and scenic places to visit. The land is wild and beautiful and the scenery spectacular... so get out and explore!More
