Port Alfred, Eastern Cape
1Milkwood is a secure executive home in the exclusive suburb of West Beach in the coastal town of Port Alfred. Situated in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Stretching out between the cities of Port Elizabeth and East London lies the Sunshine Coast, a land of small towns, pristine beaches, beautiful rivers, and warm-hearted people.
Aptly called the Sunshine Coast, because this coastal strip has more sunshine hours than any other part of South Africa. This facilitates the enjoyment of a myriad outdoor activities such as quad biking, surf sailing, deep sea fishing, kite surfing, skiing and hiking. Explore navigable rivers, dive and explore the rich coral reefs, go horse riding along vast golden beaches, or take a safari through the many malaria free game parks in the area. There are arts and...

The house was fantastic. Veronica the housekeeper was such an added bonus as she helped organise the men for our wedding ironing suits. Nothing was an issue. There is a large shopping centre near by and also a very short walk to the gold club and highlander pub for evening meals if you want to eat out. Short walk to...

The setting of this magnificent BnB was simply breathtaking. Large patios opening onto the front of the house overlooking the Port Alfred coastline. The views were well worth the rate we paid. Service was excellent, food was superb. If you looking for place to slow and relax this is it.

About the neighbourhood
The seaside town of Port Alfred is the most sought-after holiday destination on Route 72. It is situated on the Sunshine Coast which is aptly named for the most sunny days anywhere in South Africa. Known for its wonderful temperate climate, endless pristine beaches and friendly village atmosphere, this small coastal town midway between East London and Port Elizabeth boasts a world renowned reclaimed marina, glorious surf, magnificent deep sea and river fishing (the Kowie River can be navigated by boat for 23km inland) and the laid-back lifestyle so beloved by all visitors, many of whom become permanent residents. Boats can be launched at the Small Boat Harbour in the Marina and deep sea fishing or river expeditions can be arranged.

For golf lovers, there is The Royal Port Alfred Golf Club...

How to get there
Airport: Port Elizabeth: 150.0 km
From Port Elizabeth: Take the N2 highway and follow the signs to Grahamstown. After the split onto the N2 Grahamstown road (about 50km from Port Elizabeth CBD), take the R72 to Port Alfred. It is about 100km from this point to Port Alfred. A lovely stop on the way is at Nanaga Store, just where the R72 splits to Port Alfred. Drive through Alexandria, Bushman's River and Kenton-on-Sea. Once you see the Rosehill Mall, you have reached Port Alfred. Take a right at Atherstone Road (you will see the Vet on the corner). Continue through two sets of 4-way stops, past the Royal Port Alfred Golf Course on your right and St Andrew's Lodge on your left. The 2nd road left is Muirfield, take that and bear left. Where Muirfield meets Milkwood, you will see the house directly in front of... more
