Great place, perfect position next to casino and beach front. Owners are great and no request is too much. The room we were in was fantastic with all that is expected and more. Will use every time I am in Port Elizabeth.

I just stayed at Abalone for the past 2 weeks and it was wonderful. The room, breakfast and hosts were the best. I would highly recommend a stay here and expect to be spoiled by Christine and Glenn's wonderful hospitality and food! Highly recommended!

We stayed here with our 16month old son and it couldn't have suited us more. We were in Port Elizabeth for the Ironman and the location was perfect. The start and finish point were less than a 5 minute walk away and it only took one minute to walk to the end of the road where we watched my husband... More

A nice and safe location in summerstrand close to the airport of port elizabeth. The hosts are lovely people who care about their guests' needs. We visited on new year's day which traditionally brings large crowds to PE and had small kids with us, still we felt well taken care of in this place.

We stayed one night and upon returning from a local trip found the same apartment available again and were anxious to book it! Cynthia is a very helpful and interesting hostess. We accidentally left a heavy jacket and sweater behind. Nothing to worry about, she had them laying out for us on the return. When my daughter's plans changed and... More

Wonderful place, beautiful decor and a fabulous hostess, Cynthia. Room and bed were spacious and the bathroom was beautiful. Lovely dining room and swimming pool area and Fergie the golden retriever is adorable. Just wish we could have stayed longer.
