It's like having a home away from home. Comfortable stay with all you would need. Far enough for a peaceful rest and close enough to walk to the closest shop/beach. Service is professional with someone always available to assist.

Stunning location just a short walk from the beach. Our room was modern and spacious. It even had a small kitchenette and lounge area. Gloriously big bed, slept the best I have in ages! Friendly staff, cosy breakfast area with nice selection. Our second visit here and will always return to stay in this guesthouse when in PE. Lisa and...

The location is great and the room was lovely. However, the hostesses first comment was how had we managed to make such a late reservation because they don't take late check ins (it was 8:00pm and we had an unexpected layover in Port Elizabeth so only booked through Booking.com at about 6pm). Made me feel that we were an inconvenience....

Normally when guests are going to be 2,5 hours late they pay us a courtesy call to ensure that somebody will be on hand to check them in and/or to arrange an access code. Fortunately I did pick up on your late booking before leaving for the day and you were not inconvenienced by nobody being here to greet you....

Pleasant guesthouse in Summerstrand ideal for PE and surrounding activities. Excellent breakfast and hosts gladly help with tips and information. Room is pleasant, although bath and shower could do with some face lifting.

A wonderful place to stay in Summerstrand. Roger gave us a very warm welcome, the room was very nice, clean and all the services one would need. A very short drive to the beach or just have a relaxing time next to the pool. The breakfast was very good, and loved having Jessie the bassett hound around.

Stayed at the end of our trip and it was best choice we could have - calm area, easy access to all place you want to visit and to the beach and the airport at the end. Definitely can recommend this well kept place. Fabulous cleaning, maybe the breakfast could be better.

We loved very much to be welcomed by the friendly basset hound Jessie!! Friendly staff. Great breakfast, the swimming pool and breakfast area is a small and quiet oasis. Very close to the beach. The room was a little bit small but extremely charming and with a nice patio.
