Stephan's is a great guest house in Port Shepstone. It was built by a German family and the decor and architecture reflect that. The room we stayed in was spacious and offered beautiful sea views. The bed was large and very comfortable. The shower is worth noting and by far the best we have experienced after forty days travelling in... More

We booked 6 weeks in advance and were very disappointed to be put into the Giraffe room - small, dark and dingy. It is nothing like the beautiful room advertised on the website. There is very little privacy as the balconies are right next to each other with only frosted glass in between. The outside chairs are small and uncomfortable.... More

This was one of the best guesthouses we stayed in over a 3-week period. It was spotless, spacious, lovely aspect, and a hidden gem of a garden courtyard. Stefan was very helpful, suggesting local restaurants (although we could have had dinner at the guesthouse). The bathroom was a delight, clearly a lot of thought has been given to decorating and...

Great value for money stay! Friendly personal service. Rooms spacious with amazing sea-views. Excellent breakfast. Will definitely return. Very close to beaches, golf course & country club. The owner, Stephan, is very friendly and helpful.

We had a most fantastic stay at Stephan's Guest House. (I will personally give Stephan's Guest House five stars). There's beautiful sea-views from all the rooms, great detail and personality throughout the house with an enchanting garden and pool area.
