You have to stay there, when you are in P.E.! The guest house and rooms are very nice and clean. The staff and the owner give a quick feeling of being at home! A wonderful memory and we will come back - of course!

Really enjoyed ourselves here. Very nice and comfortable room with a delicious breakfast. Also very quiet. The host made several dinner suggestions and they were right on. We highly recommend this guesthouse.

We stayed at Bayside Guesthouse for 3 nights during our Honeymoon. They were so thoughtful to even put some champagne in our room when we arrived. Super service! They really helped us out with things to do in the area. Also gave us a lot of flyers of activities in the area and pre-booked a trip to Addo Elephant park....

In a quiet area and within an easy walk of the water front and places to eat. A short drive into Pt Elizabeth and an ideal location for touring. Comfortable rooms and nice breakfasts and secure parking for cars.
