Hotel description
The Lily Lodge, set in the dune forest at Second Beach, Port St Johns, is an idyllic venue for enjoying the Transkei Wild Coast. From our restaurant, you may sight schools of dolphins surfing and gliding away the late afternoon. We serve you the fruits of the ocean complemented by wines from the Cape. Our chalets nestle amongst the trees where you can listen to exotic birdcalls and watch the monkeys play. You can laze on the beach, walk for hours in the forests and along the cliffs, or fish to your heart's content. Other activities in Port St Johns include tours to local villages, deep-sea fishing and horse trails. The Lodge is owned and run by Mbuyie O'Mahony, a Pondo lady married to an Irish doctor. It is a local venture, fully staffed and operated by people from Pondoland. Our chalets nestle amongst the trees where you can listen to the exotic birdcalls of louries, hoopoes, hornbills, and watch the monkeys play. We have thirty rooms, all air-conditioned and self contained with showers. There are TV's in every room with multi-channel satellite reception.
