One of the best accommodations we have visited so far. Absolutely perfect for guests who want peace and a great service.The guesthouse in Port Alfred. Every morning freshly baked bread, cake and a perfect breakfast to start the day. Sit on the terrace and relax. The beaches are only a few minutes away. Thank you Dale

The best part of our stay was the kindness of the Guest House host, Dale. He was thoughtful and attentive. After a busy work week, we appreciated arriving in Port Alfred and having the ability to just relax.

This is a special place, facing west over the river upstream from town, with a wonderful outlook and sunset views. The lodge is excellently set up, the rooms with deep patios are great and Dale is a truly professional and friendly host. I highly recommend it.

What a wonderful experience! The location, rooms, hospitality and food are definitely a 5 star experience! Ditte and Dale go out of there way to make you feel at home. There is plenty to see in and around Port Alfred or just soak up the sun on a deckchair at the stunning pool.

This is a really beautiful and considered guesthouse on the Kowie river. The place is owner run, very hospitable. A delicious breakfast is served on the verandah from where you can watch the birds on the water and watch the tide come in or go out.
