Had a pleasant stay for 4 nights. Paris, when you see her, is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good if a little on the slow side. ~The bedroom was very nicely presented although bathrooms could do with a little updating. Be aware that this property is not currently graded 5 star as advertised on the website. It fits... More

We stayed at this B&B in November 2013. The location was close to many attractions, the rooms were clean and well appointed. The staff and proprietor at the B&B were all very attentive and very friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling the Garden Route.

After seven hours on the road, African Breeze was the perfect place to flop. No sooner had we stepped through the door than Paris and her husband Steve were offering us a cup of tea or something stronger to reinvigorate us. African Breeze is the perfect place to relax and chill around the delightful pool area in comfy sun loungers... More

Tucked away on Leisure Isle, the 'African Breeze' was a lovely place to stay. After a long drive, Paris greeted us with welcome drinks and set to work on restaurant recommendations for our 3 night stay. Both her and Steve are excellent hosts with lots of nice touches - like supplying ice for my swollen foot when I hobbled back... More
