Everything from the minute I made the booking to checking out was fabulous. Owners and staff so friendly and kind and will go out of their way to help you with anything, you feel like you part of the family. Breakfasts delicious, rooms clean and area nice & quiet. We will definitely be back.

Really enjoyed our stay at Bayside. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were bright, clean with plenty of provisions. The breakfast was plentiful, hot and delicious. Definitely one of the best guesthouses we have stayed in. Would love to take them with us wherever we go. Thank you for an incredible experience

We were very fortunate to be hosted by these folks. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. As a matter of fact; we had a family emergency and our plans were curtailed. This meant arriving earlier than expected and finding a place 5 days before during peak season was madness.... More

The room was bright and clean, we were given great advice on where to find a good meal, and breakfast in the morning was great. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff and a... More

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.... More

We've stayed in Bayside GH at the start and end of our trip to SA. We found a place with very cosy, warm family hospitality, comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. in general - a place we was happy to call home-away-from-home.

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.
