Great place to stay. Everything you need is there, fully equipped kitchen (including milk, juices, coffee, and even 'something medicinal'), comfortable beds, braai (with charcoal), swimming pool. Walking distance to some beaches, short drive to the others. Owners very friendly and helpful, can give directions or recommendations for anything in the area (even help me book an emergency dentist appointment!).

We had the pleasure of staying at Abeach cottages for the South Africa Ironman and we could not of imagined staying anywhere else. Charlotte, her family and her housekeepers were all beautiful hosts. We felt for the 9 days we were there that we are at 'home'- except maybe it was even better than being at home! Thank you again... More

All I can do is add to the wonderful reviews submitted about this place by others before me. We chose not to do the hotel stay on our last few days in Sth Africa and were thankful for that. We stayed in the family unit and everything is just spot on. The beds, linen, towels are all first class....they provide... More

Couldn't have asked for a more welcoming place to stay. Our host was wonderful, the location great and the finishing touches far exceeded our expectations... Up there with hotel standards :) thanks Charlotte!

This place made our long weekend extra special. Charlotte provides all the necessities of home plus things you don't even think of to take with on holiday. She makes it so easy to travel lightly because she even provides breakfast goodies and milk and juice on arrival. That is what I call hospitality. Charlotte has a real gift for making... More

Last week, in September 2012, we stayed at Abeachcottage for three days, and what a pleasure that was!! The self-catering unit that was allocated to us is extremely well equipped, very clean, light and bright, with five-star beds and quality finishes. It even has a quaint beautiful little private garden and a patio (with a weber) to enjoy sun-downing Sherries... More

We spent two nights at A Beach Cottage. It is an incredibly well equipped light and bright cottage with all you could ask for. Lovely white fluffy cotton towels and duvets, gowns, heaters and a much desired electric blanket which was really welcomed. Satellite tv and a small selection of dvd's. Parking and premises well secured. Small well maintained garden... More

We have no reservations about recommending this property as highly as is possible. I asked my folks (as they live in PE) to view the property for us (as I'm sceptical of places that look and sound great over the internet). A Beach Cottage looks great on the internet because it is awesome. My Mom's summary was: "It ticks all... More

Thank you very much Richard and Lorraine for our best stay in Port Elizabeth so far! Every year with Ironman we are looking for comfortable, private, centrally located, neat and clean accommodation and we could not have asked for anything better. We stayed in the cottage and it is truely beautiful with much more than what you will need. Lorraine,... More

My husband and I stayed with our two daughters (4 and 1 years old) at "A Beach Cottage" in December and January for over 5 weeks. To make a long story short: this is the best place to stay in PE - and I did a lot of research in advance! Their biggest USP is the 2 BR cottage, which... More
