We stayed in the guesthouse for 5 days in January with 4 of us for business we have had a great time. The service and friendliness is overwhelming, it was like coming home after a long trip. It was really great. I can only recommend this place. My room was not a bungalow but on the first floor just over... More

Location is the best in Port Elizabeth as I see. It's recommended by my colleagues. I understood why. Very very warm people and so wonderful place to listen to your mind and soul. Wish I'll be back with my family next time. Especially, thanks to whom clean and put the things in order in my room.

My 2 friends and I stayed here for just 1 night whilst on a tour down the coast. The hostel owner was very welcoming and helpful, showing us where to go for dinner and arranging for us to be escorted safely back again. The room was clean and comfortable and the bath and shower facilities were lovely. Would have been... More

Over the last few of years I've traveled to the P.E. area for business over a 15-16 times all for extended stays. I can not even begin to think of staying anywhere else but the 5th Ave. Beach House. Anthea, Mush and the entire staff are truly amazing. The food is top shelf, and I've stayed in nearly every room,... More

We loved staying at 5th Avenue Beach House. All the staff went out of their way to make it a pleasant stay. They organised 2 tours for us which were fantastic & the location is a 2 minute walk to a local surf break. Breakfast was amazing, fresh & there was heaps of variety. We would highly recommend this place... More

Long stay. The lady who runs the place is a soft-spoken and nice lady. Sad she did not speak up, when her husband who never greeted me until one moment he shouted at me wildly in the streets in front of people and threatened me. Just because a chair broke under me, I did not get hurt luckily, but he... More

We stayed here for one week with a group of university faculty. Our 2nd floor room was spacious and nicely appointed, including a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom had a shower and tub, and the toiletries even included insect repellent! The balcony was nice for sitting and reading. Breakfast was very good with some cooked-to-order items. The staff was friendly... More

I have been coming to 5th Avenue Beach House for >15 years. This has become my home from home in PE. The friendly and efficient service is unsurpassed and the rooms are fantastic with great showers. You soon become part of the family and nothing is to much hassle for Anthea and her team.
