“Lovely Garden setting close to beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2009

I stayed in room no.1 at the rear of the property and had easy off street secure parking,which is important in South Africa apparently, although I never experienced ANY problems whatsoever.
There is a lush garden surrounding the house which I think has 5 rooms /apartments.
A plunge pool in the front of house with sun chairs. I was there mid winter but think it would be very nice in summer.
All of the staff were friendly and breakfast was tasty and filling with choice of eggs sausages bacon toast etc etc .
My only complaint is,and this is for the whole of SA, is the coffee,no one seems to have espresso machines, so although it is fresh its not strong Italian style coffee.Anyway its a small thing compared to everything else.
The bed was comfy and warm in winter with 2 heaters in room with reverse cycle air conditioning.
Satelite tv was good for SA that is.
All in all a good place to stay in Humewood beach Port Elizabeth.
