“Excellent for one night pre departure stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This was everything we needed for one night in PE- good room, lovely setting and delicious breakfast. Only complaint would be that in keeping with many establishments the room we had did not have a plug near a mirror ! Friendly team and easy to walk to a number of restaurants or they offer dinner and an honesty bar if you want to stay in. Would definetly use again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground floor and near the main gate so a bit noisy so maybe an upstairs room wou...

Been ten years since my last visit and it just gets better! Well positioned with spacious rooms and good breakfast! Hosts are friendly too. A home from home. Cant wait to go back! Worth a visit. Not the average b&b. best place in port elizabeth.

We recently met up with our Australian family for a reunion and required accommodation for the entire group. Anthea and Mush, our hosts, went out of their way to accommodate us at their lovely guest house. We were provided with our own large dining area each morning and were given full use of the pool and lapa area for an entire day, where we invited our friends and extended family to join us for a barbeque. So much thought has been put into the establishment, from the beach towels at reception to the mini first aid kit in the bathrooms (who hasn't forgotten the antacid or band-aids when packing for a trip?) We had a fantastic time and will definitely stay at this establishment again.

Perfect place if coming for business or vacation. Make you feel between friends just like home.
Anthea and Ana, they run the extra mile to meet your expectations. You can concentrate to do work or simple relax.
Place is near to beach and many restaurants, beside to be a couple blocks from Boardwalk complex.

Having booked a tour of South Africa independently, we only had one night at this wonderful property. I wished we had stayed longer. I was travelling with a firiend so we had a twin room which was huge. It was light and airy with french doors that opened on to one of the swimming pools. It was a very short walk to the beach where there were so many restaurants and bars that we were spolit for choice. The owners were loveley and more than happy to stop and chat. I would definitely go back again.

We only stayed here for 1 night, however wished we had stayed for more. Great location for local restaurants and the beach and boardwalk and the room we were given was in the main building and was huge. It had a balcony and overlooked the Main Street, which was very quiet. The room itself had a separate lounge area and a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Decoration was contemporary. The guest house has a small pool however due to the cool weather, we did not use it but it i looked very inviting. The breakfast was beautiful and there was lots of fresh, tasty food, including divine warm fresh muffins. Yummy. Anthea was a lovely host and nothing was too much trouble. We booked this through a local tour company called East Cape Tours, who were also very professional and helped us arrange a most memorable holiday.

Room Tip: I would personally ask for a first floor room, due to the possibility of bugs getting in.

We have just had a 4 night stay at 5th Avenue Beach House and found it to be in a great location near to the beach ,local restaurants and the Boardwalk.
Our room was beautifully furnished with great quality bed linen and bathroom towels
and of a good size.
the bathroom was lovely with a corner bath and a very large walk in shower.
Breakfast was first class with everything you could want to eat.
The pool area and gardens were well maintained,very pretty.
Anthea and her team was so welcoming with lots of advice on where to go in the area.
Anthea always had time for a chat with you.
Thank You everyone
