“Home from Home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2010

Situated in quiet little Kini Bay, right on the sea front (which is fairly rocky), Sea Otters Lodge makes you one of the family. The rooms are very cosy with copious amenities - tea, coffee, snacks, generous bathroom amenities. Guests can also use the kitchen/living room near the entrance whenever necessary. Breakfasts are served down below in a large room overlooking the sea. The breakfast was plentiful and extremely good .

The owner, Pierre Kolesky, is very friendly, helpful and knows the area well. If you want more privacy, go to a hotel. If you want the warmth of a home away from home in an imposing house within a twenty minute drive of Port Elizabeth, then this is it.
