Thank you for taking the time to review us.
We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and hope that you will need to escape to the "friendly city" again soon. It was a pleasure having you and we would love to see you again.
Stephanie and the Bayside family.
We stayed in Bayside Guesthouse in January 2013 before starting on our Addo National Park and Garden Route trip for two nights.
We were looking for a safe and comfortable place to stay and booked into Bayside mainly for this reason after reading the positive reviews. As the place seemed rather professionally run, we did not expect the typical B&B atmosphere or a personal touch to it.
Arrived in Port Elizabeth, we were positively surprised: We received a warm welcome from the owners. Our son was delighted there was another kid and the dog. Stephanie and Janine cooked great breakfast and welcomed us like friends on a visit over. The breakfast area is bright and friendly, invites to enjoy a relaxed breakfast.
The room was professionally furnished, clean and comfortable. The pool and barbeque area allowed to spend a lazy afternoon on the premises. You would probably not do this for many days as the guesthouse grounds are not overly big, but it is ideal to relax for a while before moving on.
The beach and sea are in walking distance, however you have to know that Port Elizabeth is also known as the "windy city", so you may have sharp wind and blowing sand depending on your luck with the weather.
The airport is very close by, ideal for late arrivals / early departures (but cannot really be heard, no noise problems). There are some shopping malls etc. not too far away. Port Elizabeth as a city is not overly exciting as a tourist destination. However there is enough to do around like zoos, activities etc.. We only visited an animal farm with our son before we moved on.
Thank you so very much for your review.
I are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We (including our little boy) sure enjoyed having you and your family for the 2 nights.
We hope you had a lovely time in Addo and down the Garden Route and that you are planning your next trip to South Africa.
All the best until we meet again.
Stephanie, Janine and the Bayside Team.
Chose to book Bayside Guest house for it's location in the quiet suburb of Summerstrand. After a long flight needed to rest & unwind. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable & quiet.The room had tea & coffee making facility which is always convenient. A good cooked breakfast every morning in the bright dining room. Stephanie & Janine very hospitable, pleasent & helpful spending time passing on information. Cassie always on hand to meet & greet ! The gardens around the house are constantly maintained & cared for. Hope to return to S.A. again, relaxed in knowing that we will be looked after at Bayside.
Thank you very much for your lovely review of Bayside Guesthouse.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and you were able to relax after you long journey.
I was such a pleasure meeting you and we hope you will visit again one day.
Stephanie & Janine
PS: Cassey sends you a big "tail" wag :-)
I booked Bayside Guesthouse from home and I was more than surprised: it was even nicer than in the web: all nice and well arranged with a lot of green. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. Breakfast was excellent - many thanks to Janine and Stephanie who made us feel more like friends and not just guests. We spent a wonderful week there and I hope to come back very soon.
Best regards and all the best for the Bayside Team
Wow, that was such a wonderful review. Thank you so very much.
We must tell you how much we enjoyed having stay with us...and you are right, by the time the week was up, you did feel more like friends than customers!
We hope you are keeping well and planning your next trip to PE.
Stephanie, Janine and the Team.
Its close to the beach in a very nice area. The staff here is warm,friendly and makes you want to come back. The management/Owners really go's out of their way to making your stay comfortable. I stayed here for 3 nights, its the second time im here and will be coming back again. Its very safe and peaceful. I would love to bring my family with on one of my trips down to Port Elizabeth and saty at the Bayside Guest house
Thank you so much for your amazing review.
As you know, it is always a pleasure to have here and look forward to your next trip.
We hope all is well with the family at home.
See you soon,
Steph & Janine
Bayside is located in the quiet suburb of Summerstrand. Within easy walking distance of the beach and a more energetic walk to restaurants. Although parking at the Boardwalk and at other restaurants is easy and safe.
We stayed at Bayside for six nights. On arrival and throughout our stay we were made most welcome by Stephanie, Clifford and Janine. They made it more like staying with friends than as paying guests and were always on-hand to offer help, assistance with things to do and see in PE and a friendly chat. At breakfast time, as well as the hearty breakfast, the hosts create an all inclusive atmosphere between the guests.
Our room (room 4) was spacious and well appointed with a good outside living space.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and overall experience at Bayside and would recommend it.
Thank you so much for your kind review.
We must tell you that we also felt like you friends staying over rather than paying customers :-) It was such a pleasure to meet and get to know you a Doreen and we really hope that you will come and visit us again on one of your next trips to SA.
And remember....your holiday next year will be 6 weeks minimum :-)
Please send our love to Doreen.
