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

Great location for the beach and Broadwalk complex. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Although our room did not have a balcony with ample space around the pool we did not miss it. All the staff was very pleasant and helpful whenever we needed anything.

Just had one night here after visiting Shamwari. It was very central to our needs and our room had all the comforts we needed. We did not have time for a swim but the pool looked very inviting! We were very close to the beach and extremely convenient for the airport for our early morning flight to Johannesburg.

We stayed here for 1 night as part of our Garden Route Tour and arrived late in the afternoon and left the next morning.

The room was lovely, spacious and well equipped with a kitchenette and lounge area with a large bathroom. It opened onto a lovely courtyard with a small pool and the gardens were beautiful.

The Guest House itself is in a good location, close to the beach and Boardwalk but seems a bit "Fort Knox" with access control and high walls. Not sure why as the surrounding area seemd safe and well lit. It had it's own secure parking area.

The staff were all lovely and the breakfast was the best we had in country which is high praise indeed.

I can't really comment on Port Elizabeth as we didn't have time to see much of it but it seemed quite industrial apart from the immediate location which was nice.

Would I recommend - yes
Would I return - yes.

Stayed for one night at 5th Avenue Beach House at the start of our drive of the Garden Route. Great location just 10 minutes from PE airport and very easy to find. Close to the beautiful beach which was a lovely place to have an early morning walk. Our family of 9 stayed in 4 rooms and all were large, modern and very clean. My parents who were celebrating their golden wedding anniversary were given a fantastic suite with a separate sitting area and a jacuzzi bath. Every member of staff was friendly, welcoming and couldn't do enough to help. Drinks and snacks are available via an 'honesty bar' with very reasonable prices and this enabled us to just stay in and relax after a long day's travelling. We just wished we could have stayed longer!
