The Lodge was one of the quirkiest places we stayed in during our Trans-RSA trip in 2010. We arrived the night of the FIFA WC Final and had a ball watching the finals with the owner, some locals and 3 dogs! It was something to write home about. We booked all 3 rooms (practically the whole resort) to ourselves. We DID NOT feel it was run-down or dilapidated. Simple and comfortable. We had dinner at the restaurant next door. Sunrise was gorgeous with a view to kill for.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Lodge on the Beach, is a guest house situated right on the beach and probably the closest you will get anywhere along the Wild Coast. There are three rooms at The Lodge on the Beach, all of which are sea facing overlooking the length of Second Beach, a rustic community consisting of three accommodation establishments, two quirky restaurants and a local shebeen. All rooms, the large shaded veranda and the braai area have magnificent views of the ocean, lagoon and forest with 'The Gap and Blowhole' in the background and Bulolo River and Lagoon at your doorstep. Each room has a small sundeck and private bathroom which is not en-suite. The Lodge on the Beach has a relaxed atmosphere and is most suitable for couples and small families who wish to be a stone's throw away from the ocean and lagoon. It is also a good place to start the 'Port St Johns to Coffee Bay Hike' from, as we are right at the beginning of this hike. The Lodge on the Beach is a bed and breakfast, and dinners can be provided on request. Local fishermen often provide seafood such as crayfish/lobster, fish, mussels and oysters which we prepare for guests. There is also a self-catering option where guests make use of the communal kitchen and braai area. There are also two restaurants namely the 'Delicious Monster' and 'Wood`n Spoon' which are within 50 meters of The Lodge on the Beach. Once at The Lodge on the Beach there are many things to do without driving anywhere which include relaxing on the beach or in the lagoon, fishing, walking through Silaka Nature Reserve to Third Beach, walk to 'The Gap and Blowhole', hiking to Bulolo Waterfall, and paddling up the Bulolo River. ... more less
