The location is perfect for a bech holiday. Lodge is elevated and hidden from the traffic of locals and cars. The owners are very hospitable and friendly.
The lodge has 3 bedrooms each with its own bathroom across the room. The kitchen is communal shared by both guests and the owners. Each room has its seperate entrance.
The lodge completely works if you are travelling as a group of 3 couples, if there is other tenants at the same time not travelling with you then its tricky and uncomfortable.
The patio/deck area with the braai area overlooking the bech is just perfect.
The beach is within a walking distance.
The traget market for this lodge its seems its backpackers. Our rooms were not cleaned the entire 5 days we were there. No one makes your bed or takes out the trash for you.
This is a self catering place and the cleaning staff only clean the kitchen area and bathroom.
- 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
