“A little piece of paradise”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

My husband and I stayed with his parents at Seanotes for a few days at the end of June this year. They had been several times and until I made this trip I wondered why. I think it is impossible to say in words just how beautiful Sea Notes is. Situated in the village of Sea View There are three self catering cottages set in the grounds, the garden is set on a small slop leading to the beach. To be able to wake up and see and hear the crashing waves of the Indian ocean is one of the most relaxing feelings in the world, it was hard to leave even if it was just to do some exploring in the nearby city of Port Elizabeth.

We were very lucky to be able to spot whales, pods of dolphins and to be able to explore the beautiful beach. Our host Robyn was lovely and was always willing to help with our wildlife spotting. We also loved playing with some of Robyn's many dogs including Mr Bowjangles, Alaska and Toto.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the opportunity to see and I hope at some point in the future I am lucky enough to go back!

We stayed here in the cottage in december 2009 and had a fantastic time. Robin the owner is so very welcoming, recommended restaurants and even booked them for us. The views are outstanding too with dolphins passing daily and sunsets to die for... There is many many attractions within easy reach of this accommodation so your days will be filled. Highly recommend Robin and seanotes.

It was wonderful accomodation. From the start my godson and I were made to feel at home. There was help offered, unasked, to solve any problem that might arise and that in the final hectic weekend of the World Cup! The accomodation is situated directly on the sea with beautiful coastal views. It was great for a 12-year old who was away from his family for the first time for such a length of time. That's why it was all the more important to be made to feel so at home. A delightful experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a chance for an individual holiday.

Seanotes was the best way to finish our South African holiday along the Garden Route. We So enjoyed just chilling out and looking at the fabulous view from the bedroom window, and the terrace. We managed to see dophins, whales, but missed out on seeing the otters. Robyn and the dogs Macushla, Lulu and Toto made us feel so welcome, Nothing was too much trouble for Robyn.
Seanotes is an ideal place to explore the area between Jeffreys Bay and PE, with Seaview being one of the highlights with plenty to do on the doorstep and some wonderful beaches.
We are looking forward to a return visit in the future.

My husband & I have just stayed with Robyn at Seanotes in Seaview, a self catering guest house situated a very convenient 12 minute drive outside Port Elizabeth towards The Garden Route.We were allocated the very private cottage Seaweed, which comprises 2 bedrooms, an open plan lounge/ dining room and fully equipped kitchen. Full DSTV coverage is available at an additional cost.There is a verandah along the full length of the cottage with braai facilities at the one end.
Having ourselves just gone through a long and busy hospitality season, we were looking for somewhere that offered pure relaxaion and great comfort, with the added advantage of a sea view. We could not have chosen better.!The 5 metre waves, on the day of our arrival ,crashing directly in front of us, as there is no road between the cottage and the coast, were awesome.This is a sea view to revel in. At low tide, the rock pools in front of your cottage are a sheer delight.Add to this mix, the quietly efficiently attention of Robyn and the companionship of 3 very well behaved yet characterful dogs, and what more could one ask for?A small supermarket just a few minutes drive from the cottage & a restaurant a walk away ,are added conveniences.Sleeping with the sound of the waves quietly lapping on your doorstep was also comforting.
Seanotes will continue to be the place we break away to when our spirits need reviving!
Thank you Robyn for making our much needed break truly memorable. We will be back often!
