“The best Guest House in SA!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Marianne Streicher

Two years ago our family stayed at Summer Blue - we thought it must be brand new because it was very clean and neat. Now, two years later we stayed there again and it still is as clean and neat as two years ago! Baubie is the best hostess and shows SA that it is possible to keep a guest house above the expected standards!! Best beds, cleanest bathrooms, best breakfast and best hostess. We have stayed in many guest houses and everytime we talk about how wonderful Summer Blue is. We are looking for excuses to visit PE! Thank you Baubie! And to everybody out there: go see what a guest house is suppose to be like!!

Another memorable week spent at Summer Blue on holiday with my sister, visiting from the USA. Thanks to Baubie for her hospitality - professional, kind and friendly. The entire establishment is immaculate and so safe, with secure parking. The freshly made fruit salad (to die for!!) and delicious breakfast has to get a mention. And best of all, we didn't need to use the heaters and electric blankets, as the weather was as great as our accommodation. Summer Blue comes highly rated.

This is a professional and lovingly run guesthouse operation. Superb breakfasts, premium quality mattresses and fittings, spotlessly clean. Baubie, the owner, is unfailingly courteous and kind, and ensured that I have had a very comfortable stay. Much appreciated. Will come straight back here next time I'm in PE.

We recently stayed at Summer Blue for a few days. We were made to feel welcome by Baubie and her team, from the moment we arrived. She made sure our requests were catered for. The different breakfast options got the thumbs up from our children. The rooms were clean, elegant and just perfect for us! The parking safe and secure. Summerstrand is definitely the area to stay if your in PE, the Boardwalk only minutes away. We will recommend Summer Blue for your PE stay and hope to visit again and again.

After spending 2 months in Port Elizabeth teaching, my family came to stay and we chose the Summer Blue Guest House. It was such a friendly and inviting environment, and the rooms were just perfect. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Summerstand is defintely the area to go if you are staying in PE, and this is definitely the guesst house to choose!

My family and I recently stayed at Summer Blue after our road trip through the Garden Route. Baubie was absolutely fantastic and made us feel at home the second we arrived. She even went out of her way to arrange a shuttle for us very early in the morning for our flight to Johannesburg, and her husband drove my dad back to the guesthouse after he dropped off the rental car. We stayed in a lot of fabulous B&Bs throughout our two weeks in South Africa and Summer Blue was definitely one of the tops, with Baubie definitely being the most outgoing and welcoming host. I would absolutely recommend her place to anyone visiting the area and will book there again when I return in the future. Thanks so much for a great stay!!

I highly recommend this guest house to anyone looking for accomodation in PE. BAubie and her team were excellent hosts and she made sure all our requests were catered to from airport pickup to different breakfast options during our stay. It is a clean, cozy, and elegant guest house which catered to our large group. We have three children and they made sure our rooms were adequate for both the baby and the young children, with sofa beds and a cot for the baby. No second thoughts in recommending this guest house so all you have to do is book and make sure you have a good time there!
