“Very special guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2010

Aquasands is an outstanding guesthouse. We felt very spoilt staying there. Our room was tucked away and extremely spacious, with a wonderful dressing room and facilities such as a fridge, toaster etc. Everything you could think of needing was in the room and the flowers and chocolates were a lovely touch. The swimming pool was also lovely, it was just a shame it was so windy! The breakfast was delicious.

Wonderful experience, Reynard and Deborah we so accommodating. I was only there for 2 days on business but immediately felt at home and wished I could have stayed longer. I will definitely stay there again and it in a superb spot right opposite the beach.

We stopped off in Port Elizabeth prior to going on safari in the Addo and were so pleased we selected Aquasands. Situated one minute from the beach it was ideally located for us. When on the beach turn right and walk up to the new Samroc penguin centre and then to Pine Lodge where you can eat the best ribs in SA! Back to Aquasands, the accomadation is luxurious and good value for money. Our room was spacious, clean, had an incredible bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Breakfasts are top class with a fantastic fruit salad and Reynard's attention to detail second to none. Richard is an attentive host and even droppped us into town one evening for our meal! We can only thouroughly recommend Aquasands and will stay here next time we visit PE.

Stayed at the aquasands for 1 night, before we headed off on our safari and cannot fault our stay. The area was central and safe and the room of an excellent standard. The owners/staff could not have been more helpful. After a good nights rest despite the wind we had a fabulous breakfast of fresh fruit, full cooked breakfast and toast - I would not hesitate to stay here again.

A gem of a place set just outside the centre of port elizabeth, in a great location for the scenic walks along the front, as well as the nearby shops and restaurants.

Staff, and owners were more than helpful throughout our short stay and did their best to accomodate our every need (including a 5am breakfast before our airport departure!!)

The contemporary design is fab, and the apartment was immaculate. If your in the area, make sure you check-in!

Aquasands Guesthouse should be on the shortlist of everybody who is planning a trip to Port Elizabeth.

Situated in the upscale neighbourhood of Summerstrand just around the corner from the beach it exudes a mixture of style and comfort. The B&B is divided into 4 individually decorated units with their own courtyard or terrace grouped around a garden with pool and sauna. The rooms –and equally important: the bathrooms- are spacious and stylish. Personal touches like flowers next to the bathroom sink and a folder filled with restaurant suggestions further add to the room's charm.

Deborah and Reynard, your hosts, will do everything to make you feel welcome. They make restaurant reservations, suggest guesthouses for the rest of your itinerary or print out the weather forecast; in other words: they will walk that extra mile just to be certain that your stay is as agreeable as possible.

Do be certain not to miss breakfast in the patio where you are served a stunning fruit platter and the most delicious homemade muesli!

We have spent three nights in Aquasands and we were like in heaven. Deborah provided us full information about our trip in the Garden Route and we did exactly what she mentioned. And everything went extraordinary well. They look a bit distant but they are very friendly. The deck unit is clean, spacious and bathroom is very nice. All the house and even themselves are full of little details which made our stay very comfortable.
