The Beach House
Ranked #5 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2013

This is a small guest house on the beach front with fantastic views out to sea. We stayed in a room upstairs and would see whales, and dolphins everyday and wake up to the sound of the sea. Isaboa runs the guest house and does a truly wonderful job. Our room was beautifully decorated, clean and really comfortable. The breakfast was always good, even having home baking, different everyday!! Nothing was too much trouble, we felt really welcome and at home and will definatly return again.
It is also in a really good position for Port Alfred Marin, shop, restaurants. all of which Isoboa has good knowledge of. Thank you for a perfect stay!!

Room Tip: Have an upstairs room for the best view

We appreciate your gracious review - thank you!

Your timing was perfect to see the whales - and my...were there LOADS of them in 2013!

The dolphins have been very active throughout the year and the guests always appreciate their "visits"

Will keep you to your promise of "definitely" returning...

The Bech House is located directly at the ocean, the upper floor has the perfect view. Breakfast is phantastic and the chef (Isabeau) makes everythink happen.
We stayed there 2 nights, will defenitely choose the same location when back in that area.

What we wanted: somewhere comfortable, with the sound of the waves, a view of the sea, and "no mess no fuss". What we got: luxury, space, an idyllic view complete with gently breaking waves, unobtrusive yet most friendly hospitality, and a great breakfast to start the day! A superb location for a quick 48-hour break-away, or longer if time permits. Walks on golden beaches just a chip and a putt away.

The Beach House is the perfect place to unwind, relax, enjoy the sea view and get away from it all. You will not be disappointed and the great breakfast coupled with the good service will impress you.

The beach house is a beautiful place right at the dunes (only a small road between) - u can hear the waves from your bed. Rooms are very tastefully decorated, breakfast is very good. The lady from the management is very helpful and friendly. There are rooms in the upper floor with sea view, we had a room on the ground floor without it (looking on the garden and the fence). Clean small swimmingpool, well-tended garden.
There are 2 things I want to critize: for this price, I would expect a better bathroom - a tap with a fountain directly into the face due to a damage is not that nice. and: on our 3week-tour in SA, this was the most expensive hotel. I think the price is justified for the upper floor due to the sea view, but not for the ground floor rooms.

We have been very impressed with our stay at The Beach House. Isabeau - the manager - did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. We chose a room( #6) on the first floor overlooking the swimming pool. Although the views are mainly of a collection of similar properties around we decided that this was better than the seaward side that can get a bit windy.
The room was large enough - not as large as some on the ground floor but perfectly adequate - with a comfortable super king bed and beautiful crisp bed linens.
The bathroom is not large but contains a large bath as well as a freestanding shower and vanity and toilet .
Issabeau was always on hand to serve guests - with a smile and friendly manner - her flapjacks, muffins and scones were lovely and breakfast was hearty and well presented.
The swimming pool area had sun loungers and a seating area out of the full sun.
The breakfast room and guest sitting room are beautifully furnished and lovely for relaxing.
We would thoroughly recommend The Beach House for a stay in this area

Room Tip: Ask for no 6
