We were only there for one night. We went there because of their advertised R300 for two people in a double room, but when we arrived we were told they had some kind of plumbing problem and those rooms weren't available. We were offered a room with an ensuite tub and toilet for R450 and we took it. The first...

Well located property with amazing view from deck in the bush, but urgent need for revamp. Close to Port Edward, have restaurant and bar on premises. Room is spacious with bathroom but paint is pealing everywhere, damp smell all over, looks dirty but weren't dirty. Friendly staff, good service. Good night rest, quiet and as mentioned, amazing view from pool.

Stayed for a night while headed down the Coast; we were playing it by ear and we were lucky they still had a room! Really wonderful, chill place, just a couple minutes drive from the beautiful Leisure Bay beach (way better than the crowded Port Edward beach). Room was small, but clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was...

We stayed just one night but enjoyed it very much. From the poolside you get a panoramic view of the sea, ahhhh! We could have stayed for a week in the tranquil, peaceful atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent but would have preferred plunger coffee. Eric, you have put Port Edward on the map for us.

Ku Boboyi is a place to stay a week, a month or a life (as the owner Eric). We spent 2 nights there and it was wonderful ! The rooms are big enough, clean and quiet. We had amazing dinners in front of the ocean. Eric is very friendly and he makes you feel at home. He helped us to...

Unfortunately we visited during off-peak season and the chef was not present, so we were not able to have the food that is so often reviewed as excellent. Otherwise, the accommodation was quiet and comfortable, and it was a real pleasure to have a breakfast with the not-too-distant ocean in view.

After 4 visits in the past 10 years this place is still one of my favorite hostels in SA, if you just want to relax and take advantage of the really good food. If there is something to complain, a corner with a couch or some deck chairs would be nice. Not a place for the party crowd indeed which...

We only had time to stay for one night but we would have longer if we had had the time. The lodges are on a hill and go along with a nice view to the ocean.The room was big enough and clean, so was the bathroom. We booked the version without en-suite bathroom and it was totally worth the money....

We found the owner Eric to be foul tempered and very rude....he made the experiance very unpleasent, we had read a good review in the 'Alternate Route' so this was rather sad. The pool was nice but apart from that there is nothing much to do.
