The Beach House
Ranked #5 of 27 Port Alfred B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2017 via mobile

We stayed in this guesthouse in August, 2017.
Our room was really nice, quiet and the bed was comfortable too! The balcony was looking over the sand dunes and the sea.
Coming out from the house, you need to cross a small road and you are right on a stunning beach!
Isabeu is a wonderful host, she can suggest great places to go to, and she provided us the most delicious and generous breakfast and coffee every morning with a nice smile.:)
Port Alfred is a cute little, quiet town. If you are visiting, we can highly recommend to stay here!
P.s. Riet River is a must - but do not follow google maps if you want to go there!! Rather listen carefully to Isabeau's directions.

Most of the rooms have a sea view. Beautiful dunes and quiet beach in front of the house from where one can make long walks. Great sunrises for the early birds.
The room was spacious and clean. Downstairs one can enjoy a swim in the pool or take a sunbath. Nice lounge as well and good breakfast.

There are various excursion to do from Port Alfred, like a day visit to one of the nearby Game Reserves.

We travelled with a friend from the Netherlands to Port Alfred and stayed at The Beach House for 1 night. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Isabeau. The rooms were very comfortable and had a lovely openness to it.. The breakfast the next day was delicious. We can for sure recommend The Beach House.

We had four beautiful days at The Beach House. The location was superb overlooking the dunes to the Indian Ocean. We were on the upper floor which had the best views. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped. We used the garden and pool area which were very pleasant.

The breakfast was a pleasure and Isabeau was a delight. We would love to return.

We stopped here in between Christmas and New Year. Great location right on the beach, and even though it faces onto the beach road there was no traffic noise to speak of.
Isabeau, the manager, was very welcoming and friendly and quickly made us feel at home.
Very good breakfasts cooked to order.
Booked late, so didn't have a good choice of room. Ended up with one of the garden rooms on the seafront but without a view of the sea. Room was OK, but bit on the small side and the fixtures and fittings showing their age a bit. However, the guest house sitting room and pool are very cpmfortable and spacious, so didn't need to spend much time in the room.
Room was a bit pricey for what we got for the money, but then again it was very high season!
