Each of our five bedrooms have magnificent views overlooking the small harbour, the Kowie River, and the unique arched Kowie Bridge which displays multicoloured lights each evening. The rooms are all tastefully and elegantly decorated, equipped with DStv, bar fridges, hairdryers, and tea-and-coffee making facilities. Three of the bedrooms have separate entrances which lead onto private patios and the tranquil garden.

There is a large open-plan lounge and dining area with spectacular views. Enjoy a sundowner after a long relaxing day. There is secure parking for up to five cars.

Let your hosts Pat and Des assist you in planning your stay and experience all that Port Alfred has to offer. Port Alfred is known for its wonderful temperate climate, pristine endless beaches, friendly village atmosphere and magnificent Kowie River, which flows out into the warm Indian Ocean.

Port Alfred is one of the few places that offer a remarkable range of activities from fishing, sandboarding, surfing, canoeing, horse riding across the beaches, hiking, and two well-known golf courses.

A beautiful calm and tranqual atmosphere with an amazing view and friendly people


01 June 2014

We stayed at Dockside Guest House for one night before we started our hiking tour from Port Alfred to Fish river mouth.


13 April 2014

Fabulous house; stunning view; friendly owners - we had a lovely stay!


13 April 2014

It was only a one night stay over, but we really felt welcome and at home. We had the downstairs room with a sliding door walking into a garden that had a lovely view of the yacht harbour. The room was clean with enough space. Remember that it would be more advisable to drink bottled water in this area. Our host, Niel was attentive and helpful. Many thanks, we enjoyed our stay.
