When arriving at African Breeze, everything was taken care of. The house was very well appointed and had everything we wished for. Our hostess was extremely friendly and helped us where she could. We would be back for sure.

It was fantastic, the house was far more than we expected in a lovely location - just outside town.

We stayed for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed the area, the sea and the accommodation.
African Breeze Beach House is a fully-equipped, stylish and comfortable holiday home situated 5 minutes from the beach. This charming wooden house has three-bedrooms, sleeping up to six people. Situated in a peaceful, natural environment, African Breeze is an ideal retreat to relax and unwind. It is also perfectly situated to serve as a base from which to explore the many tourist attractions of the Eastern Cape and Garden Route.
Having only recently opened, all equipment and fittings are new, fresh and clean. Comfortable quality mattresses with percale linen ensure a good night’s rest. Flat screen satellite TV, leather sofa and spacious living area, together with games, books and DVDs cater for your need to relax.
The house has a Bohemian-chic interior design and sweeping ocean views. Smell, hear and see the ocean from the comfort of your bedroom. The kitchen is spacious, well lit and equipped with modern appliances. There is a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer. Two of the bedrooms have queen-size beds with full en-suite bathrooms. The third room has two single beds with semi en-suite bathroom bath only. The house is secure with security gates and armed response alarm system and is close to a number of amenities including four restaurants, a sports pub, and cash dispensing machine, supermarket 4 km, pharmacy, liquor store, and police station. It is also close 15 km to Colleen Glen where one can buy up-market country crafts, organic produce, fine wines and a variety of delicatessen items. There is much to see and do in the area including game farms, nurseries, tea gardens, touch farms and golf.
Beach view has, arguably, the most beautiful coastline in the greater Port Elizabeth area. The Island Nature Reserve part of the Baviaanskloof Mega-Reserve is also a short drive away. Other activities include sand-boarding, quad-biking, whale watching and paragliding. Visits to the local African informal settlement can be arranged. The city of Port Elizabeth, with its airport, modern shopping malls, banks, Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex and cinemas is a scenic 25 km drive away.
