About Wings

Wings is a comfortably furnished unit, situated in the beautiful town of Kenton-on-Sea, midway between Port Elizabeth and East London. This is where you can experience beaches as far as the eye can see, unspoilt by time and consumerism, where two rivers meet and run into the Indian Ocean.

Our guest suite is separate from the owners’ living area and forms the downstairs wing, featuring its own garden and entrance. Braai facilities can be provided as well as safe parking.

The unit consist of two en-suite double bedrooms and another third room, a lounge area with DStv and an open-plan fully equipped kitchen and breakfast bar. The bathrooms have full-size baths, with showers above the baths. For groups, a third bedroom with two single beds has access to the second bathroom via a separate door. All bedrooms have unobstructed views of the river and the sea.

Wings overlooks the Bushmans River Mouth, with long vistas along the shore and up river, where sunsets can be especially beautiful.

One of the most picturesque resorts in the country, Kenton-on-Sea lies between the mouths of the rivers Boesmans and Kariega, so that it is hedged on three sides by river and sea. The area offers the nature lover and eco-tourist alike a place to relax and unwind in a safe environment. Both tidal rivers have an abundant bird and fish life and are safe for swimming and other water sports. Whales also make this their home and Kenton-on-Sea has whale families that return every year to visit.

Other local activities include all types of water sports, hiking trails, mountain biking, township tours, horseback beach trails and deep sea fishing.

Beach: We have a Blue Flag beach and rock pools ideal for children to play. We overlook the Bushmans River Mouth - the sea and the dunes, with magnificent sunsets!

      We liked the view, the closeness to the beaches and the sea & river. Enjoyed a swim at Shelley beach, had great supper at Stanley's and admired the sculptures of Maureen Quin in Alexandria. Will be back.

      The nicest of hosts, very helpful and eager to make one's stay pleasant. Not all rooms are the same, but the one we got had a wonderful lounge with terrace and beautiful view over the river. The place was clean, and practically everything worked.Note that the main beach is a little far away, and the directions to Wings are a confusing for someone not familiar with Kenton

      WE stayed at Wings from 28 Feb - 2 March 2015. The view is spectacular, the accommodation was clean and comfortable and our hosts were very friendly, lovely people! Definitely recommend it.

      I cannot imagine any nicer people on earth than the owners of Wings. We were thoroughly spoiled by their welcome and their hospitality. Wings is located about a 10 minute walk from the center of Kenton, and it is comfortable and private. The most remarkable thing about it, however, are the lovely, breathtaking views. Summer evenings can get a bit hot, as the rooms face west, but sundown views make up for that. We would love to spend time here again.
