About Benguela Elands Bay

Benguela Elands Bay is situated on the point in Elands Bay. It is very, very basic, spacious and cool, with views of the sea and mountain. Close to the beach, the house sleeps up to eight people.
The swimming pool is not being used due to water restrictions.
The main bedroom upstairs has a double bed with a bathroom in the room. Two single beds are situated next to the stairwell and two single beds are on the far end of the living area. The downstairs bedroom has a double bed, with communal shower and toilet next door. Sheets, pillows and pillow-slips are supplied, but guests need to bring their own bedding and towels.
The living room upstairs has views and access to the balcony. The kitchen is downstairs with an open-plan living room with very rustic furniture.
Next to Benguela is the bungalow, The Surf Shack. It is very also very, very basic: a bedroom with a double bed, 4 single beds in the living area. The bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet. The galley kitchen has a small fridge and freezer, 2-plate stove and ovenette. There is a braai area outside.
Elands Bay has an abundance of wildlife and over 240 species of birds to be found in the greater Verlorenvlei area. Flowers add to the rugged beauty, blooming these days as spring approaches. The area has a rich history and is a great place to unwind. There is plenty to do and see in the area. We keep our prices down to reflect the simplicity and rustic appeal of our holiday accommodation.

I`m describing my experience for the hope that certain points will be rectified by the owner for future holiday makers to experience a better and more accommodating stay.On arrival we were welcomed by a hip of open rubbish giving a terrible rotten smell blowing into the premises. I asked for it to be covered properly which was then done. The kitchen counter was so dirty and sticky all over that we never ate there and used the one upstairs as a simple wipe would not clean but needed a major scrub down. A lot of lights bulbs were not working. The main bedroom door does not lock even though it...

The name said it all (Shark shack) its a shack, mattress are worn, no kettle or proper kitchen ware. No microwave and brokken plastic tabel. Braai consists of bricks on the ground and toilet is not working properly. Coaches are worn and no curtains. Much beter accommodation available in the area.

I would suggest that the owner visits himself and seriously fixes the place up its looong overdue. I would only ever go back if..... all the terrible chipped plates, cups and cuttlery were changed. The place needs a paint, the floor needs a paint... the windows are broken, the curtains / cloth at the windows are NOT curtains, there was no kettle or toaster, the discloths were beyond disgusting, the chairs are broken, the couches are dirty. Its a hovel.

Has everything that you need for a holiday at the ocean at a very affordable price.

 In my opinion it should be advertised as a backpackers.If you're looking for an affordable spot for you and your mates, a definite yes, however the double bed in the en suite is extremely uncomfortable (Thin foam mattress and you can feel the planks of the pine base underneath). I would not recommend it to a family with toddlers. The pool is not fenced. It has a steep open stair case. The balcony balastrade is made up of lax rope that overhangs the edge, very easy to fall through, not to mention that the doors leading onto the balcony does not close (No latches).The location is fantastic!
