About Brisan on the Canals
St Francis Bay is the unexplored jewel of the Garden Route and is situated only 100 km from Port Elizabeth en route to Cape Town. St Francis Bay can also be a wonderful stopover for guests going on to Addo Elephant Park or the perfect overnight prior to flying out of Port Elizabeth on your final leg of your journey around South Africa.
Nestled on the incredible and unique tidal St Francis Bay canal system, Brisan B&B on the Canals is the ideal accommodation venue to experience the wonders of the beautiful village of St Francis Bay, with its white walls and black thatch roofing. While the uniformity of the style in St Francis Bay lends itself to the graciousness of the area, every house is individual and commands attention.
Brisan B&B on the Canals offers guests superb accommodation to suit everyone. All our beds are extra length and of top quality to ensure a peaceful nights rest. Only 100% cotton percale linen is used and all rooms have a tea/coffee tray, dressing table, hairdryer, guest amenities and television.
Our Luxury Room upstairs is ideal for those who enjoy accommodation with extra space, or for families, as it is a large room with a king/twin bed, lounge area with fold out double sleeper couch, luxury en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. This room leads onto a huge balcony with built-in barbecue facility, patio furniture, and sun loungers, overlooking the private beach and the rest of St Francis Bay canals and Kouga mountains. In this accommodation, you can enjoy the privacy and tranquillity of the area while relaxing on the deck with a long, cold drink, cup of tea or coffee, or your own ‘braai ’while the children build a sandcastle or play the shallow waters on the private beach next to the Jetty. Speak to the captain of Brisan's own Barge "the Swan of Brisan" and arrange a cruise around the canal or upriver. The tidal canals ensure 100% fresh seawater daily.
The other superb accommodation consists of three canal facing rooms, each with its own entrance, patio furniture, and Weber barbecue. These rooms offer guests very comfortable accommodation with king/twin beds, luxury en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. Two of the rooms are adjacent to each other and create the ideal accommodation for those traveling together or for families with 2 or 3 children.
The remaining accommodation is upstairs. A large, sunny room with a small private balcony overlooking the side gardens. This room has king or twin bed, bath and separate shower, this accommodation is also suitable for a family as there is space for a stretcher or airbed mattress.
Brisan Bed & Breakfast was recently extended to include an enclosed patio with roll down see-through awnings and stainless steel built-in barbecue. This is where guests can enjoy their gourmet breakfasts in all weathers while basking in the beauty and tranquillity of the surroundings overlooking the St Francis Bay canals.
Prospective guests MUST enquire before booking to make sure that we are able to assist them with their pets.
