About Dolphin's Cove

Dolphin's Cove is located in a secure tropical complex in St Francis Bay, close to the port, restaurants and airport. The apartment is unique, with an emphasis on entertainment. The unit consists of three spacious en-suite bedrooms and features two TVs with full DStv, a large remote double garage, ADSL and wireless Internet connection, a balcony, separate laundry, home gym, and mooring for an 18-foot ski boat.

Touted as the country’s answer to "little Venice", St Francis Bay lies just 90 km west of Port Elizabeth, and comprises a series of little man-made canals and waterways that lend themselves perfectly to boating, swimming and other water sports. The small boat harbour offers sheltered anchorage for fishing vessels and other ocean going vessels, and each home has its own mooring.

St Francis Bay is the playground of dolphins and whales, with the magnificent bay and white sandy beach offering some of the safest bathing on the coast, as well as fine opportunities to fish from the rocks. Surfers flock here, as they do to most parts of this coast, for its waves. The fabulous beaches are surrounded by nature reserves, making them alive with the calls of birds and an incredible escape from the city lifestyle that ensnares most of us.

In addition, The Irma Booysen Flora Reserve lies close by and offers wonderful opportunities to see local fynbos. Otherwise guests' time is given over to pleasure, eco and river cruises, surfing, swimming, and generally enjoying the good life.

A beautiful beach house with an amazing view of the Port and Bay area. A beautifully decorated family home - great kitchen, several entertainment areas. You are welcomed and shown around by Caroline, who was most helpful. great relaxation spaces as well - too many features to mention.
