About Spinning Reel Beach Cottages, Chalets & B+B

Situated on the edge of a quiet beach lie our secluded self-catering beach cottages. These are exquisite chalets with breathtaking sea views, and we also offer bed and breakfast accommodation overlooking the beach. Wonderful sunrises, the beach on your doorstep and set away from (but still within two minutes drive) of the centre of Port Alfred.

Owners were friendly. Loved the peace and quiet. Also loved the fact that you make your own kind of fun. It was lovely.

We loved our little 5 night holiday! The cottage had all the amenities and space we needed, but the best was the amazing views and sound of the sea and being exactly 60 steps from the beach (I counted). We loved the peace and privacy, the wonderful long walks and sunrise on the patio. We would love to come once a month!! but will return as soon as we can and hopefully bring relatives again.This was our second stay at Spinning Reel and we found it upgraded since a couple of years back. Just heaven on earth, and Port Alfred main beaches are awesome. Guido's on the river is our favourite restaura...

We enjoyed the views and the location of the cottages - close enough for extended family stays, yet far enough that each cottage has its own privacy. Accommodation was clean and well equipped with own braai. Welcome was hearty and the worker on site was really helpful. Walking distance to the beach and safe environment. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and will be back in the future.
