Very Good Stay!
Myles Ritchie, South Africa - 07 October 2015

I stayed in 5, 3rd for 4 days last week. The rooms are simple but comfortable, all equipped with fully stocked kitchenette and good TV. Excellent value for money, spotless (and serviced daily) and very friendly owners. If you want a no nonsense cheap but comfortable stay in PE - highly recommended!

Close to the airport
lee gilad, Israel - 26 January 2015
The best choice close to the airport. They excepted us at 23:00 with warm hospitality!
rodney grove, South Africa - 28 December 2014
My wife, daughter and I stayed for 3 nights. The room was clean and very pleasant. 2 minute walk from the airport, but no noise at all, which we were very surprised by. The 5 minute drive to the beach was perfect.
Very Good
LYNN KRULL, South Africa - 24 September 2014
Recommended. Very clean and totally adequate for all our needs.
Steven Sutherland, South Africa - 04 August 2014
Everything was comfortable. Small details are important and in this day and age of convenience one would expect decent coffee /plunger and fresh milk and not cheap coffee and creamer Some rusks or biscuits would have also added a nice touch. it doesnt cost much, but makes a difference
Awesome stay

Slightly disappointed
monica mwale, South Africa - 04 February 2013
We were rushed as we vacated the room by 10:05am. It was like we had delayed our departure. The maid was already in the room and taking the linen at 10am!
The best of the best! SNQA - Merissa
Lani Allers, South Africa - 20 November 2012
We would like to thank you for the most peaceful, enjoyable stay anyone could ask for. A perfect balance between a hearty welcome and too much interference. Strict rules ensure harmony among all guests. Clean rooms and equipment. My mom is suffering from aggressive cancer and she was quite comfortable. Thank you once again!

5 Third Avenue
Richard Laing, South Africa - 06 October 2010
Staying at the place was very nice and I will make use of it if I have to go to PE again. The only negative comment is that the bathroom of my room was very small.

Jakkie Schutte, South Africa - 05 October 2010
Thank you, especially, for the transport to the airport, deadly on time.
Lyn Hardie, South Africa - 26 May 2010
Everything was great, but it would have been better for us if the fridge had been switched on and cold for our arrival, other than that no complaints at all
Rabin Maharajh, South Africa - 02 March 2010
Very good accommodation / facilities
Location was great - close to airport
Reut Ksantini, Israel - 23 January 2010
We arrived at the 5 Third Avenue Guest House late in the evening (~21:30) after a flight from Johannesburg and left early in the morning (~8:00). The guest house location was great for us since it was close to airport (5 min) and we still didn't hear any airplanes noise. The room was clean and tidy with bathroom inside. The owners were really nice and even drove us to the airport by their car in the morning without extra payment.
When you want a stress-free holiday
Moeketsi Jonas, South Africa - 11 January 2010
As we were from Joburg we found the place to be quiet, exactly what we were looking for, to cool down and take it easy in the "windy city". We really had a fab time, absolutely fabulous... Hope to go back there again i the near future....

Home Away From Home!!
Daniel Sodladla, South Africa - 05 January 2009
The place is exactly what every holiday-maker would want, clean and well-equipped for self-catering. My kids cried when they had to leave. We've renamed it into a home-away-from-away!

Excellent - can recommend
It was perfect.
Nyaniso Siguba, South Africa - 16 July 2008

The closest Guest House to PE Airport
Susan Stoltz, South Africa - 12 April 2007
This is the ideal place to stay when having to be close to the PE Airport. Edmar and his staff are friendly and very accommodating regarding departure times. The information booklet in our unit regarding shops and things to do in the area was of a great help. Thanks to Edmar and staff!

Our recent stay at the Guest House was one of the best experiences we have ever had while on judo tour. The owner was very keen and helpful and all our needs were catered for. I wish to thank you for including such wonderful places on your site, and looking forward to using your site again in the near future!
