Premier guesthouse found in picturesque St Francis Bay

The Eastern Cape’s best-kept secret is found in St Francis Bay and is a mere 1 hour's drive from Port Elizabeth. The town is reminiscent of a tranquil village with its meandering waterways, picturesque thatched houses, abundant birdlife, and endless stretches of golden beaches. There are also mild year-round temperatures and the longest sunshine hours on the South African coast—perfect for a beach getaway. The guest house itself is situated 150 m from the main beach, offering a premier stay with its pool bar and spacious wooden decks. Expect a total of 10 different en-suite bedrooms that are all uniquely and individually styled.

Best time to go to Garden Route

Best
Good
Acceptable
The best time to visit this region is in the warmer months of September to April. The Garden Route is rainy throughout the year and is a popular summer destination that can get busy over the Christmas holidays. You will soon understand why, as you feel the warm rays while kloofing, abseiling and paragliding or simply taking a dip in the azure Indian Ocean. The months of June to August are colder but will provide opportunities for whale watching (peaking in September) with more windless days to enjoy.
