A lovely quaint cottage at the rear of Joy's home, this place was lovely to stay and in a nice neighbourhood of PE. The hosts were a pleasure to meet and the room was perfect for what we needed with a modern bathroom and sunroom

Private, self-contained spacious and secure garden cottage, with all conveniences. Ideal for long stays and close to good restaurants, shopping centers and the beach front.

A lovely spacious garden cottage - private and quiet. We also really appreciated the yogurt, rusks, fruit and breakfast cereals that were additional extras provided by the host.

This is the second time my boyfriend and I stayed here. It is a very relaxing clean space. We enjoy the simple breakfasts and the peaceful environment. The space gets cleaned every day, which is also a bonus! We would stay here again.

Joys cottage is central and very pretty, with a great little pool and very cute dogs who greet you excitedly when you arrive home. Dstv was a nice addition to our stay. We loved the rusks and the fact that there was milk and a few bits in the fridge when we arrived after a very long drive from Cape Town. The bed is massive and extremely comfy and the shower is wonderful. Such a pity about the water restrictions as the bath is gorgeous. We would definitely stay again.

We were made to feel most welcome and really loved our room. The attention to detail made for a great overnight stay. The home is well situated for easy access to restaurants and for quick access to the freeway. Highly recommended.

My husband & I live in our wonderful Victorian home in Walmer PE which is in the front of the property. The cottage is nestled in the leafy garden behind the main house. I am retired and love gardening & dabble in a bit of painting and we both love walking & travelling. My husband runs his insurance business from our home. We are parents & grandparents and love a full house with all our family when they visit Port Elizabeth.
We ran a large Bed & Breakfast for 20 years so have enough experience as hosts and love meeting new people.
