Description

The space

St Francis Bay's best family home on the canals.

Enjoy this lovely family home on the canals. With four en-suite double bedrooms including a large master suite in the main house, combined with an attached cottage with a double bed and twin beds upstairs, and a double bed and lounge downstairs it can comfortably accommodate 12. In addition the loft also has two sofa beds.

With its own small private beach The Tide House is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, or as a base to explore the beautiful Garden Route of South Africa. The Tide House is the perfect location from which to explore the best of the Eastern Cape, or to just sit on the deck with friends and family and enjoy an evening braai and some drinks.

Equally suited to summer and winter The Tide House is very open plan allowing it to be opened up to benefit from the heat of summer, and also has an open fireplace with chimney and underfloor heating in the main house and master suite making it very comfortable for a visit in winter.

About an hour's drive west of Port Elizabeth lies the pretty holiday village of St. Francis Bay. The village is almost entirely made up of beautiful thatched cottages and is one of the Garden Routes most memorable (website hidden). Francis is known for its quiet canals, huge lagoon and beautiful (website hidden). Francis Bay is a paradise for families and watersports enthusiasts: It boasts white sandy beaches and ideal conditions for surfing. In season - August to October - whales can be seen in the bay of St. Francis. The Tide House sits on the canal and is a short boat ride away from the lagoon at the entrance to the Kromme River, and veritable playground (for kids and adults) from low-mid tide.

What an incredible spot... pictures just don't do this place justice!! We stayed at James place for 6 nights and loved it. It has its own private jetty, so hire your own boat from Little Venice Adventures and make the most of sundowner cruises around the canals. We will definitely be back!!

If you enjoy a quiet peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of city life then this is the place to visit. A beautiful house on the canal which can be enjoyed by all ages. Thank you James for allowing us the opportunity to share your home in little paradise.

What you see is what you get! Lovely for big families, lots of space. Close to everything with a gorgeous view. Beautiful little beach sand by canals for kids to play. Not ideal for little children as no gate between house and river but for older children an absolute dream!

Wonderful house on the canals with small a private beach. Conveniently located near to the village. Perfect for families. The house is spacious and works well. We were 2 couples with 5 children and they had a fantastic time. The house has everything you need. We would definitely recommend it.

We had the most wonderful holiday with James' place being home away from home. Conveniently located on the canals with the beach, river, shopping village etc on your doorstep. The house is equipped with everything you need right down to beautiful story books for our little one. It is great for entertainment and the house is set up in such a way that three small families can get away together and still have their own quiet space. We will be back!! Thank you James!
