Host review score 10


I love to share the beautiful view and tranquility with my guests.I only have the two rooms,and my aim is to ensure my guests of a very pleasant stay ,with privacy and undivided attention.I like them to feel at home.

I was born and raised in East London but relocated to Pretoria after school to study.My husband and I have returned after many years.My husband is still working ,and I am spending my time keeping my bed and breakfast running. I am in my sixties .I am very fortunate to have a very good house keeper ,Linda Sikoti. I also enjoy gardening although it is challenging so close to the sea and river.

Beacon Bay is a very quiet neighborhood, but close to shops and all other amenities,but not with in walking distance.Bonza Bay beach is not the main beach of East London,but it is also close by.The rooms have a view of the river mouth into the sea.
