1Milkwood is a secure executive home in the exclusive suburb of West Beach in the coastal town of Port Alfred. Situated in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Stretching out between the cities of Port Elizabeth and East London lies the Sunshine Coast, a land of small towns, pristine beaches, beautiful rivers, and warm-hearted people.

Aptly called the Sunshine Coast, because this coastal strip has more sunshine hours than any other part of South Africa. This facilitates the enjoyment of a myriad outdoor activities such as quad biking, surf sailing, deep sea fishing, kite surfing, skiing and hiking. Explore navigable rivers, dive and explore the rich coral reefs, go horse riding along vast golden beaches, or take a safari through the many malaria free game parks in the area. There are arts and crafts aplenty, with many acclaimed artists living and working here. Visit their studios and watch them at work. The Sunshine Coast also boasts many fine restaurants and even its own brewery!

1Milkwood is offered for short term rental, and is ideal for family holidays, traveling project teams, or touring groups. A refreshing alternative to cramped hotel rooms and restrictive B&Bs. A home from home, it comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests. It has its own private garden with many of the protected Milkwood trees and the beautiful Clivias which flower early spring. The indigenous bird-life is prolific. It is in a prominent position and yet is secluded from neighbours.

It is ideally located for both summer or winter holidays. It is well situated on the ridge, affording magnificent 180 degree sea views from East Beach, through the Kowie River mouth pier, to West Beach, Kelly's Beach, Flame Lily and beyond. It is only a 500m stroll to Kelly's Beach, a safe swimming beach with Blue Flag status. In winter it is cosy with sunlight streaming in for most of the day and it affords great whale watching opportunities from the comfort of the lounge, kitchen, dining area or any of the bedrooms. All four bedrooms have sea views and some have golf course views too. The house has high ceiling which keep it cool in summer but also has ceiling fans in open areas and underfloor heating.

The sunrises and sunsets are fantastic.

Port Alfred

The seaside town of Port Alfred is the most sought-after holiday destination on Route 72. It is situated on the Sunshine Coast which is aptly named for the most sunny days anywhere in South Africa. Known for its wonderful temperate climate, endless pristine beaches and friendly village atmosphere, this small coastal town midway between East London and Port Elizabeth boasts a world renowned reclaimed marina, glorious surf, magnificent deep sea and river fishing (the Kowie River can be navigated by boat for 23km inland) and the laid-back lifestyle so beloved by all visitors, many of whom become permanent residents. Boats can be launched at the Small Boat Harbour in the Marina and deep sea fishing or river expeditions can be arranged.

For golf lovers, there is The Royal Port Alfred Golf Club course which was designed in the early 1900s by Dr WH Atherstone and is within walking distance from the house.

There is adequate food shopping with a Super Spar, Pick 'n Pay and Rosehill Mall boasts a small Woolworth Food store as well. There are numerous restaurants available to eat out including some with a wonderful view along the river or at the water's edge.

Magnificent beaches, horse riding, bird watching, hikes, deep sea fishing, outward bound adventures, scuba diving, malaria free game parks, elephant excursions, zip-line adventures, etc, etc are available for daily entertainment. Call the Tourist Information office on +27 (0)46 624 1235 for more details.

Port Alfred is also home to Stenden University's South African campus, the 43 Air School, and is the local government centre for Ndlambe Municipality.

"Beautiful Home with a Stunning Sea View"

Stunning home with beautiful large bedrooms and lovely view of the sea from the rooms and lounge areas. House is well equipped - we did not want for anything. House keeper (Veronica) was extremely helpful and pleasant. Thank you for a fantastic stay - will definitely return again.
