“Awesome!”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

I loved this house, beautiful views, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. It's a great vacation rental house for a group of people as there are 5 rooms and 4 bathrooms. The pool was sparkly and beautiful. The house is right on the beach (although it's not really a swimming beach or easy to walk on, there are rocks everywhere). It's about 20km outside of port elizabeth, and an easy drive. Would highly recommend this. The service was great too - helpful, responsive and not intrusive.

“Great destination, great house”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2014

Had a perfect holiday at the Waterhouse, beautiful house with plenty of space for everyone. Woke up to dolphins, swam in the pool and enjoyed the braai and separate fire pit! Practical and well stocked kitchen with good dining area for eating in, good local pub (Barnacles) too when we couldn't be bothered to cook. Location was brilliant with countryside feel though only a short drive into PE. Good local Spar too for all the groceries. Loved it, will be coming back!
