Villa de Mer

A Villa de Mer Guesthouse is located on the beachfront in Port Alfred and is a mere 10 min walk from the Kowie River mouth and restaurants. Situated exactly half way between Port Elizabeth and East London, 150km in each direction, Port Alfred is the perfect stopover place or base from where to explore the surrounding area. Malaria free Addo Elephant park is a mere 100km away, whilst the Sibuya Game Reserve is within 27km. The vibrant town Grahamstown, is a 45 min drive away, whilst the historical town of Bathurst is just up the road. One of our great assets, the 43 Air School is 10 min outside town whilst the Stenden university is a stones’ throw from A Villa de Mer, known to the family of the students, as home. Whilst Port Alfred is a small town, we boast with a modern shopping centre just outside town. We are very fortunate to have the best of two worlds – situated on the coast, in close proximity to many game reserves, all the modern amenities – yet we experience the peace and quiet of a village atmosphere!
A Villa de Mer guest house is a modern and stylish Mediterranean guest house and wraps around the pool and garden/barbecue area.
Guests can relax in the communal lounge upstairs with large TV, or sit out on the balcony, have a drink and enjoy the view over the Indian ocean. Those guests who prefer to curl up with a book, there is a large reading room downstairs overlooking the pool. For the more active guests, there are endless white beaches and dunes to walk. For golf enthusiasts, the Royal Port Alfred Golf course is a 5-minute drive away whilst the Fish River Sun Golf course is a few kilometres outside town.
The bright rooms are fitted with a 19 channel DSTV satellite service, coffee/tea facilities, a refrigerator, a safe. The bathroom is equipped with a hairdryer, bathrobes, swimming towels and guest amenities.
A Villa de Mer Guesthouse breakfast is well known for their scrumptious breakfasts. Served in the dining room and on sunny days alongside the pool.

The place looks lovely and is very clean. Service was at all times excellent. And I am very fussy.

My family had a great time at Villa de Mer... we were well rested, and were spoilt with the tasty breakfast, the beach is just across the road, and we had stunning sea views from our room. Everything was in excellent condition, and the place was really very clean. One senses a calmness in the staff and the decor, it shows just when you enter, so it really makes you feel at home. Thanks for having us!
