I had a wonderful stay at your place with my family. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves. The quiet was exactly what we needed. Thank you !

The guest house was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was good, but it will be nice if they can serve it earlier or for a longer period to allow travelers to leave earlier. We were received very friendly. A very nice place that we can recommend to other people. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

We are off the R72, very well sign-posted, on the East London side of Port Alfred.

From East London:
Enter the town and just before the bridge turn right. Then turn right immediately into Park Road and Portofino is almost at the top of the rise on your right.

From Port Elizabeth:
Enter the town on the R72 and just after the bridge turn left. Then turn right immediately into Park Road and Portofino is almost at the top of the rise on your right.
