Beautiful Beachfront Accommodation with Raggy Charters
If you are still looking for accommodation during your stay in Port Elizabeth, look no further!
If you are after something a bit more like home; nice and relaxing, then stay with us out in the coastal village of Seaview. We are offering self-catering accommodation in our guest house which is run by the owners of Raggy Charters, Lloyd Edwards and Dr Lorien Pichegru. Your room will be overlooking the Indian ocean- a stone's throw from the sea.
Cost is R550 per person per night sharing and R700 per person per night single, however, if you join us for an exciting ocean safari you will receive a 20% discount! It is the perfect accommodation for any nature lover as there is plenty of wildlife to be seen as well as incredible plants and trees, with 93 species of birds (click here for a full list with photo ID). As you will be staying with the owner of Raggy Charters, expert marine guide and head of the Dendrological (tree) Society, Lloyd Edwards, you will be sure to get a thrilling educational experience.
Whales and dolphins are seen regularly, often breaching clear of the water right in front of the house. Cape clawless otters breed in the fresh water system which enters the sea nearby.
Seaview village, some 25km outside the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, has a small shopping centre with supermarket, laundry, ATM and take-away.
The house comprises three double bedrooms, one single room, three bathrooms, two kitchens, and two entertainment areas, which are also used as lecture facilities. There is also a spacious deck that overlooks the sea, and a warm and cosy indoor braai and pub area (for the winter months). The garden is totally indigenous, with over 100 species of trees. This is a wider variety of trees than found in the whole of Europe. You can see more photos of the garden, accommodation and wildlife you might spot in the Accommodation Photo Gallery which you can find here.
Besides a beautiful snorkelling area directly in front of the house, there are many other leisure and pleasure facilities located nearby. There are numerous game reserves located nearby which are worth a visit! There is a 25km stretch of sandy beach further up the coast, which is ideal for sand-boarding, and the study of sandy beaches. There are three Alexandria type indigenous forests within easy access, all of which can be reached by numerous trails.
