            The host Carel was very accommodating, served a great breakfast, and it was really great to find bottles of water in the mini fridge!

            Bayside Guesthouse”

            privacy, location, price

            The Bayside Guesthouse is perfect for both business and holiday accomodation. The Hosts are helpful and friendly and the location is in a safe area with enough eating places as well as activities. The rooms are comfortable with enough space and are not too close together so there is enough privacy. The beds and pillows are of good quality and the rooms has all the things you need such as safe, fridge, plug points at the mirrors (you would be surprised how many don't have this) as well as a kettle with tea, coffee, milk etc. I would definitely stay here again when I am back in PE and would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice comfortable place to stay without paying huge prices.

            Neat, good breakfast and very friendly staff

            Had a good stay at the guest house. It was neat, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were tasty and staff were very friendly. You do not feel as if you are intruding on someone and are free to do your own thing. Wifi was quick but did disconnect every now and then. Only negative was that I do not think that the room size was as per advertised. It seemed smaller.

            I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It really felt like i was coming home and i was welcomed as a member of the family. Will be back if i am in PE again.

            Spacious room. Excellent breakfast. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts

            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the end of our trip to South Africa. Stephanie & Cliff were fantastic hosts and the room was extremely large, clean and comfortable. Bayside is very close to the beach in a very peaceful location with easy access to the airport. We would wholeheartedly recommend.
