   We visited CSF Resort in January 2017 on our South Africa trip which took us along the coast from East London to Cape Town. Although we only spent one night there, it was the most memorable accomodation of our whole holiday. We had a room in one of the beach Villas which offered a great view over the beach. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. We absolutely enjoyed our stay there and we highly recommend the place.

   Hi Fiona, Nicole & Chelsea I would like to thank you for an awesome time at Cape St Francis Resort. My sisters enjoyed their surprise day so so much. The staff at reception was very very helpful and caring. The treatments by Nicole & Megan at the Spa was amazing (wish we could stay longer) Our accommodation, Yellow Wood, was stunning and we felt like royalty, had a very good rest assured night's sleepy... Totally overslept Sunday morning. Did not feel to go home! The Food, lunch & Dinner at Joe fish was lovely as well as the service of your waiters - Manager, Lee was awesome.

“A great resort for couples and especially families with children”
We were given a large double storey house for the two of us because the smaller units were all occupied.The house which can sleep 10 was just off the beach . There were 3 bedrooms plus a master bedroom upstairs all with flat screen TV sets and DSTV decoders and coffee making facilities plus another unit above the double garage. A fully fitted kitchen and a large lounge/dining area which also has a TV. Every room has a private balcony. There is also a lovely covered patio and deck with pool. All the fixtures and fittings were top class.
There is also a public pool area at the large restaurant and bar.
In the morning two charming ladies came to the house with all the ingredients and prepared a gourmet breakfast for us in our kitchen and served us in the dining room.

“Brilliant self catering villas, lovely views of the sea. Stunning decor”
We were on a tour of the Garden Route but only had one night here, wish it had been 2 or more because it was absolutely wonderful. Nice restaurant on site. Villa had its own pool. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We even had breakfast cooked for us in our villa - excellent. Would love to return.

“Cape St Francis Resort”
We travelled to Cape St Francis Resort in August 2015. Really stunning location- biggest highlight was waking up and taking a walk on the beach which we could access directly from the villa. A place of many returns.

On many Sundays the Resort, have live music for the lunch. Very laid back, Great venue at Joe Fish the restaurant at the Resort. Varied menu and relaxed place to be. Sundays are always good. Relax by the swimming pool. Sheltered seating great in summer. Protected from the weather in winter.

“Beautiful place for a weekend away”
Great venue for a weekend away. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the pricing is very fair. Its also just a short (300m) walk to the beach. I plan to go back with my entire family soon :)
The restaurant deserves special mention here. I just came back from a 7 week trip in Europe and the food I had here was consistently as good, and often better, than the food in any of the hotels I stayed in there. The calamari in the restaurant was the best I've ever had. It simply melted in my mouth!

18th July 2015

“Excellent Resort”
Relaxing, no problems and staff was always helpful at any point at time. I would recommend this to anyone else but after being there for 2 weeks I would keep this place hidden to everyone as its a hidden gem!

Cape St Francis took my breath away, the accommodation was value for money and the people were all friendly and welcoming. Would go back to visit in a second. What I loved most is that everything is close - the accommodation, the bar, the restaurant, the beach - you can relax, don't have to drive far to get what you need. I would recommend this getaway to all anyone and everyone.

“Excellent service!”
We stayed here for 1 night during a roadtrip through the country. We had one of the beachfront villas, which was quite stunning, being bright, spacious and offering a great view of the beach. We specifically liked that it was designed so that the morning- AND evening sunlight fell into our bedroom - we loved this, actually! Unfortunately, it was already too cold for a dip in our own pool in the garden - we would have loved to get in there! Anyway, we also enjoyed the terrace, the good seafood restaurant that is part of the resort and - most of all - the delicious breakfast that was prepared by the staff at the ground floor of our villa!

11th June 2015

We really had a wonderful time, Lee Barker has really gone above and beyond to make us feel at home. The restaurant staff were excellent as well.  I would really recommend you to anyone. We are hoping to make use of you in the future.

“Sleeping with the waves”
Sleeping in the Villa located only several meters from the beach, you fall easy asleep with the roaring waves. The Villa is situated only several hundred meters from the beach. Enjoy endless walks on the beach by watching the waves of the Indian Ocean. The villa is spacious, the bedrooms with bath on suite are clean. Your views to the sea and the stunning sunrises are just magnificent. The morning breakfast prepared for you in the Villas kitchen by friendly and professional staff is outstanding. Nothing asked is too much. The restaurant Joe Fish on the property serves excellent fish dishes for dinner or lunch which you can enjoy either inside the restaurant or outside on the deck. Enjoy recharging your batteries at Cape St. Francis Lifestyle Resort.

We really had fun within the establishment. Both kitchen and house keeping staff makes you feel welcome. This place caters for all types of trips as I was updated by the housekeeping staff. I liked it when she stressed how safe the place is.

“An Experience Not To Be Missed!”
Cape St Francis Resort is so conveniently situated on the dunes of a most unspoiled beach. From the moment you arrive you feel a sense of relaxation as the resort and staff cater for safety and a secure environment for children of all ages. The beautiful cozy family cottages are spotless, serviced daily and boast an array of amenities. Great entertainment areas for socializing with friends in adjacent cottages. An amazing restaurant on the property with the best local calamari along the coast. The staff in the resort are so friendly and go out of their way to assist you,wether  it be firewood or cleaning your cottage for your next breakfast relay. We will return and highly recommend you visit this resort on your next weekend away!

Our port elizabeth guest house

We are situated in Newington Street, Richmond Hill on a quiet tree-lined lane, filled with historic and gracefully restored buildings. The peace of the picturesque neighbourhood belies its location in central Port Elizabeth where the heartbeat of the city pulses nearby and the main N2 highway that charters motorists in and out the Bay is but a few streets down.


The saying goes that in Port Elizabeth nothing is more than 15 minutes away and with Richmond Hill this most definitely rings true.
