Summerstrand  Guesthouse accommodation Port Elizabeth

Kingfisher GuestHouse has eight individually decorated, air-conditioned guestrooms, in which we can comfortably accommodate a total of 12 guests. We regret that no person under the age of 16 years can be accommodated.

Situated in the upmarket beach front suburb of Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, Kingfisher GuestHouse is the ideal base for both local and international tourists, academia, and corporate visitors to the Friendly City. Individually decorated, en-suite rooms with private entrances and patios in tranquil surroundings, offer a base where business travellers can unwind after a day at the office, be spoilt with a superb breakfast, and can easily access the centre of Port Elizabeth, and the Port Elizabeth International Airport. Whether for registration or graduation, or for attending one of the many international conferences hosted annually, students, their parents, and academics from all over the world, use Kingfisher GuestHouse as a haven from where they attend activities at both the North and South Campuses of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU).

Leisure travellers, who either start or end their trip along the N2 Coastal Route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth via the internationally renowned Garden Route of South Africa, use Kingfisher GuestHouse as a base for experiencing many of the Eastern Cape of South Africa’s well-known gems. A leisurely 400 meter stroll takes one to the famous Pollock Beach, and the Summerstrand Village Shopping Centre. The Boardwalk Casino Complex, Humewood Links Golf Course, Hobie Beach and Shark Rock Pier where the annual Splash Festival and International Ironman SA Triathlon take place, are just minutes away by car. For the sun seekers, Port Elizabeth’s Blue Flag Beaches, Kings Beach and Humewood Beach, as well as the Mac Arthur Baths, are a stone’s throw away. Shopaholics can indulge in the luxuries on offer at Bay West Mall, Walmer Park, and Greenacres Shopping Centre, all within easy reach from Kingfisher GuestHouse.

Whether for surfing, sailing, yachting, windsurfing, kite surfing, hiking, bungee jumping, or a safari where the Big 5 can be experienced, visits to Jeffreys Bay, St Francis Bay, Storms River and Tsitsikamma, the Addo Elephant National Park, Seaview Lion Park, Kragga Kamma Game Reserve, and various other private game reserves in the area, make for easy day excursions.

Your hosts, Cilliers and Henk, invite you to the result of the craziest, most irrational, and totally uncharacteristic decision taken in 2005. Hailing from the world of engineering and academia, and with absolutely no experience in the hospitality industry, the two of us set out on the adventure of a lifetime, with nothing but a little capital, and enormous passion. Today, more than a decade later, we are still the owner-managers of Kingfisher GuestHouse. Our dedication to professional and personalised service, has resulted in Kingfisher GuestHouse being one of the top accommodation establishments in Port Elizabeth. We invite you to our home, our dream, and our own piece of paradise. Come experience the city’s friendliness!
