Port St Johns, Wild Coast - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:The Eastern Cape is known for many things like friendly people and cool weather but not much about accommodation. However, a detour to Port St Johns proves that it's fair to rank it amongst the best when it comes to cosy, Port St Johns accommodation and Outspan Inn is one of them. Outspann Inn can be found in Port St Johns', which stands on the glorious wild coast, on the beak of the Umzimvubu River, a river that cascades into the Indian Ocean. This means that Outspann Inn has the advantage of the most exclusive views of the beach.
Outspan Inn embodies everything that self catering in Port St Johns has to offer. Only a short stroll away from the Inn leads you to a pristine, tame beach that is ideal for long strolls and basking. The sea front views that this Port St Johns B&B boasts are ideal for watching the 120 exotic and indigenous species of birds that inhabit Port St Johns. Each room is comfortably finished with en-suite bathrooms, the furniture is kept minimal and modest so it doesn't compete with beauty that Port St Johns already has.
Some rooms have DSTV and come with access to a fully equipped kitchen for all your self -catering needs. The fenced pools are the perfect excuse to bring the kids along to this year's family vacation and the "˜pet friendly' policy means you don't have to leave the dog with the neighbours, just as long as they are well behaved and don't interfere with the other holidayers.
Being 3-star rated Inn, Outspann promises quality service and modesty for your port St Johns accommodation experience. And while you are being captivated by the rugged landscapes of the Eastern Cape, you can make time to drop by the pub and restaurant on site for brunch or that late night snack.
