As the name suggests The Lookout Guest House, Port Alfred, commands superb, panoramic views of the sea, the Kowie River, the Royal Alfred Marina and the colourful small boat harbour.

Situated on the R72 midway between Port Elizabeth and East London, Port Alfred, it is the ideal base from which to explore South Africa's magnificent sunshine coast, or to make excursions into the historically enriched settler country of the interior.

The owner-managed guest house offers friendly, relaxed and homely hospitality, and your hosts Louise & Alan Corrans will ensure that all your needs and comforts are met. The Lookout is very close to town and all amenities, with many good restaurants in the vicinity. Port Alfred's pristine beaches are only 3 minutes away.

The 3 self contained units are all elegantly furnished, luxuriously appointed, have their own separate entrances and boast magnificent views. They are fully equipped with most of the modern conveniences, and the well fitted kitchenettes are a real treat. All are serviced daily unless otherwise requested. Secure off-street parking is available, and barbeque/braai facilities and wood are provided. The deck and splash pool is the ideal place for sun lovers to relax, or to enjoy a refreshing drink after a long day.

The white, sandy beaches offer safe swimming and lovely long walks, and are extremely popular with the surfing fraternity. The Kowie River, which is tidal and is navigable for 29kms, is a paradise for boating, bird watching, waterskiing and fishing. Deep sea anglers and scuba divers can charter trips at the harbour.
