Based in Port Alfred lies tranquil Marina Magic in the safe and secure Royal Alfred Marina. This is a home-stay, where guests can enjoy a beautiful, peaceful spot to unwind and explore the serene Sunshine Coast and all that the diverse Eastern Cape has to offer.
The guest suite, situated on the first floor of our home, consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms with doors leading to a balcony with Marina views, the perfect setting for guests to enjoy their morning coffee or sun downers.
The main bedroom has a king size bed, ceiling fan, a TV with all DStv channels, a microwave, a bar fridge and an espresso machine. The bathroom is fitted with a toilet, a basin and a spacious shower. The coffee and tea making facilities also serve the second bedroom.
The second – smaller - bedroom has two single beds and a ceiling fan. The private bathroom across the passage has a toilet, a basin and a shower above the bath.
The suite is ideal for a couple, or a family with two children, or a group of maximum four people. However, it is also perfectly suited for two people travelling together, who prefer separate bedrooms and bathrooms.
Guests are welcome any time to make use of the patio area downstairs, which is a space shared with the owners.
Marina Magic does not offer any meals. However, there are a number of quaint coffee shops and cozy restaurants nearby, that serve hearty breakfasts, delicious lunches and excellent dinners at reasonable prices.
The Marina complex offers the use of a swimming pool and tennis court at no charge. For a small fee, guests can make use of a squash court and a large heated indoor pool that are situated just outside the complex. A twenty minutes' walk will get you to the Eastern Beach where you can stroll for hours along beautiful, unspoiled beaches, or alternatively, catch a tan whilst watching the surfers catching a wave… A short drive will take you to some other stunning beaches in Port Alfred and more beaches are to be found along the Sunshine Coast.
The owners Liz and Kevin live on the premises most of the time and are happy to socialise. However, if guests prefer to be left to their own devices, they will gladly give them the opportunity and space to do so.
Liz, who is from The Netherlands, speaks Dutch, English, Afrikaans, a bit of German and French. Kevin is born and bred in the Eastern Cape and speaks English and Afrikaans, has a good understanding of the Dutch language and is very knowledgeable about the history of this area and other parts of SA.
