My stay at 3040 on Freshwater can only be described as a refreshing holiday experience. Situated in the town of Port Alfred, on the Eastern Cape’s Sunshine Coast, this accommodation establishment is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful getaway with a loved one or as a family.
On our arrival, we were greeted at the entrance by the owner, Sanumi, who made us feel immediately welcome. We noticed that the guest house has been built around a beautiful Milkwood tree. This unique sight amazed me and further added to the aesthetic feel of this amazing establishment.
After we made our way up the stairs to our unit, the Milkwood House, Sanumi took the time to give us some advice as to what to do in and around Port Alfred as well as recommending some great dining spots. This personalised service was certainly appreciated.
The moment we settled into our stay, we knew that we were going to be taking it easy, after a busy week. As it turned out, 3040 on Freshwater was the perfect stay for us.
Our unit appeared to be the ideal holiday stay, with its sprawling wooden slate couches, large kitchen and five bedrooms. The couches were extremely comfortable and make a great place to enjoy an afternoon siesta.
Braai facilities are located outside, whilst the wooden benches make for a great spot to enjoy meals with friends and family.
The fact that this guest house is surrounded by the natural environment was a major highlight for me, being a lover of nature myself. This establishment also contains a number of reminders of its close proximity to the beach.
Upon our departure, both my friend and I agreed that 3040 on Freshwater deserves its place as one of the most sought after accommodation establishments in Port Alfred. Our stay allowed us to sit back and relax, whilst containing all the modern amenities one would expect.
Whether you are looking for a family vacation, a romantic getaway or simply travelling for business, 3040 on Freshwater has it all.
