Refined haven of comfort: Your break from reality starts at African Sands Bed & Breakfast

Refined haven of comfort: Your break from reality starts at African Sands Bed & Breakfast

After a busy year, a well-deserved break undoubtedly rates as priority number one for almost everyone in the business world. I too recently needed to just put my feet up and forget about deadlines and targets – even for a day, and so decided to escape to African Sands Bed & Breakfast in Humewood, Port Elizabeth.

Upon arrival, I was warmly welcomed by African Sands’ manageress, Carol Allen who proceeded to usher me to my suite. As befits the old “first impressions says a lot” adage, I was immediately taken aback by the beautiful silver and white hues of my room, with the pièce de résistance being a luxurious king-size bed.

In total, African Sands has six suites, each including their own en-suite bathroom, television with selected DSTV channels, microwave and fridge, tea/coffee making station, toaster, fan, work desk and free Wi-Fi - for those that can never afford to completely switch off from the happenings in the corporate world.

Not only is African Sands situated within a few minutes’ walk from the PE beachfront, but also within minutes of the famous Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World complex, some of PE’s top restaurants and various other attractions. It is also within a few minutes of the PE International Airport.

Following a quick trip to a local eatery - let’s face it cooking is not something you do when on ‘holiday’, and a brief exploration of nightlife on the PE beachfront, I was ready for a night of complete rest in the most comfortable bed I have ever been in.

Needless to say, I woke well-refreshed the following morning and made my way to the dining area where I indulged in a delectable full English breakfast which consisted of two fried eggs, crispy bacon, two slices of toast, button mushrooms and sliced, fried tomatoes, complemented by a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice.

I really enjoyed my stay at African Sands and was left in no doubt that owners, Patrick and Jeanette Allen, have created the perfect refined haven of comfort where guests are assured of great value for money, outstanding hospitality and exceptional personal service.
