Description: Check our listing on Airbnb for more details.

We are located off the beaten track in a truly beautiful part of Southern Africa, half way between East London and Durban on the Wild Coast. Surf is good all year round but gets epic during the winter months. Various surf packages are available.
The Space

The lodge consists of a few Rondavels (traditional Xhosa round houses) with communal kitchen lounge and shower facilities. It is set in an unspoiled Xhosa village overlooking the ocean and the Mapuzi river below. Rolling grass hills is the norm around here so no shoes necessary unless you would want to go on one of the many coastal hikes in the area.
The huts are comfortable and clean. Cooking facilities gas or outside fire braai area.

Guest Access

You will take the Coffee Bay turn off from the N2 and follow it as it winds its way through the Rural villages down to the coast. this is about an hour and a half drive so don't rush this stretch as it is full of pot holes, goats, cows, donkeys. Remember that kids and animals have right of way here.
It is advisable to fill up with fuel at the Sasol near Xuno or if you coming from Durban side Sasol in Mthatha. Bring supplies with if possible as local super markets are quite a trip and may not stock all you need.

Interaction with Guests

We are lucky enough to be located between five of the best surf breaks in the country so surfing is what we do around here. Coffee bay offers fairly good surf all year round and is great for beginners. Mbomvu point, right hand seldom works but when conditions are right, the waves will be World Class. Mapuzi point is in walking distance and gets a little hairy to say the least. Mdumbi right hand Point is a short drive away and is deferentially a must for any surfer traveling this coast. In between Mdumbi and Lwandile you will find Secrets left hand and The Slab right hand works on small swell. Lwandile is a right hand point in the same direction just over the next hill and can get world class when conditions are favorable.
We over guided surf tours, village tours and hikes. Surf lessons for beginners are also available.
Evenings are spent around the fire place cooking dinner, crayfish, fish, Seafood is in abundance and can be obtained from local subsistence fishermen or it is always fun to pop down to town with the shuttle for some interaction with other travelers living in various accommodations in Coffee bay.The Neighborhood

Quiet at night no lights so the stars here are extra bright. Kids play on an unmarked football field below in the day and people are extremely friendly, most but not all speak English and it is polite to stop and greet every one on your way.

Getting Around

It is a short hike to Coffee Bay 2.5 km or 1 mile along rolling grass hills along the breath taking coast. Mountain biking is a great way of getting around and will get you fit if you are not already.
We have a shuttle that runs twice a day or when requested for guests without there own transport. This is four by four country and we do have a small 4x4 vehicle for hire if necessary remember to take it easy as roads are unpaved.

Other Things to Note

Internet access is available but we discourage the use of electronic equipment after dark unless you have charged it during the day as we run off solar power.
Surf boards are available for hire but bring your own suite.

House Rules

Respect and consideration for others and nature are the only rules that apply around here.
