    General information

    Richmond House Cottages in Port Alfred, Sunshine Coast, Eastern Cape, South Africa - upmarket self-catering for discerning guests.

    Our three charming, serviced self-catering cottages are comfortably furnished and generously equipped. Each has its own special ambiance - all offer a cosy, tranquil retreat. Our guests enjoy privacy, birdsong, indigenous coastal bush and shady ancient trees.

    Richmond House is a 7-acre hilltop estate on the West bank of the Kowie River. From parts of the property there are breathtaking views of the river and beach. It also has an illustrious 170-year old history displayed in a Museum on site: it was originally owned by the Hon William Cock, 1820 settler and entrepreneur, who ‘moved’ the river, built the harbour and settled in the town’s manor house, The Castle (1840).

    Both Fig Tree Cottage and Ship Ahoy Cottage are perfect for a couple or small family - two bedrooms each with twin and double/King-size beds, an open-plan living space, one full bathroom with bath & shower and an outside shower open to trees and stars. Kitchens have automatic dishwashers.

    Sandymount Cottage is a romantic bed-sitter with covered verandah, well-designed kitchen and bathroom with shower. Ideal for single guests or a couple.
