Our comfortable fully furnished two-bedroom flat has everything you need to have a super stay close to the sea. Although the flat is on the ground floor of our double story house, you have private access to the flat and parking within the premises.
Our 2 bedroom flat could be the best place for you and your family of 2 - 4 to stay! You will be 5 min drive away from a "Blue Flag" beach (this is a South African rating for the best clean beaches!), two rivers to explore. Swimming, hiking, dining - everything you want to do on holiday. Our town is close to a number of highly recommended game farms, so, if you cannot afford a long stay in a game farm, why not stay with us and book a day-game-drive to see Africa's "Big Five"! You are also close to some small historic towns dating back to the 1820 British Settlers, who brought valuable expertise to our country. Grahamstown, a city with the most beautiful churches and the annual "Grahamstown Arts Festival" (in July) is only 40 minutes drive from our home. Kenton on Sea is a small town, but with enough shops to satisfy your needs - from two butcheries, a chemist, a large grocery store and many small gift shops. Enjoy snacks and meals in our many small restaurants (one is a floating restaurant on the Bushmans River) and coffee shops. There are quite a number of shorter and longer hiking trails for those who love walking - some along the beach, and some in the mountains. If you like horse riding - on the beach - it can be arranged! Do you love art? We have a number of local artists in and around our town, their art work displayed in various galleries and shops. Do you like fishing? This can be done from the shores of the two rivers or the sea. (Bring your own fishing gear, of buy from one of our shops.)
You have private access to the flat. We live in the top story of the house. On arrival you will receive the key to the flat, feel free to come and go as you please.

We will be available if you need us! Otherwise you are welcome to come and go as you like. We will give you information about the surrounding attractions and activities. If you book the flat while we are on holiday, we will make sure that you have access to the flat. We will provide a small "Starter Pack" of groceries, so that you do not have to rush to a shop when you arrive. (The content will be given once you have booked.) If you want to have a barbecue with us, we would love to arrange for such an evening - a true South African "Braai".

If you need to do some washing, we can arrange that you use our washing machine, although there is a laundry in town. If you stay for longer than a week, and need a domestic worker to clean the flat, we can arrange with our own domestic worker to do that at a reasonable rate.
No smoking in the flat! Pets allowed only with prior arrangement.
I am married to Samuel Murray. We are retired and live in a beautiful village on the eastern coast of South Africa. We enjoy music and nature - Samuel plays the musical saw, and I so sugar craft - some call it cake decorating, but I do not bake! :-). Samuel is a retired pastor, and I am a retired social worker, but still involved in community development as a consultant. Our four children live elsewhere in South Africa and in the Netherlands. We love hosting and introduce the area where we live to our guests, give advice regarding restaurants and other things to do. For oversea visitors we also share best places to go elsewhere in our beautiful country. We love travelling as well, and prefer to use Airbnb, as we have only had good experiences! As on of our children lives in the Netherlands, Europe is a preferred destination, as this gives us an opportunity to also visit our grandchildren!
