Nautilus Guest House, Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape
Searching for excellent seaside accommodation that offers luxurious facilities, a peaceful environment and quality service, then look no further than the Nautilus Guest House in Bluewater Bay, Port Elizabeth!
4-Star in rating but 5-Star in service excellence; from the moment I arrived at the Nautilus Guest House, I was warmly welcomed.
I knew I was in for an unforgettable experience as I was led to my room – the Sundial, also known as the Honeymoon Suite. Situated on the upper floor, I had uninterrupted views of Algoa Bay and the Indian Ocean, which I could enjoy from my spacious balcony. The suite also has its own private entrance.
After settling in, I was given a tour of the rest of the building. The owners, Charma and Shaun, have truly endeavoured to create a serene escape for both business and holiday travellers to the Bay. The best part, the guest house is within reach of the city so you can still go about your business and still be able to quickly return to the guest house to relax and soak in the sun.
Accommodation at Nautilus Guest House
There are seven rooms to choose from at Nautilus Guest House, each one with its own en-suite bathroom and luxury amenities to keep your stay as comfortable as possible. With anything I could need in my room and generous hosts making sure I was comfortable, I wanted for nothing during my stay.
The Sundial Suite comes with an antique pillar-post King-sized bed, and en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, air-conditioning, a TV with DStv, Nespresso Machine, tea and coffee-making facilities and free access to Wi-Fi.
The beds are fitted with crisp linen which made me feel like I was sleeping tucked inside a cloud, and fresh towels for the bathroom as well as other necessary amenities. Not only was my room spacious, but it was also well-kept and beautifully decorated, so much so I almost didn’t want to leave.

Facilities & breakfast at Nautilus Guest House
