Stylish, innovative and chic, Carley Studios in Woodlands, Port Elizabeth, is all this and more! The moment I walked through the doors I was warmly welcomed and dazzled by this beautiful new establishment.

The studio is fitted with classy vintage furniture, and the double vintage doors that lead out to the beautiful gardens bathe the studio in light, making it warm and cosy – much appreciated during the cold winter days!

While filing out the necessary forms for my treatment, the staff at Carley Studios were so friendly and made me feel more relaxed and comfortable. You can tell that these ladies love what they do and have a way with people.

My fabulous manicure treatment at Carley Studios

Once all my forms were taken care of, I was introduced to my therapist Angelique. She greeted me with a welcoming smile and took me to the treatment area where I would get my Express Manicure treatment.

Having well-groomed hands can help you look and feel amazing, and Angelique went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable and refreshed for my manicure. After choosing the perfect colour (a bright orange), she got started on my manicure.

While Angelique was busy primping and priming my nails, we casually chatted away. She has only been at Carley Studios for a week, but you can tell that she takes great pride in her work and is a perfectionist when it comes to nails.

Perfectly shaped and painted, my nails have never looked better. I was so impressed with Angelique’s work; there was not a single flaw to be found.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
