Lollee's Place a two bed roomed self catering cottage set in a quiet residential street 400 meters from the ocean in beautiful Gonubie. The undercover braai area and ocean viewing deck are very popular with family groups as well as working parties. We are not a party venue and do not encourage large groups who like to party until dawn and upset the neighbours.

The space
Our cottage is informal and family friendly. We want our guests to relax and feel at home.

Guest access
Guests have their own access and parking area - there is a very small patch of grass and undercover braai area and an ocean viewing deck. We have recently enclosed and put under cover the area which overlooks the garden - this is to increase the outdoor space for the guests as well as to offer protection against the weather and elements for the wooden windows and doors which open up here - we are busy building a fairy garden to entertain our younger guests - - once the plants have all grown I will update the photos for you to see.

Other things to note
There are pets who live on the property - our two little dogs get thru the pole fencing and love to greet guests. Our Rottweiler can not get thru the fence but I am sure he will also come along to say hello. We also have two cats who might come to investigate. We don't mind if you are travelling with a pet, so long as you arrange with us before hand. I run the cottage and maintain it myself so where as the bedding is always washed and clean, you might find the toilette is leaking again - or one of the windows won't open from last time I painted. If you can look past these things I think you will love our cottage and want to come back again.

Location

East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Gonubie is a unique village just outside of East London. We have the privilege of living right near the point so we have the sea just 400 meters away in two directions. There are coffee shops and restaurants along the beach front as well as the usual fast food franchises. Gonubie beach is lovely to swim - lie in the river mouth and let the tide wash you up or down stream. If you come in winter when the water is cooler - you can take walks, go fishing, collect shells. Or use our cottage as a base when visiting the nearby game parks.

We have two units in Gonubie which we let out to Guests. Lollee's Place is the 2 bedroom garden cottage - we have been receiving paying guests there for a number of years now and have tried to improve and renovate as the years roll by the the guests needs and wants evolve. 115 Main is the house were my late husband and I brought up two children - we lived there ourselves for 22 years - It is now open to guests as well. We received our first guests there this December 2017. I now live just 5 min away from 115 and Lollee's Place in a retirement village - the house and the cottage are totally self catering - we welcome the guests then leave them to their own devices - we are for the most private people so we like to respect our guests privacy as well. Every now and then we receive very special guests who want to chat and make friends - its amazing how many relationships have been built like this - the house and the cottage are now not just our home and a means to pay the bills but are also our hobby and pleasure. We do hope you enjoy your stay

During your stay
We live on the same property, our entrance is in Main road where as the cottage uses the Baisley Crescent entrance. I try to be here to greet and welcome our guests - however there are times when we do not see our guests at all. We love the friendly chatty guests and we respect the guests who do not want to be disturbed.
