A warm welcome awaits you from your hosts Angus and Margaret Barnard

Shelly Beach Cottages are set within a lush secluded garden that provides several areas where you can relax in meditative thought, read in peace, or enjoy a glass of wine or intimate conversation. The pretty little bridge over a koi pond is another feature of the garden that promotes inner peace and tranquility.


The ground level cottage includes a patio braai area while the upper deck cottage allows guests to enjoy the magnificent ocean view and fresh sea breeze. Shelly Beach Cottages are within walking distance to Port Alfred's Blue Flag Kelly's Beach and borders on the Royal Port Alfred Golf Course.

Our rates are competitive and while the cottages are mostly self-catering, Margaret will, by arrangement, gladly deliver a continental breakfast to your door.

Shelly Beach Cottages was awarded 2nd prize in the 2015 Sunshine Coast Tourism Excellence Awards, which celebrate top performing accommodation in the Sunshine Coast area.   http://www.sunshinecoasttourism.co.za/
