The owner- managed guesthouse offers friendly, relaxed and homely hospitality and your hosts Rod and Angela Farthing  will ensure that all your needs and comforts are met. The Lookout is very close to the town and all amenities and there are many good restaurants in the vicinity. Port Alfred's pristine beaches are only 3 minutes away.

  • A Lovely Christmas Stay
