Sunshine Beachfront Cottage is a popular holiday destination located on the spectacular coast line off Birah Beach Resort. The cottage is located 55 minutes South of East London airport and 30 minutes north of Port Alfred by way of the R72 coastal road. The cottage is nestled between spectacular rolling sand dunes and the Indian Ocean on the one side, with scrub covered in brush and multiple species of acacia cyclops on the other. The cottage stands proudly on the edge of these magnificent dunes and a mere 200 meters from the ocean. The views of the Indian Ocean are magnificent, uninterrupted, spanning a full 180 degrees where visitors can watch dolphins and whales swim past on a regular basis.
Accessed by a private road and with ample parking, the cottage boasts an undercover braai area with seating and an open plan kitchen equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave, ice machine, and an adequate supply of crockery & cutlery. The dining area is located to one side and next to a built-in "log fire" place which leads onto the lounge boasting large bay windows. The lounge leads out to an undercover veranda on the ocean side furnished with deck chairs and table making it an ideal place to read whilst taking in the view and listening to the ocean pounding the shoreline.
The accommodation consists of 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The main room is furnished with a King Bed and situated on the front (ocean side) of the house with its own en-suite shower hand basin and toilet.

Rock and Surf fishing is popular and rolling oysters are a common sight on the beach. For boating enthusiasts the Birah River, a mere 200 metres from the cottage offers the opportunity for water-skiing and other water sports.

All-in-all a wonderful place to stay.
