About Bodmin Cottage

Bodmin Cottage offers a tranquil private stay in the heart of the garden suburb of Walmer in Port Elizabeth. Our newly renovated one bed roomed cottage is tucked away amongst established indigenous trees with abundant bird life. The Cottage is perfectly suited for couples or families with children who prefer space to run around outside in the fully enclosed garden. There is a cosy braai / barbecue area which is ideal for outdoor meals.

The cottage is set back from the road and has its own entrance, well separate from the main dwelling. Guests are ensured of complete privacy and are free to come and go at their own convenience. There is safe off street undercover parking behind remote controlled gates. We are ideally situated close to major shopping centers, beaches, hospitals and the airport.


Our self-contained flatlet has a bedroom with en-suite bathroom and separate kitchen / lounge / dining area. The fully carpeted bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed, and generous built-in cupboards with hangers provided. The bathroom has a shower with variable jet settings. Cotton linen and luxury towels are provided. There is laminated flooring throughout the remainder of the cottage.

The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, microwave, gas hob and oven, toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery. Complimentary tea and coffee are provided, as well as firewood for the barbecue. A fan and oil heater is available.

A lovely little cottage with a beautiful garden. Ample space for myself and my two kids. The kitchen has everything one could need and the water is hot and wonderful. Hosts are wonderful too. Will be back!!! Thank you so much Vic and Analise.

Verified reviewvery good

What a little gem. Bodmin Cottage was great and suited us perfectly. It was clean, neat and very well laid out. It had everything that we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots and pans and it was so easy for us to prepare meals. It had a lovely private garden which was great for my 18 month old son to run around in. There was even a BBQ with wood supplied (just a pity we could not make use of it). And it was such a lovely touch to have some milk and cookies waiting for us on arrival. We will most certainly be staying at Bodmin Cottage again when we visit PE.
