Wow, we didn't want to come back to Johannesburg. We would recommend Bon A Vie to anyone visiting East London - Gonubi. The hosts are great and the rooms are stunning!!

Wow! What a mini holiday. The establishment itself, the owners and staff made me and my family feel at home from day one. Though the weather was somehow not so warm but slightly rainy for the first two days, the establishment itself made us feel warm and, indeed, at home. The last two days were miraculously turned into a real holiday. Thanks to Martin, Joan and their wonderful sons. They made use of their own vehicle to show us around. My children loved it and a big thank you guys, your hospitality deserves a space in my diary. Another booking is a MUST for November/December. Thank you. Sydwell Radebe,

I would recommend it to anybody, anytime. The apartment was superb, the breakfast fit for a king, the welcome from the owners very warm and helpful. A must for any occasions. magali lengacher, South Africa

Great stay in Gonubie - Me and my family stayed at Bon a Vie in Gonubi for 13 days in March/April 2008. We have two little kids (2 and 3 years old), and we all had a great holiday in Gonubi. It was better than being home, top standard a great service - everything was done to give us the best possible. I will strongly recommend Bon a vie to all thinking about spending time in East London and Gonubi. Hopefully well come back sometime.

We had a wonderful stay. Bona a Vie is situated in a quiet and safe residential area yet is close to the beach and major shopping centres. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. The establishment's facilities are all of a high standard and well maintained. I doubt that there's anything currently available that would beat the venue in terms of value for money. The hosts, Martin and Joan made us feel completely at home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend bon a Vie to friends. We will definitely be back.
