In the 'hood, Beachview as a destination

The little village of Beachview that earned its name for obvious reasons when one considers the spectacular view of the beach from the homes here, lies on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth - about 25 kilometres from the city centre.

Directions to Dolphins View Guest House

From the North
Head towards Port Elizabeth. Bypass Port Elizabeth by taking the N2 to Cape Town / Humansdorp. Approximately 20km's after Port Elizabeth (on the Cape Town side) is our turn-off Greenbushes / Seaview. (It is the 2nd turn-off after Port Elizabeth. The first turn-off is Bramlin Street / Lorraine. Do not take this one). See "Cont." below.

From the West (Cape Town)
After passing Van Stadens, the next turn-off is Blue Horizon Bay, don't take that. The next turn-off on the N2 after that is Seaview / Greenbushes. Take this one and turn right - following signs to Seaview. See "Cont." below.

From the Airport
Drive out the airport, and turn left. The road will take you over a railway line then head straight towards the robot at the corner of Heugh Road and 4th Avenue. Turn left into Heugh Road. This road also becomes Buffelsfontein Road, but carry on driving as this is the road which will take you to Seaview without turning off anywhere (it's about 26km's). When you get to Seaview, turn left at the stop street opposite the Spar. See "Cont." below.

When you have taken the off ramp to Seaview, turn left and drive down for 3,5km's and you will get to Cow's Corner. This consists of a garage, a couple of shops (Mikromark) and a restaurant - The Elephant Walk.
Drive down a further 6km's and you will then be in Seaview where you will see a Kwik Spar and a Police Station. Opposite the Kwik Spar is a road going down to the sea (Elizabeth Road and Maitland Road). Drive down to the sea and the road curves so that you drive with the sea on your left for 3,2km's. Then look to your right and you will see the guesthouse - triple story from the front. Drive up (right) the next road to get to the back of the house where the entrance is.
