About The River House

“The River house” at Colchester is situated in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. On the one side you overlook the rolling hills and Southgate entrance of the Addo Elephant Park and on the other side the Sundays River and majestic dune fields.

The Sundays River runs through the village of Colchester which is 25 minutes drive from Port Elizabeth. Jeffrey Bay, Cape St Francis, Kenton on Sea, Bushman’s River, Port Alfred, Tsitsikama and even Plettenberg Bay are all close by, offering interesting day trips. The world famous game reserves of Addo, Shamwari, Schotia and Lalibella are all in close proximity.

This large family home is a few minutes stroll away from the river bank and slipway to launch. Sundays River offers entertainment and fun for the entire family. Your choices vary between surf and river fishing or endless walks along the vast beaches and towering dunes. The long and winding river is ideal for all water sport, kayaking or peaceful bird watching with many sandy “beaches” to provide safe swimming and picnicking.
