Wonderfull, the owner is amazing, the room was very clean, well-equipped. It is very close to everything- the boardwalk, the international airport and located in quiet area. I wished that every guest would be like that

Stayed for six nights with my brother and sister in law, we had a wonderful stay, breakfast was great, pool lovely and the fact their were only two rooms meant we had the place to ourselves, secure parking and walkable to the Boardwalk and sea front. Nicki made us very welcome, we will return when in PE again.

Very good for one night stay. Clean and very accommodating to requests. We asked for assistance to freeze some goods and they went out of their way for assistance. Rooms very clean and area quiet. Thank you

We spent four days in a 'home away from home". Thank you for the hospitality and friendly service. The food was scrumptious home-made meals. Far better than restaurant food. Will definitely come again.

Stayed in Calico Guest House in August 2016 when I was visiting my sister in Summerstrand. The room was great, breakfast was very good and the staff was extremely friendly. Nicki is the friendliest hostess you will ever meet, and I would definitely recommend a stay!

Calico Guest House was perfect for us this past weekend. Ideally situated and close to most spots in Port Elizabeth; but in a quiet suburb at the same time. The room has everything that you might need - fridge, microwave, kettle, TV with Satellite - and obviously a bed too. The breakfast was up there with the best that I...
