The historic area of Port Elizabeth is referred to as Central by the locals. It is full of beautiful buildings and colourful characters. Right in the heart of this area and close to Fort Frederick are a number of old houses turned into self-catering apartments by an energetic lady called Cathy. The apartment I stayed in was tastefully decorated, clean and fully equipped. Everything worked. These sound like basic things but somehow I didn't expect this level of comfort for the money. I expected a place to spend one night but instead I could have stayed for weeks. Cathy was always available when I needed advise or help.
It is really nice to get more that you expect now and again. This was one of those times.
