    "Sandy is a very sweet, friendly host but the cottages were really not what I expected. They need a lot of work and are really shabby"

    "A little run down and a wicked dirt road, BUT a wonderful view of the sea and listening to the waves was worth it."

    "I cannot remember the last time I relaxed this much! Ferry Point Cottages is not just a holiday destination, it's a place that becomes part of you and you become part of the family. Never before have I had such amazing hosts. We spent 6 days in this special place, but we have made friends for life! We will be going back there for our honeymoon in July! Can't wait! The accommodation is as down to earth and real as the owners and staff members. For a memorable experience in a rustic setting that blends in with nature, this is the place to be! Just be prepared to be sad when you have to leave!"

  • "Everything you can possibly need..."

    "This is a heavenly place where sea, beach, jungle and river meet. We camped at Ferry Point for 4 nights and the bird life, 360 degrees unbelievable views and humming ocean during the day, as well as the and the lovely after dinner drinks at the pub with Sandy and her family (not to mention with Bugger the Boer bull who barks from his viewpoint on top of a table, before settling in for his next nap) makes for the most magical experience. The rest of the town is also a friendly experience and you can honestly not ask for better views, from long untouched beaches, and unpenetrable jungle to the mighty river and lovely little local pubs and restaurants. Also, the Pondo people going about daily life is an interesting part of the truly authentic feel of Port St Johns. A must see for the more enlightened traveler who is able to uncover the true beauty of a place."
