A lovely place with a heart of gold. If you like a Bush veld vibe close to the ocean, this is for sure your destination. Security is very good with helpful and friendly staff. Can get cold at night as they're located next to the Bushmens river so make sure to take extra blanket (they do supply as well). Awesome variety of birds. Absolutely love this place.

My sister and I stayed at Woodlands a while ago and we loved it. It is very secluded and quiet. The rooms are cosy and comfortable and the bird song amazing. We felt safe and relaxed. Our host Shannon was wonderfully friendly. I am definitely going back. As an artist I found it so inspirational. We loved it!!

Had an excellent stay in the backpackers room. Felt more like a B&B than a backpackers. Great host and the site is beautiful with plenty to do and see, or just to kick up your feet. Superb value for money. Will come definitely come again next time I visit the area.

Our stay was very comfortable, peaceful & we enjoyed ourselves so much. We really had a stunning time. It is ideal in the sense that it is so close to the beaches: Kenton-on-Sea & Port Alfred, but on the outskirts, where it is less noisy with many open spaces. You feel so near to nature. I'd love to cosy up in the winter time!!We will definitely be using Woodlands again. Loved the experience!!

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

The staff at Woodlands were very friendly and helpful. Their food at The Goat Shed is very nice and freshly prepared. We stayed at Hideaway cottage which was warmly furnished and felt as if we were in our own home. The gardens are lovely to sit in and listen to birds and all their pets are so friendly. Will definitely be going back and telling my friends about Woodlands.

Stayed here for four nights in a double room with ensure which was really comfortable and clean. Maya took good care of us and provided some excellent practical information. Sharing strong coffee each morning with this great lady made us feel at home. The huge TV room was amazing with loads of channels and movies. Only a short drive to twin and gorgeous beaches. Recommend this place without hesitation.
Will be back!

The friendliest and most welcoming people in the Eastern Cape, Kenton is a wonderful place for a holiday. Our chalet was perfect, well appointed and clean, the restaurant's food was outstanding (and very reasonably priced) and the company was a laugh a minute. I can strongly recommend this resort.
