A colleague and I spent the night at African Sands B&B. We were welcomed by a friendly and helpful owner, willing to assist and give advice on the local area. Rooms are well equipped with it's own kitchenette and satellite TV reception. Accommodation is price is market related and well worth it. Thank you for a very comfortable stay.

What a wonderful stay at African Sands. Comfortable, spacious air conditioned room with fully equipped kitchenette, but even more important, hosts Patrick and Jeanette are friendly, accommodating and nothing is too much trouble for them to make you comfortable.

I did not find the noise from the incoming aircraft intrusive. All rooms have a separate entrance which is a big plus. The B&B is close to the airport, beach and freeway, so it makes access easy.
