Guest Comments

Our family vacation at Settlers Sands was worth every penny. Karen Lang was awesome in following up personally with me via e-mail whilst I was planning.
The unit we were staying in was awesome. We had a sea-facing, beach-access, private and secure unit. Everything that you would need in a home-away-from-home that you could think of was available. I loved it, hubby loved it, and the kids loved it too. There is an alarm system, so we could lock up and go exploring without having to worry about anything. Ten out of Ten for everything!
Even the weather held up for the week, making our family vacation perfect.
I will be recommending Settlers Sands to all my family and friends. It was a great break and a lovely stay.
We loved visiting Port Alfred, and we loved staying in Settlers Sands. I would return again. Thank you Sleeping Out and Karen Lang!
