From R900 per Unit



Birah is situated 100 km from East London and 50 km from Port Alfred on an exquisite and one of the most unspoilt sections of the SA coastline. If you want to just chill and get away from it all, Birah is the place to be. You have the best of both worlds - panoramic views of sea and river all within 10 minutes walk to the beach. The beach stretches for miles and walks can be enjoyed, often not seeing another soul. It is not uncommon to see seals on the more remote stretches of the beach. The Birah river is closed most of the time and provides an ideal playground for young children or for the older folk who like to relax with a Sundowner.
The house is fully furnished and can sleep 8. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have double beds. The 3rd room has 2 single beds and 2 sleeper couches. The kitchen is fully equipped and open plan. There are 2 bathrooms, one upstairs (bath) and one downstairs (shower). The house is built for outdoor living with a deck as well as a patio with awesome views.
The house is elevated with stunning views of both sea and the Birah River. Bird life is beautiful with a number of resident fish eagles. Birah boasts some of the best fishing on the entire SA coastline, especially for the famed Blue Fish (Bronze Bream).Other common species are Kob, Pignose, Mussel Cracker, Galjoen, Raggies, sand sharks, etc. Lots of fun can be had in the river with a light rod and good catches of grunter, kob, garrick and the occasional rockod can be enjoyed.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Rates are deemed correct at time of publication and may fluctuate depending on supply and demand. Establishments maintain their rates online and any differences should be referred to the Establishment's staff. Quotations once accepted are binding.
