Surf Inn - Cape St Francis
Surf Inn can accommodate up to nine people in four bedrooms.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor. The first has a kingsize bed with ensuite shower, and the second has twin beds with a private bathroom with shower.
The lower level has a bedroom with 3 single beds and ensuite shower.
An open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room form the heart of the house.
The kitchen is fully equipped with modern utensils and a 5 burner gas hob, electric oven, large bar counter and Nespresso coffee machine.
Surf Inn also features an outdoor, undercover entertainment area with an enormous hearth, dining table, seating and drop blinds for additional shelter from the westerly winds.
This area leads into a separate kitchen and dining space with a bar counter and opens onto a covered deck on the beach.
For sundowners, escape to the crow's nest, a timber and glass lookout accessed via an external staircase.
With bench seating, a fridge and panoramic views of the Cape St Francis beach and village, it's the perfect place to sit and stare at the sea.
Had enough of the beach?
The elevated pool with its large deck and shaded pergola provides a retreat from the sand and the salt. Spiral palms, milkwoods and a large lawned area complete the picture.
Grab your board, stroll onto the beach and choose from any number of beach break peaks along the 3 km stretch of sand from Seal Point to the south, to Duck's in the north. Or paddle out at the iconic Seal Point, one of the most consistent right hand point breaks in the world. Mind the rocks...
A short drive away in the village of St Francis Bay lies Bruce's Beauties, the legendary wave featured in the movie Endless Summer.
The incredible waves of Super Tubes in Jeffreys Bay are only a 30km drive away.

Seal Point is one of the most underrated waves in South Africa. It is a true hidden gem. Located only a short stroll up the beach from your bedroom. It wraps into the bay and serves up extremely playful right handers. It is a very good performance wave. Works best on a South West wind and Southerly to South East swell direction.
Cape St Francis Beach Break
Level: All Levels
The beach break at Cape St Francis is the perfect playground for all levels. You literarily walk off the deck and into the waves. The beach stretches for about 3kms and there are left and right hand peaks everywhere you look. The water is always crystal clear, but can get a bit chilly in the winter months.
Bruce's Beauties which was made famous from the Endless Summer movies is a 15min drive around the corner. It normally breaks when the bigger Southerly and South Easterly swells hit the coast. If you manage to luck in to a session at Bruce's you will remember it for the rest of your life. It is an endless wave that can serve up some truly spectacular barrels.
Super Tubes - Jeffrey's Bay
If you are a surfer and you don't know of Jefferey's Bay, then you have been hiding under a rock. JBay is about a 30min drive from Cape St Francis. It works best or most consistent in the winter months between April and July, but generally if there is swell around JBay will be working. There are also many other breaks around the area besides Super Tubes, so it's definitely worth a day out.
