Superbly located in a prime spot in Port Elizabeth, close to beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife, our Beach House is a comfortable and relaxing space that volunteers can call home. It is a quiet sanctuary where volunteers can find refuge from the world and recharge their batteries after spending all day working at the project of their choice. It is a place where friendships are forged, and memories are made.



The Beach House is made up of various kitchens, living areas, ample bathrooms and 12 bedrooms that can accommodate those who prefer some privacy in a single room, such as older volunteers; and shared rooms for those who prefer sharing. A recent renovation project has breathed new life into the house with added features that include an entertainment area with braai facilities, a custom-made bar and a large pool that you can happily dive into on a hot day.  A great area to socialize with your fellow volunteers from all over the world.  The interior of the house is laid back and cosy with an African feel and boasts a panoramic sea, sunrise and sunset view for volunteers to enjoy during their leisure time.


Our Beach House with all its facilities, amazing views and convenient location, makes your stay with Khaya stand out from other providers.
