Guest review from: Rinus van Niekerk

Just a quick word of thanks for the pleasant time we spent at Dempsey’s. It is exactly what two golfers need! Whenever I look for accommodation in PE again, I will start with Dempsey’s! Thank you Jack and Kathy.

Adventurer Zakie Odendaal rests her weary feet at Dempsey’s Guest House.

Adventurer Zakie Odendaal rests her weary feet at Dempsey’s Guest House.

This brave warrior woman, adventurer Zakie Odendaal, arrived on our driveway recently to put her feet up at Dempsey’s Guest House and to recharge her battery for the next leg of her solo walk along the SA Coastline. YES, she is walking the entire South African coastline on her own, along the beaches and as close to the coastline as possible. She started her journey at Alexander Bay in September 2016 and her goal is to reach Kosi Bay, northern most part of KwaZulu-Natal, by June 2017. She is already ahead of schedule! Travelling with a tent, some good walking sticks and a few supplies, her backpack is lead-like. She trudges 7kms per hour, averaging 50kms per day.

Zakie is a freelance photographer who has had this dream for many years to walk the SA coastline, a tough personal challenge, unaided and without sponsorships. Along this walk she has given deep thought to future walks and adventures, she is considering future sponsorships so that she can raise funds to assist projects to empower and improve the lives of poverty-stricken children.

We asked her what the highlights have been along this walk so far. “The kindness of people” she replied with a beaming smile “along with magnificent nature surrounding me at every step and turn.”

And your lowlights Zakie? Without hesitation she answered: “That would definitely be negative people!”

We wished her well and dropped her off at Bluewater Bay Beach. She was quick to start walking and we watched as she powered on into the pumping east wind. Within minutes she was a mere dot on the horizon, heading for Sunday’s River and later the dunefields of Alexandria, the largest dunefields in the southern hemisphere. Our wish for you Zakie as you close in on your challenge is firm sand for solid footing, mild beautiful weather and the continued kindness of people.

We have a dream…to be passengers in a helicopter flying over the SA Coastline. A couple of months would do it. Just saying, in case a mad helicopter pilot and a crazy photographer with generous sponsors… are listening:)

Guest review from:Bernice and Charles Mthombeni.

Great premises which we found to be excellent for wheelchair bound guests, the accessible shower proved to be a great convenience. The hosts Jack and Kathy were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We were also most impressed by their environmental commitment from saving water to recycling. We rate them 9.5/10, the half a point is for lack of DSTV- LOL

Guest review from: Terry Kanyutu.

Kathy and Jack are amazing hosts who make you feel at ease and at home. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable, a home that I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a hassle- free haven. The guest house is close to the shopping malls, the airport and the Port Elizabeth beaches.

Thank you to both of you!

Pop in at “A Peace of Art” on Main Road, Walmer.

Pop in at “A Peace of Art” on Main Road, Walmer.

“A Peace of Art” operating from No. 85 Main Road, Walmer, has been busily on the go since 2005. They are stockists of a myriad crafty goodies for mosaicing, scrapbooking, beading, wiring, decoupage and pewter work etc. They use these crafts and arts as tools to assist people in realizing their endless potential, simultaneously incorporating the teaching of life skills. We popped in to have a cup of coffee and a cake at their wee coffee shop in the garden and we were delightfully surprised. A peaceful ambience filters throughout the well-maintained store with a buzz of creativity oozing from the craft workshop areas. We took a peep inside the Quilt Shop which is also on the premises and we were impressed by the variety of colours and designs available.

In their own words:

“We challenge people to look beyond the logic of the left brain to a deeper understanding of authentic creativity, thus no space is left for rigid steps to be followed. We specialize in personal and professional leadership working individually with every person. This makes the classes fun and relaxing where one can escape the day-to-day worries and find peace and tranquility. From kiddies programs to understanding of the deeper self through making a to-take-home craft/art work, these programmes are presented every day of the week as well as on Saturday mornings. We love people, so come and experience a “peace” of our (he)arts. Bring your troubles, let us mix them with paint and make good use of it, sending you home with a new outlook on the routine and stress of everyday life.”
