Guest review from: Family Davis.

Good day Kathy and Jack
It was such a pleasure meeting you and staying (although only for one night) at DEMPSEY’S GUEST HOUSE. We felt so welcome, comfortable and the children just adored everything.
A big thank you, and we will definitely stay longer next time.
Warm Regards
Claire and Peter Davis

Firefly the Travel Guy featured in Getaway magazine.

Firefly the Travel Guy featured in Getaway magazine.

It was great to see that our local tourism guru, Jonker Fourie, features as a contributor in the March issue of Getaway Magazine.

The article is : ” 3 SA train trips you’ll love”. The first and second train trips are written by Teagan Cunniffe and Caroline Webb respectively. Jonker’s contribution is on the third train trip: The Apple Express, Port Elizabeth – a beloved old train back on its tracks after gathering dust since 2010. For now the Apple takes us on a very short journey, longer journeys are being planned, we all look forward to it.

Jonker is passionate about and fully ‘plugged into’ all things tourism, local and national; he is often called “Firefly the Travel Guy” after his blog with the same name. The Firefly Photo Files have become his photographic guide to the beautiful country in which we live. He manages to publish a daily photograph from his Port Elizabeth Daily Photo Blog

Guest review from: Hilary Glisson.

Thank you for the friendly welcome Kathy.
My room was spotless.
You also provided boiling water for early morning coffee, before I asked, when the electricity was off due to the storm. A pleasant stay. Thank you again!

Guest review from: Angie and Rob Fromburg.

We arrived without warning and asked Kathy if she could help us out with toiletries as we had to stay over, unexpectedly due to a Doctor’s appointment! Kathy then produced a tray of all sorts of ‘goodies’ to see us through! Very helpful and most friendly. The room was perfect and there was everything available. Will definitely stay there again!

Welcome colour added to Walmer Boulevard.

Welcome colour added to Walmer Boulevard.

A dreary old municipal building on Walmer Boulevard was recently given new life. A fresh coat of paint and some creative input draws attention to a somewhat interestingly-shaped building…penguin included! It’s a pity we can’t provide a ‘before’ photograph which would demonstrate the transformation.

(Search on Google maps for a ‘before’ photo:  Shell-Traingle Service Station, 177 Walmer Blvd, South End. Building is just to the right of service station )

We love colour!

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.
