About The Rose and Ale

We are situated in the tranquil seaside suburb of Gonubie. With just a 15 minute drive into East London and a 5 minute walk to our fantastic beach, a perfect spot for both the holiday maker and the business guest.

Our self catering units, each individually furnished, are comfortable and offer all one needs for a relaxing stay. Each is equipped with outdoor entertainment facilities and barbecue, as well as private entrances and secure parking.

Gonubie Sands Apartments are individually decorated, spacious apartments in a complex just 200m from Rose and Ale and just 100m from the sea. They offer enclosed yards or balcony, with no direct access to the pool or playground.

We are also pet friendly with our units offering enclosed gardens to keep your pet safe. Gonubie offers lovely grassed walks along the beachfront to keep your pet exercised.

Family friendly: We have a jungle gym, a slide, two swings, a sandpit, a trampoline, a Wendy house with table and chairs, a play cooking stove, and a swimming pool with a net. There are also toy boxes, DStv children's channel and plastic eatware in the units.
