Accommodation review for Pine Lodge Holiday Resort in Summerstrand
While my husband was doing business in the Port Elizabeth CBD, the kids and I stayed at the Pine Lodge Holiday Resort in Summerstrand, Eastern Cape.
Although there's a wide variety of Port Elizabeth self catering accommodation around, we chose well with the Summerstrand Pine Lodge Resort
