Conveniently located close to the N2 at the start of the Garden Route and Addo Elephant Park and close to some of the large shopping centres and hospitals in Port Elizabeth. Mongoose Manor is the original homestead of Swanston Farm that borders the Baakens River, and is thought to have been constructed in 1918.
The extensive use of rare Yellow Wood in the construction of the home makes it unique in Port Elizabeth and lends a certain grace and character to the homestead. Accommodation is upmarket in modern self-contained rooms, all with private entrances and off-street parking. Full breakfast is served or self-catering.
Mongoose Manor is named after a family of mongooses that live on the property and are frequently seen in the garden, as is a large variety of birds, for example Spotted Eagle Owls, Guinea fowl, Knysna Loeries and Sunbirds.
