Ironman Accommodation at Hobie Beach, Port Elizabeth, South Africa — Ironman Africa, Ironman World championship 2018 & Hikers

August 22, 2019

Hobie Beach, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Host to Ironman Africa on April 15, 2018...

...and to the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on September 1 and 2, 2018!

My home in Summerstrand is a quick 10-minute walk away from the Ironman start and finish line at Hobie Beach.

You get a private flat/apartment with your own entrance, two bedrooms, a shower-toilet, and private kitchen. Your front door leads into downstairs bedroom.

Kitchen and shower-toilet are both upstairs. The kitchen leads off the upstairs bedroom.

Sleeps up to five people. Beds include one double, one single, and one king-size which we can separate into two single beds.

For clothes, there's a built-in cupboard downstairs, and upstairs you have 2 sets of open shelves with hanging rod between.

Free wifi throughout.

Secure parking on property, protected by high security fence.

From your flat at 20 Kuruman, walk across the University & down 2nd Ave. IronMan start/finish line is at "The Beach"


Cost for Ironman is $20 per person per day (approx. R230 ZAR) — or minimum of $85 per day for flat (approx. R1,000 ZAR) whichever is greater. So if you're one person, it's $85. If you're five people, it's $20 each.

For hikers NOT during Ironman weekends, cost is $20 per person per day — and no minimum for flat. So it's $20/day each whether you're one person or five :)

Check exchange rate of South Africa Rand (ZAR) with your country's currency here.
