The Accommodation:

The house consists of four bedrooms. There are two large main double bedrooms. Each has en-suite showers and one has a spa bath. The third bedroom has a double bed plus a single bed, has sliding doors opening to its own private garden area. This room adjoins a long, dormitory style room which has three single beds which have "pull out" beds underneath (ideally suited for children). These rooms share a shower en-suite and large dressing area.

The large, modern kitchen, with separate scullery, is open plan to the spacious lounge and diningroom. Sliding doors and windows open out to a covered outdoor entertainment area - wonderful for outdoor breakfasts, braais/barbecue or simply enjoying the views of the sparkling rock pool and tropical garden. The stream at the far side of the garden is lined with tall indigenous mangrove trees, which provides a private, serene, relaxing ambiance and protection when the beach gets too windy. Although close to the beach, the house offers no sea-views.
