In south africa you have everything, what we offer is an extreme getaway from it all, promising awesome relaxing well earned time for yourself and your family.we explore all the senses; sight is in our More magnificent views of the ocean and mountain forests, sound is the forest sounds as well as the sound of the beating waves, we have an amazing bird life with all types right on your doorstep as well as the vervet monkey which you have to watch in case he eats your breakfast off the deck; taste is explored by you in your own kitchen which is stunning and open plan or of course in our famous restaurant which makes fresh seafood and yummy shwarmas with fresh garden herbs to name a few; touch is the feel of your peace inside and the ocean on your skin. The nature reserve is just next door for breathtaking hikes as well as our magnificent boat rides to watch the sardine run in action. (july to september)our town is an eclectic african experience which is uniquely spent exploring the alleyways, with everything to buy from a traditional meal at the supermarket to your fortune told by sangomas! Its all happening here. Less
