“Fantastic location on the Ocean”

We stayed here with two couples for 4 nights. The house is located in a nature park on top of the cliffs with magnificent views of the ocean and ever green fynbos. It has a well equipped kitchen and terraces at both sides of the house. There is a small pool, not really suited for swimming but OK to cool down on hot days (which was not the case dring our visit). The two bedrooms on the ground floor have an ensuite bathroom with shower with ocean view and a separate toilet. The third bedroom upstairs has a separate bathroom with bath. The living room is nicely decorated and has some interesting books. There is no WiFi and telephone reception is not ideal. If you want to watch TV you have to bring your own decoder but this is not a place you come to to watch TV... Upon first arrival the owner has to meet you at the entrance of the park to show the way to the house and open the gate to the private section of the park. The road itself is somewhat challenging the first time you take it. There is a large shopping mall at about 15' drive from the house and plenty of restaurants in George or Wilderness (with the beautiful beach). Hiking in the park is somewhat limited, the descent to the ocean is rather steep but there's plenty of hiking possibilities in the larger area which requires using your car to get to the starting point. Unfortunately we didn't spot any whales...

The location of the home must surely rate as one of the best in the world! Every window offers breath-taking views of the beautiful coastline and sitting on the deck, while enjoying the scenery must rate of one of life's privileges.
The owner is extremely helpful and our booking happened without fuss but with efficiency.
We left Spirit of the Ocean after a relaxing 8 day stay with heavy hearts - wanting to stay on for longer.
A truly memorable e pertinence and great value for money.

“Stunning location”

We stayed here for 4 nights with our family and it was amazing. The view, the house, the location, the reserve. I love the sea and I could not have wished for a better place. In the morning we opened up our folding doors of the room and enjoyed the cool breeze. We saw dolphins on several occasions, watched the birds, the sunrise and the sunset.

The house is well equipped and the owners very friendly. We visited Oudshoorn, the beach, did the King fisher trail and relaxed at the little splash pool. I definitely want to come back!!!

The road towards the house is an adventure, steep and sharp corners, but once you know the road it is not difficult. We drove to small Chevrolets sparks and managed.

“Breathtaking views amongst idyllic natural coastline”

We spent, sadly, only a few days at this very spectacular place. It was the perfect place to unwind with the most amazing views over the sea where we were able to watch the whales leaping out of the water, and the cormorants nesting in the cliffs. It was clean and well equipped, and the private swimming pool was an added bonus where we sat watching the birds and butterflies amongst the vegetation... It was incredible waking up to the spectacular sunrises, with the vast expanse of sea and sky next to us. A great place to chill out!
