The main coastal highway is out of view and earshot, but is 10 minutes' drive away offering easy access to some of South Africa's top game parks, dive sites, nature reserves, golf courses and other coastal attractions. After booking, please enquire to see more photos, a virtual tour of the apartment and an aerial video of the coast and apartment. Please note that smoking is not allowed indoors.
