Located in: Betty's Bay
Floating in a 100% indigenous garden, this unique 4 bedroom beach house boasts fabulous sea and mountain views, and has featured in more than 15 magazines, incl. SA House & Leisure and UK Elle Decoration, and SA TV's Top Billing.

It's the perfect spot from which to laze on the white beaches, hike the magnificent Kogelberg biosphere reserve, ride with wild horses, duneboard, surf, whale watch, and explore the Overberg wine estates. It's a special little piece of heaven!

To maximise the magnificent views of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve mountains and the sea, including Jock's Bay beach (a residents' beach so never full), the main living areas in this house are upstairs and open plan, and include an inside living and eating area, and 2 balau silvered wooden decks, each with living and eating areas. Triple sliding doors create a seamless transition between the interior and exterior decks (and a windbreak when required!). The open plan kitchen is fully equipped.

There are 4 bedrooms downstairs (2 with king beds, 2 with 2 single beds each).

There are 3 bathrooms (master is en-suite), and a downstairs outside covered braai/barbeque area (and Weber). The downstairs has balau decking running all the way around it.

There is no lawn, instead there is an established fynbos garden (100% endemic and indigenous species) that comes right up to the decks, in line with the biosphere reserve in which it is situated.

The decor is a combination of modern, new pieces and inherited antiques, as well as unique pieces collected during the course of my travels to more than 70 countries.

The Jock's Bay beaches are a few hundred metres away. You can hear the sea from the house. Main Beach, with its white sand dunes and great surfing/ swimming, is a 20 min walk away or 10 minute drive. The Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, a great point from which to hike into the Kogelberg and/or entertain kids, is 5 minutes walk from the house.

The nearest big supermarket is the Spar in Kleimond (10 minutes drive), and there is also a Woolworths (like Waitrose in the UK) in Gordon's Bay (30 minutes away).

The house is suitable for children, although toddlers would need to be supervised in regard to the sliding doors and stairs (see the house rules section).

I provide guests with a detailed guidebook on the area on confirmation of booking.

There is uncapped 4 Mbps wifi for guests' use. There is no TV.

There is a washing machine, dryer (and washing line) and dishwasher.

Each bed has 2 sets of Egyptian cotton linen, and there are lots of fluffy bath and beach towels, as well as cupboards in all bedrooms.

There are hundreds of books to pore over during your holiday, as well as lots of beach baskets, games, etc.

As I live in Cape Town, I often don't actually meet guests in person, but am in touch by mail, phone or text and on hand 24/7 to answer questions and deal with any unforeseen issues. I have a local network that supports me to make remote management possible.

Central to my team is Nozi, my cleaner, who lives in Kleinmond. Nozi's economic empowerment is a wonderful result of Airbnb, however her mobility is dictated by the local taxi drivers. Hence the lockbox checkin arrangement!

Betty’s Bay lies on the southern Whale Route coast of the Western Cape, about 1.5 hours from central Cape Town, and 30 minutes from Hermanus. Betty’s Bay is a quiet seasonal holiday village, ideally suited to those who prefer outdoor living. Whale watching, walking, hiking, swimming, surfing, cycling & sand boarding are the sort of activities that one can enjoy here. It's Cape beach living at its best!

There are lovely long silver sandy beaches, as well as a selection of small private beaches. Even in the busy season, the beaches are not heavily populated.

Betty’s Bay boasts the attractions of the Stony Point land-based Penguin Colony (the world's largest breeding ground of African penguins), Harold Porter National Botanical Garden & the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve.

At Stony Point, the boardwalk makes penguin viewing a special treat.
The walks, hikes, picnic spots and mountain bike routes in the Harold Porter Gardens and Kogelberg Reserve are spectacular. These wilderness areas form the central core of the Cape Floral Kingdom and are home to a huge range of flora & fauna species. The Palmiet River is also a favourite for swimming or canoeing. Horse riding on Kleinmond beach is highly recommended.

Betty’s Bay is centrally located with Cape Town, Cape Town International Airport, Hermanus & the Cape winelands all around a 60-90 minutes drive away.

The Arabella Golf Course is 15 minutes drive away. Arabella also has a world-class spa for pampering sessions.

Note that Betty's Bay is quiet and peaceful. If you're looking for a town by the sea, then Hermanus is a better fit for you.
