“Breathtaking views amongst idyllic natural coastline”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

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!

“A place taking the mind on a wander and unwinding the body.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Upon arrival we were met with the most breath-taking and encompassing ocean view, which is in one word, commanding! This view continued to change throughout our stay, captivating us every moment.
In such a paradise, surrounded by the blue ocean, birds and plants, our minds' only option was to wander into dreams and contemplation. What relaxation!
The house itself is a comfortable, natural-looking house with warm wood elements and a wonderful flow of space inside and out with beautiful full glass windows and a lovely opening out from the kitchen.
It was a space in which we could comfortably relax and make our own.
Definitely worth a second stay when we feel the need to unwind again.

“Stunning views, peaceful, beautiful place and location”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Swimming pool, comfy beds and couches, good kitchen and laundry facilities. Perfect for a getaway from the rush of city life. Absolutely breath taking views where you can watch both the sunrise and sunset. Perched right on the hilltop overlooking a wide expanse of sea and coastline. Really felt rested after this holiday - so quiet. Some great walks in the natural fynbos and a close drive to Victoria Bay.
Important note: should do shopping for food/groceries before hand because there are no shops in walking distance (about a 10 minute drive)

Date of stay: January 2014

Thanks for your review. It was lovely to have you stay. Thanks for looking after Spirit of The Ocean so well. As mentioned in the information on the house, combi vans or trailers don't do so well on the road. An ordinary car manages happily and four wheel drive is not necessary.
