Definite gem of Yzerfontein!! :) lay in bed and welcome the sound of the waves and absolute bliss of the breeze flowing into your room! Woke up feeling refreshed, energised and ready for a new challenge!

Now that is exactly our aim. You need to rest and relax and forget about all the worries of the world! So glad it worked for you. Hope to see you again some time.

Ria and Anita were the perfect hosts, warm and helpful and the breakfasts were fantastic! . We preferred the Africa Room with it own private entrance , patio and braai area. Stunning views of the sea and in the evening you can just sit outside and gaze at the millions of stars above your head enjoying a glass of wine while a steak is sizzling on coals - Heaven on Earth. Thank you from Derick and Hilary

For anybody looking for a place to stay in the Western Cape - Lewens-Essens is the best. The rooms are very comfortable, the food is great, and the hospitality out of this world. The hosts are friendly, helpful, and everything is just awesome. Cannot wait to return.

We recently stayed at Lewen-Essens and were blown away by the fantastic location and beautiful views.
Our hosts, Res and Anita were friendly and made us feel so welcome. It was like home-from-home.
The breakfasts were varied and the rooms were extremely comfortable.

Room Tip: Wonderful views from the guest rooms

Lewens Essence is the perfect get away for Cape Tonians. It is only an hour drive from Cape Town and nestled on the beach front in Yzerfontein. If you are looking for an relaxing atmosphere to rest and breathe fresh sea air, this is the place for you. The owners were super friendly and we felt very at home.

Dear Martin and Henriette

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so happy that you have enjoyed the 2 days with us and that you are fully rested for the rest of January! The year is still far too long for only a 2-day break-away. We also wish you and you establishment a wonderful 2017 and we will pop in when we are in your area.

Yzer regards

Ria & Anita
