Description

Our beach home offers ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation. The kitchen, dining&living rooms are high volume, open plan & look onto unobstructed mountain&sea views. Concertina doors to deck & braai. Enjoy comfort in en-suite bedrooms(2xking,1xQueen).

Our beach home is in the front line of houses in Elands bay South. From the lounge, deck and upper look out chill-area it has an several unobscured views of the surf break from take off to beach. It looks down on the mouth of the vlei where a large array of magnificent bird life floats, wades, fishes, calls and sings. Through the back gate there is direct access to a path leading to the beach via a few minute walk. The roadside of the house looks out onto the rocky fynbos hill, the peak of which is circled and perched on by a resident Verreaux Eagle pair. Elandsbay is a very peaceful place which somehow induces immediate relaxation. There is a vibration in the area (perhaps due to the interplay of sea and slopes) which truly leaves one feeling moved. This possibly lead to the Khoisan of ancient times choosing a cave which is 20 minutes walk from the house to paint rock paintings of swollen rain animals and hunters while performing their ceremonies.

You will have access to the entire house except the laundry, garage and one of the four bedrooms, which will be locked. We have provided bedding, towels, body and hand wash, toilet paper, cleaning materials and basic herbs and spices. As this is our holiday home which we use regularly, we have locked a food cupboard with our own supplies as well as one of the linen cupboards. Everything else is for your use and enjoyment.

We, Mark and Alexia, live in Cape Town and will not be available in person during your stay but we are contactable on our cell phones, the numbers of which are on the safety card in the entrance hall. We are happy to offer advice telephonically about the activities in the area. Rosetta who cleans the house and holds the keys is available in person as she lives in Elands bay. I will provide her contact numbers via e-mail on booking.

This part of the west coast is magical, untouched and unique.

It offers outdoor activities galore including surfing, kiting, windsurfing, climbing, hiking, paddling, running along the incredibly long stretch of beach, fishing, and diving.
This is also one of the top areas in South Africa for bird watching. Verlorenvlei boasts on of the greatest varieties of bird species in South Africa.
During flower season a short drive offers lovely flower sightings.

There is an iron ore railway line passing Elands bay North and South. This is one of the longest trains in the world. Apparently some of the trains run for more than 3 km! Some days' rail schedules are busier than others. The train does not stop transporting ore on any days in the year. Most tenants find the train charming and interesting but some have found it a disturbance.

You will need a car to get around as there is no reliable public transport in this part of the West Coast. There is parking for two cars behind a manual gate on the property.

There are two small cafes in Elands bay which stock only the most basic products including milk, eggs, bread, cleaning products, potatoes and sometimes other vegetables, apples and sometimes other fruit, frozen meat, snacks and drinks typical of a café. There are two complete liquor stores which only stock a small variety of wines. Permits for collecting mussels and diving crayfish are available at the post office. The hotel has a restaurant and bar and two more restaurants (“Vensterklip” and “Die mossel pot”) are found in the area. Both of the restaurants also have bars and all three have TV viewing facilities for sport events.


Règlement intérieur

We have provided a short list of house rules with the safety card at the entrance of our home.
To highlight:
- Absolutely no smoking anywhere in the house please
- Unfortunately no pets allowed
- Please extinguish all candles before going to sleep
- Please do not try to use the jacuzzi as the heating mechanism is faulty and could burn out.
- Please be aware of security and lock up adequately when going to the beach or leaving the house. (break ins do unfortunately occur but we do not know of any major crimes being a risk)

Had a fantastic long weekend in Elands bay, the house was so perfect for our group. Watching the surf every day, picking the right time to get in for a few waves was amazing. Really good vibes, I'd definitely go back!

I have to say I'm very reluctant to leave this review as I really don't want anyone else to discover this perfect place! The pics on Airbnb do not do it justice at all, and the attention to detail of the interior is exquisite with lovely touches throughout. We loved our stay here, and the afternoons spent on the awesome viewing deck eating crayfish and drinking champagne after an epic surf while watching some great surfing will not be forgotten. So relieved to have finally found the perfect luxurious elands bay surf retreat. Thanks Alexia!
