5 Bedroom Holiday Villa in Plettenberg Bay.
A private villa situated on the Garden Route near Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. Perched on a cliff in the Robberg Nature Reserve, the 5-bedroom castle overlooks the coastline and sits at the foot of some of South Africa’s most scenic hiking trails. It’s a place where guests can forget about the outside world and get lost amongst the surrounding nature.
BUILT IN A NATURE RESERVE
In the early 1960′s, a wonderfully eccentric stone castle was built on a wild and dramatic sea cliff. The villa was constructed with stones borrowed from the nearby rock face and now rests on one of the most beautiful private properties in South Africa near Robberg in Plettenberg Bay. Its unique architectural design and atmosphere, along with its kilometres of isolated coastline has made this an unforgettable landmark when visiting the Garden Route.
Accessing the coastline below is an adventure in itself, as one will need to travel through an age-old cave. The villa is built above a vast coastal cave, which was inhabited by Stone Age men for millennia. There is a fascinating collection of artifacts from the cave on display in one of the villa’s bedrooms.
A refreshing rock pool lies beyond the cave along the estate’s coastline. Jump and swim in the seawater or scramble over the rocks and simply bathe in the sun as you watch the waves roll in. Our host, William, will also be happy to take you for a walk or take you fishing along the rocks and boulders.
THE HIDDEN BEACH
Below the cliffs and a mere 10 minute walk from the cave lies Vygekraal’s beach; a secluded strip of sand decorated with driftwood and everything else the ocean brings. The beach is often occupied by local baboons, so make sure to book your sandy spot in advance.
The entire villa is available for the exclusive use of a maximum group of ten guests. There are four double suites, which naturally, all come with stunning views. It also has one twin room with a separate guest bathroom. The villa is decorated in a comfortable and creative fashion, with a hint of luxury. Cushions are laid out every day on the palisade cliff top terraces, so you can sunbathe while listening to the waves breaking below.
The Villa has four master bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. All 4 master bedrooms have queen-sized beds with spacious layouts and great views. Rooms have big sliding windows to allow the ocean breeze in. Each bathroom has a bath, toilet, a shower, double vanities and heated bath rails. There are also three outdoor showers: two accessible through the bedrooms and one by the pool. All bathrooms and bedrooms have the finest quality materials, fabrics and cottons to create a luxurious and comfortable experience.
The Villa has one twin room, with two single beds, and a separate bathroom with a toilet and shower. The room faces the ocean, which apart from showcasing a breathtaking view, provides a cool morning sea breeze from the Indian Ocean.
Sitting just above the cliff, the lounge features a 180-degree view of the estate’s coastline and has relaxing couches, a fireplace and an iPod docking station. The TV room boasts a flat screen plasma TV, a DVD player with a collection of movies, satellite television, and a Bose music system with music for every occasion. The villa also has free Wi-Fi Internet access and a full set of board games
A heated swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas are available for lazy days in the sun or a quick refreshing dip after a long hike.
