The SpaceThe house boasts a sheltered courtyard as well as two decks, one with braai facilities, which are ideal for dining al fresco. The spacious living room / dining room has a fireplace for winter visitors and the open plan kitchen which is fully equipped and has beautiful ceramics made by the local potter. Tiled floors, a washing machine and a tumble drier help to ensure a laid-back beach holiday. Guest AccessEnjoy a sundowner while watching the sun set and the moon rise … and why not sleep under the stars on the partially enclosed deck in the summertime? Follow your own little footpath to collect mussels off the rocks a stone’s throw from the house, dive for crayfish in the nearby rock pools, or spend the day swimming and surfing at one of the local beaches. Picnic in the botanical gardens and admire the waterfalls, hike in the Koggelberg reserve and swim in the Palmiet River or visit the penguins at Stony Point ... or perhaps all you need is to sit on the deck and watch the waves splashing on the rocks and the whales playing in the bay.

      The SpaceWelcome to one of the most beautiful and tranquil spot on the South African coast, Betty's bay. It is an hour's drive from the airport and an extra 10 minutes if you drive from Cape Town city centre. The R44 is one of the most spectacular coastal roads in the world, in winter it is easy to spot whales playing in the water. Bettysbay is part of the Overberg Biosphere. Because it is such a short distance from the city it is the ideal weekend get away. My house is right on the ocean, you walk from the front door over the lawn to the edge of the water. Many times when the sun start setting we take our chairs down to the water's edge to drink sundowners on the beach. I always go away feeling refreshed and nurtured by the silence. The house feels like an old style farmhouse, simple, warm and full of character. It has 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and a big lounge with dining room and kitchen. I love cooking and the kitchen is therefore well equipped to prepare something really great. The house also has an extensive library, including recipe books to prepare seafood. (there is lots of mussels on the rocks not far from the house) The prices on the website is general prices during the year but during peak season I charge more ie Christmas and Easter. The area is great for walks on the beach or in the mountains, it is also close to the well known penguin colony. There is a walking path in both directions of the house that hugs the sea. Bettysbay is in a Biosphere with lots of indigenous “fynbos”. When you visit there is always something flowering and something to see, especially the birds that persue the flowers. "Wavesbreak" is my beach house and I have therefore endeavoured to make it simple and yet very comfortable. The furniture is super comfortable and excellent to just relax and read. Although the surrounds calls for silence I have a great television but unfortunately no internet connection yet. Guest AccessGuests have the house and facilities all to themselves, I will open up for them and then they are free to enjoy. I am always available on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or mobile if guests have questions or wants suggestions. Interaction with GuestsAlthough I live in Cape Town I am always available to guests if they have questions. In essence guests have complete privacy. Other Things to NoteIt is important to note that guests stay at their own risk, my insurance does not cover personal injury or loss. Although the house does not come standard with cable TV I am more than willing to supply one during longer stays. I remove it during the year for security reasons.

This is the kind of house that could be enjoyed in great comfort by more than one couple.

          The SpaceTo 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 wooden decks, each with living and eating areas. Triple sliding doors create a seamless transition between the interior and exterior decks. The open plan kitchen is fully equipped. There are 3 standalone bedrooms downstairs (2 with double beds, 1 with 2 single beds), as well as a 'kids room' with 2 single beds that doubles as a TV room if the 4th bedroom is not required. There are 3 bathrooms, and a downstairs outside braai area (and Weber). The downstairs section 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. Guest AccessThe Jock's Bay beaches are a few hundred metres away. 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 Woolies 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. I provide guests with a detailed guidebook on the area on confirmation of booking. There is uncapped 4 Mbps wifi for guests' use. Interaction with GuestsAs I live in Cape Town, I often don't actually meet guests in person, unless when I am arranging drop off of the keys, but am in touch by mail, phone or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) 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 partner and 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 so she is not always on hand to meet guests if they arrive after 2.30pm. There is a washing machine, dryer (and discreet washing line) and dishwasher, as well as an old TV (flatscreens encourage petty housebreaking when the house is empty!) and DVD for kids (no DSTV/ cable though - who wants to watch TV in such a lovely environment?). There is uncapped 4 Mbps wifi as well, so visitors can stream TV if required. Each bed has 2 sets of Egyptian cotton linen, and there are lots of fluffy bath and beach towels, as well as built-in cupboards in all bedrooms. There are hundreds of books to pore over during your holiday, as well as lots of beach baskets, games, etc. The NeighborhoodBetty’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, 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 cycle 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 (and spa for the ladies) is 15 minutes drive away. Betty’s Bay, nestled between mountain & ocean, is definitely a worthwhile holiday destination and this self -catering accommodation is the ideal place to stay & get away from it all. Getting AroundOne needs a car to go to the supermarket, but otherwise one can walk to most places nearby along the dirt roads that characterise this secluded part of Betty's Bay. Other Things to NoteThe house has an alarm, which one activates and deactivates with a remote, linked to a private security company. By having the living area upstairs, one can relax about security at night by locking the downstairs sliding doors (the windows in the bedrooms are too small for humans to get through), and keeping the upstairs completely open. The owner has never had anything taken while the house is occupied in over 7 years. Betty's Bay crime is relatively low, and limited generally to theft of flatscreen TVs when owners are not there (hence I don't have a flatscreen TV in the house!). ______ Keywords: boutique accommodation capetown, exclusive accommodation capetown, bettys bay, bettysbay accommodation, bettys bay exclusive accommodation, coastal accommodation cape, cape coast boutique accommodation

            The SpaceSituated at the water's edge, on the rocks overlooking the sea, against the magnificent backdrop of the Fynbos-clad Kogelberg Mountains, it's easy to see why we named our beautiful holiday retreat Natanya - Hebrew for "God's Gift". All rooms in the house have spectacular sea and/or mountain views - allowing for whale-watching at close quarters, not to mention the thrill of watching plumes of spray erupting before your eyes as thundering waves break on the rocks in front of the house when the seas are high. Natanya's heart is undoubtedly its open plan lounge-dining-kitchen area, with seamless flow on the mountain side through double French doors out to the enclosed garden courtyard, with table and umbrella for sheltered al fresco dining, built-in barbecue and tinkling water feature. On the other side of the open plan space, concertina sliding glass doors open onto a generous sea-facing deck featuring a rustic 12-seater dining table for those lazy lunches which merge into sundowners which become star-spangled, balmy, candle-lit dinners... Our modern, fully-equipped kitchen features a large central island with prep bowl, large gas hob and stove, an additional thermo-fan electric oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and large fridge-freezer. There is also a separate, spacious utility room adjoining the kitchen with double kitchen sink, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The house also features a dedicated, comfortable TV room with mini library, extra-long built-in couch, wood-burning fireplace, satelite TV, plus DVD and CD player. Natanya sleeps 10 people. Downstairs are 2 double bedrooms en-suite: the spacious sea-facing master bedroom, featuring a built-in king sized bed, private balcony, open-plan bathroom with jacuzzi bath, and shower (both with full sea views), and separate toilet. The mountain-facing bedroom offers a king sized bed (or two 3/4 beds) with spacious en-suite bathroom and private outdoor hot water shower. This room leads out through double French doors onto a private courtyard. Upstairs is a third double bedroom with open plan bathroom en-suite (bath and shower), and separate toilet. Double French doors open onto a generous private deck with breathtaking mountain and sea views to either side. Two smaller bedrooms upstairs, each with two 3/4 beds, complete the sleeping quarters. A guest loo downstairs serves these two rooms. A large, lawned garden overlooking the sea offers ample space for ball games; there is also a sandpit for little ones to enjoy. And, finally, direct access a short amble over the rocks directly from the house leads to "'the Gully'' - a deep tidal rock pool offering our guests the chance to cool off with an exhilarating swim! Interaction with GuestsWhenever possible (which is usually, but not always, the case, as your host lives an hour's drive away from Natanya), guests are welcomed upon arrival and given a brief tour of the house. Your host is also always available telephonicaly to field queries and/or offer recommendations. Other Things to NoteNatanya is serviced by a cleaner twice a week. Bath towels and 100% cotton bed linen, pillows and duvets (with extra blankets in case needed) are all provided. The house is protected by a security alarm system with linked armed response. There is ample parking on the premises. Cell phone reception enables our guests to stay in touch. As Betty's Bay borders the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, baboons (and other wild animals) are present in the area. "Baboon savvy" practices are explained to our guests upon arrival.

                    The SpaceThe apartment consists of a large bedroom (with original 1930's heirloom furniture which belonged to our parents), living room, galley kitchen (with all the necessary equipment), has a spacious bathroom and an open veranda with a view to the sea. Ideal for a couple or a young family of 3. There is Premium cable TV for those who need their daily fix! The apartment is comfortable, homely and airy. It opens onto a large veranda where you can sunbathe, eat outdoors, make a barbeque in the Weber or just laze around and recline in total privacy. Guest AccessYou will be able to drive right up to the entrance where your car will be secure. You can walk to the beach, botanical gardens, local cafe, restaurants, fast food shops, (fish & chips, pizzeria, home cooked meals) pottery factory, mountain contour paths and lake from the apartment.

We respect your space and allow your freedom of movement. We know the area very well and can provide maps, advice and hints about activities upon request. We have a file which is available in the apartment containing information about our immediate area and interesting activities nearby. The NeighborhoodSeaside and mountain rural area with lovely walks, beaches, lakes and mountain walks. You will be in the heart of nature! Getting AroundYou can walk to most amenities, however, there is limited public transport so a car will probably be essential for further exploration of the area. Other Things to NoteBetty's Bay is a very rural, beach-side area of the Western Cape. Our house (and your apartment!) is within walking distance (80 metres) from the sea. There are lovely rock pools, white sandy beaches, three fresh water lakes and sand dunes for sand-boarding. The Palmiet river (safe for swimming) is about 6kms to the East along the Main road (R44). Kleinmond, the nearest town, where one can do all necessary shopping for groceries, chemist supplies etc., is just 9km away along the R44. A bit further along, about 20km from our home, is Hermanus, a vibrant and expanding seaside city. There are numerous restaurants, museums and places of interest to be explored. The nightlife in Hermanus makes up for the lack of this in Betty's Bay!
