Bathed in light and with the soft murmur of the waves this sublimely pretty, colonial style house is the perfect blend of comfort and casual chic. Nestled mid beach on the lovely Robberg Peninsula with Robberg 5 Beach, only 3 and half minutes walk.

Completely private and cosseted from the coastal winds… guinea fowl scurry about outside and the pool deck has inviting seating for sun bathing or stargazing.

An original Cap Dutch farmhouse style building, it has been lovingly restored by its international designer owner. Reed clad ceilings, slow whirling fans, Louis Vuitton travel chests and stoves give it a distinctly ‘Out of Africa’ atmosphere. It is both cosy and grand (easily seating 16 for supper at two intimate tables) there are deep sofas and wonderful outside/indoor living areas providing plenty of cosy corners for relaxing and chatting.

Built on two levels the house has a stylish sense of space with a library and TV room upstairs and five pretty bedrooms (giving different sleeping options for 8 guests) decorated in soft shades of blue and white. There are lovely bathrooms, all with separate loos and double basins, two have outdoor baths.

The house comes with two wonderful staff who drive and shop, cook and garden and importantly it also has it’s own water and power supply.
