With an open plan living area, a huge balcony area and an adjoining games room, you can enjoy a braai or drinks outside with views of the sea and lagoon. In June to October the patio makes a perfect viewing area for all the dolphins and whales during the whale watching season - especially later on in the day when the whales frequently leap out of the water. The lush tropical garden attracts a large variety of birds for viewing as well as the occasional visit from the monkeys.
All linen is provided but please bring your own beach towels. The house comes with a trusted domestic worker for three days a week, for additional days please arrange with management. The house is secure with an electric gate and two garages as well as Trellidors, a security alarm and outside beams.
The location, a mere 1,5 kilometers from the popular Shelly Centre and 900 meters from St. Mike’s swimming beach, makes it the perfect base from which to explore all the area has to offer.
