About Emerald View
Just over a hundred kilometres from Cape Town, lie the emerald waters of the Langebaan lagoon and the West Coast National Park. A stone’s throw away from these warm waters is Emerald View.
Roger and Jennifer Young, who have been living in Langebaan for five years, have recently built their new house, incorporating one floor with four en-suite bathrooms for guests.
The building is situated at the top end of a quiet cul-de-sac, overlooking the Langebaan Lagoon with amazing views. Each room opens on to a deck with a rim flow pool. There is a lift for the physically compromised to gain access to the breakfast room. Undercover parking bays are available for each room. A laundry service is on a request basis.
The four en suite bedrooms all have flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, individual electronic safe, wall heaters, ceiling fan, hypo allergenic pillows, fluffy white towels, a fridge, tea / coffee facilities with West Coast rusks. There is also a library with an interesting collection of books.
These four rooms are:
• No 1 Flamingo - Wheelchair friendly, King or twin beds, extra length
• No 2 Oystercatcher - Queen bed
• No 3 Kingfisher - Queen bed with en-suite TV room
• No 4 Sandpiper - King or twin extra length with en-suite bathroom with slipper bath.
Your hosts are Roger and Jennifer Young. Jennifer has had 15 years experience when she ran her six bedroom B&B in Hout Bay, just outside Cape Town. She enjoys her social bridge and her walks on the beach.
Roger is a retired dentist and a former British and Irish Lions scrum half. He is also a member of the local golf club, playing tennis and bowls. The Langebaan Yacht Club is a two minute walk from Emerald View, where Roger is a member.
