About Lake Pleasant Villas
Lake Pleasant Villas offers owner-direct discounts on two of the superior, luxurious units situated at the exclusive five-star Lake Pleasant Living Resort, which includes what was once a very well known hotel of historical interest. The secure grounds now form a unique holiday / lifestyle destination providing an amazing retreat amongst pristine and serene, landscaped gardens.
Suite 16, an extremely well-appointed Garden Suite, and Villa 5, an exceptional, freestanding duplex, are located within the Goukamma Nature Reserve, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Nestling on the banks of a unique, freshwater lake, “Groenvlei” is one of just a few freshwater lakes in the southern hemisphere. The unique “Green (Groen) Lake” has no in-flowing river and no outlet to the Indian Ocean, which is situated to the South behind the sand dunes of coastal fynbos and forest vegetation.
With their direct access to and views of this stunning and unique lake, the units are surrounded by matchless, protected beauty and just a short distance to one of Sedgefield’s “best kept secret” beaches, where observations of frolicking bottlenose and common dolphins within the marine protected areas of the ocean are commonplace. Goukamma Nature Reserve boasts 14km of coastline to nearby Buffels Bay, and covers some 2500 hectares of diverse habitat supporting many animal species, including more than 220 recorded species of birds, together with other unique and shy animals which are commonplace only to the prestige of such protected, natural areas of the Cape.
