About Melville House
Melville House is the perfect beach house. It's a fully furnished comfortable, family home with direct access to the beach and 180 degree ocean views. There are no houses or development in front of you.
The kitchen and living area open up onto a terrace and uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean, the indigenous forest and the large front garden. You can walk straight from the kitchen and living area down the dune, through the indigenous forest and onto the beach. There is a dining table, recliners and sun loungers waiting to sit, relax, take in the view and soak up the sun on the front terrace.
Self Catering Accommodation
When staying at Melville House, guests have exclusive use of the entire house, front and back garden and entertainment areas.

The en suite has a queen bed and one room has a double bed, while two contain twin beds that can be used as king size or single beds to suit you holiday requirements. There are two bathrooms, one is en suite and there is a separate toilet.

Melville House is serviced daily by our live-in housekeeper. The service includes washing of dishes, cleaning floors and bathrooms, making beds and changing linen once a week. Bath towels are available and are also changed on a weekly basis. Please bring your own beach towels. A separate laundry service is available on request for your personal items, at a minimal additional cost.
We do not live on the property. However, there are two small flats on the property (housing the housekeeper, and private tenants), located at the back of the house. The housekeeper will provide access to the property and answer questions regarding the day to day operations. She is available, at an additional fee, to clean the house daily. The tenants, although friendly, keep to themselves.
