About Strandfontein on the Rocks


Let the Atlantic Ocean sing you a lullaby, right under your window. And wake up with the powerful sound of the tide.

Start of a new day. For a long walk along the beach, for fishing, for swimming, for writing poems in the sand, only to be read by the Ocean. Or do you prefer day dreaming on your stoep, just moving forward sundowner time? Fine, as long as you don't get too lazy to pick your mussels from the rocks below your beach house at low-tide.

Paradise? Yes! A dream? Yes-no! A dream you can realise for an unique seaside holiday.

Strandfontein is a small West Coast beach resort, not for the big tourism but for the people of Vredendal and Vanrhynsdorp, who own houses here to escape the summer heat. From a burning 36° in Vredendal to a nice 24° in Strandfontein. Every few km's one degree down. And in this paradisical Strandfontein you can rent the most western beach house. Five metres above high-tide, ten metres from the Ocean. The utmost West Coast, and all yours, for the time being.

Strandfontein lies west from the N7, exit Vanrhynsdorp, 75 km's good tar road to the Coast. Strandfontein has a small supermarket, but take special things from the Vredendal shops and have your tank filled.

To find your beach house is easy. The house with the bright blue roof that is nearest to the Ocean. It has an open plan dining room / lounge, four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a stoep, a carport and braai facilities. In the house you'll find everything you need.

Things to do except enjoying the beach and the Ocean? No problem. Go to Lambertsbaai to visit the famous Bird Isle and to eat fish. Go to Doringbaai to buy crab from the fishery, for a glorious meal at home. Go to Vredendal to taste and buy wine. Go to Vanrhynsdorp to admire the hundreds of cacti of the Cactus Nursery. But why don't you stay at home, on your stoep, listening to the Ocean and to the seagulls, having a drink, reading something not tiring, vaguely thinking about the heavy braai-job that waits, having one more drink, listening again to the Ocean and the seagulls ...

Hierdie was ons derde besoek en ek het dadelik weer geboek. DIE BESTE plek ooit, ek is immers hier gebore en het my matriek hier geskryf. Baie dankie Lida...
