About The Little Sanctuary

The Little Sanctuary overlooks the beautiful Lookout beach and is blessed with panoramic views of the sea, lagoons, and Tsitsikamma Mountains.

The Little Sanctuary has recently undergone an extensive modernization, makeover and upgrade - the results are stunning. The house now features an extra floor to make the most of the views, five double bedrooms, modern kitchen, swimming pool, large garden, built in BBQ, several entertainment areas, with cleaning service included.

This delightful luxury seaside property provides you and your guests with the perfect self catering holiday, located within very short walking distance of the sea, beaches, restaurants and Plettenberg Bay's High Street. The closest restaurant is only a two minute stroll away just meters from the sea.

Ground Floor Bedrooms:

Keurbooms Bedroom:
A lovely room overlooking the sea, lagoon and distant mountains. Large en-suite double room with walk-in shower and French doors opening onto the veranda and swimming pool.

A delightful double room with doors leading to veranda. Spectacular views overlooking the sea, lagoon and distant mountains.

Garden Bedroom:
Comfortably furnished room with twin beds overlooking a quiet courtyard garden.

Top Floor Bedrooms:

In 2014 we added an upstairs floor to the main house comprising two en-suite bedrooms.

The Tsitsikamma Honeymoon Suite:
This spacious new top floor bedroom with en-suite (bath, toilet and shower), provides spectacular panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, Lookout Beach, Keurbooms Lagoon and Tsitsikamma mountains.

The Lookout Bedroom:
Located on the same floor as the Tsitsikamma room, this smaller but delightful room with en-suite toilet and shower offers great views of the bay, Robberg and the Lookout Rocks.

Ground Floor:

Large open area living and entertainment area, with the kitchen leading to the dining area through to the TV and lounge area which opens onto a patio overlooking the sea, lookout beach, Keurbooms lagoon and Tsitsikamma mountains.

A large fully equipped and newly installed modern kitchen with granite worktop and island. Fully equipped with large double electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher etc.

Dining Area:
Furnished with Yellow and Blackwood dining furniture.

Sitting Room and TV Area:
Large sitting room overlooking the sea, beaches, lagoon and mountains. Wood oven for those occasional cool winter evenings. Satellite TV & Wi-Fi provided.

Entrance Hall and Guest Toilet:
As you enter the front door you will be blown away by the magnificent sea view.

Large covered veranda overlooking the ocean, lagoon, beach and mountains. The veranda features a top of the range, built-in stainless steel braai (BBQ). With the stunning views and mild climate the veranda generally replaces the sitting room and lounge for both meal times and relaxation. Outdoor tables can be arranged to seat 12 for a meal.

Pool (safety net provided):
The pool overlooks the sea and is surrounded by a lovely sun deck. If you are lucky enough you could spot whales from your sun lounger.

The property has been modernized with security in mind, with new indoor and outdoor systems. We have also installed a discreet electric fence around the property. A new alarm system monitored by ADT (24-hour rapid response security), has been installed.

Secure parking for two cars within the property behind a high remotely operated entrance gate. Parking for additional cars on our paved area outside the gate.

Lower Ground Floor:

Laundry and domestic toilet.


Located at the end of the sought-after Formosa Street, the property is adjacent to the "Lookout Nature Reserve" providing direct access and uninterrupted access and views to the sea.
