About Dune Ridge Country House

Nestled between thick coastal fynbos on the outskirsts of St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis, Dune Ridge is an award winning Country House which recaptures the mystique of an authentic African farm.


With six double rooms and a family cottage Dune Ridge Country House welcomes children of all ages; the needs of children and families are well catered for. The old homestead reminiscent takes one back to a bygone era - experience the breathtaking natural world of Africa merged with modern sophistication. We aim to deliver an unforgettably unique coastal and bush getaway.

The house was built in early 2000 using local and recycled materials. It boasts reed patio ceilings, stone fireplace and walls, beautiful Oregan pine flooring and fixtures that still bear the mark of well worn floors from an old school. The guesthouse boasts a tranquil environment that surpasses any other in the area, with large secure gardens, a beautiful and private swimming pool area for those lazy summer days.


Dune Ridge offers various beautiful seating areas around the country house to enjoy the delicious country cuisine on offer. Breakfasts are served either in the large sunny breakfast room or out on the front patio overlooking the gardens, offering a selection of homemade treats to start your day.

Light lunches are served on request at the swimming pool or on the front lawn and dinners are served in the dining room or out on the patio, surrounded by lanterns in the summer months. The menu is created utilizing ingredients from the vegetable garden or sourced locally to produce the finest in quality.


We offer both dune and coastal forest walks as well as evening frog safaris, an in-house treatment facility and a Bush Spa. There really is no shortage of things to do and see whilst staying with us!

We had an amazing stay at the country house as part of our honeymoon. The hotel is very nicely decorated, with beautiful gardens and surroundings. The staff at Dune Ridge has also been really welcoming throughout our stay, and the food was delicious. I would 100% recommend this place.

Verified reviewexcellent

Well Dune Ridge was exactly what we were looking for and it is not often these days that your expectations are exceeded on arrival. Your willigness to ensure every request that we had from a Weber Braai, to a bigger fridge in the room to friends of ours speding a wonderful evening at the pool boma was never an issue - phenominal. The family unit itself was very spacious and extremely comfortable and the location was just perfect for my wife and I to get away from the busy beach and bay. The kids did squeal a bit about not being in the "action" enough - they will get over it. The staff were fantastic, always willing to help and most certainly preparing awesome breakfasts and a proper birthday cake for our dauughters 13th birthday. Thank you for being so compromising and uncomplicated and allowing us to have a superb break. Pity it went so fast. Going to miss having Jake jump through our bedroom window in the morning just to come and say a quick Eastern Cape - good morning!!!
