Vensterklip is a property for self catering in Elands Bay for tourists visiting the Cape West Coast region.

About Vensterklip

On the wild West Coast, just 200kms north of Cape Town, close to the ocean and the renowned surf spot, Elands Bay, lies an extraordinarily beautiful stretch of wilderness.

Accommodation

Vensterklip offers a choice of accommodation ranging from beautifully restored historic cottages, dating from the early 1800’s, to luxury campsites with en-suite bathrooms and braai areas, all overlooking the Vlei.

The charming historic accommodation includes The Scott House (sleeps six, two bathrooms, wonderful large stoep with vlei views). The Pump Station is an ideal romantic hideaway which sleeps two (but can also accommodate children) is set apart from the rest of the property and commands breathtaking views over Verlorenvlei. Fish Eagle and Pelican are two adjoining historic studios each sleeping two people.

Restaurant / Dining

The Tin Kitchen country restaurant serves delicious local organic meat and fish dishes in and around a 300 year old barn. Shaded seating areas and beautifully tended lawns add to the relaxed, rustic atmosphere.

Vensterklip is an ideal spot for bird watching, kayaking, horse riding, fishing, walking, surfing, rock art, wild flowers - or just enjoying a perfect piece of wilderness.

Attractions & Experiences

Vensterklip is situated on a stretch of water known as Verlorenvlei, which is one of the largest natural wetlands along the West Coast of South Africa and the only coastal fresh water lake in the country. It is a designated Ramsar site of National Importance and provides a varied natural habitat for over 240 bird species.

Nearby Elands Bay is a cult surf spot famed for its six star left breaking wave. Despite the ice cold waters, surfers from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this savagely beautiful place. With heartbreakingly beautiful sunsets and magnificent crayfish, this is one of the key places on the wild Cape West Coast.

Verified reviewvery good

We camped in one of the overland camp-sites. The staff and personnel were very friendly and helpful. The ablution block was clean and had more than enough hot water in the showers. The camp site was also recently renovated and in good condition.
