|Further details outdoors|
Set in a fully enclosed garden, with lovely mountain views. The large palm tree by the pool is the centre focus. The solar-heated pool is a decent size with a length of 9,5 meters with tropical plants around the edge for the ultimate holiday feel.
The garden is well established; with pretty flowers, tropical plants and a generous sized lawn area, complimented with the scent of sea air and lavender bushes.
There is outdoor seating for 6 people with a parasol for welcome shade and also sun loungers for those days when you want to simply relax at the swimming pool.
The dunes of Hout Bay Beach are so close by, that, occasionally, some of the white sand ends up in the garden!
The cottage is North-West facing making it very sunny and light. The Cape Summer wind comes to the rear of the cottage, which means the front is nicely sheltered from this famous South Easter wind, also known as the ‘Cape Doctor’; as it provides for the cleanest air and clear blue skies.
The garden offers various seating options for relaxation;
Benches, hammock, modern style wooden sunloungers with cushions and a parasol, outdoor dining area with weber braai and a pretty, quaint wrought iron patio set for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in French-style.
The pool is heated with imported SOLAR PANELS, increasing the temperature by a few degrees after sunny days. This does not guarantee a warm pool during winter months or cool periods.
We look forward to welcoming you!
