99 BeachyHead Drive, Plettenbergbay
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 15
99 Beachy Head Drive - Plettenberg Bay is a beach-house situated on Robberg Beach from which you will be able to enjoy the most amazing and relaxing - and in our view - unequaled - beach holiday. You will be wakened early by the sun's reflection off the sea streaming into your bedroom. At sun-set walk up directly from the beach to the house any enjoy sun-downers in your swim-suit with sand between your toes mesmerized by a breathtaking view of the last streaks of light ebbing away over the bay. On a still evening, the dolphins frequently "play ball" - large schools often providing the evening entertainment, demonstrating their surfing skills in the shore-line. In July - October it is the Southern Right Whales' turn to perform, breaching just beyond the shore-break in their annual courting ritual – making the patio an unbeatable dinner venue.
The master-bedroom, second bedroom patio / deck and open-plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen have uninterrupted views of the Robberg peninsular and the bay. The house was recently re-furbished the beach-house to a modern, high grade spec. Equipment: Bosch.
The two sea-facing bedrooms comprise master-bedroom en suite and the second
children's bedroom with second bathroom. Both sea-facing bedrooms and the spacious lounge, patio have uninterrupted 180 degree views of the bay, framed by the Robberg Peninsular to your left and the Formosa Mountains disappearing into the sea to your right..
Robberg Beach is unique in that it is sheltered by the Robberg peninsular which protects the Plettenberg Bay. Robberg "5" Beach has consistently been awarded the world-renowned "Blue-Flag-Beach" status. Our beach-house is situated between Robberg 5 and Solar Beach - 2 minutes walk along the beach from Robberg 5 Beach.
"Robberg 5 beach located on Beachy Head Drive (south of the Beacon Isle Hotel towards the Robberg Peninsula ) in Plettenberg Bay is a beautiful stretch of beach linking the central Plettenberg Bay beaches with the Robberg Peninsula. Warm, calm waters perfect for swimming, long sandy beaches for perfect walks and the beauty of the area make Robberg a wonderful beach to get away to. Watch dolphins frolicking in the waves as you chill out on the beach. In the winter months, this is an ideal spot to watch the visiting Southern Right whales. Robberg has full-time lifeguards on duty during the season and the recently upgraded facilities include support for the physically disabled. Interpretive signage provides details of the fauna and flora to be found in the area. A visit to Plettenberg Bay would not be complete without time spent relaxing on Robberg 5 beach. Take time to walk along the beach towards the Beacon Isle hotel and enjoy tea and scones on the verandah."
Please note that the two sea-facing front rooms sleep 2 adults (in master-suite) and 3 children (in adjoining bedroom) and are (in our view) 5***** with magnificent views(A-grade rooms). The front rooms are ideally suited for one family should the bathroom layout be an issue. (The front bath-rooms have an inter-leading glass doors to the shower, and should be viewed as one large bathroom with 2 baths , 2 sets of basins and an inter-leading glass shower, should privacy be an issue). The 2 back rooms are a lot more spacious than the front rooms, each have separate shower rooms but have no view, have also recently been re-firbed but to a lower spec than the front areas are considered "B" grade and are ideally suited for a second family, or for children, should front area bathroom layout present an issue. The larger of the two back rooms is a bunk-bed room with 4 double bunk beds (for up to 8 children). The house is not suited for more than 2 families, and 15 people max.
Please note that we can arrange for the house to be fully serviced (please contact owner for details, costing), which includes:
Maid service: every morning (recommended) to make beds, do laundry, tidy house, do dishes, spring clean, tidy rubbish.
Manager service (daily recommended): Deliver Maid to/from 99 Beachyhead do shopping (Woolworths, Spar, Robberg Fisheries, bottle-store), make recommendations for forthcoming meals and plan food purchases + limited cooking (breakfasts, cappuccinos), administer the house, manage the maid, ensure cushions, verandah is properly arranged in the morning, set tables for for meals, fetch, carry, stock the house and ensure that the house runs smoothly - so that you can enjoy your holiday.
Cook: A cook can be arranged, but we prefer to cook our own food. House is very well stocked with Weber gas braai (baraque) + Weber metal plate for fish braai's, latest Siemens appliances, dishwasher, 4 fridges, cappuccino machine. There is (in our view) no better place to host a braai (barabaque) than the verandah if the weather is good.
