Sunshine, golf, wine & whales
Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Nestled in the Helderberg basin - and within walking distance to three world renowned wines estates and a world class golf course - and a 10 minute drive to spectacular beaches, a 20 minute drive to Stellenbosch and
40minutes drive to Cape Town's V&A Waterfont, you find this little home offers much more than you'll have expected. In a secure estate and north facing it offers privacy, natural light and sunshine. It's a perfect retreat for the discerning executive couple wanting a longer term stay in a tastefully appointed home rather than holiday-let.
Note: June to November is the whale season in False Bay, and Hermanus - the premium whale watching destination only an hour's drive along the spectacular Clarence Drive in the Kogelberg Nature Conservancy.
