Goblin's Creek, situated in quiet peaceful surroundings, welcomes guests with a sherry on arrival.
As you enter the spacious and very comfortable sitting room, huge overstuffed sofas invitingly beckon you to sit cozily with a good book and liqueur in front of a huge roaring log fire in winter. Or, equally inviting in summertime, light and airy with French doors opening onto the large surrounding verandah and garden.
Goblin's Creek boasts four magnificent bedrooms designed for the romantic at heart. Each bedroom has a huge king size four-poster bed draped with silk mosquito netting and puffy down duvet with white percale covering and of course a log fireplace.
Each bedroom also has its own bathroom with old-fashioned ball and claw bath and lots of candles completes the setting making bedtime and bath time an absolute indulgence.
Open plan to the sitting room and dining area is the large pleasant farm style kitchen for self catering purposes, equipped with all you could need, giving a free flow for easy and relaxed socializing, whether in the kitchen, the sitting room or outdoors.
The smell of home made rusks baking often fills the kitchen inviting guests to brew a cup of delicious filter coffee and dunk a rusk. These are available to guests at all times.
For early risers an ideal place to relax and enjoy that first early morning cuppa is the large verandah running the full frontage of the guesthouse. From here watch the splendid sunrises or on a perfect evening enjoy a sundowner and enjoy the sound of the many different birds as the dusk settles into darkness.
Under a huge old tree in the garden is an ideal shady spot to relax with a nearby unique Koi pond feature. Close by in a lovely sheltered spot is a swimming pool for cooling off on the hot summer days or just lounging around relaxing for some sunbathing.
Take the four minute walk to the nearby beach - stroll the white sands - view the calving whales who come from August to years end and also large schools of dolphins leaping and chasing close by.
A lovely protected cove on the South Western shore of St. Helena Bay - one of the only three natural bays on the mainland coastlines of the world where one can see both sunset and sunrise over the sea.
Well situated for day visits to the West Coast National Park, Cape Columbine Nature Reserve and the quaint fishing village of Paternoster. Or you can join a tour of the internationally renowned palaeontological diggings at the nearby Fossil Park.
A birdwatcher's paradise, with more than 200 species, visit the hides at Rocher Pan, The Berg River Estuary and saltpans of Velddrif, as well as the golf club in Vredenburg.
The free springflower veld displays every year are a Botanists dream as is the nearby Darling and Hopefield flower shows.
