The Western Cape region
To see...: The house is built on a large dune on the beach front of the South Coast and offers panoramic views from every angle. It is fully equipped with decks and balconies to make sightseeing more accessible. Sights include whale watching in winter months, the Outeniqua Mountains, vast Wilderness lakes and the beach front. At night Mosselbay's city lights can be clearly seen. It is not only the sights, but also the smell and sound of the sea which makes the experience all the more special. Wilderness also has extremely clear skies and is accordingly perfect for stargazing.
The villa is also built in the midst of Melkhout trees which is a protected tree species. Emphasis was placed on the preservation of these trees during the erection of the building because it forms the habitat of several bird and mammal species, including the well renowned Knysna Loerie and small 'dyke'.
Wilderness Garden Estate: Positioned in the far corner of 'Whale Close' the house forms part of the much sought after Wilderness Garden Estate. The Estate was built in an aim to provide luxurious housing in a safe environment for overseas as well as South African residents.
Emphasis was placed on leaving the surroundings in a natural state to protect natural vegetation, surrounding dunes and wildlife. Its sought after status was emphasised when it was featured on the South African glamour and entertainment show, Top Billing. Because of the surrounding vegetation and hedges a wholly secluded and safe atmosphere is created.
Safety is always an important question. Wilderness Garden Estate is a privately owned estate with approximately 45 executive homes. The entrance to the estate is gated and manned by 24 hour security personnel. Also, as an additional precaution, the house is alarmed and linked to a security company which monitors the alarm and provide armed response if need be.

Beautiful villa finished to a very high spec. In an excellent location with amazing views & a private walkway to the beach.
The only negative thing was that we were not shown how to work the hot water heater for the upstairs (we did ask but the lady who showed us Into the house was unsure too) & hence could not use the jacuzzi or the upstairs shower. This was only a minor issue as there were 3 other showers to choose from & apart from this everything was perfect.
We loved staying here & wished we had booked a few extra nights. We would highly recommend this villa & would definitely stay here again.

"Truly outstanding property, spectacular location"
The quality of the accomodation is truly outstanding and the attention to detail of the building and the fittings and furnishings is unbelieveable. The house is kitted out as if it is the owner's home, so that you want for nothing to make your stay comfortable. I would single out the bathrooms in particular as being exceptional, especially as there is one in every bedroom which makes a group or family stay so much easier and time-saving.
Meal times around the kitchen table or vast dining table were very memorable and the sheer amount of space in the lounge, together with comfy sofas makes it immediately very relaxing.
