Our house is newly built and brand new. Close to Cape Town, the airport, art and culture, great views - Hermanus village, best Whale watching in S Hemisphere (30km) - SA's best Wine farms - Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Paarl wine routes (starting 15km).
Host guests in my vehicle to wine estates, golf courses; to Cape Town city; or any touring in the magnificent Southern Cape Peninsula. Gourmet dinners prepared on request;supply the best wines in South Africa. 10 nights minimum over Xmas and NY.
Our house is newly built. Complete landscaping and pool area completed by October 30th. We employed a minimalist, simplistic and modern design with white washed hard clay brick walls all covered in my own original art. (I am a commercial artist).
The kitchen and living area is a huge open plan space encouraging free-flowing comfort, with large French doors - centred by a 1.4 metre fireplace - and accessing the house's 50 m2 pool and garden area emphasizing incredible views from anywhere in the house. The house overlooks a rocky cove and private beach tickled by the southern Indian Ocean. The huge entertainment area is grassed and hosts a large 12m2 wading pool - with a seated cocktail platform -is situated at the edge of our wild fynbos garden overlooking the rocky cove and Southern Indian Ocean. 10 minimum nights over Xmas and / or New Year period.
If one takes the large en-suite double (URL HIDDEN) is able to use all the house and amenities....including pool area with garden and hammocks to laze the day away, and my small family and I will share the house with guests. If one takes the entire house we shall not be sharing but leave the house entirely to our guests. Bedroom 3 lists 2 single beds, but can be joined with a professional joiner to make a normal comfortable double bed.
Interaction with guests
I am available for any assistance during my guests stay especially when guests take the main suite. When they take the house I am not in Betty's Bay but I am still available to all guests to hosting them in my vehicle for touring wine farms, golf courses or touring Cape Town city and surrounds. (Please investigate things to do or see in this area of the world. There are too many to mention here, from nature, to culture, to wine to golf and other sports. I am happy to guide guests unfamiliar to the Cape to make their stay more exciting by showing them only the best experiences as opposed to just commercial experiences often times not the best way to spend pone's time here. "Locals know best" and visitors should use this local knowledge to improve their holidays. I encourage guests never to book their complete holidays with expensive touring options before they speak to people that know the Cape well as I do.)
Other things to note
Our house celebrates the wild vegetation of the southern cape. There are no immediate neighbours (closest neighbour is 65metres away) inviting privacy. The pool is set in a wide open space surrounded by wild bush.
There is a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and vacuum cleaner...all easy to operate..guests are requested to use them freely or as required.
When I say no parties we disallow guests to invite the public to party. But guests that take the entire house may indeed, within reason, entertain themselves and privately invited friends with music and dancing as they wish. Please respect the neighbourhood.
I'm abstract artist and ex investment banker that enjoys the finest things in life. This house reflects our character and is in one of the best beach resorts in the world. We live close to pristine beaches, wine estates, golf courses and the beautiful city of Cape Town.
