Sea view eyrie

We have an amazing view, to three sides the sea and to the last side our home borders a nature reserve. The house is comfortable (we think it is lovely) and easily accommodates 8 people, but just as easily only 2 as the main bedroom is upstairs with the living areas. The other three bedrooms are downstairs. There is a deck going around three sides of the house to catch the sun or the shade at any time of the day. We have all the conveniences you would need including an outside barbecue and an indoor fireplace if it turns chilly. One of our favorite things is to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the truly spectacular sunsets. In season we can see whales and dolphins like to visit.

We are always grateful to be away from the hustle of Knysna in the tourist season as we are high up and the area is quiet with almost no traffic. At night we go to sleep to the sound of breaking waves.

Our proposed car exchange would only be suitable for two people as it will be our utility vehicle.

We can arrange for house cleaning if you wish. This will cost R260 daily, and we find once a week is enough as the house is easy to keep clean.

We would prefer it if you only smoke outside. We even have a wind proof ashtray to catch flying ash!!
