The twin bedroom is opposite the Juliet bedroom across a bridge which spans the open living area below. The two upstairs bathrooms enjoy a wooded view to the Ocean, which sometimes can be heard in the distance at night. Bedroom 4 is on the ground floor, underneath the house.

              Other Amenities

                  • There is a lovely shaded, large decked area, with dining table and chairs for 8, near to the built-in BBQ/chimney. It is serviced by a hatch to the kitchen. The jacuzzi is on a adjoined but lower decked area. The tub sits 6 adults. There are also 4 sun loungers and 4 plastic chairs and a hammock. Should you be at all concerned by security aspects of South Africa, the Garden Route has by far the lowest crime rate in the country and the house is alarmed, top to bottom. There is no land line, but mobile phone reception is excellent. We recommend buying a local phone/ SIM card. There is WiFi with limited download. There is no air conditioning but the main living area in the house is open plan, and cool because of the majestic high ceiling. The property is visited by the birds from the nearby sanctuary, and by buck, tortoises and mongeese. Although we are in 3 acres of woodland, it is wild, uncultivated bush, fynbos, particular to the area. Please contact us about children...moreless

                      Golf: The Garden Route, one of South Africa’s top attractions is a scenic coastal region along its southernmost coast. Renowned for its beaches, indigenous forests, nature reserves, lakes, mountain ranges, adventure opportunities, hiking trails, and world class golfing. It runs from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape all the way to Storms River in the Eastern Cape. Bakatad is situated fairly well right in the middle. This unique stretch of South Africa coastline benefits from a mild climate all year long, making it a golfer's paradise. It enjoys a Mediterranean Maritime climate, with moderately hot summers, and mild to chilly winters. It is one of the richest rainfall areas in South Africa. Most of the rains occurs in the winter months, brought on by the humid sea-winds from the Indian ocean. The Garden Route's temperate weather falls between two climatic regions of summer and winter rainfall so it rains mostly at night which keeps the area perennially green.

                      Fancourt Country Club Estate ,in George, is ranked in the Top 10 of all South Africa's Golf Courses. The Pinnacle Point Golf Course, perched on the cliff tops above Mossel Bay, was selected as one of the World's Top 10 Best New Courses for 2006. But with so many courses, 12 in the immediate area, all within easy driving distance of the house, you are spoiled for choice.
