Property description

The house is situated on the coast of the beautiful Western Cape in the serene seaside village of Wilderness. This fully equipped accommodation is ideal for travelers who wish to experience the Garden Route with 5 star quality. It provides an uniquely African experience in a safe and family friendly environment with uninterrupted sea views.

The property offers 4 bedrooms all with en-suite baths and showers and has large balconies providing panoramic views. Three of the bedrooms have double beds and one bedroom has twin beds. The kitchen is fully furnished with a gas hob, an electric double oven, a microwave, a large fridge/freezer and a breakfast nook. Utilities include a washer, tumble dryer and dishwasher.

The sitting area is air conditioned and has a television, satellite, a DVD player and music system. Sliding doors open onto a wooden deck area and swimming pool facing the beach. The house provides easy access to the beach with a private walkway. (about 200 steps)


Design: Built in an African style with a modern nuance the house radiates harmony with its surroundings. Travertine flooring throughout, marble, colorful drystone walling and thatched roofs with exposed beams create a warm yet rustic feel, while large aluminum windows and sliding doors emphasize the property's openness inviting sunlight into the large room layouts. This African feel is further exclaimed through superb interior decorating and soft furnishings, including paintings and carvings of the big 5. Lighting emphasizing the pine wooden beams and 'kaapse riet' used in making the thatched roof provides a well rounded effect of warmth and class. Rare Wenza wood is used throughout the house and for winter times a log burning stove provides for ultimate comfort and atmosphere.

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 emphasized when it was featured on the South African glamor 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.

Wilderness is renowned as much for its natural beauty, vast stretches of beach, tranquillity and calm seas, as it is for its tradition of hospitality - which began as far back as the late 1800’s, when the first stone farmhouse was converted into a seaside boarding house.

Although the village centre lies just 15km east of George, the area known as Wilderness stretches from the Kaaimans River to the borders of the Goukamma Nature Reserve. It is the only village in the country that can boast its own National Park, for the 2 500 hectare Wilderness National Park lies within its boundaries. With five rivers, five lakes and 19km of beach, this sensitive Eco-system creates a wetland of international importance.

Bird watching is a rare and unique experience, for here is a tapestry of interwoven wetlands, forests, mountains, beaches, open fields and fynbos that provide habitat for nearly 200 species.
