Property description

The Garden Route is a piece of paradise running parallel to the Indian ocean coastline. This magnificent route features lakes, mountains, tall indigenous forests, amber-coloured rivers and unspoilt golden beaches. The richly forested areas offer leafy meandering trails celebrated by hikers and walkers, whilst quaint grassy lanes invite long, leisurely drives, and the lakes and rivers lend themselves to swimming boating and fishing.

Situated on the picturesque Garden Route in South Africa, this Italian villa style guesthouse perches on the banks of Sedgefield’s tranquil lagoon and is positioned 7 minutes walk from the sea. It is ideally located in the heart of the garden route, almost midway between George and Knysna. The George airport accesses the area, and is roughly 40 minutes by car to the guesthouse. On the Blue boasts magnificent uninterrupted 180 degree views over the Sedgefield lagoon, lovely sea views, and breathtaking views towards the spectacular Outeniqua mountains. The guest house sleeps 8 - 11 adults.

Sedgefield is Africa’s first Slowtown and is idyllic if you simply wish to relax, unwind and embrace the natural beauty of this magnificent coastline. There are four pristine beaches to choose from each with its unique atmosphere and beauty. Take a long leisurely walk along the unspoilt cola beach and encounter only seagulls and nesting oystercatchers. The area offers ample opportunity for all sorts of watersports, hiking, fishing, as well as extreme sports such as paragliding and mountain biking.
Sedgefield village offers a number of restaurants, shops and amenities and is under 5 minutes drive from the guesthouse. The famous organic Wild Oats market runs every saturday morning on the outskirts of Sedgefield. This organic internationally known farmers market continues to draw proud locals and discerning visitors every saturday throughout the year. The beautiful Tsitsikama forest is less than an hour away and offers all sorts of activities, such as bungee jumping, rafting and hiking, whilst the Knysna golf course is 25 minutes away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I bought this wonderful house in 2010 whilst we were living as expats in Moscow, and run it as a guesthouse which we are very proud of! It is a lovely peaceful yet grand and awe-inspiring place. We love sitting on the wide veranda taking in the open spaces, lagoon, sea and mountain views. Or leisurely watching the interesting birdlife and boating activities on the lagoon whilst sipping on a cocktail at sunset.
