About the property

A 4 Bed Luxury Villa With It's Own Private Boardwalk Onto The Beach

Home by the Beach - Perfection – on the very edge of the beach!

The perfect house in the perfect location! This property's elevated position just 5km east of Plettenberg Bay offers uninterrupted sea views and is less than 100m from the Indian Ocean and the pristine beaches of Keurboomstrand where dolphins and whales can be viewed almost every day. Robberg Peninsula and an endless sea-scape dominate the horizon – and at night-time Plett twinkles in the distance.

Cleverly designed to take maximum advantage of its stunning location and year-round sunshine, the house is the last word in elegant simplicity. From the huge frameless fold-back doors and free-flow living/dining areas, to the sparkling swimming pool, this property unquestionably has the ‘wow’ factor.

The open plan ground floor design incorporates a large lounge, kitchen and entrance hallway area with a second TV lounge / snug with separate shower room. There is a double garage off the hallway. The kitchen is served by a separate scullery.

The spacious ground floor living area opens up onto a secluded and private courtyard to the North and a huge deck and swimming pool area on the beach side. The house also has the trademark external lounge area complete with an open, wood burning fireplace – for those intimate group nights enjoying the stars and the crash of waves.

The owners are currently completing a large and impressive sun deck on the roof which will incorporate dining space and a gas braai.

Vacationing in this beach house offers a luxuriously serene environment for those who want to be close to nature while enjoying a very comfortable environment.

And so to bed...

On the first floor there are four beautifully appointed bedrooms. The large master bedroom affords stunning ocean views and features a king size bed, floor-to-ceiling fold-back doors and balcony. There’s a stylish en-suite bathroom with shower, bath and double-sink vanity unit, plus a dressing area with ample wardrobe and storage space.

Two further double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms and shared verandah, also enjoy spectacular sea views. There’s an additional twin bedroom with en-suite shower that looks out north across the indigenous forest. This house also a comfortable 1st floor sun lounge that has frameless fold-back glass doors that offer superb views down and across the expansive beach area.

Climb a few more steps and you’ll reach large sun-deck and entertaining area where you can escape from everything and enjoy views across the whole of Plettenberg Bay. Where better to watch the Dolphins and Whales, enjoy sundowners or just gaze at the African stars at night!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We were all very happy with our stay at Home by the Beach. We have rented many houses in the past but rarely have we stayed in a house where everything worked – the kitchen was well equipped, the design and architecture of the house has been thoroughly thought through in terms of everything that adds value to the experience, from a Weber grill to comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas. I found this house easier to manage than my own house! The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms had everything we needed for us as well as our guests to be able to fully relax.



On top of that, the service Davies provided through Hadley and Jeanne was great, we felt in very safe and reliable hands and the guys were on call whenever we needed them.



Can’t wait to return to this gem of a house!"

An amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly wonderful house. The description by the owner is accurate, and the photos are a fair reflection of what it looks like. The house is not only, beautiful, well designed and with great views, but it is also very well stocked with toiletries, household goods, reading books etc.

There is a vast amount of space, and the top floor deck is now finished and offers excellent all round views inc a tremendous night sky. Whale watching was easy, whether from the roof or even from inside when eating breakfast.

The outdoor room is a wonderful place to sit in the evenings, with a fire, comfy furniture, good lighting, a gentle breeze and the sound of the sea. Getting to the beach is an easy two minute walk on a boardwalk followed by a gentle scramble down a sandbank. The beach is large and practically deserted. Swimming is not recommended.

The rental agents were very responsive and easy to deal with.

All furniture and fittings are of high quality, and there are lots of personal touches all around the house.

I have rented about 20 properties overseas, and this is the best ever - it really does have the "wow" factor. Highly recommended.
