“The Perfect South African Retreat”

Located in the heart of the Garden Route I rented this apartment for a month and it was not nearly long enough to enjoy all that the Wilderness area has to offer. The apartment was lovely, the owner was extremely accommodating, the security of the residence and safety of walking at night was the best I have seen after exploring several countries in southern Africa by motorcycle. I chose to spend time in Wilderness after passing through on a motorcycle trip a few years prior and was not disappointed by my decision to spend so much time in one area on my return trip. Whale watching could be done from the patio, elephant parks were a short drive away, hiking trails were out the front door and the walk to the beach was just a few minutes.

With the convenience of nearby George and Knysna this small beach community has everything needed from a big city in just a short drive but a world away from the nonsense. The grocery store, several quality restaurants, video store (yes, they still have them), open air markets, and live music nightlife were just a few blocks and I found it quite safe to walk back even late at night. This nook in South Africa is by far my favorite and having a fully equipped condo was great to come back to after a day of exploring.

There are two farmers markets within ten minutes each direction on Saturdays that shouldn't be missed. Within an hours drive you have the deserts of the little Karoo, several scenic mountain passes, temperate forests, and many coastal communities. There is surfing in Victoria Bay which can be walked to along the old rail road tracks as well as many lookout points for whales and dolphins which were everywhere while I visited.

While the title says two bedroom there is a little office set up in the third room and having the convenience of internet allowed me to keep up with work while traveling abroad. The owners are extremely helpful and know which direction to point you in for whatever you are looking for off the beaten path. I look forward to retuning to this location once again!

The best things about this property:

Large park across the street and coastal breeze
