VillaVue offers beautiful unrestricted sea views. There is a tidal pool, swings on the green for the kids, rockpools, lovely walking areas along the beach front & hiking trails on the coastline, even all the way to the Danger Point lighthouse, which can be entered at a small fee. You can go fishing off the harbour wall, kayaking when conditions permit or even play a little bit of golf on the village course. The African penguin sanctuary is close by, and when it's whale watching season the area offers great spotting opportunities. The house is unfortunately not wheel chair friendly. Parking is available on the paved area in front of the garage, or within the cul de sac. The facilities are entirely yours to enjoy. You can reach me via WhatsUp or SMS (texting) for any assistance. A once-off cleaning fee of R850 along with a refundable breakage fee of R1500 apply, the latter only being refundable within 14 days post the end of your stay. Pre-cooked food can be arranged in advance. There is a chauffeur / shuttle service available which can be arranged. A small shop is available at the fueling station around the corner for limited convenience shopping. There is a SuperSpar and OKFood in the close-by village of Gansbaai about 3km away where all your convenience shopping could be done. Fresh fish could be bought at the Gansbaai Fish Market in the Gansbaai harbour. Fernkloof Nature Reserve offers great hiking in the mountains at Hermanus. When you travel through the Overberg between Caledon & Akkedisberg Pass, you'll spot our national bird, the Blue Crane, in the fields next to the road. The Great White Shark cage diving expeditions leave from the harbour that is almost on our door step, with the nearby Walker Bay / De Kelders being the whale watching spot of the area, better than Hermanus. There are also quad biking, horse riding, ocean caves exploration & a big cat sanctuary visit to be considered. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 7204080130082More

About the neighbourhood
VillaVue offers beautiful unrestricted sea views. There is a tidal pool, swings on the green for the kids, rockpools, lovely walking areas along the beach front & hiking trails on the coastline, even all the way to the Danger Point lighthouse, which can be entered at a small fee. You can go fishing off the harbour wall, kayaking when conditions permit or even play a little bit of golf on the village course. The African penguin sanctuary is close by, and when it's whale watching season the area offers great spotting opportunities. When you travel through the Overberg between Caledon & Akkedisberg Pass, you'll spot our national bird, the Blue Crane, in the fields next to the road.
Getting around
The Great White Shark cage diving expeditions leave from the harbour that is almost on our door step, with the nearby Walker Bay / De Kelders being the whale watching spot of the area, better than Hermanus. There are also quad biking, horse riding, ocean caves exploration & a big cat sanctuary visit to be considered. Kleinbaai provides a tranquil environment close to the southern most tip of Africa, where you can reminisce whilst watching the ocean and activities in-and-out of the harbour, sipping on the great wines from the region, chomping on the area's international award winning cheese and explore the outdoors in adventurous, or less so, ways. Bookings for activities could be made on-line or at The Great White House around the corner.
