The beach, the wetlands, and the lake combines to give this place an air of complete tranquillity. The fresh wind that blows off the sea, and wild horses (yes, we did see them...7 in fact) is like a soothing balm to the soul.
We loved it! It was a close to Cape Town (so an easy drive in), yet far away enough for it to feel like a complete break from the hum-drum of the work week.
The rondavel was well equipped, and comfortable. We stayed in no 5, and it was situated to the side facing the wetlands. There was also a seating area for watching the brilliant sunsets.
We will definitely be back - matter of fact, we have already booked 6 days for the end of the year!
