In need of a complete relaxing holiday i booked 6 weeks at west Coast Lodge in Bloubergstrand. The owner graham was very helpfull with travel plans and suggestions of places to visit and resturants to try.
On arriving you get the feeling of no expense has been spared. It has high quality and tranquellity and walking through the front door you get the wow factor. It is very spacious, clean with fresh crisp bedding. It has everything that you would like to have a relaxing time, either lazing by the pool or in the bar trying some of the Capes finest wines. Nothing seems too much trouble and Grahams of suggestions of things to do ensure you get out and about to see some of the great views of the western cape.
The time seemed to fly by watching the sun going down behind Robben island from the blue peter hotel with a sundowner just a 10 minute walk away
Cape Town is a short 20 minute drive but the view seemed differant each time i took the journey.
The odd nights in consisted of playing pool or using the wi-fi to keep in touch with back home.
Depression set in as i left as it was a case of back to reallity but i felt recharged and ready to get back to work so i can visit again as soon as possible.
