VillaVue is tastefully decorated & sleeps 10 people in 5 rooms on 3 levels with luxurious linen. It is well equipped with all amenities, incl. open plan kitchen on the top floor. It is exceptionally well located from the harbour & sea front with great sea views. Attractions are rockpools, fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, whale watching, shark diving, beer, cheese & wine tasting, abalone sampling & many more. It's only a few meters' walk from the Great White House Restaurant -- recommended.

The space
The house offers 3 levels of spacious living with 5 rooms, 2 kitchens, 3 shower rooms, 1 bathroom with a shower, open plan integrated kitchen, braai area (bbq), dining room and lounge, entertainment room with table tennis, games, wine and beverage fridges, a studio that offers working space, outside pergola with braai area (bbq) and spacious garden.

Guest access
The facilities are entirely yours to enjoy. 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.

Other things to note
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.
