My place is close to the beach and the world famous kite surfing spot on the Breede River. You’ll love my place because of the outdoor space and the stylish & laid-back interior. My place is good for couples, families (with kids) and water sport enthusiasts.
The living space has a comfy sofa, easy chairs and two dining areas. The open-plan kitchen is fitted with an oven, dishwasher, gas hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and an Italian coffee pot. The two downstairs double and family suites have their own private entrances and are completely separate from the rest of the house upstairs. A staircase on the outside links the two. The outside braai area has a fire pit and is beautifully protected from the wind and the undercover chill-out area is fitted with built-in seating and a ceramic fire place to keep you cosy while cooking a meal on the fire. A flat screen TV is provided. However, if you'd like to watch television, bring your own DSTV decoder along.
Witsand is well known for the Southern Right whales that visit the bay during the winter months from July to October to give birth. Beautifully clean beaches and the magnificence of the Cape Flora Kingdom - Witsand Beach is an unspoilt piece of paradise, with safe swimming, kite surfing, windsurfing, angling, deep sea fishing, snorkelling and rock pools to explore, along with the birdlife of the Breede River estuary.
  • Thanks Sonja for a nice stay in you house! The kids loved your braai area!!

    Karel2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sonja is the perfect host, super reactive and always willing to help. His place is the perfect lovely beach house, walkable distance from the lagoon. we particulary appreciate the decoration and the style of the house. I'll recommend Sonja's place.

    Antoine2016-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week at Sonja's lovely house in Witsand and it was absolutely amazing. We were two couples - us with a 1 year old and the other couple with a 7 and 10 year old. The upstairs section has a lovely feel to it and the two bottom "apartments" are beautiful and well furnished. The outside braai pit and covered stoep was a winner all week long!

    Arthur2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, well kitted out, and a short walk to the beach. Sonja was a great host, and provided lots of communication to make sure we got to the place ok and had a good time.

    Hans2016-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for a wonderful, relaxed long weekend, just what our family needed to chill, regroup and enjoy some fresh sea-air! Loved the decor and the outside boma area!

    Mariki 2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Would recommend the accomodation to everyone, just as the pics show it. Outside Braai area was the highlight. Saw whales out to sea, all in all a lovely stay. Joanne

  • The photos of this listing do not do it justice! It is a beautiful home and very tastefully decorated. The house was perfectly suited to our large group and we enjoyed all aspects of it: sitting with our early morning cup of coffee on the deck looking out to sea; enjoying a "braai" and having dinner outside one evening on the other deck; tanning on the loungers by the pool; playing board games in the evenings with the children around the long dining room table; long walks along the beach every day and studying the activity in the rockpools; the children body boarding close by; and even a small supermarket nearby for anything we might have forgotten! The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and we all slept. I would not hesitate in recommending this listing. Wendi was very thoughtful and always quick in replying to any queries I had. Although a great summer beach house, this listing would be as comfortable in the winter too. What wonderful memories we all made here :)

    Ingrid2016-03-29T00:00:00Z

    Very relaxing and charming, neat and tidy cottage. Glorious walks over nearby sand dunes as well as great fishing, boating and swimming in the sea or river. Walking distance to shop and restaurant. Great get-away for all times of the year.
  • A really wonderful beach holiday home, Philippa's place is fantastically positioned to be able to walk to the sea, the lagoon, and to Nella's shop - all within a minute or two! The house itself is very comfortable, and equipped with everything you might need, whilst Philippa herself was easily accessible to answer and questions we had. A great family beach home.

  • A lovely home away from home. The house was really clean, comfortable and well equipped. Absolutely everything we needed was there. There were little touches around the house that made us feel so welcomed. I'd definitely recommend this to any friends or family wanting to get out of the city and stay in a lovely well-equipped, spacious holiday home.

    Megan2017-04-06T00:00:00Z

    Seehuis is the best place for families and friends to get together to have a great time - as close to the sea as you can get. The view is incredible. Seehuis is an upmarket beach house decorated with happy beach colours. We like good quality furniture, bed linen and kitchen equipment. We have a large kitchen, outside braai, playroom with a pool table, table tennis table and dart board and a big screen TV.
    Built for family and fun, Seehuis is the best place get together to have a great time. We can easily accommodate two small families with children. The view is incredible. It feels as if you are on a ship in the ocean. There are sea views from almost any room in the house. You can even do whale watching from the shower and the loo. Our kitchen equipped for a chef (and all his helpers). The outside braai can feed a hungry crowd. DSTV is available on request.
    Witsand is a very quiet town popular for fishing in the sea and in the river. It is the ideal place if you want to get away and unwind. No shopping malls. Other things to do is swimming, walking, cycling, running, kite surfing, kayaking, birding, reading, sleeping, eating and drinking wine.

    My house is right on the beach with lovely sea views from the lounge and two upstairs bedrooms. You’ll love my place because of the chilled ambiance, the natural light and seaviews. It is great for couples or friends looking at having a break away from home and to enjoy this quiet little coastal town which is famous for fishing and kitesurfing. There is an inside Braai/BBQ /fireplace that is wonderfull in winter There is also a mobile outside braai that can be moved around
    There is only two basic grocery shops so best to take all your own groceries! The water can sometime be brown but it is still okay to drink
  • Beautiful, clean and everything you could wish for in a holiday home. Loved the decor, underfloor heating, indoor fireplace (braai), fluffy towels and cleanliness. I can highly recommend this awesome safe place.

    Michelle2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house could not be more perfect for two families (or a family traveling with the in-laws, like me). There are two main bedrooms that both look out onto the beach below and ocean beyond. The living area on the ground floor is an open lounge, dining, kitchen space - sounds cramped, but it was large and spacious. Comfortable. There's space enough for everyone with beautiful sliding doors that lead out to the path going down to the beach. The sandy beach by the house is narrow but it's adjacent to rock pools that are absolutely full of life when the tide goes out. My children got to see "a real starfish that really lives in the real ocean" as my 6year old put it. And we saw fish and anemones and urchins and crabs and snails! A new host of creatures and shell hunting to be had every time the tide went out. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone and am already hoping to be able to visit again with friends and family.

    Michelle2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • We fully loved this place! The views and closeness to the ocean is stunning. The kitchen has all you need. Bed rooms are great we slept really well. Cleanl. Good braai place and internal fire place. And really good environment for writing. We got lots done while having a good time! This is a place that really is what Lacea says it is. Highly highly recommended. Thanks!

    Our house is a spacious 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in a quiet area of Witsand. The house has a large lounge/dining room area and a separate entertainment area. The north-facing patio is ideal for sundowner time while you have the meat on the coals and enjoying an endless view of the farmlands and Langeberg mountains in the distance. The house is 1 km away from the river and 2 kms from the famous Blue Flag Witsand beach. Sheltered parking for a car and/or boat is also available.
    - Full DSTV including sport at R25 per day. - Bathroom 1: Shower, basin, toilet and bathtub. - Bathroom 2 (main en-suite): Shower, basin and toilet. - Cooking is with gas (top) with an electric oven. - Under-cover parking for either your vehicle or boat with two launch facilities close by at the Government Jetty (1 km) and Kraaltjie (2.5 kms).
    The area is well-known for its angling, kite surfing, boating, hiking, whale watching (August to October) and animal life – apart from the ostrich in the nearby farm, it is not uncommon to witness small buck, many different bird species and tortoises paying a visit in the garden. There are various shops in the area to cater for your food and angling needs with good restaurants and pubs in close proximity. While shopping is typical of your beach-side town, there is ample shopping in nearby Heidelberg with a supermarket, banks and a co-operative for all your outdoor and hardware needs. While in Witsand, why not take a drive to Cape Infanta via the novel cross-river pont that is operated by hand at Malgas and takes most small to medium sized vehicles. Explore also the trading post and hotel nearby. Or stroll along the main beach from The Anchorage to the river mouth. Who knows, there may even be an elusive Pansy Shell in your path.
  • Great House in Witsand! Thanks for everything!!

  • The house is very comfortable and spacious, with an absolutely beautiful view of the Breede River. The sheltered balcony with the braai was a huge plus as it was completely protected from the wind that came up quite strong in the afternoons. We had a relaxing weekend in Witsand with plenty of beach and fishing time. The local coffee/craft shop is a little gem. Tania was a great host and very responsive which added to the enjoyable weekend, making all the arrangements with regard to the accommodation effortless.

Witsand gives you a real fisherman's village vibe and the beaches are great for long walks or chatting to locals about the catch of the day! We appreciated the friendly faces and the peaceful environment!!

  • Have had a wonderful time at Witsand. So peaceful. Walked on beach- found 15 pansie shells on our first day!! House was very clean & comfortable and well equipment and a bonus having our own jetty. We were 6 adults and 3 kids. Beautiful views and very conveniently situated. Shinel met us on arrival and was very helpful showing us around. Can highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

    My place is almost on the beach. It has its own beach and is situated 2 km from the Breede river Mouth. My place is good for families (with kids) and big groups of friends and extremely safe. Kids have extensive safe beaches and swimming areas.
  • Karl's spot is perfectly located right on the beach. This makes for a fuss free time especially with kids. At high tide the water is knee deep and at low tide there is a 300m wide sandflat. Great fishing and pansy shell hunting. A fantastic family holiday spot away from the maddening crowds.

  • Infanta is really beautiful. The lack of a shop means extra care should be taken when catering to avoid having to drive the 20 km dirt road to the nearest shop.

  • Witsand was a great place to go for a relaxing weekend away. This compact unit had the basic amenities we needed for the weekend. It was well located - and conveniently very close to a great beach restaurant/bar. It was missing a couple of the amenities which were listed, but sure the host will amend this as we phoned him to let him know - we didn't meet him personally. Check-in was done via the friendly staff at the hotel front desk
