One of a kind, built of hand-packed stone, carried by hand from the mountain cliffs of Sunny Cove, with dark beams and gum poles, lovingly thatched. This magical stone cottage offers unsurpassed, sweeping views from its dormer windows, across the whole of False Bay to the Hottentots Holland mountains beyond.
The stone cottage, is fully self-contained with a well-fitted kitchen and cosy lounge. It sleeps four people in two en-suite bedrooms upstairs and with a shower and the offer of an extra two beds downstairs, can stretch its accommodation to six. This is truly an experience not to be missed.
The main bedroom has PIZAZZ! A queen-size four poster wrought-iron bed invites you to "lie-in" and watch the seascape through the delightful dormer windows. In the room is a TV, screened Victorian rolltop bath and basin and separate loo.
The second bedroom has twin three-quarter wrought iron beds with a whale theme and a Victorian bathroom, also with victorian bath and loo, en-suite.
Downstairs are the tastefully furnished and sun-filled lounge and an open-plan solid wood kitchen with fridge/freezer, oven and hob, microwave, crockery, cutlery, toaster, kettle, etc and large eating bar counter. TV includes SABC and MNet. Also downstairs is a shower, basin and loo room.
The Living room has French doors opening directly into A Whale of a Time's wonderfully tranquil garden with its crystal clear, salt water swimming pool and wind-free patio overlooking Fish Hoek Bay. Swim while watching the whales, dolphins, boats and wind-surfers, or chill out with a glass of chilled Cape wine on one of the comfortable cushioned loungers while watching the sunset sky over the bay.
