You can fly from Cape Town to George, or even better, hire a car at the airport und drive along the beautiful Garden Route to Keurbooms. You will see the unique flora like Kings Protea and smell the Fynbos along the route. Make a stop at the penguins and enjoy the jolly creatures. It is worth while. The whole journey takes you along the sea and you can always stop and visit small fisher hamlets.
Not far from the main road you turn off to Keurbooms into an unspoilt landscape on the sea. There lies the house, only 50 mtrs. from the beach, waiting for you. When you awake in the morning, the first thing you hear is the roar of the surf and with only 3 steps you can have your morning swim. During breakfast on the terrace, you can watch the dolphins, who pass every morning at the same time and return every evening like clockwork. In the distance you can see the lights of Plettenberg Bay, where you can go shopping in the morning and enjoy the restaurants.
