Overview

Gansbaai Villa Rental Photos and Description

Full privacy and unspoilt views, 3 bedrooms with bathrooms

Villa The Cherry is an Atlantic dream villa on the cliff with unspoiled view over the ocean and adjacent to Walker Bay Nature Reserve. You have sun & shadow all day, spectacular sea view in front, silence all over and stars all night. It has 3 bedrooms each with bathroom. Whales right in front of the villa, great white shark diving. The Cherry lies in a quiet village near Hermanus. The villa, graded with 5-stars by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, is ultramodern, very exclusive and offers 100% privacy. You have a private pool, all comforts: modern kitchen with many appliances, Sattelite TV, Hi-Fi, DVD, iMac, WiFi, underfloor heating, cleaning lady twice a week (daily on request). It is an ideal spot to relax, read or write a book and rethink your life and love. Restriction: house and surrounding are not suitable for children under 15.

Great white shark excursions: In the ('big 2') village of Gansbaai, several tour operators offer boat excursions for whale watching and cage diving excursions to the Great White Shark. This location is the best spot on earth to see and touch these impressive creatures.

Whales in Walkerbay: Whales with their babies can be seen daily directly and very close in front of the villa during the 'whale season', from June until January. All year long you can enjoy the rich aqua fauna, hundreds of bird species, thousands of fynbos species, ancient Khoisan caves, etc. All these impressive natural delights are to be discovered directly around the villa.

A 2-p kayak is available in the villa for strolling along the coastline.

Wines: In this Walker Bay area you can visit a dozen excellent wine farms, such as Hamilton Russell , Bouchard Finlayson, Newton Johnson. Also a scenic day tour through the mountains brings you to famous wine regions around Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.

About Eddy Scheffer

I am a Dutch engineer, retired. In 1996 South Africa came in me and never left again.

Soon I started up business in Cape Town and explored the coastal region to find the perfect spot for building a holiday home on a European quality level.

Eddy Scheffer purchased this villa in 1997

Why Eddy Scheffer chose Gansbaai

When a house is on the seaside, there should be nothing between the house and the sea: no traffic, no road, not even a walkway, just nature.

Also, the privacy should be perfect: no views from the outside into the house or onto the deck and pool ares.

Finally, one must be able to choose a place in the shade or in the sun any time of the day.

That was the challenge for the architect, Gie Wollaert, and he succeeded.

What makes this villa unique

During whale season (june-november) the whales and their babies will greet you almost daily. My guarantee: You will receive a 100% refund in case you would not see the whales right in front of the villa during your stay!

My family spent a glorious week at the wonderfull villa and had an absolutely perfect and relaxing vacation. The villa is comfortable and more than enough room for our party of four.

The property was very clean, fantastic and the facilities were very good.

The photos do not really do the property justice as it is even more spacious and welcoming than the photos depict.

We had total privacy in a beautiful location with all the comforts of home.

We would definitely go back to this Villa if we get another chance to visit south africa.
