Spectacular views for whale watching. Villa with infinity pool and barbecue.

La Petite Baleine Seaside Villa has spectacular, uninterrupted sea views that sweep across Walker Bay framed by blue mountains beyond. There is an infinity pool and a barbecue situated on the verandah. There is an outside seating area under a Mediterranean inspired pergola.

A Boulle court is situated amongst the indiginous "fynbos"and also has beautiful views.

The villa has four bedrooms and three bathrooms with guest amenities. Three bedrooms are situated in the main section of the villa. One ensuite with an extra length queen bed, the second with an extra length queen bed and the third with a set of bunk beds and a single bed. The second and third bedrooms share separate large bathroom. The fourth bedroom which is ensuite is situated adjacent to the villa. Two of the bedrooms have magnificent ocean views. The master bedroom has air conditioning. The design of the villa is contemporary "beach feeling" with shades of blues and washed whites that suit the never ending expanse of ocean.

There is a lounge area with comfortable seating in the form of a large comfy sofa and day chairs. A flat screen television with satellite connection adds to the entertainment which includes board games. A wood burning fireplace is primed to service both the lounge and the dining room for those cold winter days when whale watching is enjoyed from the villa.

The kitchen is fully equipped with gas/electric stove, microwave and dishwasher. Complimentary tea and coffee is offered as well as basic amenities.

A large dining room table is adjacent to the kitchen and perfect for entertaining friends and family. Complimentary Wi-fi is available throughout the villa.

Shark cage diving is a mere 10 minutes drive which eases the getting to and from the launch site.

An abundance of marine life from the Southern Right Whale to dolphins and seals frequent the cove in front of the house. An easy hiking trail from the house leads you to freshwater caves as well as some famous archaeological sites of human settlements that date back for more than 2000 years.

The housekeeper Nicky Otto will welcome you on arrival and should you require any servicing of the villa during your stay, this can be arranged separately with her.

La Petite Baleine Seaside Villa is well suited for all seasons and perfectly located for whale watching, swimming, hiking and shark cage diving or for taking time out to relax.

Okemos, MI

Gorgeous views, beautiful property, great neighbor

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at La Petite Baleine. Night one featured one of the most incredible sunsets you will ever see; night two was cold, rainy & windy (great day to have a nice fire in the fireplace); night three was back to clear, cloudless and cool. (Being from Michigan, we are somewhat used to the cooler weather)

The villa is beautiful with some of the most magnificent views of the water you will ever see. The bedrooms that we used both looked out upon the water and the 'extra' bedroom/bathroom behind the garage worked out well for our guide/driver/now friend. There were many little extras that were included, coffee & tea, many cooking utensils that you normally don't find at all rentals...a nice plus. There is also a security system set up to protect the villa, which I accidently set off once. Within 1-2 minutes the security guard was there...and I explained to him how I'd set the system off mistakenly. (With a 100R tip, he didn't seem to mind) Although the area seems very safe, it was nice to know that system was there.

We walked down to one of the sea caves and met one of the neighbors walking on our way. He not only took us to the smaller (drip) cave near the villa, but went and got his motorcycle & sidecar and took us on another adventure to a different, larger cave. He went out of his way to show us around and when we invited him back for a beer, he said he'd always wanted to see La Petite Baleine! We gave him the tour and said our good byes, but will always remember his kindness...and our grand adventure.

We saw whales in the bay and enjoyed their frolicking from afar. All in all, a very comfortable place to stay.
