The Whale suite is a large two bedroom, ground floor unit, with large north facing windows on the one side, and two separate and private sun decks facing Mossel bay on the other. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom and toilet and the second bedroom has its own shower and toilet. Apart from one small step at the front door, the unit is quite wheelchair-friendly, as the huge open plan living area would attest; all inter-leading lounge area, dining room and fully equipped kitchen. The small sun deck leads off the dining room's sliding door, and is very conveniently suited for outside cooking like BBQ's or breakfasts. The large wooden sun deck is just outside and above the kitchen's back door, with a gorgeous view over the whole of Mossel bay from east to west.

Sehr tolle Ferienwohnung mit viel Platz und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten.

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns auf Anhieb sehr wohl gefühlt. Der große Wohn- Essbereich, das Herzstück der Ferienwohnung ist der Mittelpunkt für gemütliche Abende. Auch kann man die Dachterrasse mit herrlichen Ausblick auf die Bucht genießen. Ein Grill ist vorhanden und auch eine Waschmaschine. Super zentrale Lage, 20 Minuten nach Mossel Bay und etwa 30 Minuten nach Wilderness . Zum Strand sind es etwa 300 m . Einkaufsmöglichkeiten etwa 3 km . Wir kommen wieder :)

Wunderschöner Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in der großzügigen Wohnung mit dem tollen Sonnendeck sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieterin und ihre Familie waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und empfingen uns mit gefülltem Kühlschrank, Obst und Wein.Das etwas kleine Doppelbett soll demnächst ausgetauscht werden.Das Bad mit Dusche ist ziemlich eng, aber es gibt dazu noch ein Bad mit Badewanne.
