                                                          what a fantastic beach-house

                                                          Matthas W.

                                                          we have been at this house for three weeks and enjoyed every second of our stay. Direct beach location within the nature reserve brings a unique mix. Nature observation directly from the house coupled with all the amenities offered by the very well-equipped and tastefully furnished and large house. Endless beaches to explore are just a foot step away. Groceries and restaurants are about 10 min by car. Within a radius of one hour by car you can reach a number of unique nature gems such as De Mond and De Hoop nature reserves. A must for the nature lover to visit. Of course there is a multitude of more things to do in the region, best have a look yourself!

                                                          If you are looking for a tranquil place to "refill your soul fuel" this is your "station" to do so!

                                                          It never felt that hard to leave a holiday home at the end of the holiday.... . We hope to be able to come back soon!

                                                          Thank you Riegert & family for sharing this magnificent location with us.

                                                          Thanks for your review, makes we want to leave the office and rush to Suiderstrand.

                                                          Regards

                                                          Stunning location for adventuring friends!

                                                          Ann Rappoport

                                                          We were a group of 8 friends exploring and birding in The Western Cape after attending a conference in Cape Town. This seafront home we spacious and comfortable for exploring nearby nature reserves and is in a stunning location near the southernmost tip of Africa. Beautiful rock and sand beach for walks adjacent to the house and a couple mountain bikes for exploring quiet roads. We enjoyed making a delicious Braai one night and local restaurant Guidste Kaap as well.

                                                          Entspannung pur

                                                          Das Haus bietet alles, was man sich für einen entspannten Urlaub vorstellt. Der Vermieter war bereits bei der ersten Kontaktaufnahme sehr freundliche und hilfsbereit. Wir würden gerne jederzeit dort wieder Urlaub machen.

                                                          I grew up less than a 2 hour drive from this place and had been visiting Struisbaai and L'Agulhas all my life, but had never been to Suiderstrand. What an amazing discovery the little resort and Riegert & Alinda's home in particular was on our recent visit and stay over Christmas. We loved it so much we stayed an extra day. I don't think we will ever stay anywhere else when we visit the area. The house is perfectly situated with gorgeous views for spectacular sunset - right on the beach. The home is spacious, has every amenity you might need for a comfortable stay; from sea kayaks, to hot tub, to owner's tips on activities in the area, to braai equipment, to fully equipped kitchen. It is spacious enough so that our large family (group of 5 adults and 2 kids) could all relax and enjoy without being under each others feet. The town of Suiderstrand is literally "the end of the road," yet you are less than 10 min drive from the restaurants, shops etc. in L'Agulhas and Struisbaai.

                                                          I cannot recommend this property enough if what you are looking for is peace and relaxation in comfort. We loved it.

                                                          Wonderful calm retreat

                                                          Marie-Theres S.

                                                          We spent 2,5 weeks in March at this beautiful location and enjoyed it so much. We are a family with one four year old. The house is situated at the end of the bay and is reached via a 5km gravel road (repair work began when we left). So there were not many people except some fishermen you could watch. We were on our own on the beach on many days.

                                                          The house offers a lot of space, so we only used some rooms as it can be used by up to 10 people. Every room offers a stunning view to the sea which is very relaxing

                                                          There is an outdoor shower which was useful with a little boy coming from the beach. The house is well equipped and has all neccessary facilities. In some details it might need a little make-over.

                                                          We felt very independent there and on some days we just enjoyed ourselves being at home, sitting on the veranda or lying in the hammock. We can just recommend to stay there and we thank Riegert and his family that they shared this beautiful place with us!

                                                          Vous cherchez le calme et confort.

                                                          Vous cherchez le dépaysement et l'air marin.

                                                          N'hésitez pas, contactez Riegert.

                                                          Sa maison immense débouche directement sur la plage. Un paysage grandiose à 180°

                                                          Très très bien équipée, vous n'aurez pas assez de votre séjour pour apprécier toutes les possibilités qu'elle peut vous offrir.

                                                          Proche de la maison, la Réserve De Hoop, le Parc National d'Aguilhas, la surprenante Réserve De Mond.

                                                          Les couleurs du soir sont extraordinaires à ce point où se rejoignent l'Océan Indien et l'Océan Atlantique.

                                                          Je me répète: allez-y

                                                          Location

                                                          Cape Agulhas Municipality, South Africa

                                                          By car only Suiderstrand is a quiet village on an unspoilt coastline: if you visit outside holiday periods you will have the beaches virtually for yourself. Take long walks. Visit the shipwreck close by. Cycle along the back roads up the mountain and enjoy endless views over the sea and veld. Explore the quiet bay in the front of the house with a cano. The small unpretencious seaside villages of Agulhas and Struisbaai, 5 and 10 mins away, offer shopping facilities, gift shops, a few galleries displaying local art, a beauty salon or two and some restaurants. Choose between e.g. fish on the harbour or a top end 3 course meal paired with local wines in the Agulhas Lodge. Struisbaai has a 14 km stretch of pure white beach- longest in the Southern hemisphere. Also offers horseriding on the beach, angling trips and tennis courts. If you want to explore a bit further: visit a selection of boutique wine farms 30 mins to an hour away. For a day trip, you may want to do cage shark diving at Gansbaai, visit some of the inland rural towns, visit Hermanus or visit Koppie Alleen in the De Hoop Nature reserve for what is claimed to be one of the best land based whale spotting spots in the world.(Whale season July - Oct).
