About Catarina Chemaly

I am a Swedish South African :-). Have been living in Western Cape with my South African husband for 15 years. We are blessed with two busy boys 6 and 8 years.

Catarina Chemaly purchased this house in 2008

Why Catarina Chemaly chose Pringle Bay

We fell in love with Pringle Bay! It is a hidden Gem with beautiful unspoilt white sandy beach surrounded by mountains and fynbos. The beautiful beach is unspoilt, clean and without crowds! It will feel like your own private piece of beach. The peace and quiet is something you wont believe until you experience it. The African star sky something you will gaze at! Pringle Bay feels far away from hustle and bustle of city-life yet it is within 1 h drive to Cape Town - along the most spectacular Clarence Marine Drive where whales can be spotted. All you need is in Pringle Bay town: restaurants, coffee shops,grocery shops and even a local 'theater' with live entertainment and a local biscuit 'factory'.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location... Spacious, light, clean and well maintained with everything you need for your comfort. Views to enjoy whilst you comfortable relax with the sound of the sea as a soft background. Read one of the many books or spend time with your family/friends playing one of the board games or solve a puzzle. The stunning beach is reached within 3 minutes walk.

Several great destinations for half or whole day outings...

Perfect holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday house. We had a terrific 4 nights at the house in march and even the high winds could not take away our pleasure at this, a top spot. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a house at the beach. Fresh flowers in all the rooms was a lovely touch and having a good sized freezer and toys and books for our 2 year old made our stay even more pleasurable. Unusually comfortable beds for a rental made our stay perfect.

Great Getaway with Fantastic Beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house had everything needed to make it comfortable and was very clean. We especially enjoyed the living room with its views! The location was perfect and the children loved the beach. Only a couple of minutes walk. What a treat to braai to the sound of the sea! Hope to be back soon!

A perfect place for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay at Dreams.

The house is well decorated to feel cozy and comfortable and is equipped with almost all facilities - from the dishwasher to the hair dryer.

Also, there is a variety of toys for little kids, board games and books for both kids and adults - you won't be bored even if it storms outside.

For those who want to enjoy the attractions nearby, the owner carefully prepared a file of information booklets and brochures, which we followed and never failed! Without those information, we would never know the small nature reserve where we saw a herd of wild horses right in front of us!

Car: recommended

Most airlines fly to the popular Cape Town destination in South Africa. British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, South African Airways, Virgin, Emirates are just few. Look out for specials or preferably - book your seats well ahead of time to get a good price.

Pick up your rented car at the airport when you have arrived at Cape Town International Airport. Avis, Budget, Europcar, Thrifty and Tempest are just some of the car rental companies offering car rentals and pick up at Cape Town International Airport.

Pringle Bay is located only 67km from Cape Town International Airport. Without stops it will take one hours drive from Cape Town International Airport to Pringle Bay and Dreams. But the chances are good that you will 'just have to stop' along the Clarence Marine Drive to take in the spectacular views - or if in season (June-November) try to spot a Southern Right Whale.

Detailed directions will be emailed upon confirmed booking - or any time upon request.

Don't miss this 'hidden gem' in unspoilt nature - the perfect place for a relaxing holiday 'away from it all' but only a short drive to the busy and vibrant Cape Town.

In the area: hiking, whale watching, bird watching, beaches, fishing, sandboarding, surfing, cycling, guided tours, botanical garden, wine tasting, shark diving, golf and much more.

If you are looking for a relaxing holiday or weekend getaway – far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet close to civilization – Pringle Bay is the place to go. This quiet and relaxed village has plenty to offer. It is situated only 67 km from Cape Town International Airport, along the Whale Coast in the unique Kogelberg Biosphere.

Pringle Bay’s beautiful white sandy beach is surrounded by sand dunes on the one side and the ocean on the other. The beach is about 2 km long and set against a backdrop of mountains covered by our unique and beautiful fynbos. Across the ocean you can see Table Mountain. The river mouth is the favorite spot for children.

The gravel roads add to the feeling of relaxed holiday mode and traffic can not be heard from the R44. As there are no street lights the beauty of the African night sky can be enjoyed without light pollution.

In Pringle Bay you will find a variety of places to eat and even a local biscuit “factory” making irresistible treats.

If you wish to enjoy the beauty of nature stroll along the beach or take one of the many hikes in the area. Harold Porter Botanical Garden is only 10 minutes drive from Pringle Bay, there you can go for a stroll or hike. In Bettys Bay you can rent boards and go sand boarding on the dunes against the mountain – lots of fun for all ages, or why not visit the penguin colony. During June-November stop along the beautiful
