About Owner

The property is owned by myself Paul, my wife Jill and our lifelong friends John & Christina. We are now early retired from the careers of Sales/Marketing, Banking, Law and Nursing.

Owner purchased this House in 2000

Why Owner chose Knysna

We all fell in love with SA in general and Knysna in particular when we first visited in the 1995. We visited the then newly opened then "Sparrebosch" Golf and Clifftop Estate in 2000 and to our own complete surprise bought a plot of land which in our opinion had the best view on the estate. We then set about the task of finding an architect (Tom Joyce) and builder (Clive Bouwer who both turned out to be absolutely fantastic. To cut a long story short our "dream house" was completed in March 2002. We now spend up about 3 months a year in Ocean House and are continually upgrading the house and garden.

What makes this House unique

What can I say, there is so much to love.... Set in an amazing prime position on the Pezula Golf Estate. Ocean House has spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, the surrounding golf course and the Outeniqua Mountains. Offering accommodation of a very high standard, our house can accommodate up to 8 in spacious luxury. Some of the benefits offered include 2 double and 2 twin bedrooms, galleried landing, double volume open plan living and dinning area, television area with satellite TV, fully equipped kitchen, utility room, braai (BBQ) / garden room. The outside areas include a heated infinity pool, landscaped gardens, ocean facing braai room deck and pool terrace and a north facing secluded lawned garden area. Enjoy!

                                                          A lovely house in a beautiful location

                                                          If you want to travel the Garden Route to play golf, watch whales (if you go at the right time of year) or simply enjoy the beauty of South Africa, Knysna is a wonderful place to visit, and this is an excellent house in which to stay. Ocean House is very well appointed and has everything you would ever need if you're planning on staying in the area. It overlooks the Indian Ocean and the Pezula golf estate, and is just a short drive from Knysna with it's wide range of shops and food stores and excellent restaurants around the harbour or on Thesen Island. And if you're planning on playing golf, the Pezula golf course meanders through the valleys behind the house and along the coast and is an excellent challenge for golfers of all standards. Just down the road from Pezula there is also Kynsna which is a traditional members' golf club that boarders the lagoon and Simola, a Jack Nicklaus designed course created up in the hills behind Knysna offering fantastic views across the whole area. Overall, it's a really good place to stay.

                                                          many thanks to owners Paul & Jill


                                                          Knysna, Knysna, South Africa

                                                          Coast/Beach: This area is a paradise for nature lovers, the vast Knysna lagoon offers many activities including sailing canoeing, fishing and water skiing. Within the estate there is exclusive access to "The Cove" via some steep steps. There is a gently shelving sandy beach within the lagoon on Leisure Isle a 10 minute drive away. Stunning sandy beaches on the Indian Ocean at Noetzie, Brenton on Sea, Buffels Bay and Plettenberg Bay offer exciting surfing and other activities all within a 30 minute drive. Travel: Knysna is located some 500 kilometres from Cape Town, 200 from Port Elizabeth and 60 from George all of which have international airports. Access to Knysna by car is via the N2 which links the whole of the Southern Cape. Bus services also link Knysna with these major cities/towns. We would recommend however that when staying at Ocean House a hire car is essential to make the most of your stay. Distances: The centre of Knysna is a 10 minute drive away with its excellent restaurants, shops, art galleries, banks and the Knysna Waterfront where boat trips and sailing in the lagoon and beyond are available. There are also other numerous superb golf courses within easy reach these include Knysna, Simola, Goose Valley, Plettenberg Bay and George including the world famous Fancourt Golf Club. All these courses are between a 10 minute and 1 hour's drive. Further Details: The surrounding indigenous forest has numerous marked trails for hiking and mountain biking. Other activities include abseiling, ballooning and paragliding to name but a few. Between June and December look out for the majestic whales that visit these shores and which can be seen from Ocean House. The Southern Cape is malaria free and there are game lodges and safari experiences all along the Garden Route but particularly in the Eastern Cape near to Port Elizabeth.
