Expansive sea view villas with 3 and 2 bedroom options in private Nature Reserve
Situated in a protected nature reserve perched high on the cliffs and surrounded by forest, fynbos and ocean, these villas are the perfect getaway for those seeking peace and tranquility. Designed by a multi-award winning architect, the houses blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape in a combination of light, glass, wood and space. Luxuriously and tastefully furnished, all rooms have beautiful views; watch whales and dolphins from the sea facing decks or bird watch from the fynbos deck. Fynbos or Cape Floral Kingdom has the highest density of plants in the world and attracts a myriad of bird and animal life, which can be enjoyed from all areas of the houses. Enjoy numerous walking trails that wind through the nature reserve where wildlife including antelope, zebra, karakul, porcupine and bush pig roam. Ballots Bay where the river meets the sea, is a fisherman’s paradise and is perfect for exploring and foraging.
Villa 24 has 3 bedrooms en suite all with beautiful views. Large open plan living / dining / kitchen, all with spectacular views. Drink sundowners on the sea deck with sweeping views of ocean, forest and cliffs.
Villa 8 has 2 luxurious bedrooms en suite with spectacular ocean views. Positioned directly on the cliffs, whales come in to calve so close you can hear them. Huge pods of dolphin swim past daily. Painted white, this villa has a contemporary feel with beautiful fabrics and exceptional quality linen, kitchen utensils and finishes.
There are many walks in the nature reserve that wind through fynbos and forest, along cliffs, down to rock pools and to the pebbly bay where the Meulen river enters the sea. You can barbecue at the bay or in a magical clearing in the forest.

Beautiful home and wonderful owners
This house was incredible! The views, the design, the location, everything was just perfect. The owners are very responsive and helpful, just all around gracious hosts. We enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back for a future stay!
I spent a few days on the garden route and used this house as a ?base camp? and it?s probably the best base camp in the world. The location is great with a 20 min drive to George or Wilderness, but the essence of the place is its location within Ballots Heights on top of the cliff with uninterrupted sea views (which was awesome for a city boy like me!). Sally and Henry are fantastic hosts and it was useful to have them next door giving hints and tips (and to start the odd fire in the stove). My only regret was not having enough time... but it leaves a reason to go again!
WunderschönesFerienhaus in traumhafter Lage
Wir haben knapp zwei Wochen in diesem tollen Ferienhaus verbracht und haben damit absolut die richtige Wahl geverbrachtDie Ausstattung ist sehr gut und die Lage einfach fantastisch. Wir können dieses Haus wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Glücklicherweise gibt es auch einen Ofen zum Heizen, da bei uns im März das Wetter auch mal schlecht war. Der Weg zum Haus ist sehr abenteuerlich und stellenweise auch steil. Es empfiehlt sich ein entsprechendes Auto.
Henry and I are delighted that you loved your stay in this very special place. As usual in March we have very warm weather, but also some chilly days and so the great Morso wood stove is useful. Please don't be put off by the road - although it is steep, you do not need a 4x4, in fact a small car is best. We call the road magical!
5 stars are not enough. Das Haus, der Meerblick und die Landschaft sind nicht zu übertreffen und für sich ein Höhepunkt des Urlaubs. Man erkennt sofort, dass hier ein Architekt seine Ideen verwirklicht hat. Eigentlich möchte man den ganzen Tag im Haus bleiben und nur auf die wilde Landschaft und den Ozean sehen. Sally und Henry sind super nett, total entspannt und hilfsbereit. Wilderness ist traumhaft schön und der ideale Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Wir haben uns im Haus und der Umgebung ausnahmslos sicher gefühlt. Etwas abenteuerlich ist die einspurige Straße zu den cliff houses. Es geht wie im Urwald hoch und runter mit einigen Kurven, zum Glück ohne Steilhänge. Wenn man die Straße ein paar mal gefahren ist, macht das sogar richtig Spaß. Sally and Henry, we`ve totally enjoyed the holiday in your house and we`ll come back :)
