Living it up by the sea

Grootvlei Guest Farm

Whether you fancy your break-away stylish and trendy, or casual and free-spirited, Grootvlei Guest Farm has it all.

Overlooking the prismatic blue Atlantic Ocean, 6 km from Lambert’s Bay, the entire estate features a white-washed aesthetic reminiscent of an authentic Greek island. Accommodation choices are the 4-star Grootvlei Guest House, the 3-star Grootvlei on the Dunes, an Eco-Friendly Village and the two-bedroomed Farm House B&B.

Perched within steps from the beach, On The Dunes Guest House is quite the architectural marvel with its four elegantly rustic shell-shaped en-suite rooms. Even the shower is encased in a shell!

All-round opulence marks the seven double bedrooms in the Luxury Guest House. Surrounded by splendid gardens, various lounge areas, outside patios and coffee corners offer cosy retreats to appreciate the good life.

The Eco-Friendly village with its communal kitchen and living space is decidedly footloose and fancy-free. Fifteen cute-as-a-button two-sleeper en-suite ‘bird nests’ allow you to get up close and personal with nature.

Grootvlei definitely is for everyone who needs the smell of the surf. Have a stab at fishing in the farm ponds, bike, hike, stargaze, watch Heaviside’s dolphins and check out birds. Apart from that, you have rambling dunes, crashing waves, luxury and relaxation. What more to wish for?
