Condo/Apartment
A stylishly furnished apartment, with views of the fabulous Robberg Nature Reserve and over the Whale Rock Gardens estate. It makes a perfect setting for a couple wanting a secure base for their holiday. There is a shared heated pool a minutes' walk away in front of the apartment (you can just about see the pool from the balconies). Wi-fi is included. DSTV Access is standard; Premium is available at your extra connection cost. But the real attraction is that the apartment (apart from being in the gorgeous Plett itself of course!) is that it is just a 10 minute meander by foot over a wetlands boardwalk to the glorious Robberg Beach, a paradise on earth with views to the right of Robberg Nature Reserve - also a national monument with rocks dating back 120 million years.

It makes a perfect setting for a couple wanting a secure base for their holiday. There is a shared heated pool a minutes' walk away in front of the apartment (you can just about see the pool from the balconies). Wi-fi is included. DSTV Access is standard; Premium is available at your extra connection cost. But the real attraction is that the apartment (apart from being in the gorgeous Plett itself of course!) is that it is just a 10 minute meander by foot over a wetlands boardwalk to the glorious Robberg Beach, a paradise on earth with views to the right of Robberg Nature Reserve - also a national monument with rocks dating back 120 million years. Hiking the Reserve is an amazing experience. Turn left on the beach and it is a 30 minute amble to the iconic Beacon Island Hotel, and a few minutes more over the sand to Moby Dick's Beach Bar, Grill and Restaurant. Plett is a surfer's paradise. Nearby Keurbooms River is a boater's paradise. We have kept this apartment to ourselves as our own holiday home until now, used just once or twice a year since we bought it brand new in 2007, so it is in pristine condition. The apartment is in a block of four apartments, on the first floor. A bench outside the front door is a great sundowner spot looking over to Whale Rock Ridge. The main balcony off the living room can sit 6-8 for outside dining. The balcony off the bedroom features a bistro cafe style table and two chairs - great for coffee and breakfast in the mornings. Whale Rock Gardens is a secure estate, with guards on the gate. It is a couple of minutes drive down Longships to the Beacon Isle shops, and an 8 minute drive into Plettenberg Bay's Main Street with an abundance of shops and restaurants. Market Square is 10 -15 minutes away, with big shops like Woolworths, Edgars, Mung and Bean and Checkers, plus many boutique shops. There are so many great restaurants in Plett! We love Emily Moon's River Lodge, The Lookout Deck, The Plettenberg Hotel, The Table, LM, Lo Spuntino, Enrico's, Sao Goncalo, Down to Earth and Moby Dick's and there are many more we could name. Plettenberg Bay is also becoming famous for its winelands, birding and hiking trails, and is already famous for fabulous wildlife adventures such as Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness and Rehabilitation Centre with its famous big cats; Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Jukani Sanctuary, Wolf Sanctuary, Radical Raptors, Elephant Sanctuary to name but a few. We loved the place so much we have just built a 3 bedroomed house on the estate, also available for holiday rental! Please note we do not let to students/under 21's. More
