The Old Lady at The Sea

The Old Lady at The Sea is a beautiful beachfront property that can accommodated up to 22 guests. The villa is a reconstruction of a 300 year old Dutch house and traditional features adorn the property. When the owners came across this property, it was not much more than a ruined timber factory but they fell in love with the location. The owners stayed true to the original layout and set about restoring its colonial character.

The original villa houses five main bedrooms and the home has been furnished with Dutch period furnishings, floored in black terrazzo and fitted with new bathrooms and air-conditioning. A swimming pool and seaside pavilion has also been added. The property next door was then purchased (lovingly referred to as “Young Lady) and so came an additional 4 bedrooms.

The Old Lady at The Sea now features nine bedrooms and can accommodate up to 22 guests making it a great choice for large families or a group of friends looking for an affordable beachfront retreat. The kitchen is fully equipped but the rates include the services of a cook who will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner (groceries additional charge). Also on hand to ensure a relaxing and memorable stay is a house butler.

You can spend days relaxing on the sun loungers around the pool and enjoy the magnificent ocean views. The pool and villa is nestled in a landscaped garden and a kids pool has been a recent addition to this home’s features.
