La Retraite Wilderness

From R1400 per Unit



The holiday home (Three star grading) is situated on the eastern dune in Wilderness, an exclusive area that is renowned for its privacy and virgin beach with unique cliff formations - unspoilt by human development. It is close to the sea (100 m): one can hear the caressing sound of waves and walk to a secluded beach in five minutes. As we are located on the southern slope of the largest dune at the point where the beach road is the furthest away from the highway, we are fortunate to have no traffic noise.

La Retraite Wilderness is the ideal destination for people in pursuit of peace, privacy and harmony with nature. The serenity and magnificent sea- and mountain views may help to bring poetic insights and to restore creativity: a "retraite" in the true sense of the word. The variety of restaurants and the calm lazy air about Wilderness makes it the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the sandy beaches and the lakes provide many opportunities for water sports. Two paddle skis, a canoe and two mountain bikes (Cannondale) are available.

A large garden, a barbecue under shady milkwood trees, four covered terraces, three wooden decks, satellite TV, a DVD player with high fidelity sound, a desktop computer with Internet access and a spacious tiled double garage/play room constitute a venue for entertainment in all weather conditions.
The double story house (floor space: 225 mē) is ideal for two families of four (8 people) or one large family or group of friends. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. All bedrooms are fitted with panel heaters, heated towel rails, ceiling fans and glass sliding doors which give access to the outdoor entertainment and barbecue under large milkwood trees. The bedrooms are furnished with beautiful free standing wardrobes (made in the finest solid wood) to eliminate mildew that plagues built-in cupboards close to the sea.

The top floor is an open plan kitchen/dining room/lounge. It has direct access to wooden decks. The larger northern deck offers an excellent view of the Outeniqua Mountains. From the southern deck a superb view of the ocean and the bay can be enjoyed, especially during the summer months when the sun sets over the sea.
The kitchen is well equipped with beautiful cabinets (Burmese Teak and Cape Yellowwood) and quality integrated German appliances made by Bauknecht, Bosch, and Siemens. Careful optimisation at the technical level has made the operation of the refrigerators, freezer and dishwasher almost inaudible. a Large hot tray and microwave are also available. Meals are served at a large, circular dining table with ten "Volkwyn" chairs made by one of the finest cabinet makers in the Western Cape.
Our laundry has an automatic washing machine (Speed Queen) and a tumble dryer (Speed Queen). The house features good security: electronic alarm, armed response, and a safe to store valuable items.
