The house was built and finished in 1992 and the name is well-known in Yzerfontein. The owners found the lewens-essens medicine bottle on the plot and decided that there was no better way to get "essens for one's life" than by enjoying the wonderful views and sun sets from the front stoep.The historic bottle was mounted with the name and can be seen on the front of the house.

Guest Comments

Excellent stay. Can recommend both Lewens-Essens and Yzerfontein. Great place, great people.

The hospitality at Lewens-Essens was absolutely wonderful. We were able to completely relax and forget about the world with our stay there. The view is spectacular, nothing like the fresh sea breeze to comfort the soul. I would recommend a stay there to anyone who would like to break away and rejuvenate.

Our stay at Lewens-Essens was memorable. Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our breakfasts were amazing - delicious and so filling! The view from our bedroom was breathtaking and it was great to be able to get up and just walk across the road and be on the beach. Thank you both so much.
