There’s magic in the air when travelling down the West Coast. While the Western Cape is home to some incredible destinations, this part of the province really does live up to the unofficial saying: “West Coast is the best coast.”
It’s not easy to pick your favourite spot along the West Coast but a pristine coastline, stunning sea views and an abundance of nature make St Helena Bay the perfect destination for nature enthusiasts.
But when you are treated to an abundance of nature, sometimes you’d like a little luxury with that too.
Silver Bay Villa is one such place. Boasting four bedrooms and five bathrooms, it’s the perfect accommodation for those looking to spend a tranquil weekend away with friends or family.
The property is an architectural dream, a fact that is not surprising when you consider it was designed by Greg Truen as a luxury escape that is meant to encompass “barefoot luxury” – mission accomplished.
The space offers an open-plan design with a windless courtyard that offers stunning views. It’s a great location if you’re looking to enjoy the fresh ocean breeze while drinking in all that this mesmerising area has to provide.
Sea-facing glass doors that open up onto the sprawling terrace provide the perfect spot for a summer (or winter) braai. Or take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool before watching the sun go down.
The property is located a stone’s throw away from Stompneus Baai, a secluded beach that offers tidal rock pools and large granite boulders that are perfect for paddling and exploring the shore.
Admire the playful dolphins in the distance as you soak up the luxury of this sprawling beachside villa – this must be heaven.
