Enchanted Getaway in Cape Town Nature Reserve
About Enchanted Getaway in Cape Town Nature Reserve
If there was ever a way to restore peace and well-being to an overstressed mind and body, a retreat at Claudia Klein’s wonderful home on the West Coast must surely be it.
Situated near the beach in the Grotto Bay nature reserve, the house looks out over the Atlantic ocean and the wild and soul-stirring coastal landscape. You can walk for miles along the shell-strewn beaches, or through the fragrant fynbos; dream as you watch the sunset, or meditate by rocky coves where the waves roll over the stones like a high wind through mountain pines. And then come back, having set free at last something a little wild within yourself, to the warmth and sanctuary of Claudia’s magical home. And then the adventure really begins.
In every room, on nearly every surface, there is something fascinating and beautiful waiting to be discovered - prayer flags from Tibet, silks from India, cushions from Egypt, home-made drums and rain-sticks, treasures and trinkets and stories from all over the world. Vibrant purples, burgundys and rich earth tones mix beautifully with bright quirky tiles and mirrored mosaics, and the bathrooms and bedrooms in particular are an artistic and visual delight. A night spent under tented drapes in the fairy-lighted alcove bed will be one of the best sleeps of your life. Like Claudia herself, who created it all herself, this house is as warm and nurturing as it is interesting and eclectic. It’s a house so completely true to itself, so filled with personality and love of life, that it invites you too to kick off your shoes and all your inhibitions and be your own best self. This creative and inspiring space easily accommodates 4 (two main bedrooms with double bed each, plus a "Bohemian Cave"). Two bathrooms one with tub one with huge shower. Modern fully equipped kitchen. Large, expansive patio overlooking nature and the ocean. Beautiful for those relaxing evenings with a lazy barbecue. Minimum stay 3 nights
