About Ithaca

This contemporary cottage is tucked away in a large natural fynbos garden, 100m from the rocky shore, with beautiful views. It is in a sheltered position and is suitable for a couple. It is architect designed with a distinct 'inside-outside', feel. It comprises a large open-plan lounge/dining area, a lovely sun room/study and one spacious bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with a shower. A seaward-facing patio runs the length of the house and is accessed from all the rooms by generous sliding doors. The view from a smaller north-facing patio and herb garden is dominated by the magnificent cliff

Such a beautifull house. Loved the easy living the house offerd. Opening all the glass doors, you feel so close to nature. The natural surroundings takes your breath away. From the wild garden to the well thought out interiors of the home, this house ticked all the boxes for a relaxing getaway.
