About Kariza

Moving to the beautiful town of Yzerfontein was a lifestyle choice for its friendly owners, Izak and Karen Schräder. Staying right next to the Green Zone with its stunning full view of the waves rolling out on the beach below, you will immediately be drawn to nature and soothed by its tranquillity.

Strolling down to the beach takes five minutes and you will probably be surprised to see wild ostriches in the distance and be charmed by the friendliness of the locals likely to greet you on your way.

Kariza Studio apartment is safe, spacious, comfortable and well equipped with all the utilities you will need to enjoy your self-catering vacation. A big sliding door opens up onto the lawn and patio where you can enjoy a delicious chilled sun downer or braai your tasty fresh catch of the day.

For your convenience, your hosts will gladly attend to any specifics requests or needs you might have including the preparation of a beautifully prepared food basket should you opt for a relaxing picnic lunch.

      Well appointed and comfortable accommodation. The two dogs were great company on beach walks. Sat on the rocks watching whales breaching barely 400 meter offshore.
