About On the Beach

Home in the seaside village of Melkbosstrand, this quaint accommodation is right on the beach and well-acquainted neighbours with the reaping waves of the Atlantic Ocean that allows for hours of beach strolling, surfing and remarkable sunsets. We have our own water supply and also an Ozone therapy room at a fee, should you like to spoil yourself!

A mere 35 kilometres out of Cape Town, the accommodation offers two guests or a couple a relaxing retreat. The unit is well equipped with facilities that will make you stay all that more comfortable and the quiet surrounding area will set a peaceful ambiance. Though the unit is part of the main house, it hosts a separate entrance and a private parking area.

The house is literally on the beachfront and enjoys panoramic sea views of Robben Island, Table Mountain and her surrounding bay. The Old Skip Caravan Park is right opposite the On the Beach accommodation, and if the beach does not suit, their refreshing pool is available.

Spa: We have ozone therapy treatments available on the premises. No water problems .Own well point

      The best thing about this accommodation is you walk a few steps onto the beach. What a pleasure! Accommodation is very comfortable, however could be more private.
