About On The Rocks

On The Rocks is located on the East London east coast, in a small village called Glengariff, approximately 25 km outside the city. The area is filled with a number of resorts, including a renowned private game reserve called Inkwenkezi. Abundant wildlife, adventure and leisure activities are on offer within a 15 km radius. The area offers excellent sea and estuary fishing. Whale and dolphin sightings are common and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your holiday home. On the Rocks is situated in between three incredible, unspoilt beaches with excellent surfing spots; the famous Queensberry Bay and Yellowsands breaks are only a 1.5km beautiful walk along the beach and Glengarriff beach break is less than 400m from your front door!

On The Rocks is a newly built home in a modern contemporary style. The house is uniquely positioned less than 40 m from the high water mark and 400 m from a stunning, safe swimming beach and river, providing an intimate ocean living experience. The house is luxuriously appointed with five bedrooms displaying awesome Indian Ocean views. A sheltered courtyard entertainment area offers a swimming pool with an ocean view through the open-plan, glass encased lounges, dining room and kitchen spaces. Satellite TV, surround sound entertainment and wireless Internet are available for the times between beach visits.

Beach: You can't get closer to the sea. The house is 40 metres from the rocks with beautiful swimming beaches and rivers on either side of it.

A truly magnificent five star home with breathtaking views of the ocean and beaches right at your door step. Absolute comfort and all amenities you could want. Total peace of mind and tranquility made it a perfect holiday for us. Will definitely plan to do this again in the future.

Just a quick note to thank you so much for the opportunity to rent your home for the holidays and providing us with a well-deserved break to relax and distress from our hectic lives in Joburg. You have a lovely home situated in a beautiful part of the country which allowed us to spend time together as a family but still have space to have our private time too.Neliswa was a superstar and we really enjoyed her company and her assistance was much appreciated. Lisa was also great and it was comforting to know she was close should we need some advice or info.We would like to book the same dates...
