About Sanderling at Grotto Bay

Along the wild and windswept coast, in a private nature reserve, Sanderling at Grotto Bay is situated a mere 300 meters from the shore in the quiet village of Grotto Bay.

This beach house comfortably sleeps maximum six guests (this includes children) or a small family and is well equipped. The house offers three double bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen, a lounge with television and a dining room. Wifi and DSTV are complimentary as well as a small library of DVDs and reading books. The interior of the house is light with a calm and tranquil atmosphere, while the kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, a microwave, a dishwasher, a gas hob, an electric oven, a toaster, a kettle, as well as cutlery and crockery.

Outside on the deck there is a swimming pool and a weber braai,a built in braai, an open outside shower, where you can gaze out undisturbed at the kilometres of untouched coastline.

The beauty of this bay is immediately obvious and features a lonely beach house standing on the beach overlooking the beach. Darling with its accessible wine estates and the charming village of Philadelphia are a short drive away. Admittedly we can ensure this is the escape you are after.

We regret no pets are allowed at the facility

Beach: There are two beaches, one rocky beach and one sandy beach a few minites walk away. Relax on the deck and take in beautiful views across the fynbos to the sea

Golf: The nearest golf course is in Darling, approximately half an hour drive away.

Family friendly: The property is fully enclosed with a remote gate making it very safe for children. The pool is covered with a safety net. The stairs going up to the loft can be blocked off with a child safety gate

Romantic: A beautiful romantic getaway offering complete privacy. Relax on the deck gazing over the sea. Dip in the pool to cool you down during the hot summers. Sip on your cocktails whilst watching the most amazing sunsets the West Coast has to offer.

      My family was recently at 176 Sanderling Close and it was amazing. The house is beautiful and has such a warmness about it. My kids were quite sad to leave. Thank you so much and we will definitely go back.
