Dit het met die intrapslag gevoel soos vakansie!

Ons het so lekker gebly, na 'n lang dag op die pad was dit net wat ons nodig gehad het. Ons is eintlik spyt ons het nie langer gebly by die akkommodasie nie!

Gerieflik, lekker rustig en net wat 'n mens nodig het om te ontspan groot plus punt is dat honde welkom is.

Lekker wegbreekplek om te ontspan en net rustig te wees, weg van die besige bestemmings wat soms net te besig is as jy regtig wil ontspan. En ook dat honde welkom is maak dit baie meer gerieflik vir ons mense wat hulle graag wil saam neem.

Home from home with basic decor, a distant sea view and all amenities.

A chilled, no frills venue with a fire-pit, DStv and indoor braai, just make sure you bring some drinking water and order ice ahead of time as water and ice can be in short supply in Hondelkipbaai we discovered...but Petro did manage to sort us out with copious amounts of ice in the end.

Dit was wonderlik.

Die huis lê effens eenkant, maar steeds deel van hierdie stil Weskusdorpie. As jy op die dek 'n glasie wyn geniet, kyk jy uit op die see, 'n skeepswrak wat effens regs lê en verder regs is daar 'n vuurtoring. Ons gaan kuier enige tyd weer en as ons kon sou ons sommer die huis koop!

This review is being shown in its original language.

Wonderful.

The house is somewhat away from town, yet still part of this quiet West Coast town. If you enjoy a glass of wine on the deck you overlook the ocean, 'n shipwreck somewhat to the right and further to your right is a lighthouse. We would love to go there again and if we could we would buy the house!

My buitelandse besoeker en ek het Hondeklipbaai as basis gebruik vir besoeke aan die Namakwa Nasionale Park met die doel om vetplante in die park te besigtig. Die huis is basies, maar volledig toegerus en skoon. Die vetplant-diversiteit is verstommend!
