Die Dolfyntjie is an affordable self-catering apartment situated in Hartenbos Heuwels and is conveniently situated near major access ways and the N2. Hartenbos Heuwels is a quiet and peaceful area on the picturesque Garden Route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The property is approximately 2.2 km from the main beach and not a beachfront property.

The apartment can accommodate up to 2 persons. It has 1 carpeted bedroom with a double bed, wall-to-wall cupboards and a built-in vanity. There is a sleeper couch in the open-plan living area. There are ceiling fans in the living area as well as in the bedroom.

The living area also features a flat-screen TV with SABC 1, 2, 3 and eTV as well as an Easy View package. Playing cards and dominoes are available.

There is an open-plan kitchen that is fully equipped with a 2-plate stove, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, table and benches. Ample cutlery, crockery and cutting boards as well as an electric whisk and other kitchen appliances for 3 guests, are available.

The apartment has one bathroom that is fitted with a shower, toilet and basin with mirror above and cupboard beneath. Please note that towels and are not provided.

The unit has a private entrance, separate from the main house, which is occupied by the owner. Safe off-street parking is also provided. A lock-up garage is available at R10 per day upon request.

An outside sink to be used for rinsing sand from bathing suits, as well as a washing line, is available outside. Due to the drought, we ask that water is used sparingly. Water restrictions are already in effect from November 2019. An outdoor braai is available.

There are many activities for the whole family including swimming in the sea. The waterfront boasts a heated swimming pool, outdoor swimming pool, putt putt and restaurants. Deep-sea fishing, boat trips or shark-cage diving operates from Mossel Bay's harbour.

Other activities in the area include visits to several game farms, scenic drives, a visit to Redberry Farm near George and various golf courses are nearby. Drive to Wilderness for a visit to the Map of Africa, the best-kept secret of the Garden Route. During December, guests can book activities such as quad bike rides, paintball, kayaking, paragliding tandem flights. Attempt The Dragon, the longest dune in SA for sandboarding. The Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn is also a firm favourite with visitors to the area.
