Rocky Pools is a stunning seaside home located right on the waters edge of the Atlantic Ocean. As the name suggests, Rocky Pools is protected from the ocean by a buffer of jagged rock pools and coastal fynbos vegetation. A short stroll to the left leads to Penguin Point and its population of quirky birds, while an amble to the right lands you on Betty’s long moody beach.
The prime setting is enhanced with a shady verandah equipped with lime-washed furniture, and a sheltered barbecue area built around the local rock. Stepping through the wide glass sliding doors, the interior is spotless and the fittings and fabrics tastefully co-ordinated. Persian rugs, down lighting, DStv and a dishwasher lend a definite luxurious touch.
The main bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and wide ocean views from their queen-size beds, while the open-plan living area is spacious and conducive to a very sociable weekend, combining a lime-washed country kitchen, a long dining table and comfy couches set around a massive hearth.
Activities in the area include the Harold Porter Botanical Garden with its walking trails and tea garden, Stony Point penguin colony, a sure-fire winner with children, and the Kogelberg Nature Reserve offering a number of hiking trails and incorporating both coastline and mountain terrain. In addition, the Palmiet River and lagoon lie at the heart of the Kleinmond Coastal Reserve and are a good site for swimming and canoeing.
