Perfect Hideaways: Villa Kersbos

With ocean views and a pristine layout that oozes relaxed living, Villa Kersbos lies just beyond the quiet little dorpie of Velddrif, no more than two hours from Cape Town.

Here, on the exquisite, untouched stretch of shoreline known as Dwarskersbos, you can take in the fresh sea air along with the sight of rolling sand dunes and indigenous coastal scrub. A place so lovely and remote, only the gulls and Cape Cormorants nosey over your sunbathing. Sitting directly on the beach, at the end of a lane that’s cushioned into the green belt alongside a tiny cluster of newly-built, secure beach bungalows, Villa Kersbos opens itself out to nothing but nature.

Set on two levels of contemporary beach house living, with views of the ocean occupying every room, this simple and serene hideaway answers to the call for an escape to the wilds of the West Coast. Not that you’re likely to encounter anything more ferocious than the resident tortoise. But it’s the stillness and calm that reminds you how far you are from the city.

Come experience four amazingly comfortable ensuite bedrooms – all decked out with luxury percale linen and fine furnishings in neutral tones and textures. Furthermore, you’ll find large and light open-plan living, dining and entertaining areas, with indoor and outdoor fireplaces. A long verandah and fabulous Balau timber courtyard boasts a gloriious swimming pool and Kol Kol wood-fired hot tub. And let’s not forget about the well-appointed  ‘pyjama room’ – where the kids can hang out, playing games. This property is perfect for a family yearning an escape to nature.

Here the waves are wonderful for swimming and surfing, the walks are endless, the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular, and the time goes by nice and slowly. Days will be spent in the surf, on the sand, beside the pool, or beneath the giant olive tree in the courtyard. Drift off with the chapters of a cherished novel or take a relaxing swim.

Evenings will be spent around the fire, stargazing and listening to the sounds of the waves curling over and over again, as the family banter picks up from where it was left off the night before. It’s all you envisaged about a trip up the West Coast.

Dwarskersbos is unlike any of the other West Coast towns – lovely as they are – it is a lot more remote and slightly off the beaten track, which makes it alluring to those who wish to discover something new (and less touristy).

The beautiful views of the ocean are undoubtedly a sell-point! The eternal stretch of beach and the landscape around the property can be enjoyed from every room of the house.


Indoors or out, this home is pure bliss – a perfect hideaway to have a refreshing break from the bustle of everyday life. Watch the cargo ships sail out beyond the horizon in the day and watch their lights twinkling on the ocean at night.

With so much to discover, we know you’ll be back for more. Book Villa Kersbos now at Perfect Hideaways, and while you’re on their website, check out their amazing selection of quality accommodation and hidden gems throughout the country.
