According to those in the know, Langbaai Beach – reached by steps from Hermanus’ famous cliffpath – is one of the Cape’s prettiest beaches. Depending on the season the beach is a strip of sand or made up of tide-sculpted rocks; located between two rocky promontories, it is secluded and wind-free, with a protected break that is ideal for swimming and bodysurfing. A literal stone’s throw from this gem is Langbaai Thatch, a comfortable 4-bedroom villa that also offers easy access to Grotto Beach, Kammabaai Beach and Voelklip Beach, all within a five to 11 minute stroll from your front door.
A great option for an extended family (or two families who often enjoy travelling together), Langbaai Thatch sleeps a maximum of 5 adults and 5 children in four bedrooms. Of these only the main bedroom, furnished with a king-size bed, is en-suite, so is better suited for a paying host, or if costs are shared you may have to draw lots to decide who scores this. The second bedroom (furnished with a queen bed), third bedroom (furnished with twin beds) and fourth bedroom (furnished with a bunkbed and additional single bed) share a bathroom. There is underfloor heating in both bathrooms, as well as the main living area.
Lots of space for adults and children, with an open-plan downstairs living area and an upstairs lounge (which opens onto a delightful viewing deck – ideal for spotting whales!), both equipped with smart TVs and fireplaces. The spaces are capacious and cool, with a taupe and cream palette spotted with cerulean and navy blue highlights; the downstairs lounge is warmed in winter with a combustion wood-burning fireplace while the upstairs lounge has a gas fireplace.
The kitchen has everything you’ll need for easy entertaining, and there is a work station and wi-fi throughout to stay in touch. Aside from the proximity of Hermanus’ best beaches, the villa offers easy al fresco living, with a shaded dining table, and portable gas braai.
Twice-weekly housekeeping means you are assured your privacy yet enjoy support – on request the housekeeping hours can be increased, and any other services you require can be arranged. Secure outdoor parking for two cars within the complex, and an alarm system for peace of mind. Welcome to your best beach holiday ever!
