As you enter The Anchorage's large garden you are greeted by a majestic oak tree. It instantly puts you into holiday mode. The spacious 3 bed roomed home is designed for holiday living. The open plan living area, dining room and kitchen is large, light and air conditioned with mountain views.
The heated swimming pool is fenced. The garden has a beautiful mountain stream - a place to escape for quiet or catch tadpoles.
Its in walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants and MyCiti buses.
The Anchorage was renovated a few years ago with holidays in mind. It is a double storied home. There is an easy flight of stairs up to the front door. We rent out the top portion of the house with the living area, kitchen and bedrooms.
The open plan living area has a wonderful feeling of light with windows along the whole front of the house with views looking into the garden and up to the mountains. It has 2 seating areas, a dining area and kitchen. Its air conditioned to keep cool in summer.
The pantry off the kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine. The pantry is stocked with condiments, olive oil, sugar, flour, herbs and spices. Things that one needs during a self catering holiday.
There are 3 bedrooms. The first has a double bed with an ensuite bathroom (bath and shower). The second bedroom has 2 single beds - there is space for a camp cot in the room if needed. The 3rd bedroom has a double bed. There is a 2nd bathroom with a shower and separate toilet. A camp cot is available for babies and toddlers.
When you arrive at The Anchorage you are greeted by a huge old oak tree. On the other side of the house is the swimming pool with easy access from the house. Its fenced off so you are able to keep children out of the pool area. A charcoal weber barbeque is available to braai (South African barbeque).
And then alongside the garden is the magical mountain stream. There are steps that take you to a place in nature that makes you forget that you are in suburbia. Little girls discover fairies and boys (and girls too) can catch tadpoles. Or you may just simply want to listen to sound of the water flowing and relax.
Downstairs (which is not accessible to guests) Robyn runs a healing practice and teaches kundalini yoga. Inner Peace Healing is closed during guests stays. By prior arrangement you are welcome to book healing sessions.
Guests have access to the top floor of The Anchorage, the swimming pool, garden and river.
Downstairs I run a healing practice (Inner Peace Healing) and have a yoga studio where I teach kundalini yoga. Inner Peace Healing is closed when we have guests staying in the house. I'm very happy to offer healing treatments to guests. Please let me know before you arrive if you want to book a session. (URL HIDDEN)
I'll be there to meet you when you arrive. We live next door - the gardens are connected. So we are literally just up the garden path.
Many guests are concerned about crime in South Africa. The Anchorage does have an alarm and its possible to turn on outside beams while inside the house.
There is off street parking.
We live next door and do not have a concern about safety.
- Check in and out can be flexible to suit your travel arrangements by prior arrangement
- Pets are welcome. We have a cat and there are semi tame guinea fowls and geese who live in the garden. So if you bring your dog it must be cat friendly and may not chase the birds. The property is not fully fenced - it is open to the river area. It is secure to the road.
- You are welcome to entertain family and friends - there is additional cutlery and crockery to allow for that. No wild parties please.
- There is a weber braai (barbeque). Please do not bring it into the pool area or use it on the wooden balcony.
My favourite travel destination is the bush. I love being in the stillness of nature.
We live next door to The Anchorage - the property on airbnb. We bought the house because we love the river (mountain stream) that runs along side the 2 homes.
Sitting beside the river one is immersed in nature - peace descends with the sound of the flowing water.
When I travel and stay in self catering accommodation I dislike opening empty pantry cupboards. For this reason I've stocked the pantry with the basics (olive oil, herbs etc) - so that should you feel inclined to cook you don't have to buy everything.
I run a healing practice "Inner Peace Healing" and teach kundalini yoga in the downstairs portion of The Anchorage. That is the reason the house is only available over weekends outside of the holiday season. If you come to stay I am happy to offer guests treatments.
I need a creative outlet - at the moment it is mosaics - so you'll notice that spotted round the garden. My other passion is photography.
