About Eddy Scheffer
I am a Dutch engineer, retired. In 1996 South Africa came in me and never left again.
Soon I started up business in Cape Town and explored the coastal region to find the perfect spot for building a holiday home on a European quality level.
Eddy Scheffer purchased this villa in 1997
Why Eddy Scheffer chose Gansbaai
When a house is on the seaside, there should be nothing between the house and the sea: no traffic, no road, not even a walkway, just nature.
Also, the privacy should be perfect: no views from the outside into the house or onto the deck and pool ares.
Finally, one must be able to choose a place in the shade or in the sun any time of the day.
That was the challenge for the architect, Gie Wollaert, and he succeeded.
What makes this villa unique
During whale season (june-november) the whales and their babies will greet you almost daily. My guarantee: You will receive a 100% refund in case you would not see the whales right in front of the villa during your stay!
