Make a holiday rental property or on the Garden Route, Cape Town your home away from home

The Garden Route has some of the most breath-taking coastal scenery of the Western Cape of South Africa. Winding along the coast for some 200km through towns like Witsand, Wilderness and Sedgefield, and ending up among the huge trees of the Tstisikamma Forest, a natural wonder in itself, a Garden Route tour guarantees to inspire and amaze.

Things to do on holiday on the Garden Route, Cape Town

There are some incredibly picturesque bays and beaches all along the Garden Route, tours of which would take many, many months. However, by taking a holiday rental on the Garden Route, you can discover some of the finest, least known beaches, surrounded by mountainous peaks, the vivid colours of flowers, soaring trees and gleaming lakes. The lakes, rivers and bays are ideal for swimming, fishing and pottering around in a boat. There is nothing more poignant than watching the sky turn orange as the sun sets whilst you fish the banks of one of the many rivers in the area, absorbing the atmosphere and gazing over some of the most impressive scenery you are likely to see for many years to come. There are also some fantastic scuba diving tours of the Garden Route, Cape Town, safaris of the underwater world which lies just feet from the coastal road. Whales watching and dolphin spotting is very easy on the Garden Route, and you can often spot dolphins frolicking in the shallows from the balcony of a Garden Route beach house.

Accommodation on the Garden Route, South Africa, is a haven for walkers and hikers too. The forests, mountains and coastal plateaus are a maze of winding trails leading visitors to some of the best viewpoints, wildest terrains and most interesting historical sites you can find on a Garden Route tour. The Tsitsikamma National Park is among South Africa’s finest, encompassing areas of forest, ocean, land and water, as well as the dramatic gorges of the Klein Karoo. This is one of the best places to take a Garden Route safari in South Africa. The Cango Caves, which can be found just outside the town of Oudtshoorn, are well worth investigating from any self catering Garden Route holiday home.

Places to stay on holiday on the Garden Route, Cape Town

There are many charming towns you will discover on a Garden Route tour, from Mossel Bay to George, Wilderness to Knysna, but for me, Plettenburg Bay stands out. It is one of the most fashionable spots on the Garden Route, largely due to the huge number of attractions which surround the town. Whales can often be seen off the shores of Plattenburg Bay, and the beaches are stunning. There are also plenty of trails for both hiking and mountain biking, and for the most adventurous, there is a fantastic sky diving centre here too!

Weather on the Garden Route, Cape Town

Coming from the UK, temperatures along the Garden Route will appear blissfully warm, even during the coldest days. During the summer months, temperatures are high, averaging around 27˚C for the whole month, with daily peaks of around the mid 30’s.

Travel to the Garden Route, Cape Town

Every Garden Route tour starts with a flight to Cape Town International Airport (CPT). Flights can last up to 11 hours from the UK, but as soon as you head out towards the Garden Route, you will know that the journey was worth it, many times over.

The rooms are great and everything was very neat. The location is also amazing with breathtaking views that you cannot get tired off. We enjoyed that the home completely functions off the grid with solar panels, a backup generator and a water-harvesting system. ” Christelle

Our stay was too short and we did not want to leave. The situation and the layout of the house are just incredible a few steps down to the stunning 4.5 kms Robberg beach (to us by far the nicest beach in Plett) and with views of the water, the beach and the Robberg Nature Reserve from pretty much every room of the house. The design is clean and sleek and remarkably thought through but equally warm and welcoming - a true family home with games and TV rooms, a games table overlooking the water, large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and lovely white cotton linen sheets and towels, a beautiful kitchen, back kitchen and cold room. The house happily accommodates two families. The property is well looked after and spotless. Vivian the charming housekeeper came everyday and kept everything impeccable - it was like being in a hotel. As mentioned, the house is very well located right on the beach but only 7/10 mins to the centre of the lovely town of Plett (full of nice restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques) and 5 mins from Plett airport. We are now back in Johannesburg but we cannot wait to go back there. Thank you to the owners Adrienne and Michael for such an special Easter break.
