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 house is absolutely stunning with everything you could possible need, masses of space with area's to socialise and an indoor and outdoor braai! The kitchen was very well equipped allowing for self catering and the interior is contemporary and finished to an exceptionally high standard. The house is located by the Keurboomsrivier in a very safe gated community and is within walking distance to the beach and only 5 minutes away from the main town by car! The most perfect location. As well as this there are many places to visit nearby such as monkey world, the cheetah sanctuary, the Knysna elephant park and much more. I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay in the area, you definitely won't regret it!

Spent four days there with my family and was blown away by this house. It was beautiful, spacious, luxurious, but still had that comfortable homely feel. I would recommend anyone to go.
