About Tanya Schilleman
Interacting with people, especially our guests gives me great satisfaction. Being blessed and in a position to live at the West Coast is a pleasure that I love to share with our guests and I find it a most joyous feeling when our guests check in and also experience what I see on a daily basis...the utter beauty of our West Coast nature, the white, sandy beaches, our marine life, our abundant birdlife, our unique sunrises over the sea, our pink sunsets... my happy place!!!
Tanya Schilleman purchased this Villa in 2018
Why Tanya Schilleman chose Saint Helena Bay
The ever changing "painting" of the ocean right in front, the unique birdlife, Cormorants flying low past the villa in the mornings, Oystercatchers enjoying a ray of sunlight on the rocks, dolphin & whale spotting right from the comfort of the lounge, verandah or sundeck, all to be enjoyed from the villa without having to leave the premises... The protected bay where you can swim, SUP, kayak and snorkel... The clean, white sand of the beach...
What makes this Villa unique
Martinique BeachVilla is located approx. 30m from the ocean, with a boardwalk leading directly to the beach. One is surrounded by nature and nature scenes, the peace that you will experience when you arrive here for the first time, a tranquil space, the calm waters right in front of the villa, with interesting rock pools to explore and a lovely protected bay where you can swim or kayak and sometimes have a pod of dolphins joining too! The villa offers peace and tranquility, but is still situated centrally in St Helena Bay in a gated estate, so you do not have to travel far to buy fresh bread or croissants from the bakery, however back at the villa you are once again confronted with nature and this to me is the best of two worlds, being able to travel approx. 1km to the nearest shops and yet once you are back at the villa you have no idea of city life or road noise. Martinique BeachVilla is north facing toward the ocean, with never-ending ocean views, a warm home in winter and cool in summer.

St Helena Bay is the only place in the West Coast where the sun rises over the sea, which is a very important motivation to come and reside at Martinique BeachVilla. Our beachfront villa offers spectacular views over the ocean, thus an ideal address for whale and bird watching as well as early morning beach walks, swim, paddle, or exploring of the many interesting rock pools, all located right in front of the villa.
St Helena Bay is home to the fishing industry and has the largest concentration of fishing factories providing more than 50% of the fish produced in SA on a yearly basis.
Catch a glimpse of the "snoek" boats going out to sea in the early hours of the morning and returning later in the day filled with snoek. Snoek season... a most exciting time of the year, with snoek (fish) found only off the african coast and a local delicacy, snoek samoosas, snoek soup, quiche... snoek very much part of the South African cuisine.
With Sandy Point Harbour a "stones' throw" away from Martinique BeachVilla, walking along the beach to the harbour when the snoek boats come in, make it easy and adds to an interesting stay when you as guest can buy your own, fresh snoek directly from the fishermen at the harbour.
Martinique BeachVilla is situated in the gated estate, Sandy Point Beach Estate in St Helena Bay, a very central location to the centre of St Helena Bay as well as numerous other West Coast towns to visit from here.
