The ultimate luxury beach getaway. The Aloe House (sleeps 8) is a beautiful home, designed for relaxation and fun. The interior is effortlessly elegant and light. Enjoy spectacular sea views with your champagne breakfast and then stroll down to the beach (300 meters) for a swim.
One of the special features of The Aloe House is the fantastic outdoor entertainment space. It includes a portable gas braai, food "prep" area, fridge, 8-seater table and swimming pool, surrounded by a lush tropical garden. The concept of great entertainment is also reflected indoors. The dining room and lounge lead on to a large viewing deck and the open plan kitchen allows you to be a "celebrity chef" while gazing at the horizon.
Upstairs is the main bedroom (en-suite) which is big enough to host a private tea party. It has its own balcony and ocean views from every corner, including the large bathroom.
Downstairs, the second bedroom is also en-suite with a queen size bed. There are two single beds in the third bedroom. The fourth bedroom has a double bed. Right next door is a large bathroom (with toilet and bath) as well as a separate guest toilet.
The Aloe House is completely secure with perimeter fencing (electrified), automated gate and a full alarm system linked to a security company. The housekeeper lives on the property and will service the house daily.
Don't miss the perfect beach holiday place!
Too much work, and no vacation,
Deserves at least a small libation.
So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses,
Work's the curse of the drinking classes.
