“ON GOLDEN POND” is our own personal beach cottage nestled into the north-east facing slope of the Bay of Ponta do Ouro (Point of Gold in Portuguese) and whilst sipping on that first cup of coffee admiring the early morning sunrise, or that chilled G&T watching the Kiteboarders take to the sky across the beautiful bay, you will know that you have arrived in our little piece of paradise.
Since we watched that first pole of our unit being sunk into the lush coastal vegetation, we knew immediately that this cottage was destined to supply our family with many years of unforgettable and easily accessible holidays for decades to come and have now decided to share our home with other like-minded people to enjoy the same experience that we still relish every time we cross that border.
“ON GOLDEN POND” is a self-catering cottage with sea views over the glistening and crystal clear swimming waters of the Bay of Ponta do Ouro. Access to the beach is via a short boardwalk – in high season it is actually recommended to walk around Ponta due to the increased influx of holidaymakers and lack of parking.
Our unit is double storey, with a fully self-sufficient flatlet downstairs. The flatlet comprises two * single beds or one king-size bed (our maid will make the beds up as per your request). There is a small kitchenette and fridge for that morning cuppa, as well as a small bathroom comprising toilet, basin and shower. All bath towels are supplied.
Upstairs comprises two bedrooms, the main sea-facing bedroom has a double bed, built-in safe and sufficient built-in cupboards.
The second bedroom comprises two * single beds or one king-size bed depending on your choice (our maid will make the beds up as per your request) as well as built-in cupboards.
Please note that all bedrooms are fully airconditioned – a must in Summer!!
Upstairs has one bathroom with toilet, basin and shower. All bath towels are provided.
The fully fitted kitchen has all the necessary equipment as well as an ice machine.
Our upstairs veranda is where you’ll likely spend most of your time, nestled on the couches overlooking the bay. A dining table and chairs is also provided on the upper deck along with a gas Weber braai.
Our stunning downstairs deck has a private plunge pool, pool loungers, umbrella, as well as a built-in brick braai with braai grid.
We also have a downstairs storeroom for your fishing/beach equipment – the storeroom also has an additional fridge/freezer for those extra beverages!.
