Leisure Bay is a get away with tranquility and nature's treasures and is a bird lover's paradise. Nearby golf courses also add to the golfing paradise. Gwelo offers an opportunity to live with nature under the indigenous fig tree which brings paradise flycatchers, Namaqua doves and Knysna louries to your doorstep with a backdrop of indigenous sand dunes and pristine beaches.

Some of the family can enjoy tranquility while others seek the golfing circuit nearby (10 min) or the Wild Coast Sun Casino (15 min). Shelley Beach (20min) offers shopping and exciting deep-sea adventures

The local coastal buck, the blue duiker (named in Zulu, iPhiti), visit the garden on quiet days. The coolness of the house and garden are an unusual attraction to a beach cottage. When the weather is windy this garden is cool and snugly protected behind the sand dune, but when the weather is glorious the beach offers swimming (with life guards during holidays), rock pools and wonderful walks along the dunes with excellent fishing off the rocks. Kidd's Beach is across the road from the house with Peter Pan Beach offering a protected area for young children to play and swim. There is no sea view from the house.

The privately-owned family holiday home has been recently renovated and is fully equipped for comfortable accommodation for 10. It is best suited for 2 families sharing as 2 bedrooms have queen sized beds and en suite bathroom / shower. 2 Beds are separate from the house so are suitable for teenagers or adults and one room has 4 beds as a children’s room.
