Vast sea views and endless Fynbos; own this exclusivity
We’ve all considered owning a home by the sea for sublime weekend escapes and long lazy December holidays, or possibly contemplated a slower country lifestyle to retire to.
Your search is over, as we present you with the property jewel of the Overberg and her best kept secret: Romansbaai Beach and Fynbos Estate.
Set on the Danger Point Peninsula, the views are unobstructed, endless and breathtaking and the Estate offers extraordinarily large erf sizes. Hidden at the foot of this peninsula is a pristine north-facing beach which is exclusive and protected from the wind in summer. All this is situated on a 220-hectare estate with 24-hour access control.
The location of Romansbaai Beach and Fynbos Estate is perfect for a weekend breakaway as it is close enough to Cape Town to leave after work on Friday afternoon. The two-hour drive, with choices of routes through the rolling farms of Caledon and Stanford, or Hermanus, or take an awe-inspiring drive along the coast, will have you relaxing before you’ve even reached your destination.
The Western Cape is experiencing unprecedented growth, and popular areas such as Hermanus, Hemel & Aarde Valley and Vermont are bursting at the seams as the Overberg enjoys newly discovered interest from those seeking the genteel offerings of small towns of the Cape.
Come Live here
Families seeking a change in lifestyle will be pleasantly surprised to find superb primary and high schools in the area as well as school buses to Hermanus. The popular Curro Hermanus also offers its scholars a bus service from Gansbaai.
Safety too is paramount to us, and Romansbaai offers what no other estate can: views without walls. ClearVu fences run along the perimeter into the sea. The gate house, with power supplied by our own wind turbine, has 24-hour security and high-tech fingerprint technology for resident’s entry.
The architectural style of the Estate recognises the history of Danger Point Peninsula as a remote and wild place, and will result in the development of a truly appropriate architectural language unique to this very special section of coastline. The homes will not call attention to themselves but will let the Fynbos and natural features of the site prevail.
The Overberg region offers a host of activities both for those seeking a quiet breakaway from the city rush and for those seeking an adrenaline rush.
One can choose from shark cage diving, boating between the majestic Southern Right Whales during winter, or hiking through one of the Cape Floral regions world heritage sites, where 70% of the plants are endemic to this region.
And the fun doesn’t stop there. Head out for a drive along spectacular scenery of Protea varieties and settle in for an afternoon of wine tasting at Lomond Wine Estate in Elim, where you can sit back and enjoy a tasting of their award winning wines while you delight in local cheese and charcuterie at their stylish tasting room. Indulge in wholesome and hearty food and hospitality when visiting one of the many monthly farmers markets and immerse yourself in the very popular arts and craft route and rub shoulders with well-known writers, poets and artists.
Mountain bike and trail running tracks between ocean and Fynbos are plentiful in this region, and with events such as the Festival of the Geese in July and the Funky Fynbos Festival in September, there is always something for the whole family.
Select to play a round of golf at the Gansbaai Golf Club, the southernmost golf course in Africa, or, visit the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary, both which are adjacent to Romansbaai Beach and Fynbos Estate.
