Key features: A glorious beachfront hideaway neighbouring Robberg Nature Reserve
Along the south-eastern coast of South Africa, where the Indian Ocean meets the shore lies a seemingly timeless region of mountains and ragged coast line called Robberg. Nestled close to the neighbouring nature reserve sits a magnificent beachfront home – Camp Robberg – with expansive glass windows overlooking the blue of the sea and a short meander along the boardwalk to the soft sands.
Architect Paul Oosthuizen’s vision was for the house to become an integral part of the surrounding natural fynbos. He achieved his goal – with its softly rounded lines and natural palette of milkwood, glass and raw concrete, Camp Robberg blends into the fynbos-covered dunes rather than imposing itself on its surroundings.
Summer time and the living is easy. Glass doors open to create free flow between the interior and the great outdoors. There are plenty of spaces in this gorgeous home beach and nature reserve from pretty much every room. The bedrooms here are large and cool. After a morning on the beach with a deli -laden picnic basket and cold beers, retreat to your room with a book and allow the holiday mood to lull you into a restorative siesta.
Spend your days swimming, body-surfing and kayaking with dolphins or take a walk to spy the local birdlife and fynbos. Come nightfall, watch the moon steadily rise above the tide or take a night dip in the pool beneath a throng of stars. Camp Robberg is a space for quiet rejuvenation, shared memories and relaxed respite from the rest of the world.
