About our home

Our stunning beach front vacation home was beautifully renovated in 2007.

The main house has 4 en-suite bedrooms and is situated on the beach, 20 m from the bay. The additional cottage sleeps another 2-4 people, main en-suite.

The house is fully equipped.
Could be serviced upon request at R500/ day.
R500 once off cleaning fee to be left in cash with the house keys on departure.

There are many water activities to choose from such as water paddling, stand-up paddling, canoeing, kite surfing. The water temperature is between 19 and 23 degrees Celsius in the summer (which is very warm for the Western Cape beaches. This is due to the house being on the bay).

The house is perfect for family holidays and is 90 minutes from Cape Town - Lonely Planet rated Cape Town as the second best city in the World in 2017.

Although we are new to Home Swap, we have been on for more than 10 years, and have completed more than 20 home exchanges.

Below are some of the reviews of our home.

Mareike & Clemens from Berlin, Germany
Dear Sarie, we had a great time in the Saldanha Bay Yacht House. The house offers the charme of a typical beach house. Due to its location right at the beach, we had the chance to quickly jump in the ocean and take jogging runs right at the beach. Thanks for having us and see you soon in Berlin! Best, Mareike, Kira & Clemens

Gideon and Christina from Cape Town, South Africa
Saldanha Bay Yacht House was extremely well located with a wonderful view of the bay of Saldanha. We were very impressed with all the facilities, attention to detail, ability and willingness of Sarie to accommodate our requests. She responded promptly and with complete competence on each occasion. It is a large house with plenty of space but offers privacy, if you want it, and each room boasts its own bathroom. Thank you Sarie, we really enjoyed our stay and the lovely ambience of the personal touches of your beautifully decorated home! We can recommend a stay at Sarie's place with complete confidence!

Huenu & Dave from Bakoven, Cape Town, South Africa
We had a wonderful stay at Sarie's house. It's right on the beach and it's got a wonderful flow. It feels very "beachy" and it's a great space for a small or large family to spend quality time together. It's also very well equipped with anything you may want - it's not missing a thing. We really recommend it.

Joy from Cape Town, South Africa
We loved the place. It was so close to the beach and we had a lovely time Kayaking with the neighbors Kayaks.
Everything is very neat and clean and very comfortable with every room having its own bathroom. The house is also very pretty decorated.
We enjoyed visiting little towns in the area
We will definitely recommend this place
