Rent a luxury villa in the Overberg

For every great family holiday or reunion you’ve had, you’ve probably had three bad ones. Apart from Creepy Uncle Andy’s inappropriate jokes, this can most often boil down to three factors: location, location, location.

Reasons why renting Whale Huys for your next holiday or reunion is a really good idea.

  1. This view.

  1. The weak Rand. Cape Town International is only two hours from Whale Huys, and there are loads of direct flights from the UK to Cape Town. And the prices are all in Rands, so even if you’re local, it’s affordable.
  1. Every room offers complete privacy. We get that you love your family, but there’s nothing like a bit of space from them now and again too. And every bedroom opens onto its own sea front balcony.

  1. Whale Huys’ proximity to Stanford and Gansbaai means that on days that you want to get out and explore a bit, there is an abundance of activities for you to do: shark cage diving, whale watching, hiking, horse riding, and eating. There is a cluster of boutique restaurants and coffee shops in Stanford as well as nearby wine farms and picnic spots.
  1. Winter in the Overberg is beautiful. Days can be sunny, clear and wind-free; nights are cool, cosy and call for wine and a log fire. It’s also when the whales visit the coastline.
