Great house in a great position right on the beach. Perfect base from which to visit the wider area. And, the owners were a pleasure to deal with.
Duifieklip is a place that you keep going back to. A place where you can breath deep and start relaxing the second you step onto the property. The house leaves absolutely nothing wanting, in fact it is better equipped than any other self catering place I have ever visited. The owner always leaves delicious tidbits in the fridge such as olives and you are invited to help yourself. Living areas are very spacious and the open plan kitchen flows onto the outside porch with built-in braai and dining room/living room. Such a nice space for everybody to be together, yet not feel crowded. The bedrooms all have their own en-suite bathrooms and linen is fresh and clean. The main bedroom has the most beautiful scene you will ever wake up to in the West Coast. Birds chirping, the sea right in front of you and in the distance a fishing boat going out for the day's catch. There is also an upstairs living room with full DSTV, comfortable couches to sink into and a view to die for. We have had extended stays in this house, and I can honestly say that it feels like a second home (only with a better view!) to us.
What a lovely beach house! Closer to the beach you cannot get. With every possible amenity you may need. For bird lovers the variety of species in the region is world renowned. What a special moment when we saw our first red-necked phalarope at the salt pans near Velddrif. Duifieklip is really a special place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Duifieklip. Lots to see and do in the area. We were fortunate to see beautiful flowers around Yzerfontein. We also did a day trip to thr West Coast national park and another day trip to Paternoster. Make sure you get fish and chips at the St Helena harbour. The house was squeaky clean, kitchen is very well equiped and the beds comfortable with huge living space. It was nice to just stay at home also and enjoy the peacefulness an lovely views. A supermarket is nearby for grocery shopping. We certainly hope to visit again.
After a relatively short drive from cape town you arrive at St Helena Bay, and Duifieklip is situated in the area of Hannesbaai. Right on the water, you have only the beautiful local plants garden in front of you. From the deck the blue water beckons you to go for a jog next to the beach or go out on the water with a canoe.
The house is fully equipped with various rooms that either wake you up with morning light or allows you to sleep in. Cool in the summer and cosy in the winter - I'm eager to go back!
