The house encourages outdoor living as all living area doors slide open fully to catch the most beautiful view of the sea.

Outside there is a large patio with a covered dining area, built in braai (barbecue grill), and sun loungers. The patio leads to a refreshing solar heated infinity pool.

We found Heaven on Earth... for sure!!! Thee most beautiful location, total relaxation in luxury. Best kept secret in St Francis. Truly a special place... those that have been lucky enough to experience Bonavanti will know that they are one of the lucky ones. Excellent service and once cannot ask for a better location. Best sundowners on that deck EVA!!!
