Stay at Cape Recife Lighthouse Villa: Unique Self-Catering Escape

Ever dreamed of being a castaway on a remote stretch of coastline, surrounded by ocean, birdsong and beauty – with no unwanted human disturbance? The elemental excitement of rhythmically crashing waves on rocks below, glorious sunrises above the sea’s horizon and golden evenings as night gently falls behind the vegetated dunes.

Imagine such a place, within easy reach of a regional airport or by car, offering the freedom to prepare your own meals and set your own pace, with a personal butler / chef and guide discreetly waiting to do your bidding.

Our elegant, luxuriously appointed eyrie perched above the rocks beneath a stately lighthouse offers this exclusive experience for up to four people sharing the two-bedroomed Cape Recife Villa within the eponymous Nature Reserve on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth/ Gqeberha, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Coastal and dune hikes, prolific birdwatching, botanical biodiversity, romance and adventure come standard in this unique and unforgettable escape!
