The old ‘VILLA RESIDENT” was originally built in 1879. At the time it was the only house on
the stretch of beach. As now, it was already then a beautiful, elegant villa that absolutely
radiates charm and character.

This beautiful old villa was divided into 2 separate dwellings and completely renovated in line with the rules of the Heritage Council in 2008 and it is now standing proud having had the face lift together with a few extensions.

DRIFTWOOD BEACH VILLA therefore offers elegant accommodation, tailor made to suit
the needs of our guests: we offer luxury accommodation in 3 beautiful suites. There is also the option of renting the entire villa, or a portion thereof on a self catering basis.

The location of the Villa is what makes this place so
absolutely unique…..it is built on the
beach with direct access.

The 150 year old Milkwood tree gives the deck that total feeling of privacy and guests can
relax on the deck whilst watching the children enjoying themselves on the beach.


Driftwood Suite
The feel of driftwood is what makes this luxury suite so unique. It is a spacious loft room with sea views from every angle. It has sea facing- and mountain facing decks which offer our guests their own private relaxing areas. Listen to the waves and smell the sea, whilst lying in bed. Admire the beautiful sun set over False Bay from the privacy of your private balcony whilst enjoying sundowners. This suite has its own little lounge area with a bar fridge and tea and coffee facilities.
