The Cape West Coast village of Yzerfontein is only 50 minutes drive from Cape Town, where Gilbert’s Gift has stunning views of the sea and of the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

It is an excellent base from which to explore the Cape West Coast – long walks on the beach or in the veld, wild flowers in season, bird and whale watching, visiting the harbour where fresh fish is landed daily, and the beautiful sunsets from the wooden deck. For the more energetic, the fishing, diving, surfing and boating conditions are excellent while the main beach is a safe swimming area for children. Game drives are just 10 minutes away.

Although there are many activities and interesting day trips that can be done from Yzerfontein as a base, the most treasured would just be to stay at Gilbert’s Gift and enjoy the total peace, quiet and magnificent views of the ocean.

Gilbert’s Gift is situated on the water front and has unobscured views of the sea and Dassen Island. It faces west where the sun sets over the Atlantic ocean. All the bedrooms have a sea view, and you can watch the whales frolicking in the water from the comfort your bed. Most shops, beaches, restaurants and fishing spots are within walking distance.

The house has three bedrooms, one en suite, and sleeps six – all with a sea view. It has all the facilities of a fully furnished house including a DSTV, all necessary appliances and interior as well as exterior entertainment areas and braais for all the seasons and weather conditions.
