Literally surrounded by 12km pristine beach, a magical nature reserve and a fynbos-filled mountain on the edge of Hawston - a traditional "coloured" fishing village 10 km from Hermanus - our celebrated sea side home nestles in a succulent-filled oasis like space overlooking the Indian Ocean.

O espaço
Our house, which has featured in several local and overseas design magazines, is an unusual modern villa set in a small indigenous and vegetable garden two minutes walk away from one of the most private beaches in the western Cape, the 12km long Hawston to Kleinmond beach. The house has several unusual living, sleeping and relaxing areas which are semi autonomous from each other making individual/couple privacy possible even within a big group.

The upper floor, which sleeps two, and has its own kitchen and bathroom, is completely independent and self sufficient, with magnificent views of the sea and mountain and an outside verandah area with an extra day bed for those who like sleeping outdoors. It can be hired on its own by a couple, two adults or a family with a child/children under two years. Ask for a special rate. It can only be accessed through the main house and we will not necessarily vacate the house if only the upper floor is required at a special rate.

Downstairs the main house consists of a general living area with a large kitchen, a toilet and shower and a sitting room with a sunken pit where at least two extra people can sleep if need be. The pit will need be used as a sleeping place for 2 if there are 8 people, unless people are happy sleeping outside on the day beds.

There is an outside verandah area leading into the garden with a central fireplace on the ground surrounded by space for at least 8 people to enjoy a barbecue or a night round the fire under the stars.
.
The two downstairs bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, are accessed via the verandah and have their own chill yard with an outside day bed under partially covering. Cosmos Makasva, who is full-time at the house and can be a help with all manner of things, lives with his family in a separate renovated garage area adjoining the chill yard space. Although not yet off the grid, it is an eco friendly house and we grow a lot of our own greens. The outside of the house is clad with hundreds of abalone shells. Abalone, crayfish and fish are the main source of livelihood for the Hawston community and can, if possible, be sourced on request.

The house is known to everyone in Hawston not least because the local public 50m pool is right opposite us and is open to the public between November and April each year. It is literally a 2 minute walk across the beach/pool parking to the magnificent Hawston beach. Another 2 minute walk and you are in the middle of an ancient 1500 year old milkwood forest which weaves round a fresh water lake. And another 5 minute walk takes you straight into a private nature reserve which stretches 8km to Vermont along the rocky sea side. In addition to having all modern conveniences, we have a variety of outdoor gear like kayaks, fishing rods, scuba diving gear etc which could, on agreeable terms, be used at your own risk.

Between Cosmos and ourselves we can provide you with a wealth of info and advice on the area and act as guides if required and if possible. The vibe is relaxed, welcoming and positive both in the house and in our relation to the environment and the community. We offer a unique SA experience, given the tortured racial history of our country, in that we are a white couple living in the same space with a black family in a predominantly "coloured" area.

Onde você estará

Hawston, Cabo Ocidental, África do Sul

Hawston is a unique community in the South African context. Its "coloured" residents, who are mainly directly descended from the original indigenous Khoi and San people of South Africa, have historically survived off the sea though these days this is possible only for some. The community is a microcosm of the class inequalities which SA is famous for with extremely poor and rich people living side by side. Although Hawston itself does not have much in terms of entertainment, shopping and restaurants, it has famous golf courses, award winning restaurants, magnificent wine farms, wild horses, wetlands, cool shops, whale and shark watching and every manner of natural outdoor activity within a 15km radius. Its an ideal and relaxed place to base oneself for a few days while exploring these jewels in the environment.

Durante sua estadia

We, the owners, travel a fair amount and also have a house in Muizenberg, Cape Town, but we will be at your disposal for whatever you need when we are around. Cosmos is here all the time and is able to help you with almost all your needs besides the cleaning of the house for you which he will do in any event. We are private people and will default to protecting your privacy, but we also get a kick out of helping people so feel at home if you want to engage.
