THE Beach House Collection comprises three spectacularly gorgeous homes in Yzerfontein, and this month I am delighted to announce they are offering an Eat Play Drink Cape Town subscriber the chance to win a two-night midweek stay in one of them during October.
Earlier this year, I went to an interactive cooking weekend at Thyme & Tide, which you can read about here; the second house is called White Sands, and the prize up for grabs is Pearl Bay beach villa, which has two king-sized bedrooms upstairs, a third bedroom downstairs, and yet another king-size one in the boathouse. This means it can sleep eight people, so best you begin refining that crème de la crème friends list.
The upstairs bedrooms share a shower and bathroom, and there’s a separate toilet for modesty’s sake. The downstairs bedroom can be set up with a king-size bed or two single beds, and has its own private bathroom with shower (and a guest loo).
The boathouse is right next to the main house and has stunning ocean views. They call this the “honeymoon suite” because it has a separate entrance so it is completely private. The beautiful open room has a corner bath and separate shower, and its own tea/coffee station, as well as a fridge, so whoever gets to sleep there can have all the essentials close at hand…like a nice chilled bottle of bubbly, just saying…
The crystal clear infinity pool offers a refreshing escape and makes for a perfect photo opportunity, as you can see.
The large open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area is light and airy, and leads out onto the sun-drenched wooden deck and pool, perfect for indoor and outdoor entertaining. The kitchen is a dream, and there is a walk-in pantry; my life goals fluctuate between one of those and a dedicated separate dressing room/closet.
Evenings can still be a bit cool at this time of the year, being so close to the ocean and all, so there is a log burning fireplace. The large barbecue can be moved according to the weather.
All houses include:
Fully alarmed with response unit
Towels and linen provided
Serviced daily with on-site house manager and assistant
All active Eat Play Drink Cape Town subscribers are eligible. If your name is picked in the random draw and you don’t claim your prize, it will be forfeited to the next subscriber (and so on)
The prize is a two-night midweek stay, Sunday to Thursday, and is valid until the end of October
Maximum number of guests is eight
Check in from 3pm, check out by 10am
