Our home

Our Beach house is situated within a private nature reserve, with direct access to the beach. It is our holiday home, aprox. 45 minutes drive away from Cape Town city center. In an unspoilt environment we have almost a private beach with hardly ever more that a couple of people. You can enjoy the peaceful nature that surrounds you. If the Atlantic Ocean is too cold for you, there is a community center close by (5 minutes drive) where you find a heated pool, squash & tennis courts. It is the perfect getaway. Car (BMW X5) can be used optionally if you can provide a similar car yourself at your house for us.

Who we are

  1. My wife Ruth and myself, Reiner, emigrated almost 10 years ago from Germany to South Africa. Together with our 3 kids we enjoy the beauty of this country. Our beach house at Jakkalsfontein is our second and holiday house, so we are flexible with dates. We are foremost looking for skiing resorts during March / April.

Your neighbourhood

Our house is situated in a private nature reserve. If you are seeking the stimulating buzz of a busy place, or the luxuriant pleasures of a warm coastal resort, read no further - Jakkalsfontein is not for you.
The West Coast of the Cape is wild, certainly, but with a reticent and austere beauty which stems from sand, sea and sky, the patterned mosaics of fynbos, and the rolling inland hills. Some Jakkalsfontein mornings are made magical by banks of early fog, through which loom the dimly perceived dune-shaped roofs. These drifting mists leave behind them sparkling spider webs like diamonds in the salvias, and a sudden sight of vast blue sky. Our evenings may glow with the brilliance and splendor of scarlet sunsets, dissolving into the cold, green sea. In due season, the not-so-distant desert heat burns into bush and beach, with shimmering mirages trance-dancing over Dassen Island and stunned stillness in the veld.

The scents and sounds of Jakkalsfontein add other dimensions to the pleasures of place. There is the sharp sensuality of breeze-borne shore smells, all salt and seaweed, contrasting with the gently accented perfumes of sun-warmed fynbos. The nights are filled with frogsong, and the changeless yet ever-changing roar of the restless sea forms the background of our days.
