The perfect West Coast getaway: Baywatch Villa

I love the South African West Coast. If I could choose anywhere for a weekend away, my searches for holiday accommodation always start there. I’ve been dreaming about a stay at Baywatch Villa for a few years now and believe me when I say, it is as good as it gets. The perfect West Coast getaway: Baywatch Villa Baywatch Villa Collection was established in 2001 by Tony and Shirley Ansley. They made Paternoster their home after falling in love with the little fishing village, its beauty and its people. Tony, being a business man but already on his way to retirement, decided they would stay on and seized the opportunity to secure their retirement yet still have the luxury of a business – keeping his mind active. Shirley, always the loving and supporting wife, was one hundred percent behind him. Together they started with one self catering unit. Soon they realized that this would not be enough as their love for people shone through to their guests and they had more requests for accommodation than they could handle. They expanded to four, luxury self catering units. The beautiful home that they had created as a haven became too big for them and they decided to let the upper level of their beachfront home out. This is the star of the Baywatch Villa Collection as you do not come across such love and effort put into a holiday home for someone else very often. In 2008 another addition was made, we can boast with the magnificent four star Guest House, which will leave you feeling like royalty once you visit....

A magical stay at Aquila Private Game Reserve & Spa

Imagine waking up at 4:00 on the morning of your birthday to the sounds of buffaloes wading through the stream running past your cottage. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Thanks to Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa, that is exactly how I woke up on the morning of my 39th birthday. Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa  ‘Since the 4-star Aquila Private Game Reserve was founded, its ethos and that of our team of dedicated staff have been to educate guests on the importance of wildlife conservation, how it affects us all and what we as individuals can do to protect the environment. Aquila is not only a luxury game reserve and lodge. Its primary purpose is to offer an educational experience to all who visit in the hope that knowledge will enrich our understanding of the importance of living in harmony with Mother Nature. Over the years, Aquila Private Game Reserve has gone to massive efforts and expense to source and re-introduce wildlife into the Cape region so that local residents and visitors alike can benefit and we are therefore proud to offer our visitors an opportunity to experience a Big 5 safari.’ – Aquila When I received the invitation to visit Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa, I almost fell off my chair. I have been dreaming of an Aquila visit for ages and finally my dream was going to become a reality. And as luck would have it, we could book for my birthday. It doesn’t get any better than that. The moment we arrived at the reserve, I knew that it would be an unforgettable experience....
