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 Paternoster

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. The Baywatch Villa Collection is owner managed and you can be assured of passion for hospitality as well as housekeeping.

I’ve been treated to a stay at the Baywatch Villa Penthouse on two occasions, and I can’t wait to go back. The 4-Star Penthouse is on the beach and there are no words to describe the breathtaking view from the balcony.

The Penthouse is a private upstairs self-catering unit with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The lounge, kitchen and dining area has everything you need (and more!) and it looks and feels like home.

The Penthouse is perfect for a summer or winter getaway as the balcony is protected from wind and rain, plus huge sliding doors will let you enjoy a lovely summertime breeze and the fireplace is there to keep you warm and snug in winter.

The main bedroom has the most comfortable double bed and the room opens onto a sun deck with spectacular sea views.

The second bedroom is just as comfy and includes all the luxuries as the first.

What we enjoy most about the Penthouse is the balcony. We literally spent most of our time there sipping on wine, chatting and playing games whilst my husband manned the braai. The view of the beach takes your breath away and you don’t need much else to forget about the stress and hustle and bustle.

The beach itself is magnificent and the beauty of Paternoster is something to behold.

Thank you Shirley and Emy for both our wonderful stays at Baywatch Villa.
