Light and bright seafront holiday home, built by us in 1986.
Perfect to enjoy Betty's Bay coastline, the sea views, the dramatic sunsets, candlelit evenings and the sound of the waves to put you to sleep.

50m from the front beach.
Walking distance to the breath-taking Silversands Beach.
3min drive to the penguin colony.
10min drive to Botanical gardens.
20min drive to Palmiet river swimming and hiking.

Thalassa has soul and many happy moments have been spent here in this idyllic haven.

The space
Built on three levels overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
Two double-bedrooms on the ground floor, cooler and darker for resting.
Mid-level open plan Communal/kids area with 2 single beds, facing the mountain.
The upper level is an open plan space of gathering to cook, eat, relax and enjoy the views from the large deck, and an effective fireplace.

We enjoy using candles at dusk and in the evening as for many years the house didn't have electricity.

There is a large stone braai/BBQ at the back of the house.

Location

Betty's Bay, Western Cape, South Africa

Thalassa is located right on the ocean in front of a unique little bay which has been used for fishing and foraging for thousands of years thanks to the rocks naturally protecting from waves and swell.
It is filled with flora and fauna to discover, both between the rocks and underneath the water.
If you fancy fishing, please make sure you check the seasons to make sure you are doing so legally.

I'm a French and English speaking tour guide and I owned and ran a large bed and breakfast establishment for 25 years. I now travel a lot and hence am renting out my home. Given my experience, I'm happy to share ideas about places to see and visit during your stay in the Cape. Please don't hesitate to ask questions.
