About this listing
Tucked away between steeply falling green hills, lies Ballots Bay, a small beach carved out of the rugged Southern Cape coastline of the Garden Route in South Africa, between Victoria Bay and Heralds Bay. It is within a Private nature reserve
The 1 bedroom log cabin is high up on ridge overlooking the sea and Outeniqua Mountains. It has an open plan fully equipped kitchen and lounge leading onto a deck overlookig the magnificent views. The lounge has 2 sleeper couches for additional guests. It has a lovely little garden in front of home and has a weber for braais
Hiking trails lead you through indigenous forests raucous with bird song including the magnificent Knysna Lourie’s, across grasslands with free roaming Zebra, Buck, Ostrich, karakul and tortoise. There is a trail to a water hole with a bird hide and another to a forest lapa. There is even a little stone church which can be hired for weddings, it has rural charm and was used for an “Irish wedding” scene, featured in a TV ad for Cadbury’s chocolate.
At the Bay are 2 braai areas with an ablution block. Here the Meulen river meets the bay, which has a pretty pebbled beach and rock pools, ideal for paddling, it also has a large area for playing ball games.
