Grootbos Private Nature Reserve sits on the golden sweep of Walker Bay, a marine wildlife haven. The reserve itself is home to an extraordinary diversity of flora, including many species, such as the native protea, unique to South Africa. This is the place to immerse yourself in nature, coastal walks and wholesome activities such as mountain biking and horse riding.
Grootbos has two private villas of four and six bedrooms, which sit within the reserve alongside its two lodges. Set in landscape orientation, the villas’ floor-to-ceiling windows take full advantage of the panoramic bay view foregrounded by lush vegetation. Each villa is fully-staffed and service is flawless, as is the culinary experience.
Villa 1 comprises six bedrooms, sleeping 12, and features frankly everything you could possibly need including two living rooms, three barbeque areas, a private cinema/media room, gym, pool and wine cellar. Villa 2 comprises four bedrooms, sleeping eight, as well as indoor and outdoor living areas, sauna, gym, games rooms and private pool.
