If your idea of the perfect beachfront home is one with all the bells and whistles of comfortable, modern life then Romans Villa is for you. The owner of this expansive, north-facing Kevin Gadd designed home enjoys life’s luxuries and has scrimped on nothing. Think Italian fireplace, heated pool, designer furniture and brands such as Bose, Miele & Mungo and you get the idea.
Situated just forty minutes from Hermanus, a little way past Gansbaai, the house is set within a security estate giving one total peace of mind. This is a spacious home whose design has been thought out with great care to ensure guests have ample room to enjoy time together and also savour some individual private downtime. The six large en-suite bedrooms each have a private verandah where the sound of the ocean will becalm busy souls. It makes inviting all your nearest and dearest for a relaxed family gathering a breeze.
And a breeze is all you are likely to encounter here during the warm, summer months, since this bit of coastline is fantastically well sheltered from the summer’s South Easterly winds. The immaculate beach is a mere 5 minute stroll away, with softest white sand, crystal clear blue-green waters and incredible views of Walker Bay and the mountains beyond.
There are multiple meeting points within the common areas of the house – the open-plan living and dining room leads directly to the pool for delightful indoor / outdoor summer-living flow. There is a lawned area where grown-ups may loll taking in magnificent ocean and mountain views whilst the kids romp and play. A protected courtyard brings additional light to the house whilst providing the perfect spot for mothers and daughters to sip a coffee and catch up. Fathers and sons can hone their braaing skills on the large, state-of-the-art steel braai.
For those enjoying a longer stay at this glorious spot there is plenty in the area to keep one entertained. Close by are mountain bike trails traversing fynbos landscapes, hikes through age-old Milkwood forests and wine-tastings followed by a fabulous meal at one of several nearby wine farms. Remember to pack all your water-sport playthings and visit the deli then create a feast of a picnic for a day on the beach – holidays as they should be, comfortable, relaxed and heaps of fun.
What we love!
All six bedrooms are spacious, en suite and best of all they each enjoy a fabulous ocean view. No scramble to bags the best room!
Visit during whale-watching season and you can enjoy watching their displays from the comfort of home. Dolphins are frequently seen frolicking in the bay too.
If shark-cage diving is your thing then Gansbaai has the best operators in the country.
What you need to know:
Whilst during summer the house is protected from the dreaded south easterly, over the winter months the wind can blow. Time to snuggle in front of that gorgeous Italian fireplace!
The house is well-stocked with games, books and DVD’s to keep every generation happy on those chillier days.

We very much enjoyed our 5 days at Romans Villa, thank you very much. The house was beautiful, with luxurious appliances and extremely comfortable beds and bedding. Lucky looked after us very well too, and when the TV wasn’t working (we were keen to watch some of the winter Olympics!) he got it fixed really quickly. We also loved exploring the surrounding area, especially Stanford and the lovely wine farms in the vicinity. Thank you again for helping us organise such a lovely part of our trip to South Africa, and we hope to book again with you soon!
