You couldn’t get closer to the beach if you tried than at this hidden treasure up the West Coast. It’s the best kind of surprise at the end of the 90-minute drive from Cape Town to the little holiday town of Dwarskersbos, and just when you find yourself wondering where you’re headed, you arrive at the end of the road, the beach sand virtually there as you jump out the car. There’s a delicious sense of being far removed from it all once ensconced at Casa Blu’, a loftily proportioned, contemporary take on the charming fisherman cottages so beloved of the region. It has the typical whitewashed walls, shuttered windows and wide, shady stoep, but with lots of clever details and immaculate styling thrown in for a look that manages to be both sophisticated and perfectly relaxed.
One of the best things about the house is that you can enjoy the ocean views from just about every room, including while prepping meals in the lovely open-plan kitchen. But there’s no better spot for enjoying sundowners than on the upstairs terrace, dubbed the whale-watching terrace for good reason – and not only whales but also the breathtaking spectacle of Heaviside dolphins leaping through the surf. Mornings here start off with coffee taken down to the beach before heading back to the house for breakfast. Just 12km away is the fish market and a good butcher where you can stock up for the evening’s braai. After an exhausting day in the surf and sun, curl up under cool Egyptian cotton sheets and light, breathable throws, just the thing for muggy summer nights. All the bedrooms have been individually decorated with the same loving attention to detail found throughout this fabulous retreat.
There are 2 fold out beds in the downstairs bedroom suitable for 2 extra kids if required

A wonderful home, wonderful views, wonderful living outside space.
We absolutely loved the house. The location on the beach couldn’t be better, and the house had every conceivable item required for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. In fact, we might well be back there in future – certainly in the summer months! Thank you also to Sara, Rix and yourself for making the experience a positive one, from booking to exit.
We had a wonderful stay (again). The house is so comfortable and stylish and well decorated, it is one of our favorite places to be on our travels. Location is great as well. This year we had 1 or 2 days of bad weather, but it was no problem: we could use the beautiful living spaces and the fireplace inside!
I am delighted to report that we had a really lovely time – I don’t think I have been so relaxed on holiday in such a long time. The setting and access to the beach was just amazing and we could have stayed there longer!! Everything we needed was there and the garage in itself was spotless – something to aspire towards. The rooms were very clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed so everyone was very happy. We were also incredibly lucky to witness a huge pod of dolphin that stayed in the bay for about 2 hours – so beautiful and special
We loved every minute of Casa Blu! :) Zero criticism. The house is beautiful and you can feel the love and care that has gone into it, providing guests with everything they could possibly need for a very relaxing on-the-beach holiday. Even though the wind came up in the afternoons, the design of the house is such that you can still lie at the pool, enjoy sundowners, BBQ and dine outside. The bedrooms are dreamy and the shaded hammock a winner! Rix was super sweet and helpful. Will definitely be back! Thank you for the perfect hideaway!
We spent the most wonderful New Years and yours and loved every minute of sun bathing, beach walking, wine drinking and pool swimming. You are wonderful!Thank you and take care!
I have to say there is really nothing we would change. Everything is well placed and there is nothing one needs more than what is in the house. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back!
The stay was good and we enjoyed it a lot!

Wow! What a beautiful place...both the location and the house. We all loved everything about...the pool, so well equipped and tastefully decorated. Thank you for the nice touches of a bottle of champagne, milk in the fridge and coffee pods to start! Only complaint is that we stayed too short. Would love to go back...

Thank you for a wonderful place to stay. We couldn’t have asked for more and it was a perfect hideaway for relaxed family time. An immaculate end to our holiday – the real five star part of it all. The house is gorgeous, everything in great quality and the owners have thought of everything. We’ll be back.
Once again a spectacular display of what South Africa has to offer! Thank you for a wonderful stay
This was a birthday treat! And my word, it more than met expectations! A much needed retreat that delivered! Thank you.
Casa Blue was excellent, we had a really great time.
What a gorgeous place, you created a little piece of heaven! We enjoyed everything so much: the warm welcome, crispy meruings, warm and sunny days, spectacular views and the woo-fire on the porch in the evenings. Last but not least the relaxed, stylish, inviting and warm home you created. Thank you for sharing it.
