WHERE: Churchhaven, West Coast National Park, Western Cape, 021-790-0972, perfecthideaways.co.za
WHY WE LOVE IT: The quiet beauty of Churchhaven, with its turquoise blue waters, white sand and natural wetlands, is what draws people here again and again, in summer and winter. There’s a limit on the number of houses that can be built so its sought-after status is guaranteed. With uninterrupted sea views from the patio area and main bedrooms, Church Cottage is perfectly situated. Decorated in classic greys and whites with lovely bed linen and four bedrooms (including a children’s attic space), it’s an ideal family getaway destination.
X-FACTOR: A well laid out and equipped kitchen complete with separate scullery, indoor and outdoor dining areas, three fireplaces and a pizza oven mean loads of great meal times day and night, whatever the weather.
