Text Naomi Larkin Photographs Supplied WHERE: Kommetjie, Western Cape, perfecthideaways.co.za WHY WE LOVE IT: This gloriously spacious beach house is perfectly located – you’re almost on the beach but just back enough not to have everyone peering in your bedroom windows. There’s loads of room for all the family with two storeys, sleeping for 10, and sun decks top and bottom, front and back. Decor is stylish and yet relaxed enough for kids to feel at home. The kitchen is a cook’s dream and there are a number of dining spaces so it’s well suited to entertainers. X-FACTOR: Surfers need no introduction to Kommetjie’s treasures so there’ll be no cries of ‘boring’ on this getaway. This article originally featured in the June 2014 issue of House and Leisure.
