Gansbaai Holiday Villa

WORDS Cheri Morris IMAGES Johann Lourens and Henrique Wilding

Located on the sunny shores of South Africa’s Whale Coast, Romans Villa is a luxurious seaside getaway spot inside an eco-friendly estate.

Romansbaai is a fynbos and beach estate between Danger Point and Gansbaai. Each home on the estate boasts sweeping ocean views and access to three kilometres of private, unspoiled beach.

Spanning three-levels over 700 square-metres, this villa, designed by Kevid Gadd Architects, with interiors by Dale Dennis of Ballito-based Ground Floor Interiors, offers up calming interiors that are as functional as they are beautiful. Energy-efficient Miele appliances are contrasted by timeless Hansgrohe, Duravit and Geberit sanware. Solar geysers are cleverly concealed amid lush roof-top gardens that are purposefully designed to provide natural heating and cooling effects for the bedrooms and garages below.

During whale season, you can ogle over frolicking pods of whales and dolphins from every room. The rare and protected Oystercatcher bird can also be seen in abundance, swooping along the shores of the beach below.
