The Last Word Long Beach

Just a scenic 30 minute drive from Cape Town, this is a fabulous six room boutique guest house located right on the beach in the picturesque lobster-fishing village of Kommetjie. This is one of a handful of hideaways where the sea is right on your doorstep …..and the beach boasts eight kilometres of fine white powdery sand! This is one of the Western Cape’s best kept secrets where you can walk, ride horses, surf orjust laze in the sun! Characterised by a sweeping curve, Kommetjie’s unspoiled grandeur is at its most striking when seen on the descent from Chapman’s Peak en route to the Cape of Good Hope! This little bay or ‘kom’, a traditional crayfishing spot, offers a simple, uncomplicated existence away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town. In season, you can watch whales frolic a few hundred metres off shores and also in season, you can catch your own lobster and request it for dinner! Kommetjie is one of the premier surfing and marine birding hotspots in South Africa and has the country’s tallest cast iron lighthouse open to the public! Each room is ultra-stylish – seaside chic with great sea views! Breakfasts are a speciality – and guests are encouraged to try local restaurants for lunch and dinner (an in-house chauffeur service is available for transfer to restaurants and tailored visits to the highlights of Cape Town). The Long beach can also be booked on an exclusive use basis for you to share with friends and family – thus it becomes the ideal beach house! Just gaze out across the Atlantic and breathe the fresh ocean scent, or watch seagulls swoop for food above the sparkling sands of Kommetjie’s famous Long Beach. Step off the pool-deck straight onto the white sand and walk for miles along the pristine and undiscovered beach. The nearby historic Imhoff Farm is great for kids (it is also steeped in a rich and eventful history).
