Abansi Beach House

Abansi Beach House Stilbaai

This self-catering holiday home is located in Still Bay East, in the Western Cape. Abansi Beach House has two levels that are rented out separately and is a beach-front property with uninterrupted sea views. The area is known for the Geelkrans Nature Reserve hiking route. Whale watching, birding, swimming, surfing as well as fishing are all popular activities in this popular coastal area. The well-known Lappiesbaai blue flag beach and safe swimming as well as surfing spot is only a few steps away.

The house offers a double garage which, of course means that if you rent the house as a whole, you have the use of both garages. Should you be renting only one level, you get to use only one garage. The backyard is enclosed with gates on both sides of the house offering some privacy, especially when using the outdoor braai area.
