Our home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom holiday home with private pool in an enclosed garden, in a quiet suburb called Brenton on Sea which is a 20 minute scenic drive (+- 15km) from the town of Knysna in the Western Cape – along the famous Garden Route. Villa Whatman sleeps 6 privately in 3 bedrooms, however there is the possibility of sleeping an additional 6 guests if you don’t mind sharing your space in the Reading room… The Master Bedroom has Cool Colours of Sand, Green & Seafoam Shades make up the Master Bedroom with King Size Bed, chest of drawers and bookcase with en-suite Bathroom (bathroom has a bath, toilet and wash basin) + Built in cupboards and a safe. Bedroom 2, is a nautical themed bedroom in Navy, White & Grey has a queen size Bed, built in cupboards, wooden chair and butlers table. Bedroom 3 is a fresh and bright, Turquoise & White Bedroom with two single beds. There is a chest of drawers, chair as well as built in cupboards & dressing table. There is another full bathroom between bedrooms 2 & 3 with bath, separate shower, washbasin and toilet plus an additional separate spare Guest loo. In the center of the house there is a Reading room – this is a very casual relaxed room, which has a chaise lounge, double sleeper couch as well as a single day bed. We have an extra blow up double mattress as well as a single futon or mattress that can be used if extra guests are happy to sleep here. There is enough bedding provided for all the beds. The bookcase is filled with a variety of interesting books, including some children’s books, cookbooks and pamphlets of things to do in and around the area. Please read and enjoy! From the Reading Room - there are double doors with a security gate opening onto a Covered Patio & BBQ Area with a Large Outdoor table and 8 chairs, including an extra console table and a drinks trolley. The gas BBQ is there for the preparation of a typical African braai under the shade of the African sun - Remembering that the sun only sets around 8pm in summer. The Main Lounge is furnished with comfortable, grey leather reclining lounge suite and two ottomans and a flat screen TV. The full DSTV package is available at an extra charge per day. The fireplace is for ambiance only as we would prefer to keep our home a “smoke free environment”. The separate Dining Area with hatch to kitchen has a large dining table that seats 8 guests comfortably - A dresser and wine rack complete the scene. The kitchen is fully equipped with eye level oven and hob, large fridge/freezer and a combination microwave as well as necessary kettle, toaster etc. There is also a hostess trolley. A dishwasher, washing machine and drier are plumbed in for your convenience. You will notice that as this was our home there are lots of additional items that may not be listed on the inventory but are there to make your stay more convenient and memorable. In the Entrance you will find a telephone table where there is a phone connection as well as free Wi-Fi Internet access. Please note that we would kindly respect that you do not use the phone for any International calls or for Mobile calls – this has been left out for your convenience for local calls only or for receiving calls. In the bookcase is a host of novels for your enjoyment. The Private Pool is in the front garden of the house and there are two floating beanbags available for your enjoyment in or out of the water. We also have a stunning Entertainment Room above the garage – this is a separate room via stairs on the outside of the house. This room has a large corner comfy lounge suite, a large flat screen TV (DSTV available), DVD player and CD player. There is a bar table with 4 chairs, a day bed and a snooker table as well as an exercise bike. Additionally you will find a bar fridge, an icemaker, tot pourer and a biltong slicer. The 3 sides have glass concertina type doors that can be opened onto a deck with views of the Ocean towards Buffels Bay. This is the perfect spot for your nightly Sundowner and to watch the most amazing Brenton on Sea Sunsets! We have a fully enclosed Garden, a Garage and 2 extra cars can fit in the driveway behind the electric remote controlled gates. In the garage you will find a table tennis table and some pool toys as well as extra BBQ equipment (potjie pots), two extra fridges for drinks as well as a large chest freezer. There are two sun umbrellas for the garden and a sun tent for use at the beach as well as a couple of cooler boxes. Please note that the entire house is a smoke free zone and we would ask that any smokers please smoke outside and dispose of your cigarette ends appropriately. Pets may be permitted depending on the breed and age on request. No pets are permitted to live in the house, on furniture or in/on any beds. There are two large dog kennels available outside.More

About the neighbourhood
Knysna is a particularly beautiful area of the South African coast, 500km from Cape Town and around 270km from Port Elizabeth along the famous Garden Route – George Domestic Airport is the closest to our home being a 50 minute, scenic drive away. Knysna is the pearl of the Garden Route and is situated between George and Plettenberg Bay.
