The weekend I stayed in Kommetjie
Almost 2 weeks ago The Boyf and I, plus some of The Boyf's family, trotted off to Kommetjie to stay in a beautiful beach house for the weekend.
The thatched-roof home, very aptly named 'Beach Haven', is located right on Long Beach and is ridiculously awesome. Among other things, it has 4 bedrooms (all with their own bathrooms) and a big pool.
On arrival we were greeted by the friendly owners and shown around. I was instantly smitten with the look and feel of the place. The decor and furniture (which is almost all blue, white or red) is modern, yet relaxed. I especially loved the upstairs living room, kitchen, study area and the main bedroom (which is where The Boyf & I were lucky enough to sleep during our stay).
One undeniably cool thing about Beach Haven is that it has it's own pathway leading straight from the deck/pool area onto the beach. All I had to do was walk a few meters and my feet were in the chilly, Atlantic ocean - it was so blissful. I hope someday I can have my own beach path to go with my beach house ;)
The best thing about this house is that it has a seriously great view of the ocean. I honestly could have just sat on the balcony for days staring at it.
When I was growing up I spent good portion of my childhood living in Kommetjie and playing on Long Beach. I always loved waking up to the small of sea air and hearing the waves in the distance. Staying in Kommetjie again not only brought back a lot of happy memories for me, but reminded me just how beautiful it is there.
I'll definitely be booking a stay at Beach Haven again and would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a luxury, beach getaway that is not too far from the city.
