3 bedroom self catering accommodation less than an hour`s drive from Cape Town

This spacious and recently renovated holiday home in the idylic coastal holiday village of Rooiels offers self catering accommodation for up to 6 guests. Fully equipped kitchen, indoor and out door BBQ`s and DSTV (SatTV) makes this home the perfect place for a family holiday close to the sea.

Op-i-c, directly translated as "On-the Sea" has been in our family since 1969, when my grandfather and legendary journalist, Skakel Kriek bought it along with three other plots.

The legacy of Skakel, one of the first journalists to interview Nelson Mandela in 1972, lives on in a house with a colourful history, filled with memories of large Christmas gatherings and late night conversation.

Its is perfect for a family holiday or why not come and enjoy a romantic short break away from the stresses of everyday living.

The picturesque village of Rooiels lies close to the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, an area of such natural beauty and floral diversity that it is recognized by UNESCO as one of the world's greatest biodiversity hot-spots.  Scenery varies from rocky coastlines to pristine white beaches and stunning sunsets over False Bay, a true haven for bird watchers and temporary home to visiting Southern Right Whales from August to November.
