Further details

Golf: The Garden Route, one of South Africa’s top attractions is a scenic coastal region along its southernmost coast. Renowned for its beaches, indigenous forests, nature reserves, lakes, mountain ranges, adventure opportunities, hiking trails, and world class golfing. It runs from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape all the way to Storms River in the Eastern Cape. Bakatad is situated fairly well right in the middle. This unique stretch of South Africa coastline benefits from a mild climate all year long, making it a golfer’s paradise. It enjoys a Mediterranean Maritime climate, with moderately hot summers, and mild to chilly winters. It is one of the richest rainfall areas in South Africa. Most of the rains occurs in the winter months, brought on by the humid sea-winds from the Indian ocean. The Garden Route’s temperate weather falls between two climatic regions of summer and winter rainfall so it rains mostly at night which keeps the area perennially green. Fancourt Country Club Estate ,in George, is ranked in the Top 10 of all South Africa’s Golf Courses. The Pinnacle Point Golf Course, perched on the cliff tops above Mossel Bay, was selected as one of the World’s Top 10 Best New Courses for 2006. But with so many courses, 12 in the immediate area, all within easy driving distance of the house, you are spoiled for choice.

Other Activities: Scenic Flights, Bird Watching, Seasonal Whale Watching.

  • Tex Rees:

    Bakatad Lodge is the perfect holiday spot! The house is large an inviting, the views are spectacular, the beaches and restaurants are world class.

    My family and I had a wonderful holiday and we cannot thank Simon enough for going the extra mile to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We have stayed at a number of holiday villas over the years and I can honestly say that the hospitality we received was beyond compare.

  • Douglas Olivier:

    One of our Austrian neigbors in Pretoria stayed at Bakatad and recommended it
    We are however only two senior adults in the party
    Please let me know which days are available in the second half of Dec as well as the rental

    • Simon:

      Dear Dougie,

      You sound like our ideal guests so we will lower the rental for you !

      Our previous guests leave on the 21st Dec – a Thursday- so we need to clean after so the first available date will be the 22nd December.

      The house is then free til Jan 13th.

      As its high season we charge £1050 per week usually ( £150 per day ) but as its only 2 people we will lower to it to £125 per day for you.

      let me know what you would like to do. I have also sent you an email earlier from my home address in the UK

      best wishes
