"Anchors Away" is perched up on the hill above the river and has the most wonderful 180 degree views of the river, river mouth and out to sea.

The house consists of 2 bedrooms. Main bedroom upstairs has a queen-size bed and a single bed which has an en-suite bathroom with shower. The other bedroom has twin beds (which are normally made up as a king size bed - they can be split if requested) and has a bathroom with shower and bath. There is another small room with a double bunk and washing machine - which is fine for overflow of kids! There is a spare mattress which can be moved to where ever for another kid and a futon in the braai area.

All bedding provided including electric blankets for the cold winter nights. Please bring a couple of spare towels - we seem to be a bit short sometimes if there is not enough drying time between change-overs.

View of Anchors Away from the river

Anchors Away has a large open plan lounge/dining room and kitchen which steps down into an open plan braai room. The lounge has a fireplace, TV with DSTV (please bring your own cards for more channels than TV 1,2,3 and e-TV ), DVD player and radio. Dart Board and many other games and puzzles are provided to keep you entertained. The kitchen is fully fitted with all you need including a dishwasher.

There is an open green belt in front of the house with a path leading to the beach of the river.

Witsand/Port Beaufort is situated at the mouth of the Breede River. It is a 3 hour drive from Cape Town and an excellent halfway stop en route to Knysna.

You could try some fishing on the Breede River, recognised as the best in South Africa. Fish such as cob, spotted grunter and garrick are regularly caught in the estuary. A wide variety of water sports make this a popular weekend retreat and holiday destination. Take a drive to the De Hoop Nature Reserve or to the Malagas via the Pont which is the only hand-drawn pontoon in the country. Cruise up the Breede River. The area offers excellent bird watching and is an important breeding ground for the rare Blue Crane and the endangered African Black Oystercatcher.

In the winter months between May and November the bay becomes South Africa's "Whale nursery" when the Southern Right whales arrive to mate and calve. Official helicopter survey statistics has shown that up to 94 whales including 43 calves can be spotted in the bay on one day!

Horse riding and Hotel with restaurant and friendly fisherman's pub 5 minutes away. There is also a pizza restaurant and two small convenience stores which stock all you could need.
