"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... Show more

We had a pleasant stay at Anchors Away. The place was very clean and neat. I would certainly recommend others to stay there, and will definitely book Anchors Away again on my next trip to the Western Cape.

A welcoming, tranquil 'home away from home' surrounded by nature. Situated a stone's throw from the river. House neat and clean on arrival. Lovely large open-plan living space - light and airy with spectacular views of the Breede river and mouth. Well furnished with plenty of beach decor touches. Comfortable couches. Large telly. Good lighting, creating a lovely ambiance at night. Indoor built-in braai. Kitchen well equipped, all appliances in excellent condition. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. Good value for money. Will definitely be back soon.

Charming, simple, comfortable - a Must for those in need of R&R!

What a PLEASURE is what I can say. From the moment you unlock the front door you feel it. Spacious, well decorated and equipped, and simply lovely. We were just two but there was ample space for ALL and more. We love our fishing along the west coast and all the way through to Jeffrey's Bay, BUT this HAS to be our new favourite spot .... for fishing ... YES, but definitely the best place we have ever stayed at. Initially booked for 3 nights but ended up extending because we just could not get enough. Whatever you want to do ..... Cook, braai, relax on the couch in front of the TV or read a book, this HOME away from HOME, has it all. The kitchen is very well equipped. There is a washing machine and dishwasher too. The rooms are really comfortable and spacious, AND the beds are great. Best sleep I had in years. The owner, Sylvia was absolutely fantastic at giving every bit of information about the house and this lovely town to make our stay even more comfortable. She was a star and is always a phone call away. This is absolute value for money and I will never stay anywhere else in and around the Breede River. ANCHORS AWAY is my NO 1 and if you are looking for comfort and a homely break away from home, you will not be disappointed AT ALL. As long as it is not when we would like to go AGAIN! :-)

I went to Anchors Away for 3 days. It was the relaxing break that I needed. The house is one of the most comfortable that I ever stayed in. It has all the luxuries of home and the living areas are big, airy and comfortable. The magnificent views from the front rooms are amazing. I sat on the sofa and watched the whales playing in the waves with my binoculars. The natural beauty and abundance of birds and dassies were charming. If you want to just unwind, this is a holiday you will not forget.

If you have 4 people or less wanting to stay at a lovely home, with FANTASTIC views, this would be the place to go. We enjoyed our stay, although the weather this season was not great, and we will still go back.

We stayed at Anchor's Away in May 2009 and can honestly say that it was the most tranquil and peaceful holiday we have had in South Africa. Witsand was such a laid back town with amazing and friendly people who were only to eager to help in what ever way they could. The best part of our stay was the house. Anchors Away has got the most stunning view from the kitchen, lounge area. It was clean and neat and very much a home away from home. Thank you Sylvia. We will be back.

Wonderfully situated, with fantastic views of the river and ocean. Had a whale of a time and so wonderful to be able to take our dogs with. Really relaxed and enjoyed our stay - children can walk to jetty and river for fishing.
