Anchors Away is a lovely, self-contained, holiday home, perched up on the hill above the Breede River and has the most wonderful 180 degree views of the river, river mouth and out to sea.

The house is very popular due to its superb position, with stunning views and with very easy access for a boat. All our guests who have stayed there just love it and needless to say, so do we. The house is on the corner of Hitchcock Road which is the road leading down to the Government Jetty. There is an open green belt in front of the house with a path leading to the beach of the river.

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

Anchors Away has three bedrooms and can accommodate seven people.
The house consists of 2 bedrooms and a small bunk room. 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 you want for another child 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.

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.

Tariff is R850 for the first two people and R200 extra per person thereafter.  A once off Laundry/change over and cleaning fee of R300 is payable for a stay of up to five nights;  R500 for more nights.  A  refundable breakage/damage deposit of R750 is required for each booking.

We do allow pets, but we are not totally geared up to be “Pet friendly”. The property is not enclosed and we do not provide a kennel and dog beds, etc. The house is fully tiled. Pets must have been “Frontline” sprayed before arrival. Pet owners need to also clean up after the dogs.
