Birkenhead House & Villa



Set on a cliff’s edge in the Western Cape, with stunning views over two sandy beaches, Birkenhead House is a haven of luxury for those travelling along the Garden Route. It has dazzling ocean views and easy access to the beach. Between June and November, the view includes whales, which swim right in front of the hotel. The hotel’s contemporary feel is a classic beach with a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere where you can breakfast at noon, take tea on your balcony, then watch the ocean at dusk over a cocktail or two. Birkenhead House is located on several levels with a dining terrace and an infinity pool whose water seems to merge with that of the ocean beyond. Decorated in to reflect the beauty of its coastal setting, it is adorned with rare maritime antiques and sumptuous fabrics giving it an opulent eclectic feel. This is arguably the ultimate coastal retreat.
