News from Bernd & Beate: We have bought ourselves a house on the coast, that we would like to share with our friends and guests @ Acorn House. It is self-catering, not a guesthouse. Please read the description below:

Stunning houses in Pringle Bay, close to Cape Town!

"Where in the world is Pringle Bay?" One of the most spectacular roads in South Africa is the R44 between Gordon's Bay and Hermanus, renowned for whale watching. Pringle Bay is on that road, just one hour drive from Cape Town. Pringle Bay is a very charming, almost rural seaside resort in a "Fynbos" nature reserve.

A dream of a holiday in a stunning house in the peaceful surroundings of a nature reserve and seaside resort, close to Cape Town! All touristic highlights of the Cape are in easy reach.

A dream of a holiday for everyone to recover, for nature lovers, for holiday sharing friends as well as for families. Go hiking, or biking. Catch your own crayfish. Make a braai. Tan at the beach or at your own pool. Just do, what YOU would like to do. Well, always watch the baboons, don't let them steal your food...

A dream of a holiday for golfers – many golf courses within reach of one hour by car.

A dream of a holiday for everybody, who returns to South Africa and can't get enough of it!
