Ruth Lurner
The Gull is basically home away from home, equipped with everything you could possibly want for a self-catering beach holiday. The property is also situated near a beach restaurant for those that don't want to cook or a short drive into town to all the other wonderful restaurants. Each unit has it's own private barbecue area and there is also a communal fire-pit, pizza oven and well equipped gym on the premises. The bird life is amazing and so are all the other creatures that happen to visit us every now and again like tortoises, bush buck, mongoose, etc
I run The Gull with my husband and one of my sons. We are all passionate about wild life and have been involved in helping to save wild life for many years in various different fields. I personally am mad about birds and really enjoy the birds that arrive in our garden. We also enjoy taking a walk through Birds of Eden near Plettenburg Bay where one can get really close to birds that you would normally really have a hard time seeing like the elusive Knysna Turaco.
Myoli Beach is a very naturally beautiful and pristine beach. Partake in numerous water sports or take a walk along the beach and see fossilized sand dunes, snorkle at Gericke's point or watch the breeding pairs of African Black Oyster Catchers. Look out for dolphins, whales, seals and all the other sea creatures. Take a walk to the river mouth and see an abundance of different water bird life including the beautiful fish eagle. There are also so many adventurous things to do in and around Sedgefield so if it's the outdoors you want then this is the place to be.
