Company information

Mossel Bay is paradise with a temperate climate, similar to the Seychelles. Everyday in summertime! Villa Palmera is set in a quiet neighbourhood, overlooking the Indian Ocean with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains in the background. It is a pet holiday paradise with lovely cliff top walks on the Cape St. Blaize Trail and beaches to explore in the area. Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. I am happy to leave you in peace to reflect and unwind, or share local knowledge and suggest places to visit or opportunities to get involved with community programs.

Property information

A pet friendly warm welcome awaits. I look forward to assisting, where I can with local insight and tips on the best places to go and see. I myself have travelled extensively and have had a long love affair with Africa. It is a dream come true to own and run a guesthouse in Mossel Bay. I was born in Wales, UK and I came to live in Africa, in 1999, after I took a career break from British Airways and worked as a horseback safari guide in the Waterberg, on a black rhino sanctuary. I never returned to the corporate world and instead pursued a conservation career working in South Africa, Malawi and Cambodia. I now love sharing my home with like-minded travelers, chatting about The Garden route and my current ocean conservation efforts.

Neighbourhood information

Linkside is a quiet palm fringed central suburb in Mossel Bay. The Cape St. Blaize coastal trail is only 5 minutes walk away for spectacular scenery, sight dolphins, whales or the new longest zip-line in the World over the sea! Highly recommended- Point of Human Origins, a world renowned archaeological site. A 2-hour walk along the Cape. St. Blaize trail to Pinnacle Point Golf Course, picnic or eat at the restaurant, book the guided tour and then catch a taxi back to Mossel Bay. Alternatively, walking down into Mossel Bay, past the Lighthouse to "The Point" only takes 15 minutes and a nice way to see the area and escape being in the car. A visit to Bartholomeu Diaz Maritime Museum a must, followed by a walk on the Diaz beach and a sundowners at the 'Blue Oyster' Bar overlooking the bay. If you need supplies Mossel Bay, main street offers local stores PEP and Jet stores, major High Street Banks and Checkers Supermarket. The new 'Cork and Plunger' pub and restaurant has excellent breakfasts, Sunday lunch and evening meals. Coffee at Work opposite ABSA has the best coffee and service in town. Shark Cage Diving and a sunset cruise on a Catamaran firm tourist favourites.
