During the calving season (July to November), Southern Right whales swim and breach right in front of the house. Swim or snorkel at the bottom of the garden, exploring the rock pools or going for leisurely coastal walks, or stroll to world-renowned Boulder’s penguin colony.
The Milestone’s superb 180-degree uninterrupted sea-views offer a ringside seat for the ever-changing moods of the panorama from sunrise to spectacular pastel sunsets, and moonrise over False Bay. Even the outside barbecue deck offers a magnificent outlook.
The lovingly maintained house is equipped with everything a group of six would need for a comfortable seaside holiday, including Wi-Fi. It sleeps six in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen.
There is secure parking in a lock-up garage, and protection by a reputable security firm.
