Set in an extraordinary location on the outskirts of the picturesque village of St Francis Bay lies Dune Ridge Country House a family run estate that epitomizes tranquillity and charm.
Surrounded by rich coastal fynbos, an abundance of birdlife and large gardens, this country house typifies comfort and charm without compromising service or attention to detail.
With beautiful oregan pine flooring and fixtures, adorned with antique furniture and dark hued Persians this old farmhouse takes you back to a bygone era. Large verandas overlook the indigenous garden while Nyala gracefully graze on the lawn or resident caracal saunter past at sunset...making this a coastal treasure.
Originally built in the early 2000’s from absolutely nothing, this remarkable establishment captures the essence of a bygone era of an old African farm. All materials were either recycled or brought in from the surrounding areas. The large stone fireplace that adorns the open plan living room with comfortable kudu skin leather couches was built utilising rocks from the nearby Gamtoos River Valley. While the fire crackles away guests can sit back and relax and enjoy a selection of South African publications or reference books from our intimate library sipping on a complementary local Port Wine or Sherry.
Surrounded by immaculately kept indigenous gardens Dune Ridge consists of six double rooms and one family cottage. All have private patios and gardens and all guests can enjoy the guesthouse’s large sparkling outdoor pool. Set in the magnificent gardens with a spectacular view of the Estate, the recently renovated open-air Boma area provides an attractive alternative to the more formal dining room, offering innovative, informal meals with the focus on fresh wholesome cuisine or a traditional South African Barbeque.
Aromatherapy, massage and reflexology are available on request in the privacy of guests’ suites or alternatively in our Bush Spa. Dune Ridge’s additional features include an internet and e-mail facilities or business centre and a Curio shop. There are also two well known golf courses within easy access of the guest house one being the infamous Links in St Francis designed by Jack Nicklaus and rates as one of the Top 10 courses in South Africa.
Perfect for a romantic honeymoon, Dune Ridge also provides the ideal escape for a family holiday. Unlike many establishments of this calibre and in this area, Dune Ridge welcomes and caters for children of all ages.
