During my wonderful time in South Africa I decided to drive alongside the famous Garden Route, a 300-kilometre stretch of the south-western coast. What a journey! And my first stop at the luxurious Oceans Wilderness Villa was the best beginning!
On a Tuesday morning, I flew from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, where I rented a car at the airport. Only 1h20min flight, very easy! From the airport I drove for 4 hours to Wilderness, enjoying the fabulous landscape. The road was very easy and safe, I drove alone and I had no problems at all! 🙂
As many of you asked me if “Wilderness” was actually the name of a town or “an adjective”, I’d like to clarify that Wilderness is a town in South Africa’s Western Cape Province, on a coastal stretch known as the Garden Route. It’s also home to wide beaches facing the Indian Ocean
Furthermore, you can visit the Wilderness Natural Park, part of the sprawling Garden Route National Park, habitat for wildlife including leopards, monkeys and eagles. Outeniqua Mountains and the Kaaimans River are definitely interesting to explore too!
OCEANS WILDERNESS VILLA
My first stop on the Garden Route was phenomenal… I arrived at the luxurious Oceans Wilderness Villa and my jaw dropped in front of its breathtaking sea-view!
This wonderful property is exactly like my dream-home: a majestic villa in front of the ocean, with a huge wide beach in front of it! You can literally feel the power of the ocean, my favorite feeling!
When I got to this beautiful villa, I also loved the interiors. Elegant taste, perfectly balanced with the beauty of the nature.
The reception area was so clean and tidy, adorable! The staff remarkably kind and helpful!
The villa has also a private swimming pool, where also kids can play safely. A nice spot to sunbathe too!
THE LUXURY SUITES
I had the pleasure to stay in the Sky Suite West, overlooking the ocean the entire time, with a fantastic terrace only for myself.
When I arrived, I found some chocolate and candies on my bed, so sweet!
The view from the terrace was really my favorite ever! And I cannot explain how strong was the sound of the ocean. Simply magical!
DINING @ OCEANS WILDERNESS VILLA
Waking up in the morning in this stunning property was already good enough, but the breakfast setting and selection made my day! 🙂
I really loved the fact that the dining area looks like your own kitchen in front of the ocean. The vibes were great and the staff extremely helpful!
My favorite spot was definitely outdoor!
You can also request to have special lunch or dinner with a private chef!
THE BEACH AND THE VIEWS
Literally in every corner you decide to chill in this villa, you get the best ocean views you can dream of! My favorite (probably) was the living room on the lower floor:
But also chilling on the terrace – near the dining area – was pretty amazing!
Walking down from this terrace, you can easily reach the immense beach.
I was constantly astonished by the beauty and the power of the nature.
Literally from every perspective it is just a pure bliss!
I don’t remember for how long I have been walking on that beach…
This place for me is the quintessential concept of sublime! Hugely recommended!
And you… Are you lusting for the sublime?
