Sondel Beach House Accommodation
The ground floor, besides an adjoining double garage, comprises four double-sized en-suite bedrooms each with twin extra length single beds and overhead silent cooling fan. One of these rooms, any one of the four, can be configured into a king-size bed while one of the bedrooms has a special nook for a large baby’s cot (not provided but can be arranged). Two of these en-suite bedrooms have baths in addition to a shower, toilet and basin.
A kitchenette with microwave, kettle and refrigerator doubles up as a downstairs TV lounge that opens out onto a protected covered patio and overlooks a solar-heated private swimming pool. In close proximity is a boma with surround seating making for pleasant evening get-togethers around a cosy fire. Using this as an outside BBQ / braai area is a popular option. A large canter-levered umbrella provides shade on the pool deck.
A large, spacious open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen is revealed when reaching the upper floor. Weather permitting the lounge can be opened up by stacking the fold-away glass doors to one or other side to create a large entertainment area that flows out onto the surrounding balcony. Included in the lounge is a flat-screen TV, NAD sound system, DVD player and the Explora and DSTV encoders.
The dining room table and chairs provides seating for 12. Two under-counter beverage coolers are within easy reach, so too a hostess food warmer. The fully equipped kitchen includes two combination Bosch Fridge / freezer units, microwave, electric as well as gas cooking hob and an electric oven. Ample crockery and cutlery allows for 18 persons to be catered for in one sitting. The centre island, which houses a reverse osmosis water filtering system and a preparation bowl also provides a serving and seating area for any overflow.
In the adjoining scullery are the usual appliances, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a chest freezer. A counter top ice-making unit is located in this scullery.
The main bedroom is on the upper floor, en-suite with full bathroom including a shower and a spa-bath. Should you wish to watch TV from the comfort of the bed, a TV is located in the cupboard behind a double swing door. This bedroom opens up to one of three upper deck terraces, each facing a different direction.
The sea facing balcony has a built-in gas barbeque. Sit back, relax, watch the ocean, be delighted by dolphins, whales when in season and on occasions orcas, from the sea facing balcony.

We wish that it was not a week ago that we were at Sondel and that we were just arriving. Our stay was magnificent. We all concurred that one of the highlights of our week was the house. You have thought of all the comfort alternatives and we were constantly pleased to find another well considered feature. These included the glass door partitioning, the fans, the ability to shelter from any wind position, the gas braai, plenty of cupboard space, surround sound, fridge near the pool, premium DSTV etc… We were also very appreciative of the little extras you had provided like the flowers on arrival, soap in all the bathrooms, toilet paper, salt and pepper, 30 seconds, cards etc. These all make a great difference. Thank you for making your delightful house available to us and I am sure we will be in contact again quite soon.
