Ocean House

  • 6guests
For the last word in privacy, hire Morukuru Ocean House: an exclusive-use house in the same De Hoop Nature Reserve, a short distance from Morukuru Beach Lodge. Ideal for families and group gatherings, it sleeps up to eight adults and four under-16s, in four ensuite bedrooms and a study that can be converted into a separate children’s bedroom. Like its sister lodge, Ocean House gives a bird’s-eye view of the Overberg Coast – South Africa’s greatest whale nursery – and is surrounding by a 90,000-acre marine reserve with 30 miles of beach-lined shore to explore. It’s fully inclusive, with tailormade activities, guides, butlers, chefs and a team of staff. In short, it’s the best of the Beach Lodge – a pool, fire-warmed lounges, sea-facing rooms – with 100 per cent privacy and (almost) everything included.
