In need of a break? Then Get South - The Cape's South Peninsula
Life can be a grind... long gone are the days of simple 40hr weeks and 1.15 days off per month.. in order to really succeed you need to eat, breathe and live your industry. You are always on display, always on call.. and it can sometimes feel like you are trapped. Cabin fever sets in!
Fortunately for you, there is this little peninsula in the South of Cape Town. Surrounded by sea on all sides, and mountains in the middle. This sweet little destination, not far from anywhere, is like a step through time and a resetting of the mind. Sun, sea and mountain all in one. Learn to surf, eat good food, play in the caves... dance till the sun comes up.. there is a lot to see and do in this great little part of the world.
Take a break and Get South... there are numerous accommodation options for you when you do. Stay in one of Whale Watcher’s immaculate self-catering beachfront properties along the scenic False Bay coastline.
Guests will enjoy original artworks, hand selected furniture, French-press coffee plungers, and breathtaking panoramic views coupled with top class service.
