A stone-throw from Cape Town, Elgin’s Happy Houseboat accommodation

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Living in the city, sometimes all you want to do is escape the loud noises and crowds of people and experience something unique, tranquil and happy! Just a stone-throw from Cape Town in the idyllic Elgin Valley, South Hill Wine Estates houseboat Stokies Ark is perfectly poised to offer you all that, and more!

Spending a weekend or longer on South Hill Wine Estate doesn’t only offer you a host of world-class experiences, but also a sense of vastness and serenity, something you can’t easily find so close to home. One of the many South Hill gems is their newly restored houseboat, tucked away on an inland lake, surrounded by vineyards. With its serene location to the chic Scandi-style, this 3-bedroom houseboat is perfect for an off-the-grid getaway allowing you to switch off from your life and take a breath of fresh air.

If you are looking for a family trip, romantic getaway, or just a weekend away with friends, this houseboat is the only place to be. It sleeps 6 adults (or 4 adults and 4 children) and has everything you need from amenities to activities. Picture this: a morning swim, a day filled with games and kayaking (did anyone order an afternoon nap?), a superb wine tasting, an evening braai, and an uninterrupted view of the stars – now doesn’t that sound like a day of dreams?

A dam quite literally at your doorstep, a blissful view of the mountains and not a soul in sight – this getaway is truly one of a kind!
